Pomegranites is a lovely restauarant based in London. It is owned by Patrick and produces 'eclectic food' such as goat curry -- a delicacy of the Jamaican chef who managed to get a job there.
Sarah told us a wonderful story about Patrick, who knew Perry Mason ('a big man'). One day, Perry told Patrick he was going to take him out to the best restaurant in the south of England. Excitedly, Patrick got into Perry's Rolls Royce, and they drove off west, went round the block and turned up at... Pomegranites! After all, Perry said, Pomegranites was the best restaurant in the south!
After talking about Madonna taking her kit off, Sarah said she could never do it herself, and asked Lynn Bowles her opinion. She agreed with Sarah, and Sarah (observantly) added that if Lynn did it it might 'scare the horses'.
SK warned us that if you ever fly to Gibralter it's best to wear steel pants as the landing gives you the 'screaming ab-dabs'.
Sarah has 40 hot cross buns in her freezer. Adrian (aka Dearly Beloved) bought them last year on a buy-one-get-one-free spree.
SK once lived in Petersfield, Hampshire.
The unprofessional Lynn Bowles How much longer can Sarah cope with Lynn Bowles, the ex-columnist of a Kuwaiti weekly women's magazine-cum-travel reporter? Sarah struggles to strike up a meaningful conversation every morning with this spiteful lady who once caused an M25 traffic jam whilst doing a broadcast.
Regular listeners may remember how well Sarah got on with Lynn's understudy, 'Steve', and how much more relaxed Sarah sounded whilst in his presence. Surely it must be 'Steve's' time to take over from the stricken Lynn, who was carelessly nearly drowned in a submerged helicopter when at Radio Five.
Lynn Bowles - can't wait Lynn Bowles continued to annoy Sarah today by constantly berating her throughout the show. The reason behind these petty outbursts? The fact that poor Sarah was manfully trying to squeeze as much as she could into the show and hence was a little late passing over to Lynn's 'important' traffic update.
Girl on film! By undoubtedly using her many social contacts, Sarah has worked her way into a new film, 'Summer Rain', to be released next year. It is director Jonathan Glendening's first feature film and Sarah is rumoured be playing herself, the early morning dame of radio.
A romantic comedy drama, 'Summer Rain' tells the story of three girls living together in Brighton - Britain's sexy and funky coastal capital. Tangled relationships; one night stands; frustrated ambitions; love and friendship are at the heart of this modern coming-of-age story.
Sarah is away this week However, latest figures show that her audience figures are still extremely healthy, helping boost the flagging Terry Wogan. This is taken from uk.media.radio.bbc-r2. (Thanks to Mike)
