Ten Questions For the Volcano

 

Photo of the day: Looking for ash, but this is what most London nights looks like.

Iceland’s volcano is causing a mess in the aerospace industry and the one source the media isn’t talking to is the volcano! Here are my questions for the volcano.

Ten Questions For Eyjafjallajökull:

  1. Why are you mad?
  2. When will you stop spewing?
  3. Can you make your ash disappear? Will you? Now? Please.
  4. Is this the end?
  5. What can I do to help you?
  6. Do you have any accomplices?
  7. Do you compromise?
  8. Will you be reimbursing loses?
  9. Will you be doing this again?
  10. Do you understand what kind of trouble you’re in?

 

Saturday's view from Parliament Hill over London. If you looked up you would seen a beautiful sky like...

 

...this. The sky remained a brilliant deep blue the entire weekend, despite the volcanic ash cloud.

Photo of the Day – Vapiano

March 26, 2010

Fresh basil growing in front of you. Have a piece.

Last night I checked out Vapiano, an Italian style restaurant with a cool modern twist. The buddies I went with love this spot off Oxford Street (Great Portland Street Actually).

Vapiano’s system is wicked trendy. When you walk in, you are handed a card – much like a debit card, which keeps your tab until you pay before you leave. You order your food in designated areas, like a cafeteria, and watch them cook it in front of you while you are waiting. Vapiano definitely takes pride in their fresh food attitude.

The menu ranges from fancy drinks, to personal pizzas, to antipasti, pasta dishes, and cute desserts.

Make sure to grab your seating first though as you wouldn’t want to be carrying plates of food around with no where to sit – this place fills up fast with the hip and trendy crowds. It’s definitely a place where locals meet their friends and tourists enjoy their time alike. 

Trendy vibe, cool people, and even cooler food.

My shrimp scampi made in a jiffy. Grade B+/A-. I'm a tough critic.

Photo of the Day – Dinner At Murray’s

March 25, 2010

Okay, so this is from yesterday actually. Last night, I had dinner with some cool people at Murray‘s flat. (This is like free press for you, man.)

I forgot to take a picture while we were eating, so here is the left overs and dessert. That's right, I made the cookies.

Photo of the Day – London’s Space For Food

March 23, 2010

Space is hard to come by in London. Imagine six people living in one fair sized flat. They – I mean, we – have one large fridge and one small fridge. That’s not enough for our cold store foods or the supply of fine wine. But we do have plenty of cabinet space.

The two bottom drawers are mine. One milk, a jam, and tomatoes to the left.

Mostly raw ingredients. Four kinds of tea. I can easily cook something up, or bake you some cookies.

S.P. Sullivan, my significant other was in town so he didn’t really need to see my photos of the day since he was with me this week. But here they are.

Safe to say, the Museum of London was enjoyed by Sean.

Not to be emo, but Sean was the only good thing about my day.
