Interestingly multi purpose room available for hire at this Japanese restaurant in Ealing. There are some kind of parties where a having a lavatory as one of the main components of the room would be a definite advantage and there are some where that would ruin the whole event like a christening or a golden wedding anniversary. I’d be interested to know what kind of parties this places throws. Have you been?

…and so it begins…if it hadn’t begun already.
The great hipster backlash looks to be upon this particular corner of East London judging by this piece of graffiti. It seems that there are only so many fixed gear bike riding, vegan shoe blogging, ironic moustache wearing, lazy stereotype fulfilling people that can saturate an area before the locals start feeling marginalised and start painting walls themselves. But that’s assuming that this is the handiwork of a born and bred Dalstonite. There’s a high chance that this is in fact a piece of ironic self referential graffiti carried out by a secretly self loathing hipster….which would just be absolutely fucking typical wouldn’t it.

We’ve all woken up at some point in our life with a knob drawn on our head after a night on the sauce. In pre-internet days these kind of incidents usually stayed amongst a small group of friends but with the advent of social media increasingly peoples shame is broadcast for the whole world to see. It’s must be even more embarrassing if you are major Hollywood star and this happens to you. Here we have evidence of Kevin Spacey out on a drunken rampage around Seven Sisters Road where he not only has a classic “cock n’ balls” emblazoned across his forehead but also seems to make the admission that his balls are bigger than his “peeny.” The usually eloquent Mr Spacey also throws all the rules of grammar out of the window in his admission, another sign that he is hog whimperlingly swigfaced.

I love it when you see a newspaper headline so arresting that it slaps you about the face and takes you a few seconds to actually process what you’ve just read. This headline has it all, tragedy, obesity and sky diving, the holy triumvirate. It’s the kind of story that only comes along once in a journalists career. This manages to be both funny and deeply sad simultaneously. It’s such an improbable collection of words to see together on a headline board that it’s easy to forget that this represents something that happened to a real person in what was almost certainly quite an upsetting experience for somebody already under a cloud of grief. There are organs of mine that have just aged 5 years just by restraining my impulse to laugh at this but my conscience (that do gooding, butter-wouldn’t-melt swine) is telling me I shouldn’t, I’m worried enough about the state of my soul as it is.
Rarely have I felt so torn.

Hopefully this is just a typo but I’m sufficiently ill educated in the world of bridal wear to wonder whether this might actually be a thing. Going to the loo whilst wearing a wedding dress can’t be the easiest (I’ve watched enough Big Fat Gypsy Weddings to ascertain that) so I’m wondering if an enterprising dress designer has solved this problem by using the space available underneath the skirt to install some kind of elegant and discreet plumbing system for that special day.
Answers on a postcard please
