Small talk

Am off to a work lunch with some people I don't really know.
I hate small talk and always get lumbered with either
a) why are you vegetarian - which is a dull topic for me as I get asked this every time I go out or
b) the freak with an unusual hobby like cheese rind photography

Does anyone have good small talk topics that are safe and don't mention the weather?

I have not been to the cinema for a few years (i think the last film i saw was colin farell in the recruit)
I could try for CDs

One of the attendees is a horsey type which is an alien world to me.

One of the best things to talk about is what the other person likes. They will think you are a great conversationalist if you get them to witter on about themselves.

Can start with: Like what sort of holidays you enjoy the most? and then folow on with other questions from what information they give you.
