Maybe I can live without carbs... [Sep. 25th, 2008|12:06 am]
'the' scarlett perky goth
Okay, so my personal trainer has deemed me to be a carbs free zone (I'm allowed rice at the moment - woot) which made going out for dinner tonight kinda interesting but I purposely didn't say anything to the friend I was going to dinner with since I wanted to see how I'd cope.

A rubbish sit-com-esque, there being two WHSmiths in Liverpool Street, moment to begin the evening was swiftly followed by my delightful dining chum revealing that he'd in fact been in the house of two of my closest friends that very afternoon (Bedford *is* the centre of the universe*) we continued to Giraffe to explore the delights of baking gently under outside heaters in the cool evening air.

Much hilarious chatter and edamame beans, chicken and mango salad, and breaded prawns with the bread removed and the answer was apparently yes - I can at least try and avoid carbs even when having an entirely pleasant night out. I did have a beer though - but she didn't mention alcomohol -hah!

We then went for a further drink and much added hilarity - apparently I flush and get a look of pure rage on my face when he winds me up - joy.

A quality evening spent with quality people in a quality setting - and non rabbit food type -food and alcohol ...can't say fairer than that.

I has lost weight.(through the patented dawnkitten technique (TM) of eating less and doing more exercise)

I has re-joined the gym - body pump here I come.

Apparently 'Late of the Pier''s entreaty to 'Get your hands on the cheap wine' should be ignored by yours truly since I had a mild allergic reaction to some cheap(er) champage last night ....

Well- I survived a week of 8 'til 7 days herding doctors up in Sheffield.

Got to stay at the Mercure/St Pauls which is a pretty nice hotel in the centre and eat at some nice restaurants.

So last night - Lightspeed Champion, Operator Please and Ox Eagle Lion Man at Charlie Browns in Luton. Phoned to check door times - 8.30pm so mooched around - had a drink with a co-worker and met Rich at the station at 7.30pm.

Found the venue (literally 5 mins from the station - weirdly no distinguishing marks - but could hear sound check inside) Went and had a drink and some gorgeous Thai food at the Railway Tavern (delivered from the takeaway next door!) which was ace - tiny little pub too and the food was cheap and as lovely as any thai food I've had.

Went to queue up at 8.30pm and finally got in at 9pm!! Gawd I must be getting old - but I like it when a gig's at least partially over by 9pm! Anyways to the bands - Ox Eagle Lion Man - kinda melodramatic Nick Cave-y sounding - bought the vinyl single and got them to sign it. Operator Please - ace but the crowd were a bit shite and Amandah didn't look happy at all ... still good to hear the songs live though.
Lightspeed Champion - well- I'd really gone to see Operator Please - but stayed to watch and was glad I did - nice tunes. Got myself a t-shirt and some badges - altogether a nice evening - even if I did get home later than I would have done for a London gig !!

So Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip at Esquires last night - v. good, v good indeed.

Had a really nice vibe - songs sounded good (considering Esquires rubbish sytem), all in all a good evening.

Ha - just found a can of Impulse Chic body spray (yes - I'm a hoarder) - and it still smells the same ...man the smell brings back teenage memories.

There should totally be a retro scent revival.
