Flo is Number One! Her album Lungs has finally reached the top after many many weeks on the Chart, It came out in the Summer for goodness sake! She's chuffed. I love Lungs, it makes me feel fine that I'm a woodland creature at heart and would happily live in a tree house with the fairies if given the option. It truly is music for the senses and she whips you up, then sends you tumbling down with the sound of her bellowing vocals and all that drumming. A real rip-roarer if ever there was one.
Ode to the burger. I love burgers, they are my not-so-guilty pleasure. Soft, warm, luscious, full of different textures, an absolute party in my mouth. So when me and my flatmate decided (finally) to get a 'real persons' land line put in, there was nothing for it. It had to be the burger. So there you have it (as modelled by the lovely Rosa.) Serious conversations will not do on this though, so no-one is allowed to ring it with disasterous news.
I flippin' love the above place. The Commercial Tavern near Brick Lane. It's a real cave of wonder, with odd and flamboyant decor which looks like it could be the work of your Great Aunt on Acid. There's a Wild Boar's head mounted above the bar, a funny collection of plates in a clump stuck onto the wall, huuuuge beautiful windows and some rustic old cabinets. I went yesterday for wine and good conversation with Rosa, we looked out of the vast windows onto the street below and thought, these are the days.
