Amy Winehouse spent 1st wedding anniversary with Pete Doherty

To me, nothing says romance quite like fish and chips. But I’m from the Pacific Northwest, and we have a different way of viewing the goodness of the ocean. I’m assuming that to the rest of the world, battered and fried cod doesn’t make hearts flutter. However Amy Winehouse seems to think fish and chips is pretty much the perfect meal to celebrate her first wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, it was takeout. For one. Eaten alone. I don’t need any other short sentences to prove my pathetic point here do I?

Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil celebrated one year of wedding bliss on Sunday. Though it’s really more like a six month anniversary… since Blake’s been in jail for over half the amount of time they’ve been married. I know, stop fanning yourselves at their romance.

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse marked her first wedding anniversary to Blake Fielder-Civil with a lonely fish and chip supper after visiting her husband in prison. The couple spent their anniversary apart on Sunday after Amy chose to join troubled rocker Pete Doherty at a charity football tournament in south east London.

After missing a prison visit on Friday due to the traffic, Amy abandoned her usual scruffy clothes and dressed up in a pencil skirt and v-neck black top as she dropped by Pentonville Prison for a belated anniversary meeting. Amy usually visits Blake in a pair of high-heels, but opted for her signature ballet bumps for the afternoon trip.

The troubled singer, 24, paid tribute to her husband by placing a cushioned heart with the name Blake splashed across it in her famous beehive. After marking their first year as husband and wife in the visiting room of Pentonville in north London, Amy left the prison beaming to photographers.

She stopped off at a local fish and chip for a greasy supper-for-one, which she sadly wasn’t able to share with her husband.

Nothing says love like fish grease. And from the last time I had fish and chips in London, the ratio of grease to fish was 3:2. Both the Daily Mail and People reported that Amy appeared to be in very good spirits, especially after returning from visiting Blake on Monday. He must have seen the YouTube video she made with Pete Doherty and some baby mice, asking him not to divorce her. Such a romantic gesture was bound to touch even the emptiest of hearts.

Who knew that would be so effective? I wish I could go back in time to my own parents’ divorce and have one of them talk to the other through baby rodents. I hope marriage counselors adopt this most successful tactic. Or just keep both parties on drugs, since I’m guessing that’s the real reason for most of Amy’s behavior the last few days. Happy Anniversary, Amy and Blake! May you have many more filled with baby mice and Pete Doherty’s scabby face!

    Well, a lonely night in with fish & chips has got to be an improvement on a night either in or out with Pete Doherty. Happy anniversary, Amy. One year too many. Hope Blake gets a nice long prison sentence and you get your mojo back.

    As a Seattle girl myself, I’m just sad she didn’t get some Ivar’s tartar sauce and breaded shrimp. yum! Jaybird, are you from WA or Oregon?

    *also western Washington here… 🙂

    English Fish and Chips are the ultimate romantic meal for me… the first time I went to see my now husband in England our first meal together was take out fish and chips, wrapped in paper *sigh*, sitting on his couch wrapped up in a blanket *double sigh*. 😳 Maybe it has a sentimental meaning for her, too? Maybe Blake said “Go round the chip shop for me, baby, for our anniversary.”

    Or maybe she was just hungry.

    Mollination I’m from Seattle. And now that you mentioned it, I would give my left arm for some Ivars. NY does not understand how to do seafood. I cannot get proper smoked salmon here – and I look EVERYWHERE – only lox. That’s a great way to ruin a meal. Eat some chowder for me.

  6. Diva says:

    Hey, Jay… I live on a reservation a little south of Seattle, the fishermen here smoke their own (fish that is, lol)… SOOOOOOO good! I’d send ya some, lol. 🙂

    If Blake stays locked up, that celebrity marriage may actually last.

  8. geronimo says:

    Good point, cramiga. Blake incarcerated remains a tragic, romantic figure, feeding her ‘you and me against the world’ delusions.

    Whereas if they let him out, the daily scummy, leeching reality of him might bring her to her senses. Ain’t love grand. 🙄

    Many people eat that just about every night in the UK. It’s not a ‘mood’ thing – it’s their version of cheap take out. And nothing beats English f&c’s

    cod and chips….yummo

  11. gg says:

    I am told it’s much better in towns on the sea, like Brighton, for example. Which is my favorite for many reasons, part of which is, you can go out there on the windy beach at 10pm and people watch the yobs and slappers.

    she just gets sadder and sadder all the time.

    I think Pete is an amazing talent lulu. Here here! Hope he gets it together enough to record something.

    gg……the best one’s I ever had were in Inverness, Scotland. The cod was soooo fresh it was practically still alive. I can still remember sitting on a doorstep near the chip shop with a friend, wolfing it down and trying not to burn my mouth on a freezing sleety day. One of my best ever memories

    I’m flaming hungry now! Hold the jellied eels

    Hey… fish and chips does a girl good! To me, she looks more relaxed and may even be gaining weight. Perhaps together, Pete and Amy will support not only their drug habits, but may see their way out of the fog. Far fetched.. but hope burns eternal. Peace. 😕
