    Favourite food regions

    Love Indian food - we have curries probably 3 times a week. We also have quite a bit of Italian food, pasta dishes and risottos. Looking at the bookshelf, it seems to be largely Indian and Italian books. Japanese food is always really good as well - have been to a few restaurants now and am working my way through some of the recipes in a book my wife gave me last year.

    The GF book thread

    Great list that @Sugar Ape, thank you. I've a couple on my shelf from there that I've not gotten round to - Hekla's Children and The Hunger, definitely, and I might have a copy of The Reddening. I've read My Best Friend's Exorcism and can wholeheartedly recommend it - it's a really fun book. My Kindle is absolutely killing me as I'll see a book recommended and pick it up "for later", or dip into the deals section and grab two or three reduced titles. My to read list just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I've even gotten to the point where I'll see a book mentioned, go to buy it and get the "You bought this book on [...]" notification. I'm fighting the urge here to grab some more based on your list, mate.

    The GF book thread

    I used to really enjoy the Sharpe novels. I found them to be a nice counterpoint to the aritoctratic poltroon that is Flashman. I've just reread Mr Mercedes and have started the first short story in Scott Snyder's Voodoo Heart collection. Still also reading that history of cancer and have started reading William Strunk's Elements of Style to freshen up on grammar before getting back to teaching writing when the kids get back in.

    Star Wars

    There was no plan for the films. JJ Abrams threw out Lucas's plotline for three films and set up questions with no answers in TFA. Rian Johnson has said he was surprised to come to the second film and be told do what you want. Then after he made so many drastic changes to the direction of the trilogy and there was such a divide in opinion on it, they threw out Treverrow and the script he had developed in favour of what they saw a safe pair of hands, who then undid the best thing in Last Jedi (the idea that Rey was a nobody - that anyone could be a hero) by having Rey related to already established characters.

    Star Wars

    I read something recently comparing Luke's approach to the Emperor with Rey's, arguing (correctly) that Jedi's seeing Luke throw his lightsabre away to rely on love and compassion for his father to defeat the Emperor versus Rey's I'm Every Jedi moment followed by a Hadoken to the chops is far superior.

    Make a killing in the current environment for his leash-holders?

    That's a costume she wears in Rear Window. She never looked more beautiful than during that slow motion intro when she wakes up Jimmy Stewart with a kiss.

    Ninja and the Scared Birds

    He's a grownup, mate. It's his job to put them there.

    Ninja and the Scared Birds

    I was talking to the fella whose garden backs onto ours the other day. He said he found about a dozen cat collars under a shrub when he was clearing up. I wouldn't bother with collars, they get them off straight away.

    Board Games

    My brother's got that. He said it's a decent game.

    Audiobooks

    All available on Audible and other sites. American Werewolf isn't up for sale anywhere but I got a tape of it off ebay years ago and it's on Youtube.

    Board Games

    What's X Wing like? I've been thinking of getting a copy for myself. I've played Armada with my brother and quite enjoyed that. Rebellion is boss, but it takes about an hour to set up and an hour and a half to put away with three hours of play in between. Since lockdown, the game I've been playing is Imperial Assault, via the app. It's not perfect but is pretty fun.

    I love "standing in the way". They're doing right by their members by ensuring we have safe working conditions.
