Brocked Up

Mark: At least I didn't have to watch her recoil at my scrotal scar.

Men: Brockley women are spoiled for choice in their domestic market, so you have to raise your game: wash your hair, get a better cardigan, or better still, no cardigan at all. And find out who Chris Morris is before you set off.

The Guardian features a date between a PR executive and Brockley politics student Emily Davies. It did not go well. Thanks to MB for the spot.

Oh dear it didn't go well at all, did it. "He went to Berlin, I went to Brockley". There's got to be a song in that...

Mind you did you see where the date was? http://www.shaka-zulu.com/ classy.

Oh I don't know - the spiced Sprinkbok loin sounds good. I would have thought rugby players were quite tough though! ;0D

Long slow marinading TM.

I'd like to join Emily's course in Brockley Politics.

Was the PR geezer from Brockley as well?

No he wasn't, making the above poster even more of a numpty than he would have been.

TM again said...

Only just noticed I spelt Springbok, Sprinkbok.

I humbly apologise.

What's the use of being 21 if you can't filter prospectve partners by whether or not they've heard of Chris Morris?

Anybody remember his mad Radio London show from the late 80's?

"Shaka Zulu has become one of the most sought-after venues in London, having hosted parties for both high-end corporate and the rich & famous. Shaka Zulu truly is a unique events space."

It sounds hideous and I WANT to go there and get hideously drunk.

I know we need hundreds of different small shops in Brockley to cater for every need, while only one restaurant will cater for every taste and mood, but we NEED a Shaka Zulu in Brockley.

Maybe we could have one next to it called Rourkes Drift.

What is Emily playing at, agreeing to a Blind Date in Camden Town? That's a nightmare to get home from.

From Camden Town? Northern Line to London Bridge, train to Brockley. Or Overground from Camden Road to Higbury & Islington, then Overground to Brockley. Easy!

Both gave funny responses but not knowing who Chris Morris is? That's like saying you don't know who Peter Cook is!

Well his name is not that familiar, though I daresay people have come across his work which clearly inspired by Peter Cook.

But he is not the same league - yet.

It is probably wise, when indulging in this peculiar dating game, to ensure it does not take place on your own neighbourhood for fear of conspicuous social embarrassment should it go terribly wrong.

The work they did together is just brilliant - Why Bother?

Not sure that the student would really like to be discussed on a local blog.

Brockley Nick said...

Erm, it's a national newspaper article?

I saw her sporting dark glasses and a scarf in costcutter yesterday; clearly didn't want to be recognised.

Mb said...

Dark glasses.....probably a hangover by the sound of it.
