It's enthusiasm and positive thinking. The definition of enthusiasm is going out after Moby Dick in a row boat and taking the tartar sauce with you!

I just wanted to ensure that she would definitely get the flowers I thought she would like, instead of them running out of the particular kinds of flowers to make that arrangement and subbing for something else.



I'd normally prefer to a lady out and buy her a thoughtful gift, but since V-Day is on a weekday this year instead of the weekend (where I might actually be able to come up and surprise her, we're both students) I opted for flowers and an Amazon gift card instead.

Just saw it on the menu which reminded me of the one time I tried it, and I really tried it, I tried to make it all the way but just couldn't stand to finish it. A friend told me it is an aquired taste, I told him I won't live that long.

I just can't commit like that.

I have favs in various cateogories.... for music for example, my fav is hard heavy rock, but I don't have any one favorite band, each has its own nuances.

Same for food, each type has its own specialness... LOL, for lack of a better term.

^^^This. We stop at either a dollar store or a Walgreens, etc. Why must Jr. Mints cost $5 at the theater when the same exact box is $1 everywhere else? Sometimes I bring drinks but then my bag looks suspiciously big lol

I think almost all theaters now pop the popcorn but I remember many, many years ago, I saw one of the employees walking with a HUGE bag (it was like 3 feet long) of pre-popped popcorn. They dumped the popcorn in the case so it would warm up. Eww. And then I saw the "butter" topping. It was some processed yellow goop. And they have nerve to charge $4.75 for a small bag of that crap? LOL

Oh I should have guessed! I love that place. I was there not too long ago with my girlfriend...she was moving so I took her for one last "hurrah" and of course, the peanut butter pie (it was her favorite). I've never had a meal there I didn't like.

Taken into account the conditions I listed, probably, but if money wasn't a concern at all Table 16 would be at the top.
Falafel is awful unless you are one who enjoys a reeeaalllly bitter tasting dish.
