|The Fat Duck restaurant
I say, for anyone who has been there or is familiar with it... you know it's the crazy gastro science place, is Bray, Berkshire considered countryside? I have an article here that describes it and I need to know if it's considered countryside... thanks!

|Avenue Q (review)
Saw Avenue Q last night. It's the funniest thing I've seen all year! Basically, it's about middle-class, college-grad down-and outs-living in Brooklyn. Avenue Q is shared by humans, monsters and puppets. Through the song score they address 21st century everyday niggles.
Songs include stuff like "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist", "The Internet Is For Porn " and "I Wish I Could Go Back to College". They illustrate the characters' anxieties while they have you in stitches. If you liked Jerry Springer the Musical, you'll like this. It's less complicated than Jerry Springer so it's easier to laugh at. It really is like Sesame Street gone bad. The cast got a standing ovation last night and I can happily say they deserved it.
So, I recommend this for the summer!

|First chav, now this!
Last year on my LJ I asked what "chav" meant as I'd never heard the term before, let alone imagined the excitement of Burberry.
I was introduced today to the term "metrosexual" after one of my male colleagues was talking about how there was no way he was into grooming products - "just a bit of aftershave". I am familiar with the term "new man", which was a 90s buzz word for a guy that got in touch with his feelings. "Metrosexual" was apparently one of the buzz words of 2003.( I find the definitions interestingCollapse ) Current Mood: amused

Further to my post a while ago about buying a wireless router for my flat, I did. I bought a Belkin which I could connect to but then it would continually throw me off after 5 minutes connected to the Net. My flatmate and I called the helpline in India. They didn't really understand what we were saying so instead asked for my shipping address.
They have just sent me a brand new router. So, I have learned here that instead of addressing a problem, Belkin would just rather throw new hardware at it.
Ah well, I may have a spare router that needs a home soon. Current Mood: amused

|JB Priestley's The Linden Tree
The Linden Tree by JB Priestley, currently on in Richmond at the Orange Tree theatre, has received 5-star reviews from a couple of the dailies. I thought it looked good anyway. They have standing tickets left for £6, for most nights, until it closes on 25 March. I would be interested in seeing it from Mon-Thurs.
If you're interested in a trip to Richmond to see it, fill in the poll. I want to book a ticket, probably today.
Current Mood: cheerful
Do you want to go see The Linden Tree
If yes, is Thursday 23 March good for you?
Another date would be better

|Free to good home: Kingsize duvet
I have a new kingsize duvet that someone can have if they need a really heavy one - 13.5 tog. I didn't realise how heavy it was when I bought it and my house is way too hot for it and I don't have room to store it. If you want it, leave a note and come and get it.

|Public transport on NYE
Does anyone have a guess on how many tube trains/buses will be running on 31 December and 1 January? Do you reckon there will be none, very few, some or enough to get one around?
I want to have a good NYE and would rely on public transport if it's running, but don't know if I should rent a car instead (I don't drink) so that I'm not standing out in the freezing cold for hours on end. The car, in the end, would be the same rate as taking taxis. Current Mood: questioning

|Free items to good home!
Free to good home:
1 sparkly shower curtain never used and unopned - it has glitter in the curtain. Very kitsch.
2. Batter recharger - double A
3. A long handled stapler - good for stapling things like zines. Staples to go with it.
Leave a comment if you want any of these items.

I have taken a few names off this journal because I haven't communicated with you in a long time and as a result I don't read your journal very much anymore, vice versa or we don't reply to each other's very much. It's not that I don't like you - because I do or I wouldn't have put you on my journal in the first place
. So, don't take it personally. I still want to talk to you when/if we see each other! We just don't seem to do it in this medium.
