Like JS, I have never watched any if the Star Wars films, and like HP I never want to! Similarly with the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Life is just too short.

I have never learnt to play a musical instrument, not even the recorder. I have Van Gogh's ear for music.

I have - it's wonderful! I have a recipe for apple pie with Wensleydale cheese included. But even better is Wensleydale with Christmas cake.

(Might wander over to the Food thread...hmm)

I have never had a good night's sleep as an adult if anyone else is in the room. No racey reasons for this - just noise sensitivity. And not only snoring - even the sound of someone else BREATHING keeps me awake.

I have. And Col's right, it works a treat. I think it's a northern thing, isn't it? Certainly my yorkshire relatives all eat this at times. Another Yorkshire thing is to have your yorkshire pud as a first course. The idea is that it fills you up and so you don't require as much roast meat to fill you up - which is a lot more expensive than cheap, cheerful crispy batter!

Yes, it's a North Yorkshire thing. The Yorkshire pud thing is also North Yorks/Country Durham. I certainly grew up with it, and have come across it when other people have invited us to Sunday dinner.
