I remember queueing up for Star Wars. Also Octopussy in Leicester Square. 

I watched Star Wars in the USAF  cinema of Wright Patterson Air force Base in Dayton Ohio, the year before it was released in the UK. I had deadful jet lag, as a 10 year old. attending my Sisters wedding to a Captain in The US Army.  We stayed in a motel on the base, because his father was in the air force and got us subsidised accomodation. 

Also got to buy a skateboard on the way home in the biggest apartment store in Chicago.  I was the only kid in school with a skateboard.

That's actually quite reasonably priced by BP standards. You should see BP and Esso pump prices in my area at the moment - more like 120p+ per litre.

Funny how many filling stations have ramped up their prices to higher than pre-lockdown levels....

We would kill for fuel that cheap around here. It's usually floating at 114p all the way to 120p on some days.

it's a penny cheaper again at the asda half a mile down the road, where I filled up on dizzel at 1.127/l earlier :)  

but we're poor northerners that spend all our money on pies and beer !

watching some "inside fast food" thing on Channel 4,cos Kerry likes that kinda thing.

they are in China doing something about noodles.

trying instant noodles  from this country with proper chinese ones.

they don't like them from the UK! and lest face it the chinese will eat any damn thing, assuming they can get it in a wok!

so Red Dwarf were right, even when its down to a choice between dog food and a pot noodle, the dog food gets eaten first!

114.9p/l in BP but 108.7p/l in Morrisons down here.

Everything is so much more expensive down South... ?? 

I think BP users are often fuel card holders. Also BP probably do Super where as Morrisons don't.

Seems about right with the BP fuel card and super- I bunged £15 worth of Morrisons' liquid dinosaur into the car earlier after looking at the price, funnily enough!

I had to stop last weekend travelling south to north to top up the tanks on the autobahn muncher and paid 1.27 a litre!!!! Admittedly motorway prices but had no choice due to the consumption rate of the old girl.....

I was getting an MOT done yesterday and while waiting a lycra clad yummy mummy came in all tits and arse hanging out, flapping as the low oil light had come on on her 19 plate SUV and she had a low tyre, the lads were falling over each other to help and happily added a litre or two of expensive Shell Helix snazzy bollocks oil and sorted her tyre," no charge love", "anytime love"  

Fuck all discount for me like :) 

 

Dress like her next time !
