Same here, would love a dog or cat but out too much of the day and away weekends - so really not fair.
I like here, though not right now as it’s chucking it down with rain and slightly envious of your sun - maybe in later life I can be a swallow and switch between the two. If it wasn’t so expensive I would happily live in Sweden or Denmark.

I've never left a film early. Though I did fall asleep during The Phantom Menace. Films at home tend to be a background thing unless I'm watching with someone else so it's unlikely I'd choose to watch something particularly bad. There have been several occasions when they've been watching something and I decided halfway through to find something better to occupy my time with.
First vinyl single bought? America - A Horse With No Name First cassette single bought? Never bought a single, but 1st album - America - America First CD single bought? Again no singles but album was Manic Street Preachers - Everything Must Go First single downloaded from iTunes? Not much, David Bowie - Where are we now

Chicken and mushroom, though I'm generally happy with anything that doesn't involve onions, pineapple or peppers (don't mind the last one, just not on a pizza).
I haven't done a huge amount of travelling but I enjoyed visiting Dublin. Basel was very nice too, especially as in Switzerland they use real cheese in McDonalds, rather than the plastic stuff you get over here.
A: The first instalment of Stieg Larssons “Girl” series “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” was utterly gripping for me. I bought it on 3 for a tenner as a filler on a Waterstones deal - and read it from cover to cover on a particularly bad holiday in Egypt in one day. The others were a bit meh - but the first one you almost felt sorry for her, but it’s one of those books where there really is no likeable characters, but the storyline is brilliant. A bit like Dr Foster.
Other mentions: Ayn Rand - Fountainhead, Albert Camus - The Plague (he provided stats as well as updates so ticked that nerdy box for me)
