News Nose Gets Picked By The Guardian

It seems I've been mentioned in the Guardian. Page 33 of The Guide to be exact, in the 'Internet Picks' section. At the top of 'Blog roll: Kent'. Just above the excellent Margate Architecture. Thanks to all the readers who emailed me with the news.

Of course, it's nothing less than the fame and recognition I deserve after years of slogging away to bring you this crap finely crafted prose every day. I think I'll celebrate by popping back to the Beer Festival and chucking down another 14 pints!

Speaking of Margate architecture, well, Ramsgate Architecture actually, I see in the IOTG the planning inspectorate has overturned TDC's refusal for permission for flats on the site of the Granville Restaurant in Ramsgate
(the one they shouldn't have started to demolish, but now they can cos the Planning inspectorate in Bristol says it's fine.)

Well done sir, it's nice to see someone from around here actually getting some credit in the broadsheets. You are the best thing to happen to Thanet since Tracey Emin. In fact, you are the only thing to happen to Thanet since Tracy.

I've got her number actually if you fancy doing a bit of erotic drunken celebrating with the Traceter, she's quite naughty actually, the things I could tell you

Good picture of the ferry Richard, have you got a new camera?

Richard Eastcliff said...

As you know Michael, I'm a surreptitious snapper. A quick whip-out of the old iPhone and I'm gone. That way I don't get arrested at WC, and it doesn't take people three cups of coffee before the photos have loaded.

As you can see by the credit, the shot was supplied by a reader. Who presumably does have a good camera. I've downsized the file.

Michael Child said...

Sorry Richard not only did I fail to spot the credit but commented on the wrong post, I put it down to Saturday night.

Richard Eastcliff said...

I get days/weeks/years like that too Michael!

Rebecca has sex on the brain and admitting knowing Tracy Emin .. well thats a social gaffe for a start.

Thanet could well do without noth of you!
