What do ye like -- to go out or to sleep?

For the past two days, I didn't go out for dinner. I myself prepared (cooked?) noodles and ate it. For me, it's more convenient to take noodles than to go out to a restaurant to get something. Of course, I will get a lot of variety to choose from and the quality and taste of the food would be very good in the restaurants. But still, I don't want to go out for my dinner. I am more happy with my noodles. What could be the reason behind it? I know very well that I am lazy. In my family, I am quite often called somberi (Tamil word for a lazy person). I wonder if my being lazy is the reason for me to prefer home-made noodles than any restaurant food. I always like to have freedom; and I want me to hold control of what I do. Can this be a reason for me preferring noodles? When eating from home, I am free to choose when I want to eat. I am free to choose if I want to use my computer or I want to read a book while eating. I can eat in the bedroom, kitchen, hall, wherever I wish. So this could be a reason. Now one more thing comes to my mind. Though I like to go out and visit places, I am happier if I relax in my bed room reading something or browsing the net or sleeping. Even when my friends went to the independence day celebration in San Francisco when I was sleeping, I didn't feel bad. I didn't think for a moment that I missed the opportunity to see those celebrations. I have always been like this. I like to relax rather than to go around visiting places. Is it because I am lazy? Or is it because I am matured enough (like a saint) to be not interested in such amusements? Whatsoever it is, I haven't seen someone like me. If any of you are like me, please let me know. I want to discuss this with you. I am curious to know why I am like this....
