Pockets of Greatness

Last couple of weeks have been… interesting. And while …interesting is not a fantastic way to describe past times, there have been some pockets of greatness. So I’m gonna tell you about them, and hopefully the …interesting-ness will end and we will be back to your regularly scheduled blogging.

  1. John Finnemore’s sketch try out.

John Finnemore, writer of Cabin Pressure and John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme, sometimes tries out sketches before he puts them into his radio show. And me and my girlfriend got tickets. Cue an hour of excellent comedy and a pocket of greatness was created.

  1. Fantastic food.

Arabica in Borough market has amazing food from The Levant (and if you like me don’t know what that means, here’s Wikipedia). I had Armenian-Style Lahmacun which was so delicious that I have no pictures of it, only fond memories. As well as fantastic food, Arabica has great drinks, it’s under railway arches (which I love) and the staff were so lovely.

  1. Gavin & Stacey

Yes, I’m about ten years too late to the party. But when it first came out I wasn’t so fussed by Gavin and Stacey. But I ran out of TV shows to watch on Netflix (suggestions in the comments, please) and so I ended up watching the British sitcom from the 00’s. And it’s great. Comedy focused around the little things. I now completely understand why everyone was talking about it when I was 15.

  1. Friends

Friends are great, as I’m sure most of you are aware. And in my life they’ve been super great recently. I’ve been a French evening to cheer up a homesick friend, I’ve met up with friends from school with plans to see them again soon, and I’ve reconnected with a friend from childhood after about a decade. Having friends and doing things with friends is highly recommended. 10/10. A++. Would do again.
