Just remembered being charged £13 for the house wine which turned out to be Leibfraumilch.
Same bottle was £2.99 at Singhs at the end of t'road.

I had a surge of pro-life sentiment and went and bought a humane box trap that supposedly tempts them into this perspex labrynth and keeps them there safe until the next morning, when you're supposed to take the said ensemble at least a kilometre away and set them free

It comes "pre-baited" with what looks like a smear of melted brown sugar. Doesn't look enough to tempt a mickey to wander through this frankly far too eleborate ste up - it even has a sorta weighted staircase they have to climb up.

I'm not optimistic.

I bet it's downstairs now as I type, pissing up the side of this humane box in disdain

I caught a mouse in a humane trap in the kitchen, took it out to the garden to release it (feeling dead clever with myself).
Didn't realise the dog had followed me out. Cue a dazed mouse getting shook to bits, had to put it out of its misery with a spade cause the dog only half killed it.

Kept finding droppings all over the house, even inside the toaster. Put me off toast for a while.

"The Ice Cream Man Cometh" was excellent, along with most of the other early stuff. I like dphoenix Nights as well.

It's like most comics, their first impact is impressive and then their material gets stretched and worn out.

It's the reason Norman Collier never over exposed himself on telly.

Featherstones, thats it! There and the chippy opposite - who needed Gordon Fucking Ramsey?. Should have renamed Harehills Road  - 'Heartattack and Dine' in those days. Couple of decent curry houses as well (now its all curry houses, whats left of the area sad ).

Warm were always better - with the jelly still gravy. As for better after three days...well if they lasted that long I'd let you know  - I feel a bit sick as I had 4 of the fuckers through the course of yesterday afternoon wink  - these obsessions have a price - and provided you don't put them in the fridge (they go soggy).

Chippy was the Galleon, it was like stepping into the 1930's. All done out in that yellow and black glass, walls, counter, ceiling and a hand painted galleon on the wall.
If that place had been in oakwood/roundhay it would have had a preservation order on it. Sadly its all gone now.

As for Harehills now, its all southern fried chicken take aways.

Bought half a dozen small 'uns. Not bad - warm and crispy. Still preferred the ones from the shop that used to be on Harehills Road (sadly departed) but will definitely go again. Thanks for the recommendation.

Lofthouses(I think).
Straight from t'oven, juices running down your sleeve.  Used to do nice Haslet too.

Might be Featherstones. Got small yorkshire towns mixed up.
