Re: Do men hit on you?

Sometimes yes. Some men do turn their heads to check me out on the street and at least twice in the last few months, when we have been out at a bar, my husband has come back from getting drinks to find someone trying to chat me up. I think I'm a little more than averagely attractive for my age, I lo...

Re: Europe trip -- where to go?

You can't go to Belgium and miss Bruges. It is becoming very, very crowded however. If your husband loves beer make sure you visit T'Arendsnest in Amsterdam, Delerium in Brussels and T'Brugs Beertje in Bruges. Prague is delightful, but is not really close to Brussels, it's on the other side of Germa...

Re: Is this Tiffany Gold Infinity Ring Real?

I'm voting fake actually. To me, the print on the bag is slightly wonky, authentic Tiffany packaging is as perfect as their jewellery. Also, the packaging seems slightly too green, rather than true Tiffany blue. IMO, the counterfeiters get it nearly right, they just don't get quite the right hue. I'...

Re: Double charged by hotel through Expedia booking - help!

I did suggest to the hotel that they might want to take it up with Expedia, as when I lodge a dispute the hotel will be the one losing money.

Thanks everyone!

Re: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

Smoothie here too, my usual - half a banana, a handful of berries, almond milk and non-fat greek yoghurt.

Preceeded by a glass of hot water with lemon and followed by a cup of green tea.

I have a Kitchenaid blender, it smoothies well.

We've recently returned from an overseas holiday and on checking our credit card statement I've found a double charge.

Re: What do you wear to work?

Dress pants, a nice dressy tank and a cardigan. And black knee-his with black flat close-toed shoes. I work in a hospital and have to cover all my tattoos. I don't mind, though, since it's always FREEZING in my office. In the summer, I shed the cardigan and switch to flip-flops when I leave, so I'm...

Re: What do you think of vow renewal ceremonies?

Re: Have you had any cosmetic procedures or surgery?

Re: Is it legal for restaurants to add automatic gratuity...

We regularly receive good service in the restaurants we frequent, but I agree that in more casual cafes it can be unreliable, student waiters etc. I guess it also depends on what you consider good service.

Re: Is it legal for restaurants to add automatic gratuity...

If they had removed the gratuity and then raised minimum wage.... imagine what the cost of food and services will be? Probably what we pay here in Australia!
