The L Word

Went to Frankie and Benny's with Simon last night for a meal before we went to see Pride and Prejudice at the local multiplex. Pride and Prejudice is very good by the way, Brenda Blethyn was superb as Mrs Bennet, she played her as a more rounded person rather than the one tone marriage obsessed harpy she is too frequently portrayed as.

Normally Frankie and Benny's is packed to the rafters when I've been before I've have always ended up waiting in the bar area so I suggested that we went early. We were lucky and were shown to a table straight away but I had not been expecting this which meant after an ok but not brilliant meal* we had about an hour to kill. So to the bar we went to have another drink. Sitting down looking round I noticed that there were a lot of women in there, eating and at the bar. Some of that could be put down to "going to see a chick flick with my friends" thing but as Si said as he came back from the bar with our drinks it was fairly obvious that Wednesday night is "lesbian night"! at F&B. Which, of course is fab and groovy, just it increased the number of lesbian couples I'd seen in my not particularly fab and groovy or hip corner of Cambridgeshire from nil to 5.

*Please note that we only went there because the other choices were KFC and MacDonalds

  2. Did you get your Gangster Mouse colouring kit, or is that just given to kids, or do they even still do that? I have been known to go to McDonalds/Burger King if the kidmeal prize is right (Starwars related or some other crap) =)

  5. Matthew, Em in my book and Keira is far far better as Elizabeth.

  7. "Mmm Keira" indeed. As I'm old enough to be her father I guess that makes me a dirty old man!

  8. My favourite is Colin but that's because, occasionally, drunken people, after a lot of pleading prompting from me, have suggested I look a bit like Mr Firth. So I feel like I OWN him now.
