Tonight we went to Ted's Montana Grill for dinner. We sat there for over 10 minutes before the manager came over to apologize and take our order. Our waitress, Megan, kept forgetting our drinks after that. The establishment did take over $5 off our bill for the inconvenience and they made sure that we were out in time for our 7:40pm movie. We saw War of the Worlds which was pretty good. I jumped a few times from some unexpected noises. I probably wouldn't take a child under the age of 15 or 16 to it, though. I've heard stories of entire families going and regretting it because the kids were too young.

Today I finished reading 45 Master Characters: Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters. It was the kind of book I'd been looking for regarding archetypes. It had female and male archetypes with information on each archetype, it's opposite, assets, flaws, and examples from tv, movies and literature.
