I just found out that my blog was linked on They use Feedster to go in and scan blogs and news webpages for updates on a specific topic. I guess my last post on the signing caught their attention. I was wondering why my page was being referred to from a Billy Corgan fan site. I'm wondering if this one will be linked as well.

In other news, my mom's birthday was the other day. I thought I'd be a good son and buy her a nice flower bouquet. Nothing over the top, just some nice fall flowers. All was well and good until my dad put his roses next to mine and all of a sudden my flowers seemed really small. Well, he is married to her, so I suppose he should out do me. At least he better.

I also discovered that there aren't enough fast food places in my area. I pulled off the post-work nap today, so when I woke up at 8, I had no desire to actually prepare food. I took a drive through the neighborhood looking for something to eat. I broke down and went to the Burger King (always a last resort) but had to bail when they didn't take credit cards. So I drove off again, in search of sustenance. I finally came to this plaza and saw a sign stating that their pizza was on sale. I ran in and put in an order and they told me to give them 10 minutes to prepare it. I ended up going in the Giant food store in the same plaza, which was a bad mistake seeing as how I was quite hungry. Let's just say that I have plenty of Hot Pockets (Pizza, Chicken Parmesan, and Apple Strudels) and some Texas Toast garlic bread. What am I going to do with garlic bread? I have no spaghetti making supplies, nor do I really have the intention to purchase any.

One more thing, since I used my card for the pizza they gave me a receipt to sign. However, on the receipt there was a space for a tip. What is the correct procedure here? I admit to the fact that I'm not sure when you're supposed to give a tip. I ended up not giving a tip because I reasoned that tips were given to the driver, so the people behind the counter would never see tip money anyway. What would you folks have done?

    You don't have to leave a tip when you're buying from the counter.

    I wouldn't leave a tip for the cashier at McDonalds, so I think that that's how it works.
