i think its lame
And you have to get nightbuses home
most of them are shit, but it's alright.
apart from that, what John said.
wouldn't be fair to bash it unless i know if i've been there...
sitting in cosy cafes reading the guardian and be jolly nice to everyone, especially if they're a gay couple and listening to boring background music like morcheba or summit
like south london (should have said)
cos that isnt the stereotype of islington, north london, is it?
It's alright, innit. Yup.
Also - South London is ace. Fools.
I am so gay, and Morcheeba-loving. I need to book my ideas up. How dare I be SO DAMNED NICE!
is so like manchester its unreal! all the students move down here once they've been to all the hippie cafes up there
Spot on. Also, not generalistic at all. For example, Brixton and Bexley - well, they're basically the same aren't they? Same as Lewisham and...oooh Twickenham or something. Meh.
I start getting nervous.
Not really. I like exploring London. Going to Elephant and Castle was fun. I worked in Brixton for a while and that was fun too.
live there right!?
there was a sign outside a shop saying, "scrumptious cakes for sale" how lame is that?
"scrumptious cakes for sale" or "shit cakes for sale"?
scrumtious is a lame word.
"owning cakes" may have worked
"owning cakes" is better than scrumptious. What about "fucking scrumptious cakes" though?
That's got a bit of zing to it.
says scrumptious tho.
actually i bet they sold loads. it was in herne hill (one of the worst places ever)
I like the word scrumptious. it's funny.
stop moaning man. it's CAKES.
it's good. I've never been stabbed *touch wood*. and my nearest supermarket is a somerfield 'market fresh' which means they don't just sell 'VALUE BEAN'S!'.
My local pub is a Joseph Holt's pub and you can get two pints of nice bitter for Â£3.30.
move down to south london. somewher near brixton would be best.
you'd love it
do you like fourtet?
I like fourtet.
I am being mocked.
I also like Germlin. does that mean anything?
In't that North Manchester?
but I live in withington.
why would you leave bolton? it's near bury!
it was a bit too near bury.
but then you'd know that, being from RADCLIFFE!
And that massive pub - the Red Lion? :-D
the cool little cinema, if it is the one I'm thinking of, is well dead, sadly.
and I like it. It has trees and nice pubs. Where I am it does anyway.
is exactly what makes it SO LAME!
live near brockwell park
It's shite and there is a sad case called JEANETTE IRONSIDE walking around.
Kennington. And if liking nice things is wrong, then I don't want to be right.
is slightly ok cos its nearly north.
but still south
for gods sake! they're like, kent or something.
propa sawf landan = elephant etc. - all the shit places that people for some reason hold dear to their hearts and say are nice - when they're blatantly not and they're trying to make themselves feel better.
but some places nearby actually are (like near me).
I don't understand why the south gets such a bad reputation, bits of it are nicer than areas in the north.
which is boring
I'll move to a shithole immediately.
as the north, it's just fun to rip the shit out of it.
i lived there for long enough, i feel that i am allowed to.
Yer havin' a larrf, intcher?
I like living in South London. There are a few good venues down here, and only the very occasional knife fight.
then they move north. and realise how they were living in a rose tinted hippy world :)
It's a cool place, I guess. I live there so I like it cos its basically always been my home. And I have no problem with night buses etc.
is about myspace. are you sure?
battersea = hmm
brixton = ace
elephant & castle = god no. bulldoze it now
clapham = too trendy
camberwell = crazy place full of 24 hours shops. huzzah
fulham = seems alrite
putney = only ever been there by accident
wimbledon = ditto
the south bank/waterloo/embankment = huge fun (but expensive)
streatham = no
south kensington = museums!
lots of it is rubbish, but not all of it.
really been in Brixton, Clapham and New Cross and didn't really like any of them too much.
putney has a great name though.
i love saying it.
it's almost as good as 'penge'.
How cool is that?
North v South Peterborough? Gotta be the North, innit?
Werrington, Glinton, Bretton, Gunthorpe all WAY better than the Ortons. Yeah.
count as south london?
girls can't read maps.
this is a factoid.
you never NEED to go there, ever.
i've lived in kennington for about a year, and its quite clearly not exceedingly "nice". its much less "nice" than west hampstead, north london, where i used to live. the elephant and castle is much less "nice" than camden. all perfectly decent places.
also; what are your criteria for a place to be good?
much like the greenfields at glastonbury
But that's it.
i will live there forever.
except when i move to north london.
truly though, it's underrated. the music scene is sparser, but there are many compensations. cheaper food/drinks/life, lots of green space, the clapham picturehouse and brixton ritzy, greenwich, the 188 bus, the windmill, the tooting primark, the best pizza place in the known world, the whole of bermondsey, and the nice tropical climate.
i have to say i do miss my old rent cost down there...
is full of YUPPIES called Soooooosan.
PUTNEY is a shit hole where I NEVER EVER want to set foot again - it's full of up themselves twats, one who I used to work with.
Wanker - what the fuck does it have to do with you if the burgular alarm goes off?? Who are you?? You are FAR too high up the pecking order - well guess what fucker, I've left and now you can do that to your hearts, (if you have one), content.
