I SO wish I could see NYCB's Nutcracker. We have Carolina Ballet and they do a beautiful version. I've done ballet since I was 3, it is my true love...

I have been in The Nutcracker countless times with Raleigh's City Ballet but I also got to do company roles with Carolina Ballet when I was 13, which was quite the experience.

EDIT: I miss it. I wish I could have been a professional.... I hate the dance program at my school. We don't ever dance dance. Performing really makes me the happiest though.

So tonight at my restaurant [where I work, etcetera] my friend/coworker bid farewell to a table by saying "Thankyou so much, Happy Holidays", since, obviously, why would you say "Merry Xmas" to the average person coming in when the chance of them celebrating Xmas is as likely as it is slim?

So essentially, it was a $100+ bill, and on the credit card slip where they leave a tip, they stiffed her out of a tip [that means NO tip, kids] and drew an arrow to the bottom where they wrote: "Keep the Christ in Christmas"

To quote Dr. Cox: ah-aaaaaayyyyy holes!

Actually 96% of Americans celebrate Christmas. But yea that was an asshole move not giving a tip.

It snowed here today! Not enough to see but we are getting more tonight. Over in Greensboro though they are getting a foot! Lucky.

Not leaving a tip is definitely not keeping Christ in anything. That was not the best way to make their point. And in a public setting, "Happy Holidays" is just the safest way to go, so the customer should have been understanding.

So the 4% that don't aren't of importance?
