Scott’s Cafe , New Row Covent Garden

When I find something I like I tend to stick with it, and lunch is something I have experimented a bit since starting work in Covent Garden two years ago and Scott’s is hands down  the best place to get a Jacket Potato in the idea.  For me a Jacket must be crispy and this only comes from being oven baked, most places microwave their spuds but not Scott’s these babies and big oven baked and lovely.  They come in quite possibly any filling you could wish for, I tend to go for the Baked Beans and cheese. 

There are only two downsides to Scott’s , firstly they are quite expensive and secondly because the food is so good it does tend to get busy which often means the takeaway line is out the door.

Still you will find me in that line most days come midday 🙂

The Delight that is camille o’sullivan

Recently I havent been one to try new things, sticking to what I know I like is all well and good but also get predictable and on track with my new effort to say yes to more things I said YES when Ben asked me to come along with him to see the Irish singer Camille o’Sullivan play in London.

Camille performs cover versions but in an inventive refreshing way, her stage persona is cheeky and fun and I was quite frankly shocked how much I enjoyed the show.  She obviously has a passion for Jacques Brel and sang several amazing versions of his tunes, I shall be going back for a second helping for sure!

Camille’s show The Dark Angel plays from December 07 until mid January

The Rules of Attraction

The world of dating is a complicated business for a lot of us blokes, we just don’t really get what we are meant to do and how we are meant to go about doing it!

For example recently I went on a date with a lovely American woman in her early thirties , the date went very well I thought but then came the dilemma of how long to leave it before I write the email saying “I had a good time can we do this again?”  maybe stupidly whenever this happens all I can think of is that scene in Swingers where the guys debate about how long to leave it before you call the girl ….

Here are the Swingers rules:

Mike: So how long do I wait to call?
Trent: A day.
Mike: Tomorrow.
Sue: Tomorrow, then a day.
Trent: Yeah.
Mike: So two days?
Trent: Yeah, I guess you could call it that, two days.
Sue: Definitely, two days is like industry standard.
Trent: You know I used to wait two days to call anybody, but now it’s like everyone in town waits two days. So I think three days is kind of money. What do you think?
Sue: Yeah, but two’s enough not to look anxious.
Trent: But I think three days is kind of money. You know because you…
Mike: Yeah, but you know what, maybe I’ll wait three weeks. How’s that? And tell her I was cleaning out my wallet and I just happened to run into her number.
Charles: Then ask her where you met her.
Mike: Yeah, I’ll ask her where I met her. I don’t remember. What does she look like? And then I’ll asked if we fucked. Is that…would that be…T, would that be the money?
Trent: You know what. Ha ha ha Mike, laugh all you want but if you call too soon you might scare off a nice baby who’s ready to party.
Mike: Well how long are you guys gonna wait to call your babies?
Trent, Sue: Six days.

I dont really like to play games, and figured Id send an email the next day and if she likes me thats great and we can do this again if she doesnt at least we both know the score right?.  who knows Im still learning thats for sure.
