    Totally agree. The characters were not as lovable, and although I did enjoy it, it was definitely not as good as valentines day. Totally not worth the movie theater price…save it for on demand. I think it was missing a pure hearted child like in vday. Abigail breslin was just a bit too old to steal our hearts like that cutie who was trying to send flowers to his teacher.

    Boo to that movie sucking…I kinda saw that coming though. I LOVE Love Actually…”I feel it in my fingers”…

    And Boo to the guy for making you move. they sat you at that table!!! I like being alone sometimes too, especially with the craziness of the holiday season.

    OMG, you denied free cobbler from Kloiblers? Are you crazy? That’s the best part of going to eat there!!!

    Oh bummer- I wanted to see that and I was reallllly hoping it was going to be good. Although I had my suspicions it wouldn’t live up the hype. πŸ˜‰

    Oh wow…I totally disagree on New Year’s Eve. Yes, it’s a cheesy romantic comedy sort of film, but I saw it Wednesday with friends and LOVED it! I think it’s definitely worth going to the theater – $6 was totally worth the cheap entertainment. πŸ˜‰

    I read What Alice Forgot a few months ago. It was a really good read. I hope you enjoy it. I am disappointed to hear your movie review, it looked like it had such good potential for a girls night out.

    I hadn’t even heard of this movie! This is what happens when you don’t have cable…totally out of the loop. Good to know though, I’ll wait for Redbox or Netflix.

    I don’t think I could EVER eat at a restaurant on my own without entertainment. My laptop, a book, a magazine, what have you. I am so scatterbrained.

    I would have taken the free cobbler. Hehe.

    I was traveling alone on business once and went out to dinner by myself for the first time ever. I was SO nervous and felt like everyone was watching me. I enjoyed my food, but kept my nose in my book. I feel like it was a small victory though, because I can go out alone now, and think nothing of it!

    And, I completely agree with you about New Years Eve. TERRIBLE movie!!! I don’t understand how ALL of those celebrities agreed to be in it!!!

    I just went on a business trip to Washington DC last week and had to eat alone for a lot of meals. I used to eat by myself in college, but after graduating a few years ago, I haven’t. It was OK, but as I was sitting at a table in a restaurant reading a book on my kindle, I couldn’t help but wonder if the servers were disappointed I was a “party of 1”!

    I thinks it’s baller of you to eat solo. My husband deployed this summer, and I’ve only gone out to eat alone once. It wasn’t bad, but it took me a while to work up the nerve. Plus, eating with other people is just more fun.*

    No shame, girl. I moved to a new city 6 months ago and have done plenty of eating, shopping, etc. alone. I think it’s a kind of empowering!

    “The server offered free cobbler when I moved tables, but I politely declined and had an apple for dessert when I got home instead.”

    whaaat???

    I think it was pretty crappy of them to move your table – why did they seat you at a table for 4 to begin with? Pretty tacky if you ask me. And you should have taken the cobbler to go πŸ˜‰

    Its been one of my goals in life to eat alone at a restaurant. So far I’ve only managed the food court πŸ™‚

    FYI – woke up with a backache @ 3:30am and delivered my son @ 7:15am after zero contractions felt & 3 pushes and my daughter after 45 minutes of noticeable contractions & 3 pushes. I am one of the lucky women others love to hate. πŸ™‚

    As much as I know it’s going to be a cheese-fest, I really want to see NYE – I’m planning on waiting a few weeks until it goes to the cheap theater. I love the big screen feeling, but this way it’s only $4!

    “I really, really wanted to like this movie.” I think that was your first problem.

    I haven’t seen the movie but I did give birth in 3 hours…from first contraction to delivery. The second was a little longer at 3.5 hours!!

    I enjoy eating alone sometime, especially with a book. πŸ™‚ It’s kind of nice to enjoy your own company in a restaurant every once in a while!

    Thanks for the movie review—that’s what I’ve been hearing. Sigh. I really, really want to like it too!! But I didn’t like Valentines Day at all…

    I would have been very annoyed if they asked me to move tables, they should have sat you at a smaller table in the first place or just dealt with their mistake
