AMERICAN SPORTING LIFE

I hardly care about Aussie Rules, and only like Arsenal cause I live in that area. But I used to have an American husband [well I still do cause the chump still hasn't taken the papers in court... the most constipated procedure of my life!] and he taught me like a chant which teams were my favourite.

Baseball: St Louis Cardinals
Football: St Louis Rams
Ice Hockey: St Louis Blues
Basketball: He said I could have Utah Jazz

I don’t mind because even though St Louis sucked major cock when I went there, Chicago was a lot worse. So the decision made for me sat pretty easy. Also, all the uniforms for the different teams are pretty nice colours.

The only reason why I say this is cause today The Cardinal and I went to Le Péché Mignon for a croque and coffee – check out our desserts:


The chocolate and orange one was banging but the lemon one was a total KILLER.

After having a total maximum gossip we went to the second hand shop and I found a Los Angeles Rams collared shirt for £3. I was so pleased cause I have an LA Rams Starter jacket already and the colours are super nice. And cause the Rams are one of my teams, I feel a bit nostalgic for them. The Rams were in Los Angeles from 1946 to 1994 [concurrent with the LA Raiders before they went back to Oakland] and then they moved to St Louis. Yeah well, it is really NBD but I mega into it.

Check out the LA Rams Rap…

Thank God the Raiders had NWA…

The Miami Dolphins might be the winner?

MY CREW


Poodles!, originally uploaded by Tri_Poodle.

How we roll on the regular.

I’m going toot, toot, beep, beep, pulling up on them wheels now
All black on black body got it shining much like a seal now
Got them cars in my garage no less than a mill now
Kells about to take the bar and set it real high
Double take Double take when I roll up to the club
Playas they plays us when I walk up in the club
I got them shades on doing about 75
Just call it speed racer cause I’m rolling in that marc 5
Yall niggas aint fucking with me and I put a mill on it
Niggas and Bitches they lie but home boy them stacks don’t
R&B Boss hustling like Rick Ross
Man my flow is so raw niggas don’t piss me off
I’m a playa homie and that’s a well known factor
Plus the wheels on the coupe got lookin like a tractor
Take my ice hold it up
Then my city toss it up
Chi-town summer time Kells got traffic backed up

I’m totally HTML HML right now working on two websites. One has a problem with ONE image. The other problem is that there are more changes than necessary.

For a breather, I managed to get down the road to my favourite French place in North London for a Croque today. At Le Péché Mignon on Ronald’s Road N5 the garden conversion has taken place and it is super cute out there and a perfect place to eat and drink – if it wasn’t for the agonising conversation two ‘musicians’ were having at a nearby table. They were talking like OTT MySpace pages for themselves and organising gigs at places where a lot of industry people go ’cause they were more important’ and one was bitching out the other for having gigs of their own without the whole band. Blah blah. I shared a table with a very brainy looking bald man with freckles on his head who was doing the Guardian crossword in silence. And even though he smoked, I enjoyed his company a lot and I felt as if I was learning things about the world just by osmosis while I sat near him.

My Croque Monsieur was PERFECT and was served with Lamb’s lettuce and not the Brer Rabbit lettuce I hate to much. And I think you will agree it is more obvs I’m starting to enjoy using Mrs Kipling’s camera.

In BONUS ROUND news today, my 70’s German jug arrived in the mail today from Sabine! Too thrilled!! I realise it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but these heavy gross glazes I love so much and remind me a lot of my mother’s ceramic work from back when I was growing up. I remember being allowed to go and sit in with the big kids at the primary school at Challa Gardens when I was just in kinder while Mum gave extra classes in pottery to the kids and I felt so cool.

Not too unlike some of the ceramics I saw on the ward at the Royal Free Hospital, LOL. I love art rooms and cemeteries – they seem very homely to me cause of my mum.

Yeah – in lieu of posting anything for a while -and the last two posts were a bit heavy – here is one of my usual frivolous titty posts.

Yesterday I went to Harrods and went ’shopping’ which is my new hobby. This Dior bra is SO HOT! I LOVE it! Although the fitting rooms in the Lingerie Department there are ice cold [I have a heart as cold as ice I heard] and I wondered if it was to make everyone’s titties pert and the turn down the sweats, but then maybe the air con was just bunk.

I also went and had a very late lunch in Ladurée and earwigged on a middle aged woman take her parents out for lunch and guffawed to myself as they chattered away in French. I got to sit in the black room this time which was a first. I liked it in there. Possibly this was the best club sandwich I ever ate.

A visit to Ladurée of course is not complete without buying some macaroons – which I scoffed before going out to meet The Cardinal and the Air Commodore for drinking and fun at Cocadisco. Complexxion was DJing and I didn’t know anything about him before last night other than he has something to do with my friend Manuel’s label Citinite. I was pleased cause he played Destiny by Two Sisters, which is one of my super favourite 7″ records that I always forget about.


Complex Simplicity

After his set he got talking and – this doesn’t happen often XXCENSOREDXX. [I can't remember his exact words.] Anyway, Complexxion is JOKES. XXCENSOREDXX.

But back to matters of a more ladylike nature:

I went again to Le Péché Mignon the other day for a Croque and a coffee. The man in there remembered I wanted some chestnut paste but they had already sold out again since I had been in last. He went upstairs and got me some anyway and I am SOOOOO thankful. I also could not resist the Confiture pour Madame [rose hip jam.] The Cardinal and I keep talking about afternoon teas. I have been feeling so stink bad mood lately with bad dreams, grinding my teeth, angst and anger that a quick lunch at Le Péché Mignon was really all I needed to cheer me up. And even better news – they are opening the garden at the back of the place! I can’t wait! I wish I knew their names, I can’t keep saying ‘the man’ and ‘the woman’.

And being a total glutton, later that night The Cardinal and I went to Bodeans for dinner.


Check The Cardinal’s hand – she has hand cramps from knocking one out over the size of the ribs.

I got to tell The Cardinal my story about Guy Ritchie. One time I was in there eating dinner and Guy Ritchie and his minder came in. Ritchie surveyed the menu from his seat and called out to the kitchen staff “Is this place Kosher?”. Which is fucking hysterical given there is a giant neon pig in the window. Mega lolz all night about that.

PHALLIC

Today while I was washing dishes I was thinking about guys who after you have had sex with them at some point – usually at a super casual moment – ALWAYS ask how big their penis is in comparison to other guys. Well no – they don’t always ask, put this in the sentence: IF A GUY REALLY LIKES YOU, he will always ask you about his penis. If a guy has a big dick, he wants to know it is the biggest. If his dick is small, he wants to know how small. If his dick is neither big nor small he wants you to tell him it is bigger than normal. If his dick is bent, he hopes you don’t notice.

The reason why I was thinking about this though was because I had been talking about Bratwurst sausages earlier that day with Abbie and Lee and was cooking some that night for dinner.


I wish my German was better than my French. But I guess everything happens for a reason. [Yes I eat this kind of food as often as possible. I could never be a Jew. Well except for the fact that my mother is also not Jewish.]


Look at this hot pig trying to seduce you into eating products made from him! Sexual! This is the bag from the German Deli down and Borough Market.

And while I am being all M&S about food, I was in Le Péché Mignon the other day – they know me know cause they saw what I wrote about their prickly lettuce and make jokes with me about it! I actually felt a bit embarrassed. I know! Me! – for a croque monsieur [obvs] and while I was there I was looking for some crème de marrons but instead I found these confitures – Les Confitures Extra de Christine Ferber – Morrello cherry or Apricot ‘nougat’ with Almonds, Honey, Pine Nuts and Pistachio.

Like I died and went to Heaven.
