Surf & Turf

At The Boundary.

Last week I was very privileged to be asked to a dinner hosted by QSW in honour of Ambassador Stephanie Gilmour who was in London to shoot for a magazine. Stephanie surfs, plays guitars, likes rock music, has met Lemmy… is blonde, beautiful, talented… I could go on. Frankly she’s the type of girl who should make other girls ‘well jell’ to quote TOWIE or at the very least make them want to give up hope and throw themselves at the mercy of the nearest bottle of wine (or in my case someone else’s mini doughnut covered creme brule… yep, that was on the menu) but, in addition to all this she’s a real girl’s girl with the ability to make her fellow all-female diners feel like we’d known her for ever. That she’s only 22 and this grounded is, like the surf titles she has neatly tucked under her belt, no mean feat.

The next morning at my local coffee come surf store LCB fired up by talk of surfing I went to buy Cooler magazine only to find it sold out! How can they have sold out of a girl’s surf mag on Bethnal Green Road I whined? ‘It’s because it’s sunny’ explained LCB while frothing up my latte ‘we always sell out when the weather’s good…’

Note to self: buy Cooler when it’s well… COOLER, clue’s in the header.



Burning Up.

I first saw this…

On a pop program called The Tube (ask your parents) hosted by Paula Yates (who I very desperately wanted to be with her blond tuft of hair and billowing Antony Price doll dresses, skipping around the studio, flirting with pop stars) and Jools Holland before he got round and lost his neck: happens to the best of us let’s face it. And by that I mean the skipping and pop-star flirting bit.

Every Friday before heading to the Youth Club I’d watch episodes showing the first ever TV appearance of The Smiths, the launch of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, an entire documentary on Duran Duran and this young blonde writhing around on tarmac like a dislodged worm in hot sun. I’m betting my outfit for that particular Friday night in downtown Caterham consisted of all white and possibly a vest. And the dog’s neck was naked for a few weeks. Ditto Mum’s Hoover the bands of which made great rubber bracelets.

I can also bet that due to drinking nothing stronger than cola any writhing on tarmac wouldn’t have happened. That particular party-trick I’d save for years later.

Today I heard Britney’s version which is total Britney Spears or just plain BS compared to this.

Halo Teve…
