Fish Supper.

Took smahlady for a slap up sushi meal on Sunday night. She had no idea where we were going, so the fact that the first thing we saw when getting off the tube in darkest Ealing was a Harvester made my heart leap, and hers sink. "I booked you a table somewhere special darling".

The sushi place was top draw and it's reasuring when you are the only non-Japanese people in there. Always a good sign. Moving to the pub across the road afterwards made me proud to be British. The sudden shift from clean, fresh and polite, to drunken, smoky and foul mouthed brought a tear to my eye. And they say English culture is dead.

"Sodom and Gomorrah!"

For me though, the high point of the evening was coming back through Hammersmith at the exact moment the Pet Shop Boys concert ended and getting caught up in the tide of bummers flowing out the main doors. We could hardly move for shaved heads and tight t shirts, no cliche left out. Ooooooooooooooh I love you gay guys.

Plus I got checked out fairly blatantly on tube by a couple of handsome chaps, boosting my ego and amusing smahlady to boot. Almost makes me miss living in SE11.

Er Incorrect. This story is incredibly fishy for all the wrong reasons.

If you stepped of the tube in deepest darkest Ealing, I fail to see how you would see the RVT, which is in Vauxhall, quite some way away or Sheperds Bush for that matter.

Besides we all know Vauxhall is bereft of any culture, class or dignity and I doubt very much they even know what a Sushi bar is.

In fact I'm fairly certain 'raw fish' has an entirely different meaning down there.

Anyway smahman (if that is your name) as you are inevitably going to do. Correct me (people have tried and failed BTW).

The RVT was to illustrate bumming in general and point out how I miss SE11 where I did used to live near all of the gay bars. It was just a COINCIDENCE. I never went in the locker room.
