I missed his show last night in Brixton because I forgot to buy tickets / was too skint at the time (delete as appropriate, can't remember).

Anyway he's great. Soulful hip-hop is a crap description but as good as I can muster because I'm tired. Enjoy, if it's your kind of thing:

Geezer at my firm has been sacked
at 16:17 22 Nov 2016

For publicly espousing deplorable political, sexist, and xenophobic views.

Apparently a colleague had been listing times he'd said things in the office and was going to sit him down to discuss but then, at a client/vendor dinner, he said of a waitress, and I quote: "She's fit for a black girl". Straw that broke the camels back, obviously.

Anyway when he joined he introduced himself to me and I went for a beer with him on his first day, happy to be welcoming and try to get to know him. However in the pub, on that first meeting alone, two things stood out - his openly misogynist attitude towards brand new co-workers, and his willingness to wear his heart on his sleeve politically (Trump, Farage, etc.).

Question for TWTD: should I feel as bad as I do about not challenging him more than I did? I feel guilty that I all I said was, when he said something quite crass about a girl in the office, "ah come on mate, that's a bit much." I guess at the time I thought he was nervous about his first day and his misguided, masochistic bravado was his way of trying to fit in.

Have we discussed this? I can only assume yes and that I've missed the boat somehow. It is exceptional isn't it? And I mean that in the true sense of the word.

I will freely admit that some episodes I've turned off as they haven't clicked with me (the bike one and another which I can't recall now). But in general, I've been hooked.

BURGER REVIEW: Annie's Burger Shack, Nottingham
at 12:25 21 Nov 2016

Spent the weekend in the East Midlands visiting an old friend and on Saturday we went to Annie's Burger Shack.

They have over 30 burger choices and you can go for Chicken, Beef, Veggie or Vegan for all of them, which is a plus. I must admit I was concerned when I saw the menu. That's a lot of burgers. I needn't have worried. I went for The Delta, which is listed as follows: Melted American style cheese and Mississippi flavour burger sauce with onion rings, black olive and jalapenos. Very fresh ingredients - you could really taste the olives and jalapenos through the sauce (some burger places the toppings are average). The sauce was amazing and confirmed as homemade by the waitress (who was delightful and didn't seem to mind whatsoever that we had done an AfroMan impression that morning). The patty itself was thick and perfectly cooked to medium rare (my new choice instead of rare).

The coolest part though was that they put a serious onus on their drink selection (both beer and cocktails). Had a 'Festive Gingerbread' which was incredibly tasty and alcoholic, though I forget what was in it.

Overall Annie's gets a 4.5* rating, which matches my highest ever - a 4.5* for Rox Burger in Lewisham. Highly recommend.

but he's hilarious. He looked hungover to hell and didn't want to be there. When asked if Hilary was the continuity candidate and Trump was seen as 'real change', he said: "people might want change but not if it drags them over a cliff and into the abyss." Excellent.

Bonfire night
at 10:51 6 Nov 2016

I've always had a soft spot for Bonfire night purely because it's a celebration actually steeped in history, and I love history.

Wandered down to Blackheath for the fireworks last night and was pleasantly surprised by the jovial atmosphere - thousands of people, lots of families, lots of drinking and revelry but no bother whatsoever.

Is Christchurch still a bit lively? Estate fights etc?

NFL Week 10 (SkySports Fan Vote)
at 12:32 31 Oct 2016

For those of you interested, Sky are holding an open vote for which games to broadcast in week 10.

For those of you not interested, please vote for Washington Minnesota for the early game, which is, in my extremely biased view, likely to be a cracker.

I've revised my previous opinion of Newcastle (as a city)
at 19:24 24 Oct 2016

Loved every minute of my trip. Very friendly people at every turn and despite such a busy pub, bar and club scene, not a sniff of trouble. Extremely reasonably priced everywhere I thought and not just Newcy Brown available - was drinking Neck Oil in the restaurant on Friday night.

Let's hope they falter and we can all revisit next season.

Don't throw away receipts

A life lesson now learnt pour moi.

Smashed my whyPhone this morning so I nipped to Argos in a rush to buy a cheapo replacement handset. Paid, left, chucked the receipt, opened it up to find....



Luckily I quite like Despicable Me and I can pass it off as 'kitsch'. I'll be easy to spot in Newcastle.
