Give It Away Give It Away Give It Away Now…

Spent Monday night at The Cafe De Paris…

Felt like old times but minus the clock stopped at the time a bomb hit it, Fat Tony’s DJing and my friend Robbie hot off the JPG catwalk in his black suit and new sunglasses missing a step and rolling head-first down the stairs styling it out by hitting the dance-floor running… OK hitting it falling.

I was there to help out at the latest fundraiser for HOPING and what a night it was: Jarvis Cocker ‘Moved Closer’ and walked from the stage onto a table to serenade the main bidder, Boy George dubbed it up with a new working of ‘Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?’ with a quick guest vocal from Kate Moss, Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr hosted, Jimmy Carr (no wonder Jeremy Clarkson was there… all those cars haha) told some jokes for a small fortune, Gemma Arterton got all leather trousered on us taking Maroon 5 up on their challenge and did indeed move like Jagger to ‘Sympathy For The Devil’, new boys Rizzle Kicks really did kick the night off and The Red Hot Chili Peppers rounded it all up with Flea asking people to ‘pony up some cash..’ which is a new one to me I have to say.

A huge amount of money was raised: hurrah!

And there was a huge amount of chat regarding Anthony K’s new look: is the tash for Movember? A Freddie Mercury tribute? What’s with the hair? And a split on whether the T Shirt really should now stay on….. perhaps we should have thrown him one of the ZOLTAR designed ones from the goodie bag?

Museum of DAF….

And after looking at trucks and cars and cars with wicker basket weave seating and brought clogs with DAF truck images printed on them where do you rest up? In the Daffetaria of course… and no I’m not joking. Telefunken.

Standing in Prince waiting for Mr Matthew Stone to catch us up, Mavi and I chatted in the street about our mutual friend Jack and how we missed him and how he should most certainly have been in New York with us. Mr S shouts across at Mavi and I fleetingly look at my feet (mainly to check out my new tiger stripe pimped Converse because well, we are on our Honeymoon period and it was drizzling) and right next to me on the tarmac is a sheet of A4 plain except for one word, the word JACK.

He was with us all the time! Spooky.

Bam bam bam…

SIBLING HQ was rocked by a very determined knock at the door and a back-up holler of ‘DELIVERY!’

He was right to be insistent as he was delivering a very very early Christmas present from the people at PENCIL: my G-Shock.

Of course it went straight on, and because after years of being presented with dainty watches and then handed a MASSIVE Snoopy playing tennis one I have this ‘thing’ for huge watches. It’s like me and men’s noses: the bigger the better Mr Freud…. anyway so now my entire wrist is covered by 2 watch faces.

Although my Panerai is from the Italian Navy does it light up? Does it tell you what pesky phase the moon is today or what the tide is playing at? It’s Italian so no, it just looks classic and handsome and does what a watch does: tells the time. And probably gives a little shrug while doing so.

My new G-Shock Module 3194 does loads and so comes with an instruction booklet the size of a Gideon Bible. Thankfully the English instructions only (only?) take up the first 70 plus pages…. or 24 mins via this video from a man with way too much time on his hands – yes this from a girl wearing 2 watches.

 

Where Am I?
