Exactly. T:
Oddly enough, I can eat more fast food than restaurant stuff. Stuff you wouldn't expect (like McDonald's hamburgers) are natural.

Bring that snow over here to Florida Live. We would love to have it (actually I'm sure the people who come down here for the winter won't but who cares about them).

Gave someone a 6.66 tip once on purpose!

I need to use my Fandango Giftcard to go see some movies. I'm thinking The Hobbit and Django Unchained.

Les Miserables

Isn't that like

How disappointed I was when I found out the artificial Disney snow was bubble foam.

And if I'm not feeling especially dickish when I tip I'll generally give them 15% or more like I'm supposed to.

Oh and speaking of tips my grandparents went out to eat yesterday and had no idea how to tip and gave $3 on a $60 bill lol

Needless to say they will not forget that look on his face apparently.

The Hobbit was fun, but I'm really looking forward to seeing Hitchcock. Ever since I heard it was a thing I wanted to see it.

    I'm only interested in seeing Lincoln really. I'm not a movie guy. I have enough trouble finishing hour long shows like Dexter and Gamecenter CX, as good as they are.

    I feel so weird when people talk about customary tips that even go for percentages of their bills- here tips are considered a reward and if they go over €1 (even for a 10-people massive dinner), the waiters can consider themselves happy.

    Traditions I guess.

      Every place kinda differs... some places yes the tips are for extra rewards, while some others the tips are expected as you're paying them for their services directly (and not through paying for the food, and the restaurant pays their staff.) I am relatively cheap and I pay around 10%, while someone online was rather upset at me about it as he tips 17.5%... so heh.

      As for movies just never a big movie type of guy... not a lot of people to go with maybe the cause of it XD

      Well, I know in my case, we're paid below minimum wage. I guess the tips are supposed to make up for that? Idk. It's kind of a wonky system.

      It snowed here on my birthday. It was magical. (I stayed inside the entire time~)
      I'm actually going to go see Les Mis with an old friend from high school tonight, and then we're going to a club to see my friend perform in a drag show. Then..probably a bar? It's pretty exciting because this is my first time to go to a bar as I just turned 21. :B

      I really wanted to see Lincoln, but never got around to it. :C

      Wow, lots of snow on the way. 3-6 inches for all of Pennsylvania. This will be a great opportunity to test my new camera some more.

      I'm definitely interested in seeing Les Miserables. I'm really into movie adaptations of history novels/musicals (since the book came first, then the musical, then the movie) and while I've not read the book or seen the musical, it looks like it'd be worth going to see. Also Amanda Seyfried <33

        Well, bear in mind that Lincoln is a 2 1/2 hour talky extravaganza. I'm not its biggest fan (although I loved Daniel Day-Lewis and the way it looked) but I'm aware that I'm definitely in the minority on this one. :O

        Maybe seeing Les Miserable today. I hear good things about it, so im sure it'll be great.

        The movie is too late today, so seeing it tomorrow, which also happens to be my sister's birthday.

        I would love to go and see Les Mes but I just saw the Hobbit earlier this week and my family, unless we're going with a friend, tend to be on this 'one movie a year' sort of deal due to how much they are. Though since my brother missed seeing the Hobbit with us (we thought he was going to see it with his friend but apparently his friend had already saw it guh) he'll be going to see that today and we're... probably going to go carpet shopping or something?? idek anymore since who knows when my sister is going to wake up.

            I had no idea there was a new movie adaptation for Les Mis. I'm too busy being safe and cozy under my rock to know what's going on in the world. I'm curious about it, but I refuse to pay 17$ to see any movie

            Yeah I skipped The Hobbit to watch Les Mis because I'm the same way about movies - it was Les Mis or The Hobbit.

              I'd be more concern about the movie watchers' demands for pure original movies (Star Wars, E.T., Inception, etc) rather than movies based on history novels/musicals, because those people would mark the end of Hollywood and the beginning of the Moviepocalypse, as suggested by the Movie Preview Critic.

                  Um no, perhaps I should go into more detail. The people who demand more original movies believe that if Hollywood were to continue making movies based off of books, comics, TV shows, plays, musicals, and toy lines, as well as remakes and sequels to previous movies, it would mark the end of Hollywood as we know it. That's what I'm trying to say.
