Table for One.. Please??

Since my husband has started working nights and I work all day, I only see him in passing on my way to work. By the time I get home from, he is long gone. Which means I am left to do my own thing most nights.
The other night I decided to go to IHOP for dinner. I brought my book so I could read whilst eating, and just hang out for awhile after I was done eating. When I walked in the hostess asked how many in my party. I said just one. She looked at me like I just committed the biggest social fuax puax! Of course my waiter also looked at me the same way, especially when I pulled out my book..
Is it not okay to go dine by yourself anymore? Is it that big of a deal to eat alone? Is it crazy to want to read a book while eating by yourself? They can keep looking at me like I'm crazy because I'm going to keep on reading and dining by myself!
Also, don't forget to sign up for my giveaway! You have until tomorrow!!

I have no problem eating by myself. In fact, I kind of miss it. Back in Eugene (I know, 9 years ago) I'd LOVE going out to dinner and a movie by myself. I was my own best date :)
