Today we are:

  • Saddened: CCTV images have been released of an unidentified woman in London who was later found dead in a Hertfordshire lake.
  • Amused – by Harrow Council: they are seeking to reduce 'councillese' and replace it with plain speaking. Perplexed over the delay of a new system of regulation for roadworks. Impressed by one former city-worker’s efforts to help his peers: he has set up a charity, Stand to Reason, to help those with work related mental issues. Unmoved by Pizza Hut’s image change. Pasta Hut? Past-a joke. The food is just too stodgy and salty for this Londonista. Thrilled by the reopening of Shepherds Bush Station. Well, we were pleased at any rate.

    Also thrilled about the She Bu opening.

    The Pizza-Pasta Hut transition was attempted to, as far as I can tell, minimal success in the States about a year ago. I guess they think they can manage it here but given the fact that they're trying to portray themselves as a classy pasta restaurant, I think they're going to have a bit of trouble competing with, oh, you know, REAL Italian food.
