No one mention the spring

L has a viral infection rendering her unable to blog this weekend. I know she wanted to so I am sneaking on to lend a hand
With the help of a cool scheme with Evans Cycles, L brought a push bike last weekend. She has yet to name it- but I am sure you will be the first to know it when she does.

Debbie and Heather

outside the Tate Modern, the Thames rushes by. Night falls early in January, and the lights of St Pauls and the gerkin twinkle in the cold air.
MT meets D and H for a quick visit.

I first met them in a movie theatre in Palmerston North that has since been knocked down. I went with my brothers to dirty dancing. I know! G<>A<>Y. who knows why we saw this, but going to the movies in those days was good fun. We had snifters and jaffas and played on the sit down video game before going in. Palmerston North seemed like a big town then. It was 1987.

Old Hobby New

Have started a bit of embroidery, which I haven't done for ages. This is my first one so far, it's on the bottom left hand side of an A frame Mary Tyler-Mooreish denim skirt.
The pattern is from Sublime Stitching. Now am doing a lady on a pillowcase. Whoo hoo.

Was supposed to go to Morrissey tonight but he has a sore throat. Prince never got a sore throat. So that was to be the highlight of the weekend, instead it was probably dinner at Shanghai in Kingsland Road - a Chinese restaurant in the area of East London known as Litte Hanoi, - which is housed in an old Art Deco Pie and Eel shop. Front of the restaurant is all tiled, has a row of booths, bar and big mirror, very grand. We were out the back which was all a bit 'Shanghai' feeling. MT very impressed with the Lazy Susan.
We had Dim Sum, my favourite was the crispy tofu, nice light batter with deliciously silky tofu, and the chicken lettuce wraps. Spicy chicken and beans that you pile into crispy fresh iceberg lettuce with plum sauce. Roll it all up and viola, chomp. Mmmm. Also worth a mention was the fresh greens with oyster sauce and the steaming prawn dumplings.

After dinner, which we had with D&B, we went to the Rio Cinema down the road. Nice, old school cinema, with stalls and a balcony. We sat upstairs, seats OK although not much leg room and the guy that was sat in front of us reeked. Poo. A lot better than a multiplex though. Saw No Country for Old Men which was great. Fantastic psycho lead character, Javier Bardem, with a truly exceptional haircut!

Anyhoo, that's enough. One last pic, here I am outside the Emirates on Saturday before Arsenal played Newcastle. MT won his bet - 3 - 0 to the Arsenal, Adebayor first goal - 20:1. Whoo hoo.

G Unit hits London

Wednesday, August 15, 2007

oh my god it worked!

OK, fantastic, putting this on has taken me a week. But anyway, this was- arguably the ebst gig of the year. An amazing guitarist, I felt it was one of those gigs that you take with you forever.
You got given the cd, which is an act of 2007 that hints at things to come follw. You werent allowed to take any images of it however, and this footage was taken off youtube after 10,000 hits.
