It all began on New Year’s Day… in my thirty-second year of being single. Once again, I found myself on my own… and going to my mother’s annual turkey curry buffet. Every year, she tries to fix me up with some bushy-haired, middle-aged bore… and I feared this year would be no exception. Maybe this time mum had got it right. Maybe this was the mysterious Mr. Right I’d been waiting my whole life to meet. - Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)
Another year, a brand new diary. Once again I was summoned, kicking and screaming,to my mother’s turkey curry buffet,where I’ve had some of the most shaming experiences of my life. But this year, there was one crucial difference. - Bridget Jones - The Edge of Reason (2004)
Amara got up from her desk and grabbed her phone to call the pizza place. She decided to call the same one that her and Bridget always ordered from. “Hi! Can I have a large pepperoni pizza please?” she said into the phone. She put her phone away after ordering, and got her money out to get ready for when the pizza came. She sat down on her bed and waited for Bridget to come.
