Trine and Jade - Sorry you guys are feeling a bit sad today. Imagine yourself getting one of these.
Erika + Jen - If only we could convert CCP to flights for Trine, Jade and Me to come to RobCon!
Ash + Julie - I love the new banner. Its so gorge esp with the green floral design laced through it.
Glad some of you are having such good RobDreams. A liitle bit of DarkWard and ExWard are certainly good inspiration.
Trine - Thanks for posting the eyes pic again. I had lost that one from my collection.
Speaking of New Moon I forgot to tell you all I got about the delivery we got into my work the other day. A large poster stand which holds approx 50 different posters.
Poster 1 - New Moon. Poster 2 - New Moon Edward. Poster 3 - Twilight. Its right at the end of the counter!! So now I can look at it all day every day! (Well, apart from when I have customers to serve!)
Tipping - I am a Brit so will comment as to how things are mostly done here. In some restaurants a service charge is added to the bill of approx 12-15%. If you feel you were given particularly good service it is customary to add some extra to this. Some places add the service charge automatically if there are more than 6 diners. It is not customary to tip in every eating establishment here. Some people in Britain have real issues with tipping hence the reason we sometimes get a bad rep throughout the world. The average would be approx 10%. I generally give 10-20% depending on the service. I have had many arguments over here with people I have had dinner with about leaving a tip, either because they don’t want to or because it is so little that its an insult, on these occasions I end up just putting my own money down and make a mental note to not go out to dine with that person again. I have been in the States about 4/5 times now and know that it is customary to tip. I have family that live there so am aware how much some people rely on their tips. My Uncle has me well trained to always have some the notes in my purse for such circumstances. When I have been there I go with the standard 20% rounding things up appropriately. I have visited a few different states and never found it to be an issue. However, last year when I was in NYC, I found it extremely uncomfortable at times as I felt some people staring and standing waiting on it.
