Jul 28th 2011 3:36AM well, i read thrillers, and don't find them moronic ... but i was going to say nearly the same thing about the novels as i have also read them both. to use your word, i thought it moronic to assume that no one had.
isn't archer also a character name on the television show "private practice"?

Jun 23rd 2011 2:18AM i think the media do a misservice with their word choices. let's face it, the minute he got into that car with his bal as high as it was, he was on a suicide mission. he wasn't killed by the wrecking of the car, he was killed by his irresponsibility.
Jun 23rd 2011 1:57AM i'm confused and maybe just reading this incorrectly, but the article says that his bal was .196 and say that is nearly double the legal limit of .08 (double of which, i believe, would be .16). isn't .196 more than double?
Apr 6th 2011 7:38AM stupid banal story, but for what reason should suri receive a smack on her bottom? if the child is spoiled, it's thru no fault of her own.
Sep 2nd 2010 10:18PM oh, honey, i agree with you 100%. i hate to be asked for a tip. i had a delivery person ask me one day after i handed her money for my order "how much do you want back from this?" i was so pissed i said, "ALL OF IT!" and don't get me started on garbage collectors; as a non-tenured college instructor with two advanced degrees, the garbage collectors in my town make more money than i do. not a job i'd want to do, but tip them??? no way!

1--when i go out to dinner (rare these days) i usually tip based on SERVICE received. this is, afterall, why it's called the service industry, n'est ce pas? i never leave no tip ... if service is terrible i have left a one penny tip ... altho i've only done that a few times. besides tipping for good service, i always make a point of informing the manager about the great service and often have gone online to leave a message specifically related to the particular waitperson who provided the great service. does this mean anything? at one particular restaurant a friend and i frequented we had our drinks by the time we were seated and our appetizer order wasnsatisfactory service, but a long time ago i made it my personal mission to COMPLIMENT ten times for every COMPLAINT. sometimes that means looking for the good, catching people doing well.
2--i have three college degrees and i paid for each of them myself through scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans. so i have little sympathy for people who complain that they HAVE to put their kids through college.
3--i know some waitstaff get upset when i send something back for something that seems minor (e.g. some item on a salad that i requested be left off). however since i have several severe food allergies, i often can't just remove the unwanted item. i learned that lesson well one evening as i was being rushed by ambulance to the hospital in anaphylactic shock after "just removing" the offending item.
4--i am happy to report that i find service good to outstanding much more often than i find it terrible and so tip accordingly.
Nov 17th 2009 2:29AM gotta say i have a hard time working up much sadness for a person who, while living with a strict budget, can pay $120 to have your hair done. if you can pay that much then you should tip well.
