Ooh see me in the paper (possibly)

FG ≫ 2012 ≫ Ooh see me in the paper (possibly)

We did a new quiz last night, in place of our regular Wednesday quiz at The Britannia. This was a charity fundraiser organised by the Rotary Club that Clare's uncle is a member of. It was at The Grand, and huge, about 50 teams in, so we weren't expecting much. But we came joint second, so won a prize of four bottles of wine. Had to go up to the front to collect, be presented with the wine, and have my photo taken too. Maybe it's for the Rotarians newsletter, but if it's a slow week I expect we'll be in the Folkestone Herald too. Actually it's always a slow news week around here, what I mean is if they have less than a certain number of drink drivers to fill the paper with, maybe they'll find room for a mention of the Rotary Club quiz.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for best venues and things, + I know it was a useful reference for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
