You know you are feeling a little hung over when

you wake up singing Shonen Knife’s “Tortoise Brand Pot Cleaner” in your best Mark E. Smith voice.

Went to a local pub The Elm Tree to see a friend for a few beers. It was, when I first lived on the Cowley Road, a wonderfully grotty pub. And then it was “updated”. A horrible job, designed to bring in a massive student clientel. Finally, this theory has failed, and it is sinking back into slight grottyness, with a good mainly rock soundtrack. Will definitely be going back there.
