Daft as a phlog*

 

So, July was a good month for phlogs*

(*photographic blogs – that word hasn’t caught on as well as I’d hoped).

So, just a week after I was kindly sent photos for “gib-o-phlog“, another gig produced some cracking photos too. Thanks to Billy Amann  for the belting pictures.

What’s that? Why have I called this “Daft as a phlog?” Good question. The gig was for a charity called “Daft as a Brush”. They do great work for cancer patients. And they throw splendid fundraising dinners too.

I also like the name – likening oneself to a domestic utensil is pretty cool. <Insert attribute> as a <insert utensil>. It’s catchy.

I know what you’re thinking. “If you had to liken yourself to a domestic utensil Jack, what would it be?” Another good question. And one I’ve been giving a lot of thought too. A little too much thought.

Initially I thought, “Versatile as a spoon rest”. I then toyed with, “Useful as a sponge”. Then I settled on, “Astonishing as a whisk”. Then I realised how ridiculous the whole premise was and quickly ditched the whole utensil thing.

Anyway. I’m waffling. Sorry. On with the phlog. Enjoy the pictures. Thanks again Billy!

Ooh. Forgot to mention. The gig was at the Gulshan in Tynemouth. The food looked (and smelled) lush. And the staff were very well dressed. If you fancy being served delicious Indian food by the stylish, it’s worth a visit.
