My favourite part of Step Brothers. Actually the movie sucked so it’s one of the only good bits. I love the way the kid hits the ‘smarminess’ so perfectly ha ha.

The wench night – the medieval banquet – a feast fit for… tourists

March 24, 2009 at 2:47 pm (Uncategorized)

Saturday night Tim and I went to celebrate Sean's birthday with a medieval banquet in the heart of London. It was in the very hip St Katherine's Dock which added to the atmosphere somewhat. We had a real giggle. You eat at long tables - really basic food like 'broth' and big hunks of chicken. The soup you drink straight from the bowl and the beer and wine (free all night, oh so dangerous) comes in mugs with handles. The entertainment was fairly amusing. Highlights included an (unintentionally) amusing sword fight and a girl folding herself up into a box so small I'd spent half the night claiming she'd never fit in it. Sean was pulled up to dance and dressed up like a wench and we all threw feminism out the window by referring to all the waitresses as 'wenches'. There was a lot of talk of wenches.

Red carpet antics

March 24, 2009 at 2:39 pm (Uncategorized)

Last night I was so happy to have my job as I got to go to another red carpet world premiere, this time for the Brit film The Boat That Rocked. It was such a hoot. They'd dressed up Leicester Square to resemble a big 60s party, complete with (very cold looking) go go dancers. As we were walking in I saw Billy Nighy (who I love) and Nick Frost (from Shaun of the Dead). It was very exciting. Apparently Paul McCartney was on the red carpet behind us but I never saw him - bummer! The movie was a lot of fun especially our very own Rhys Darby having quite a big part and making the audience love him.

Four days in Berlin

March 24, 2009 at 2:29 pm (Uncategorized)

First day in Berlin. Boys struggle to find out where we are. Girls don't help. Tim is sure he's right.

Post lunch stop off at Berlin mall. I'm overjoyed when I find a human-sized cuddly toy of Knut, Germany's most famous resident. Ex-resident.

The Brandenburg Gate. Officially now my favourite gate. I can't imagine living in a city with so much history. Just this very spot is loaded with history.

Tim follows the When In Rome rule with the first Bratwurst of the trip. They know their saussies those Germans.

Tourists pose at Checkpoint Charlie, the former gateway between East and West Berlin. You could get your passport stamped which was tempting but I didn't wanna risk losing my passport for a cheesy tourist endevour.

The gate at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, telling the prisoners that work will set them free. So sad.

There are very little references to Hitler in Berlin (outside of the museums at least) but there is a lot of graffiti so there you go.

Tim at the memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe. A really moving, incredibly large space full of different sized concrete blocks. Looks bland but has a totally different feel when you're there.

This is the window where Michael Jackson made history by dangling his baby above a crowd.

When you're walking through Berlin, it's almost impossible to imagine that only 20 years ago the city was split by a large wall and such a crazy regime. But then you come across this, the largest piece still standing and it's easier to imagine what it might have been like.

We couldn't figure out the appeal here. They walk this stupid looking along the tourist hot spots and when people give them money they remove their white masks. Seems like a lot of hassle and humiliation for... well I don't even know what really.

The pedal-your-own pub crawler

March 9, 2009 at 1:58 pm (Uncategorized)

pedalpubes3008_243x197

We were walking past Trafalgar Square at the weekend when we heard some screaming coming from the traffic. Not a horrific accident but a bunch of people on one of these pedal powered pub crawlers. It was so hilarious. Everyone was getting into the drink in the middle of all the traffic, pedaling away to get themselves to take off from the lights. So tempted t o give it a go, although doesn’t it just spell disaster – drunk people on an open moving bar in London traffic. Eek.

Kite up tree makes very happy British people

March 9, 2009 at 1:48 pm (Uncategorized)

kiteeatingtree

We went kite flying this weekend, an activity we do whenever there is a puff of wind since Tim’s a little loco about using his stunt kite. We went to beautiful St James Park where there are really amazing daffodils blooming at the moment. The sun was shining (for about an hour before a storm set in) and we were happily having a go with the kite. I managed to learn how to steer it for the first time (I’m a little unco).
Then Tim got it stuck up a tree which was too tall for easy climbing so we stood for a long time trying to weave it out as the strings got more and more caught up. But the most amazing thing was that we drew a crowd! Not only were the passersby chuckling openly at us, they were stopping and watching for a ridiculous amount of time. Now I realise a kite up a tree is kind of funny and I’d probably smile if I saw it myself –but these people just needed to get a life! One couple hung in for almost the whole show – 20 minutes or so and took a round of photos. It was so annoying! I wanted to tell them where to buy their own kite so they could have something to do with their Sunday afternoon that didn’t involve standing around and laughing at others.
And schadenfreude’s a German word!
Speaking of which – it’s only four days till we go to Berlin. So excited. Gunna check out Checkpoint Charlie and the Wall and have a great Saturday night out at the Killers concert. Epic!
