One of the great things about my current life situation is that I often find myself around free food. It seems like almost every think tank in town has deep pockets and can put on a gourmet spread for its guests, totally gratis. Usually the food is quite good. On rarer occasions, I am invited out to lunch at a top-notch restaurant.
Truly, I could complain about my lot in life for hours, days even, if necessary. The free food thing though, makes up for much of my "woes".
