early evening I went out for a Chinese meal at the Peking Gardens with Miss Noodle.
I'm right off Chinese food at the moment and this didn't persuade me otherwise.
There were too many onions in everything for my liking and afterwards I was 'buzzing'.
Then we went on to 'Queer' on Canal Street and tried out the free Internet connection.
It's a good place for a coffee during the day or early evening. The prices are
steep (£2+ for a latte -- eek), but the staff seem friendly.
As for the customers... there was the usual bizarre mix of suspects. Pretend 'scallies'
in caps acting as if they come from Salford instead of Didsbury, guys with that
'I just woke up and slept on my hair' Beckham- mohichan-look and one bloke who
was wearing flip-flops and surfing Gaydar profiles.
Flip-flops on men are
just about the most unsexy thing imaginable and we wondered what would be the
reaction of the lucky guy he hooked up with!
On Thursday it was raining heavily all day. I met two friends who are moving up
from the south to live in Bolton. We had coffee at 'Queer' again (I arranged a
bank loan) and then all-you-can eat for £10 at Nawaab in Levenshulme. That
was as good as usual, but I feel about ready to explore some new restaurants.
I've got into
Big Brother in a 'big' way this year. It's the first time the series has captured
my attention since the original, five years ago. I signed up for the broadband
24/7 live stream which costs £4.95 per month and I've definitely had my
money's worth. In case you haven't heard, there was a fight in the house last
week and the Police were called.
My favourite moment so far was seeing Victor
in their clown and panto dame fancy dress outfits, with faces like
thunder when two housemates unexpectedly returned.
