A rare sortie

It is unusual for me to travel on a Thursday night. Usually, I like to stick close to home and be able to enjoy a glass of wine or two withing 'stoating' distance of my house. But sometimes the call of the wild - or, more precisely, a good meal - can be too great. It was thus last Thursday.

I was called to a friend's house to sample Chinese cuisine of the highest order. Won ton soup, followed by a wonderful beef dish, sweet and sour chicken, satay prawn skewers, Singapore noodles and probably a few other things I have forgotten. And all in good company. Where else could I hope to hear about people being attacked by a hippo in Botswana, discuss whether Rod Hull was murdered by emu AND listen to a tale or two about gay pornography.

A great night indeed.

Chinese grappa di rosa?

Never mind that. Gay pornography? What has happened to the Giovedi Club?

I didnt know there were any regular readers. There was no grappa to be found and I had my car so even if there had been I would have been unable to partake...

Spangly

Sadly none of that either.

Ginkers I want grappa and talk of football, baseball and the film careers of Maria Grazia Cucinotta, Olivia Magnani & Monica Bellucci.

Well it will be my birthday.
