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 built in a fever of excitement when I first moved here in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a fake paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
