The title for this post is borrowed from a great single
from ‘Lack of Afro’ featuring Jack Tyson-Charles…..
“a little twist of woo and a pinch of ooh la la”
‘Youtube it’ ! ! ! ! !
Girls, watch the official video with the cool dude !

If music be the food of love then the G-man is besotted
Last night the No-2 G-ette and BF treated him to dinner
at La Polenteria in Soho
Italian-owned, Italian-run and better than a Sunday morning
‘bites’…..bite-sized polenta with toppings (try the mixed mushrooms
dressed with truffle oil)
‘mains’…..try the wild boar stewed in red wine, rosemary, thyme
and cinnamon on a slab of polenta
Please rearrange the following words into the correct order…..

It was doubly cool to have early Stevie Wonder on the sound system
Remember ‘Little Stevie’ ?
The delicious irony was that the waiter was a southern-Italian and
the most usual insult thrown at a northern-Italian by the southern
…..meaning simply ‘polenta-eater’…..
…..and polenta being traditionally peasant food, this was a way
of calling the sophisticated, well-to-do northerners ‘peasants’
In retaliation, the northern-Italians call their southern variant
…..which simply means ‘peasants’
Anyway, we did have 30 minutes to kill last night before the BF
was due to pitch up so the G-man suggested a swift half at a local
hostellerie across the road from La Polenteria
The G-ette chuckled…..
Think fast !
Think twice !
Realising that the G-ette would have been the only female in said
hostellerie and that ‘a rocket up the arse’ might mean something
completely different in this particular establishment we very wisely
dived into the comforting arms of La Polenteria for a glass at the
Buon apetito, cin cin e grazie mille
