    Loving the sound of Feeling Gloomy’s Speed Hating. Am pretty sure that’s what I’m gonna do now.

    I’ll be here….

    Curzon Soho bar Monday 15th Feb from 7pm

    Embrace those anti-Valentines feelings and celebrate “Breaking Up” in the Curzon Bar with a host of distractions:

    DJ playing “he/she’s not good enough for me anyway” songs

    Rebound lounge (featuring a special staff counsellor responding to your problems).

    Competition for the best break up line with points for originality, harshness and empathy.

    Break up anecdotes wall. Add your own. Hollow laugh at others.

    Vodka cocktail “It’s Not You, It’s Me” available for you to drink and eventually rest your head on your forearm and think about the good times.

    Ice cream deals in the Kiosk for anyone saying the promotional phrase “Someone broke up with me”.

    Meet fellow break-up casualties. Hook up with the jilted. Forget all about the day before (anyone heard saying “Valentines Day” will be forced to take home an unwanted poster from our archives).

    I celebrated V-Day early as usual with a fantastic meal at Trinity in Clapham. Beat the crowds and loved every minute. Sunday is going to be more about chilling out at home and a relaxed walk in the park, rather than grand romantic gestures…

    Am doing the afore mentioned speed hating – but giggled mightily at speed plating, dating while power plating. workmate said if you get the vibration right you can get all your wiggly bits going in different directions simultaneously ;)
