I also only drink water, never juice or soda. I purify water and boil it every day so I have some to drink at any time.

I don't have to go through that trouble because our tap water is perfectly safe and tasty, but I nearly always take some with me when I leave the house. In fact, when eating lunch when out shopping with friends/family I won't order anything to drink, because it's much cheaper to drink the water I brought with me after we leave.

I eat two meals a day at most,  unless I have stuff that goes on all day (like a full day's surgery), in which case I require three meals. Generally though, I have a small breakfast and a huge lunch, which I just kind of digest until I go to sleep. Some days I don't even eat breakfast, just lunch. This habit led to one of my ex-girlfriends' nicknaming me "Camel," which I resented greatly.

I also only drink water, never juice or soda. I purify water and boil it every day so I have some to drink at any time. Though, this is also made up by the fact that I drink alcohol viciously at least once a month and kill my wallet in one night.



Why do you do this? Where do you live?

I've moved around in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

You do not want to drink the tap water at any of these areas. You will die.

Understood. For some reason I thought you lived in LA.

Of course I have no basis for that. It's just a gut feeling I had

If it makes you feel any better, I had a brief stint in UCI and grew up in Northern California, so you weren't far off the mark anyway.

The only thing that can make me feel better is if my Assassin's Creed 2 save reappeared. But thanks.

I buy tobacco instead of factory made cigarettes, I was a student and it was alot cheaper, now it's just a bad habbit. I always take my wine/beer to restaurants that allow it,

There is nothing cheap about rolling your own cigarettes. Also, BYOB is awesome.
