Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

and yeah i felt it was too good an opportunity to miss. I will be taking the first exam before i start my work but after that it will be simultaneous as you say.

As for the cold weather - i think it warmed up outside a bit today, with some snow melting. Colder inside could be down to a few things none of which i know for certain are making it colder but i think altogether are. I live in the loft/attic room which has no insulation in the walls so heat just goes straight out. Also we live above an alley so beneath us is just cold air which i think has some effect, the floors feel colder.

Obviously we dont have the heating on for this to happen - simply cant afford it, but honestly it hasnt been much of a problem as we have blankets etc.

Oh has anyone ever heard of a supermarket called company shop? This is in the UK. I only recently discovered it but its amazing! living like a king on a peasants budget, lol.

Anyway, i hope you have had a good weekend (got up to anything exciting or just relaxed) and kept warmer than me, lol.

That would explain it! [In reply to] Can't Post

Attics are rarely insulated, no wonder it would get cold in there!

I haven't heard of "company shop" over here, is it like a large warehouse, or a minimum-service market?

I've just come back from AUJ #5! I took an older friend to see it, it was her second viewing, and she's been a Tolkien fan for years. Strange to be driving along, discussing Morgoth and Numenor and Farmer Giles! Laugh I'd have her join the Boards here, but she has no computer...yet...

Company shop [In reply to] Can't Post

It is a strange name isn't it? I just checked out how many there are (i assumed quite a few) but there are only 3 Blush. They are for people working in the NHS, police, fire service and perhaps military to come and get food which is getting close to sell by/use by date (most things are within a week or so) and it has come from all the other major supermarkets - what i like is it lets me get a taste of food from M&S and Waitrose but without the high prices - food gets reduced in price by as much as 90%, e.g. i bought 10 cheesecakes for the price of 1, lol! its crazy, if anyone can go i would recommend it to them. Its just a shame i will be moving away soon just as i found the place!

That sounds like awesome fun with your friend, i dont think i have had a full on M-e talk with someone in real life for months, very jealous, haha Tongue

And 5 times, is that in different viewing formats? I wonder how much money it has made from repeat viewings compared to one time only viewings. This site skews my perspective on it as so many people have seen it many times.

Grocery thrift store [In reply to] Can't Post

That's like the bakery thrift stores and grocery thrift stores one can find over here. They're not very common, but do offer great bargains. What in the world are you going to do with 10 cheesecakes, LOL!

I had surgery on my right eye a few months ago and it's still recovering (low pressure inside the eye is causing "echos" and "waves" of what I see, it's a condition lenses can't correct), so since I have only one "good" eye, I've had to limit my Hobbit viewings to 2D. I would have liked to have seen it in the hfr 3D.

I wonder what percentage of movie viewers are the repeat viewers?
