Isabel10, this is a repeat of a topic (#16743) you posted on 15 April 2016. I am therefore locking this topic but will bump your older one.

Isabel10, I'll bet you mother used to get furious at people rustling sweet papers in the cinema.

Newbeat, I also only go to the the movies very rarely - in fact the last time was to see the original Kingsman, and that was released in 2014! Most of my favourite films are in black and white and feature people like Bogart, Cary Grant and Monty Woolley.

I usually buy my snacks at the cinema, even though I know I'm going to be ripped off.

I'm going to see Kingsman: The Golden Circle. I want to see how the late Colin Firth was reanimated!

We have only two house plants, one a tiny cactus in our kitchen window, one a lily that lives in our bathroom. We do also have two attractive bunches of rosebuds made from wood shavings, and some silk flowers of the island of Madeira.

It's a cliche that, especially with the many 'instant celebrity' TV shows and lotteries these days, people say they want to be rich and famous. Does this appeal to you? (Feel free to say how you'd like to achieve that status.)

I would love to be rich, but I wouldn't thank you for fame. The idea of people stopping me in the street for selfies and autographs, of being mobbed in public, or being stalked by the paparazzi, absolutely appals me. Even with all my wealth (I don't care by what moral method I would have acquired it!) I still want to be able to schlep anonymously around a supermarket, dressed in my cheap tatty jeans and charity store T-shirt.

I'm going to translate as I go along here for our Transatlantic brethren!

I'm going to the pictures (movies) tomorrow and because I'm dieting I'm going to have to miss out on my usual treats. What's your favourite snack when you visit the cinema (movie theater)? In Britain the choices can include:

giant tubs of popcorn (plain, salted or toffee);
hot dogs;
burgers;
nachos;
large bags of sweets (candy);
huge vats of Pepsi (regular, Zero or Max) or coffee;
Slush Puppies (thick frozen fruity drinks it takes an industrial vacuum cleaner to suck through a straw).
mini pizzas;
churros sticks.

Feel free to add any other items you can buy in such places.

I think it's entirely up to her, maybe sexual satisfaction is very important to her and she didn't fancy spending potentially the rest of her life with a man who couldn't give her what she needed. Anyway, in my experience there's rarely just one reason for a break-up, perhaps she just picked on that one to undermine his self-esteem.

At the end of the day though, it's her life, she has free will, and I don't feel I have any right to presume to judge her for the decision she has made.

Sorry but yes, it's coming up to that time of year again. Have you started to get your arrangements in place yet for this Christmas?

In my office we've started talking about our Christmas meal, which is starting to look as if it will take place on November 24th(!). I'm trying to stave off the prospect of a 'bring a party to a party' booking, a form of event I detest. We're also starting on our Secret Santa draw. We have to each buy a drinking vessel for the person we get which reflects their tastes or their nature - I hope I get someone I've got worked out!

At home I'm starting to get my gifts together to send off to various overseas friends (yes, I know it's early but after one to Brazil previously took seven months to arrive...) and hoping the postage doesn't cost more than the gifts! In the first week of December I'm visiting the historic city of York to take in its Christmas market, and no doubt at some point I'll make my annual pilgrimage to Edinburgh's vast Bavarian market.

At the moment I'm alternating between Karin Slaughter, Barbara Nadel and Donna Leon, having bought two of each from Amazon. Next up is a history of East European Communism, unless the Stuart MacBride I have on order turns up early.
