Has anyone ever brought a packed lunch with them to the cinema? I don't mean sneaking in your own shop bought popcorn, but a full on packed lunch.

That's exactly what I did when I went to the cinema this afternoon. Made a ham and cheese sandwich (with sliced cucumber in it for added crunch and moisture, you feel me), brought an apple, some grapes and nuts, and I munched on it while watching a film.

I've never felt less urban in my life.

Does anyone on here have a upvc door, are there additional security measures I could put in place to make me feel safer, the door doesn't lock automatically once shut I have to use key.

^ I have upcv doors, which do need to be locked with a key but have five-lever mortice locks; they're much more secure than the old-fashioned Yale-type locks, which lock automatically but can be opened with a good kick. There's also the advantage that you can't lock yourself out accidentally.

We had one of those doors with a Yale lock that automatically locked if you left it off the latch. When I was probably 19, my parents went on holiday and I stayed home to look after the dog so she didn't have to go to the kennels. I took her out for a walk one evening and accidentally locked myself out of the house

I had to knock on someone's door asking if I could sleep over (with my boxer dog!). Thankfully, they said yes! Then the next day my sister's boyfriend at the time drove back from uni to give me her house key!

I'd locked the cat in the house too! She left a little...surprise... in a handbag.

Has anyone used Glasses Direct, and would you recommend them? £9 for a pair of prescription glasses seems too good to be true (albeit that's their very cheapest pair).

I think it can be about hiding from yourself, avoiding pain, self medicating, seeking stimulation. Many different things really.

^ I think we need a handy flow chart to help determine if we are at a party. There's no other way of being sure.

My sister uses a similar website for glasses and they're really nice glasses.

I've asked her which site she uses and will report back when she tells me.

What are those things called that's like a kazoo with a rolled up tube at the end, that unrolls when you blow into them? All this talk of parties has left me wondering.

My glasses came from glasses direct. I've used the site for probably a decade. This current pair is maybe five years old, though I don't wear them for daily use (contacts during the day, glasses in the evening). I can't really comment on the quality of higher priced or higher spec glasses, as I'm fine with just a basic pair and I just have basic short sightedness. Mine were £25. I've got no complaints. They do their job, and I'm not trying to compete in the "best glasses in town" competition, etc.

Glasses direct used to offer a "try five frames at home" option, Idk if that's still the case.

^ they've lowered it from five to four - they've become less trusting in their old age, it would seem

I've heard back from my sister and they send you up to four frames to try on at home. Then you can post them back for free. You can choose a different four to try if you didn't like those ones. She recommends them. Her glasses look really nice on her.

I've had a couple of pairs of glasses from Glasses Direct. The try on at home thing is super convenient and their own brand stuff is decent quality and really reasonably priced. The current pair I wear are from there, were about £30 all in and look just as good as any more expensive (rip off) ones of the same style. Would definitely recommend.
