    No, you don’t need to tip the gas station attendant.

    Yes, you should tip the guy at least 20% of the price. ;o) Nah. I love not pumping my own gas! It’s about the only thing I love about living in New Jersey, besides living 1/2 hour from the beach. Happy New Year!

    You scared me, Ciar! I was about to never go to Jersey! No computer six years ago!? Wow. I thought I was delayed not getting one until 12 years ago. Good Lord am I getting that old?

    Don’t tip the gas attendant. No one does. I commute between PA and NJ everyday for work. I find it’s faster to pump your own gas, but somedays when it’s painfully cold or raining like crazy, I don’t mind the slowness.

    I, too “got rid of” my small daughter for New Year’s Eve. We stayed in and watched the whole Bourne Trilogy. Much fun.

    In Oregon it is also illegal to pump you own gas. No tips for the gas jockeys–with our road taxes they already charge an arm and a leg for gas here. I can’t imagine having to pump my own gas–getting that smell on my hands and clothes, endangering myself by standing outside the safety of my locked car if I have to get gas at night. Ick. One reason I hate driving to Washington or Californina LOL.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
