no favourites, just obsessions

No flickr faves this week, I’m saving them up so I an do colour themed mosaics again. Instead, an illustrated guide to what has kept me entertained this week:

* Franz Ferdinand at the Glasgow Barrowlands. Absulutely amazing. I love it when bands play around with their music for gigs, although oddly it was mainly the new songs they had rearranged. Inidentally, Franz are the only band I have ever seen before they were famous that then went on to become stratospheric.

* Flowers. I would never buy them myself, but so nice to be given them!

* The Adam and Joe’s 6Music podcast. I look like a loon wandering about laughing to myself in the street.

    Stroopwafels! You can get them in Edinburgh? Where? Otherwise I have to bring them with me in August.
    The Dutch like to cover the coffee or tea cup with a large one and just let it go all soft and warm.

    hello, I didn’t realise you were in Edinburgh. I get my stroopwafels (?) in Tattie Shaws on Leith Walk, they have the big ones and the mini ones. But to be honest, I don’t think they are particularly rare. I think you can get them in all the big supermarkets and I’d be very surprised if Peckham’s didn’t stock them.

    I shall have to try that with putting it on top of the cup of tea to warm it up!

    I’m actually in the Netherlands, but at least once a year in Edinburgh. Next time in August, for the festivals 😉 How cliche, I know 😉
    Since Stroopwafels are absolutely common here and we love them (though the local freshly made shortbread is first choice) I’m glad I don’t have to bring them, but can get them. Leith Walk I know and I’m sure I saw Tattie Shaws – I will recognize it when I see it.
    I thought them to be more unique to the low lands of Holland.
