I gave you my heart,
but the very next day,
you gave it away …
(actually, it’s when you closed up shop forever but anyway, it had the same effect)
…but on the plus side my cholesterol’s way down and that’s gotta be a good thing for the old ticker (even though it’s broken).

After months of development by a large and dedicated team of genetically modified marmosets Random Rosa is finally available as a pre-alpha (so pre-alpha in fact that it’s almost a post omega) release.
Please use with caution and seek advice from your general practitioner if you are of an obese disposition
[UPDATE - 14/12/2007 : In response to a request from one of the highly intelligent — yet devastatingly attractive to members of the opposite sex — readers of this esteemed organ for all things Rosa, we are pleased to present … http://apps.facebook.com/randomrosa/ ]

Eggs you might think are just eggs, but of course it’s not so, not all eggs are equal. There is a finely graduated hierarchy, a delicately nuanced pattern of differentiation which is manifest in the caste system that invisibly divides the scrambled from the fried or the poached from the coddled. With this in mind it was with no slight consideration that I placed my order for that king of meals, the weekly Fryday Rosas. As is often the case in life I little realised the consequence of my actions on causing the words "egg", "chips" and "beans" to be imprecisely incised in an impenetrably codified hand onto the small rectangular recycled paper ticket, no. 239.
Sitting by the window on a clear day the sun is fierce, even on an autumn day, a two rounds of tea day. Eggs, like buses and bad news share a popular numerical propensity. Double egg and chips is de rigueur for a Fryday lunch and buses whose frequent infrequency is gratefully resolved and greeted knowingly with the observation that you often don’t see one for ages and then……… Not that I could honestly say that "I’ve not seen one for ages" where eggs are concerned but when it comes to the appearance of the much prized double yolker well that’s another story altogether.

I was innocently downloading pictures off my humble camera-phone hoping to share with you images of the honest fare that continues to nourish body and soul, when this shot emerged before my almost incredulous eyes…
As true fans have always known the King is Alive and, with his cape of invisibility to protect him from the attention he has so shunned for the past 30 years, has been keeping a low profile at Rosa’s B&B…
You know it makes sense.

… and a cup of Tea
Cholesterol! the doom sayers rant on at us about but I ask them ‘have you ever tasted a Rosa’s Toast?’, laden as it is with delicious salt soaked butter and not the poor excuse for butter you get thrust at you by the “I can’t believe it’s not crap” brigade.
PROPER BUTTER on a PROPER PIECE OF TOAST!!!

At last, Leon got his finger out and allowed some democracy to prevail in this shrine to all things Rosa’s.
Anyway, this is to notify absent friends that we’re having a Rosa’s Friday … on Wednesday.
It’s not really an invite, just letting you know what you’ll be missing.

Where else can you find ‘quality’ like this??

The greatest (there are many) thing about Rosa’s is the endless combination of meal options. According to the University of Oxford, there are sum 3,365,879 unique meals at Rosa’s. It is our job/duty to sample ALL of them, and come up with our own. For this reason, this post is set up to record your favourites. Post a comment with your best meal combo’s!! Sorry no prizes for the best ones, but the winner does get a full belly!!
