Nathan Barley is winning.
But yeah, jars are very in for cocktails at the moment. Even Wetherspoons are doing it. And the Princess Alice, which led to a fantastic conversation about what the bits in marmalade were called...
But only after I smashed a jam jar over ChintzyLacroix's head while meowington screamed "RIND! IT'S CALLED RIND!" for ten minutes.
It was a good discussion.
You will never let that one go. Even after Virago's iphone confirmation.
do fuck off.
bonne maman jam jars do make excellent tumblers. i've been reusing mine as glasses for years.
London = why the atom bomb was invented
half filled with some kind of black substance. I think it used to be marmalade but within the unique conditions of our kitchen it has been converted to bitumen. I thought they were belm inducingly disgusting but apparently we are at the height of fashion.
I wanna make that chocolate almond butter and maybe some lemon curd
i think i might need to taste this.
if I do and its good, I may send you a little jar of it.
I spilt mine all over me.
dont see anything wrong with it myself. i've drunk out of worse.
Stelios doing butcher-bars now?
As in the owner of EasyJet.
i thought it was a birds of the feather motif. maybe another tea is in order.
Two sugars and milk please.
what is it?
a restaurant in London. Great. Yeah, I'm well out of the loop.
I've never been. I'd like to though.
b) It's in London
c) It's called 'meateasy'
I'll stick to jam cocktails ta.
an 'Indie' version of GBK or Boudeans...with jam jars to make them seem quirky and cool.
although the waitresses swear over a tannoy. its fun tho.
The cocktail menu is written on the inside cover of JG Ballard's Cocaine Nights.
I'm not really sure I care either.
have you been??
Might try get some people together at the weekend. Shall I copy you in?
but going something serious on Friday night. HOWEVER I'm out and about with michael on wednesday night who i'm sure would be up for meateasy if you'd wanna go then?
I love how 'Thingy' is still in the anonymous stage.
but awww thingy <3
Ahead of the curve. The jammy curve.
Worst salesman ever
i read all these things about things in london which are quite frankly ridiculous, but i never see them. starting to suspect most are just made up to annoy people too coward to leave their hometown
That's why I'm staying up north with my family.
But are you scared of collecting bellends in jam jars?
perfect breakfast oj glass.
Well, if I had OJ for breakfast it would. Does a job for when I have a bit of milk though. I'd imagine it's multi-purpose.
It turns out salsa is a very tough smell to remove, and tends to taint most other flavours.
It's all about collecting those foil trays you get your curry in and filling them with jam.
My contacts in Dalston tell me that woodlice are very on trend.
and glued them to the wall so their flailing legs were like a moving sculpture. It signifies the constantly moving maelstrom of London, but in the end - only the artist goes anywhere over slavery.
i bet you're still listening to music as well? i just listen to the bits in between the tracks on albums.
1/ One time, not at band camp, in lieu of a proper glass, I rinsed out a coffee jar and used it to drink guinness from.
2/ Another nonsense 'trend' is pop-up shops. Aka vanity projects, totally non-viable kitchen sink businesses, or crappy marketing ruses. And the pop-up madness is spreading. I saw a mobile advert in the metro the other day for a pop-up sale. Pop-up sale, ffs. So stealthy. So underground. And restricted to just those in the know (or who have the misfortune to see your advert in a national newspaper, are following on twitter, or have clicked on like in facebook).
I did this YESTERDAY at WORK. So you can stick that in your pipe and smoke it if you think you can out hobo me.
Crossbow. Right between the eyes. And a wooden stake through her heart for good measure. Massive , massive cunt.
And it’s mentioned in a Hold Steady song as well. I assumed it was because reused/recycled jam jars being cheaper to buy than ‘propper glasses’, and not some sort of twee/cupcake culture thing.
This one night she drove down to the Hampton Terrace raceway
She was hanging out with kids down with the positive jam
Got so high we started drinking out of jam jars
Then she said she'd have kissed me were it not for the memories
Is it like that?
If anybody ever serves me anything in a jam jar, I'm moving to Zone 4.
Why oh why can't that something be cholera?
