    Fiat Topolino

    I had a couple of Fiats when I had just passed my test. I sold the first one for some princely sum, and a few weeks later spotted it sporting a 'Recycled Ferrari' sticker.

    Is it selfish ipso facto to be a billionaire?

    I could probably eat a whole Boston cream pie by myself. (Followed by a few hours consumed with self-loathing )

    More recycling:

    Which appeals to you more:

    A night in a casino winning lots of money
    or
    Making love on a tropical beach under the stars and with a breeze in the palm trees?

    There was NEVER any sex in Barbara Cartland. I thought this was well-known, even to those, who like me, who don't read that brand of romantic fiction. She used to proclaim, "All my heroines are virgins."

    It was a serious question. I'd like to know who would choose the second option.

    1) I'd choose the second, but I could use the money. (With that attitude, it's a wonder I'm not the Empress of FSU. )
    2) Artistic gymnastics doesn't interest me, so I don't know enough to answer either way. That said, if this is just one competition in which third- and fourth place were achieved by gymnasts who fell twice, I don't see how that could be a fair statement.

    Director whose adaptation of a Barbara Cartland novel you think would be most entertaining:

    Danny Boyle
    Catherine Breillat
    Peter Greenaway
    Albert Hughes and Allen Hughes
    Sally Potter
    Lars von Trier

    One of the B**kbuster authors then (Jackie Collins, Jilly Cooper, Shirley Conran)! Sorry, I'm no expert on Cartland

    Slumdog Millionaire, more because the friend I saw it with liked it than that I did.

    Jeremy Paxman: yay or nay?

    Why do you think the choice of sex and love over money exists only in the realm of crappy writers? I don't get it. And I'm no expert on Cartland either, if that's what you're implying.

    Jennifer Jason Leigh had the fun role...

    The Fugitive (1993 film):

    a classic
    boring; at once overheated and half-baked
    a decent entertainment; no more, no less

    Great film - a classic, although the David Janssen TV series was even better

    On the balance of probabilities (51% - as opposed the criminal standard of beyond a reasonable doubt), did Sam Sheppard murder his wife - yes or no?
