There's a new movie coming out and I really want to see it because I think the subject is one of the most interesting and committed Americans in decades, and a man under rated in popular culture. It's a bit of a spoddy affair called 'Jimmy Carter Man From Plains' and it's a 2 hour documentary on his role in the Middle East after leaving office when Ronnie came in.

Do I step out on my jack jones to see it quietly, enjoyably and uninterrupted (a bit sad doing the cinema on your own) or do I ask someone along who will think I have NO LIFE whatsoever!

I think I will go on my own.

Or I could just call Jimmy up himself, of course; he's quite a regular in The Rhubarb.

See that's just cool recalling JFK! That must be a very early memory of about 5 when he visited Dallas?

Hey I'd go on my own anyday (no toileting problems and no one to complain about being late for a start!!). See what you want in peace and not have to worry that someone else might not be enjoying the film. Go for it!
