Re: Stupid question of the day

I've been invited to an X-mas party (big party, cool people, symmetric distribution of age from 30 to 65). Will it be a faux pas and an affront to my partner if I go in this dress? (It's from some cheap online shop which pops up in google when you search "X-mas party dress+cats" :-D) https://gloimg....

Re: What was big is small

I think there is possibly some forum "territory", where Paul keeps Traden4Alpha, outrun, frollos, possibly trackstar and Collector, and some other beasts. Maybe Gamal would feel better if he could switch between us and them?

Re: Need Help: Vegetarian Recipes

Spanish paella is vegan. It's my "zero-waste" dish: I make it when I have to use up some veggies. The only spices and herbs it requires are salt, pepper and rosemary (not to much).

Gamal, I don't know where you're based, but if you happen to be in London on 26 November, I have a free ticket to Ennio Morricone's concert in O2. Would you like to go with me?
