Weekly Trivia #17

I. Need. Sleep.

I can’t believe it’s already been a week since I was in Cornwall already! Time flies when you’re…slaving away at your desk.

It hasn’t all been hard work though. Cornwall was an amazing chance to relax and recharge both physically and mentally and my god did I need it. You can read about my first day in Cornwall here, and the rest will be up on Sunday. Exciting!

Not that my recharge lasted very long. As soon as I got back into work on Morning, I was told I needed to be in Brighton for 9am today for an all day conference (which is where I am right now, FYI) and then a lot of catching up on emails to go with it.

For some more relaxation, I went round Joe’s on Tuesday night for a chill out and PS4 night. Loading up Final Fantasy XV (yes, I’m still obsessed with this game), I played a tiny new section that’s just been added on. And in that section was a Donald Trump joke. Yep. Square Enix went there. Fake news was referenced and it made my day. I’m honestly far too emotionally invested in this game.

So after that late night came another one. With a half day on Wednesday, I jumped on the train and headed into Camden Market with Connor, as you may have seen on my Instagram. For all the food. And to see Mallory Knox. But the FOOD. Our main ambition of the day was to go to the Cheese Bar because who wouldn’t want to go to a restaurant themed around cheese? I mean really? But, as soon as we got there, it closed for lunch service and wasn’t reopening until 5, which means, exploration. Somehow, Connor had never been to Camden before, so everything was new and interesting to him. And slightly scary. That’s right, I took him to Cyberdog. For anyone that doesn’t know what Cyberdog is, it’s a completely mental futuristic shop with electronic music, dancers and an…adult section. Even I was slightly traumatised by some stuff we found down there, but some of it is so scary that it actually becomes completely hilarious. What better way to traumatise your best friend?

Emerging back to ground level, we wander around the food market again, which is our downfall. Walking around, we spot a stall that said Halloumi fries. Halloumi. Fries. With pomegranate, chilli, garlic and all sorts of delicious goodness. Just LOOK AT THEM.

But that was our first mistake. Because after a quick stop in the local Spoons, the Cheese Bar had re-opened and it was time for some more cheese. What an error. Because while it might not look like much cheese. It is.

Cheese fondue with smoked sausage, loaded chips with salt beef, melted cheese, onion rings and bacon gravy, and cheese tortillas later, we’re dead. Well, I gave up halfway. Connor was dead. I killed him with cheese. Murder by dairy. And straight after this ridiculous meal, we had to walk to the other side of Camden to tonight’s venue. And holy shit London KOKO is incredible. It was the first time I’ve been there and it’s my new favourite venue ever. It’s just so glamorous and sparkly and it has a rooftop terrace. I don’t even smoke but I loved it.

Mallory Knox were one of the best bands I’ve seen in probably about six months, I LOVED it. Supported by Fatherson and Lonely the Brave, the whole night was fantastic. I now really really fancy Mikey Chapman, the very lovely singer. And has grandad was in the crowd and I loved him. I loved everyone. I loved it so much that as soon as I got on the train, the excitement got too much and I fell asleep. Fabulous.

After another late night, I had the chance for an early night before my 5am Brighton alarm went off, but no. I wrote this blog post instead. Sleep when you’re dead lads.

    Sounds like you’ve had a wonderful week and oh I do love a good afternoon in Camden! I haven’t been for a while though.

    I love Mallory Knox, they always seem to have a great atmosphere at their gigs. I seen them in a local venue a few years ago, and it’s always been one of my most memorable gigs.
