COOL: Berber & Q, Sushi, Netil 360 Rooftop Bar

Comments Off on COOL: Berber & Q, Sushi, Netil 360 Rooftop Bar

YAUATCHA (W1F) It’s the new dim sum place in Broadgate Circus. Heart of Finance-ville and certainly feels it. Nice steamed Scallop Shui Mai but some dishes are a little on the Chinese Takeaway side. The best thing I can say about this place is there’s a cash machine outside, the staff are very sweet and desserts could give […]

Braces at 30 – and I’m still smiling

Comments Off on Braces at 30 – and I’m still smiling

Does the idea of braces as an adult fill you with horror? It certainly did me – until I embraced my inner Josh Saviano from The Wonder Years I was a goofy child and despite the 18 months I spent in a brace at the age of 14, looking the spit of Josh Saviano in […]

Comments Off on COOL: A plugin that lets you stalk your email contacts

I’m a big fan of validation. I’m one of those people who likes to know people have read my texts. When I found Sidekick – a plugin that allows you to track the precise moment people open your emails, I couldn’t resist. For a month now, I’ve been getting a little notification in the right […]

Comments Off on COOL: Easter’s good innit?

Now that we’ve all had a few days to adjust back to whatever  fresh hell we were drowning in before the world stood still for a bit last week, can we talk about Easter for a minute? I just spent 5 days in the English countryside with my future  in-laws celebrating the resurrection of our lord jesus christ, […]

Comments Off on COOL: First dates / UNCOOL: Michel Roux Jnr

Last week a friend introduced me to First Dates… Why I wasn’t watching it before is a mystery. I think I heard about it and assumed it was scripted!? If there’s one thing that makes my chin twitch it’s actors playing awkward, nervous people looking for love. That’s what reality TV’s there for guys! And […]

UNCOOL: SAGA (you kill me Saga)

Comments Off on UNCOOL: SAGA (you kill me Saga)

Eight episodes in, 20 murders still unsolved, and I couldn’t give a septic toss  who done it… I’m far more interested in Saga. These days, most nights, I’m pulling my hair out  shouting at the telly: “SAGA. WHAT IN DESIGNER DANISH FURNITURE’S FANNY IS WRONG WITH YOU?????????” She’s the most interesting, sociopathic female detective on […]

UNCOOL: Dappy

January 14, 2014

Why has Dappy’s violent sexist behaviour towards Luisa Zissman been brushed under the carpet? … and who with a milimeter of sense calls their kid Dappy anyway? Why not – SEXisty? Or – Stoopidy?  Or Crybaby?  Whoever the illusive naming genius is, you better be careful not to bring her up in conversation unless you […]
