This should be interesting.
Ok. What the hell.
This is how freaken crazy GU is:
One of my movie buddies is this hardcore rocker/metal person. He had his own band and everything. He's got the long hair look and all of the above basically. Not to forget, he's a CHEM major PREMED. He also loves baseball (wtf?) and he's a host for Georgetown Radio. Yes. What the hell. Way to completely throw off every stereotype ever.
He should be honored that I dedicated this entry to him.

Friday evening, we're invited to our Romanian friends' house for dinner. I decided it would be polite to do some research on their dinner manners, although it's not too different from the Germans. Research showed that yes it is like Germans... and like the good old Persians! Anyway, indulge in my findings, it's for your benefits, as some of the manners should be internationally known.
#13 is definitely Persian. #11 one of my biggest pet-peeves, that is when people don't follow # 11.
1. Arrive on time if invited to dinner.
2.You may arrive up to 15 minutes late for a party.
3.Dress in clothes you might wear to the office.
4.Check to see if there are shoes at the front door. If so, remove yours.
5.Expect to be treated with great honour and respect.
6.Table manners follow established protocols of good behaviour.
7.Wait to be told where to sit. There may be a seating plan.
8. Table manners are Continental -- hold the fork in the left hand and the knife in the right while eating.
9. Leave your napkin on the table. Do not put it in your lap.
10.Wait for the host or hostess to say “pofta buna” (good appetite) before you begin eating.
11. Always keep your hands visible when eating. Keep your wrists resting on the edge of the table.
12.Expect to be offered second and even third helpings.
13.You will have to insist that you cannot eat any more, as refusals are seen as good manners and are not taken seriously.
14.It is acceptable to soak up extra sauce or gravy on your plate with your bread.
15.To indicate you have not finished eating, cross your knife and fork on your plate.
16.When you have finished eating, place your knife and fork across your plate with the prongs facing down and the handles facing to the right.
P.S. I think I need new pictures of Garou...a change is dire!
