    As amusing as this thread is, it really has gone pretty far afield.

    And now I will do absolutely nothing to bring it back to the original subject.... if someone likes caramel popcorn, they might like Kettle Korn. It's my favorite. :D

    I didn't know what McDonald's was supposed to taste like until I ate it in Russia. ;)

    Does Leonova use egg cups?

    Yes, but she doesn't eat eggs -- she has borscht served in her collection of Delft egg cups.

    ETA: Re popcorn -- when I used to make it at home, I like to sprinkle it with Parmesan cheese. Now I just indulge in buying the kettle corn (and caramel corn) made and sold at the local farmers market.

    Most movie theaters make no money on the admission charge. Their entire profit margin comes from what they sell at the concession stand. That's why it's higher.

    i liked it when theaters sold soundtracks in the lobby, that had to be a profit

    If cinemas don't charge for the tickets, how do they pay the producers of the movies? Do they give them a percentage from the popcorn sales? :confused:

    The idea of chocolate on popcorn is intriguing. Sweet and salty. Mmmmmmm.

    By plain I mean air popped with a drizzle of NON-extra virgin olive oil and some salt. Regular olive oil doesn't have a ton of flavor and I am too health conscious to use butter.

    I've always wondered how kettle corn is different. Tastes the same to me.

    They do charge money for the tickets- but they make no money on them; that is, no profit. The cost of a ticket doesn't even cover what it costs to buy the movie to show, much less employees and overhead charges such as rent and utilities. The concession stands are what make profit for the theaters.

    It sounds like she's become a typical American twenty-something! :)

    She'd find better apples if she branched out to some of the red ones :)

    Starbucks and green apples? I don't think there's a big enough rolling eyes emoticon to express my sentiments! :lol: She sounds absolutely ridiculous. Has she ever heard of ordering a salad with dressing on the side? And, btw, Starbucks serves their salads with the dressing in a separate container. I guess Alena didn't notice because she was too weakened from the lack of food ...

    O-

    Her diet sounds a lot like Johnny Weir's. Maybe that's why he likes Russia so much. :lol:

    So do all fast-food restaurants but I have never been able to stop myself from opening the container and emptying the entire contents on the salad. :drama:
    Maybe Alena suffers from the same lack of willpower. ;)

    I think she suffers from disordered eating but that's a whole other ball of wax.

    And I think she needs to move to San Francisco, hire Brian Boitano as her coach, and have him teach her how to cook for herself and eat sensibly. :hat1:

    Heh, if not for that whole long thread a few years ago explaining what an egg cup was, I might have thought this was a feminine hygene product.

    It seems so many regress when they go to Morozov. Takahashi, Amodio and leonova did not do well at worlds... I wonder if lessened coach attention is the real issue there? Also I and R for ice dancing

    Which one of his pupils did well? None right? Isn't that saying something?

    Yagudin didn't do badly. Of course Tatiana was part of that.
