Meme for 2015
It’s that time again: when I struggle to remember everything that’s happened through a post-Christmas haze of carbohydrates and vodka and whittle it all down to this niftily-structured end-of-year meme. I struggle to believe it’s been a year since my last one, particularly due to the worrying lack of posts on The Edible Editor this […]
Meme for 2014
I do enjoy me a lovely, weird year. This one’s been at times a peach, and at others a bastard, although generally I’m quite happy with it. At any rate, I figured it was worth giving it a good meme. They’re fun and cathartic to do, but please don’t feel obliged to read if you couldn’t give […]
Ten weird things cats do
My cat is really weird. He’s not ninja cat, sad cat or LOL cat, he’s just an utter weirdo. During the time I’ve been living with the ‘mad king’ that is Pepe Bandeira Harris Spencer (yes, he’s a posh Mexican bandit), I’ve observed a few ‘special’ cat character traits. Is it just Pepe? Or are […]
Weathering the storm: St Jude, mass hysteria and zombie apocalypses
The Great British obsession with the weather reached new heights today. Predicted to be the worst storm since the ill-fated Michael Fish forecast of ’87, we locked our windows and doors, battened down the hatches and settled down for a night and morning of mad howling winds and Armageddon skies with the storm dubbed ‘St […]
Opening Night at Glyndebourne Opera House
I always imagined that for my first ever night at the opera I would behave much like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman: crying so much as to almost pee my pants/liking it more than Pirates of Penzance.
The Beast from the East: Snow, I’m over you
I’m very much over this Siberian-style snow. This beast of a weather front has been shamelessly flouting its lily-white backside and leaving its excrement up and down the country for long enough now. And what’s more, people seem to be actively excited about it, picking it up, throwing it around and rolling around in it. No, this […]
Pajama Men: In The Middle of No One
As daft, nonsensical comedy goes, I’m not generally a fan. Sure, I enjoy Basil Fawlty’s führer walk as much as the next Brit-gold appreciator, but – don’t shoot me – I can give or take the kind of US humour found in Ferrell’s Anchorman. Which is why it startles me to admit that my latest […]
A not-so public service announcement
I’ve been massively absent on the old blogging front recently. Mainly because some bugger / robot hacked through some holes and decided to have a content-mushing party. All my link juice, likes, comments and SEO had effectively been wiped by these blog demons, leaving The Edible Editor looking more than a little worse for wear.
Meme for 2011
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: years come in waves. Some high, some low, and some extremely rocky waters. This year has been a high, for so many reasons that I’ve unfathomably decided to do what I don’t usually: bear a little more soul for others to see.
Love? It’s A Game of Two Halves
Almost a year ago to the day, I went speed dating at A Game of Two Halves in Bar Kick, Shoreditch, for no other reason than it sounded like a decent night out. With the night about to kick off again for a new season (too many football puns in that sentence), and still wearing the […]
