The man from Piat d’Or…

Loyal readers, we’ve often said that if you’ve got something to launch or an announcement to make, you should think about using the extremely well-read and influential pages of our little TWL blog. Oddly, few people choose to take us up on this kind offer. Can’t think why.

Oh yes. It’s because they think we’ll rip the right royal piss out of it.

But that’s not always the case. Just usually. It’s worth a try though, isn’t it? Now we’re getting almost literally millions of visits every day from around the world, imagine the exposure you could get yourself. And any publicity is good publicity, surely?

One man who’s willing to give it a go is freelance consultant Mark Pinsent. He came to our Christmas party, don’t you know? Lanky fella…shiny hair. Anyway, a couple of days ago we received an email from Pinsent letting us know that he’d started a new blog. This didn’t exactly fill us with enormous amounts of New Year joy, as we assumed it’d be yet another tech PR blogging about blogging which, to be honest, we’re a bit bored with (more on that later).

But no, it’s not the case! Pinsent lives in France, apparently, and in common with TWL has for many years been an enthusiastic consumer of wine without having the first clue about what he was shoving down his neck. But he’s decided to change all that and start learning stuff…and he’s going to stick it all on his new blog, Red Vin Man (there’s nothing like a good pun, and that’s nothing like…etc etc).

Go and have a look. Go on. It’s great. A really, really good read.

Oh, yes, and Pinsent’s promised us that if his stats show a whole bunch of people flooding to his blog from TWL, he’ll send us something fruity with great legs and a fantastic nose. Though he can’t vouch for the rest of her.

I thank you.

PS – Another thought! Maybe he can advise us on the booze for our next TWL drink up? It’s coming soon…more on that later too.

Hmmm, my suspicious have been aroused.

Yes, we've heard that you're easily aroused Stephen...and we know what you're thinking, too. Many people do. Makes sense really, doesn't it?

Good on him, doing what he does best - drinking loads of faaaaine waaaaine and getting to write about it too.

More importantly, does that mean Pinny gets massive discounts on the odd cheeky little number?

Hang abaaaahhhttt.

TWL: “Makes sense really, doesn’t it?”

Do I sense a stitch-up?

And Tarbett, if I do get offered and discounts I’ll be sure to let you know. However, at this stage I’d like to stress that “drinking loads of faaaaine waaaaine” is not what I do best. For any clients tuning in, what I do best is provide exemplary PR services at incredible value for money, and will continue to do so. Drinking wine is just a hobby.

Is anyone else not just even a wee bit jealous of the life Pinny now lives?? Quaffing fine wines in his French Chateau on a Monday evening whilst sat beside his swimming pool? There is hope for us all...

So who thinks Pinny = TWL?

Who else would have the time to write all this....

Caroline Tarbett said...

No, no - you're right, you're right! Sorry, retracted. As Justin says, what Pinny actually does best is manage to have wangled the most amazing life where he gets to drink faaaaaine waaaaaaine, sipped by the pool, with his lovely family AND manage to set up a website devoted to drinking faaaaaaine waaaaine (say what you like, Pinny, there's a theme emerging here). Oh, yes, and produce some okay work here and there ;)

Looking forward to the free case of wine!

Did someone say free wine? Ooooh...

Onto you said...

IN-teresting. There's a turn of phrase in this text that may have uncovered you TWL.
