Carol Ann Duffy - Poet Laureate NOOOOOOOOOO!

Please God, please it can't be true, please tell me that Carol Ann Duffy isn't the new poet laureate. It can't be true can it?

I fed Alphabetti Spaghetti

To Pete Doherty,

And he pooed better poetry

into the lavatory

A slicker motion than Andrew ever dreamed of

Okay, so my hopes weren't that high. I didn't mind previous laureate, Andrew Motion so much, but Simon Armitage as Millennium Poet was painful. His intonation grates and his voice saws up and down like he's trying to cut poetry out of diction that is just plain unpoetic. Anyway, there were plenty of amazingly talented female poets around to choose for laureate this time - personally I'd have gone for Grace Nichols. Grrrrr.

Leeds Dating

Find singles and meet the perfect partner in Leeds with online dating

If you are looking to find a partner in Leeds and surrounding areas and have tried the bar and club scene, or approaches such as speed dating, blind dates and so forth and it hasn't worked out then it might be time to check out some popular online dating sites. Every year thousands of people find love, ideal partners or just casual friends through online dating services.

Match online dating

Find love in Leeds

So, why not shop around online for the partner of your dreams, someone who shares interests with you, and who is looking to find someone just like yourself. With online dating sites you have the advantage of being able to screen likely candidates and select only those who interest you the most. With many sites you can introduce yourself with a simple wink, chat through instant messaging and email, and learn about prospective partners before arranging to meet them.

Online dating Leeds - setting up your profile

When setting up your profile on an online dating site, it is important to remember to be as thorough as you can in describing yourself, your interests and hobbies and what you are looking for in an ideal partner. You should also include recent pictures of yourself so that people can get an idea what you look like. The more information you include in your online dating profile, the more interest you are likely to attract and the more chance you stand of meeting someone. Also, if you are a man, make sure that you take the trouble to email girls that you like the look of - on many dating sites girls are bombarded by winks and other automated pokes, so they are much more likely to get in touch with you if you take the trouble to email them with something that shows that you have paid special attention to them.

Easy Flirt Online Dating

Online dating Leeds - searching your dating site

Once you have your dating profile completed its time to start searching the website - you should be able to search by region and also by the type of person you are looking for in some detail including hair and eye colour, marital status, whether or not they have children, ethnicity, hobbies and habits and much more. More often than not though, the online dating game all boils down to chemistry, and the person you find that turns out to be perfect for you, might not be the person you originally envisaged meeting.

You should also be aware of online dating scams. Even on the best dating sites out there you will find some bogus profiles, fake Russian brides and numerous other types of dodgy scammers. Remember that if someone looks too good to be true they probably are. This said, meeting people on online dating sites can be really fun, and you should enjoy getting to know the people on there, even the ones who aren't quite right for you.

So get out there and have some fun finding your perfect partner with an online dating service!

Lunch at Brown's Headrow Leeds

I always find lunch at Browns an interesting experience from a demographic perspective at least. This is a restaurant that tends to be primarily frequented by upper working class patrons with lower middle class aspirations who have put a little more thought into where's right to go than they have into the question 'where's good to eat?'. In fact, this is a set who haven't quite made it to the top of Douglas Adam's culinary scale of evolution summed up as:

How do we eat?

What shall we eat?

Where shall we have lunch?

Okay so on to the food. I would sum it up in one word - 'acceptable'. This is not somewhere you go for flair, high dining or top-quality food, but it is functional, adequate and has flavour and taste. The grilled chicken needs a little more thought maybe. The current offering is a little too dry, which is exactly what happens to chicken when you grill it and top it with bacon and cheese - maybe some lemon would do the trick, or a little ali oli or even just a squirt of olive oil - make it juicy as well guys.

The service is worth a mention since the dining staff are helpful and friendly and noticeably made an effort to make sure we had a good experience. So they get my thanks. Let's put some pizazz in that menu though in order to take it to the next level.
