A bit about my Twittering
My name is Paul Garrard and I tweet under the name of @PGarrard. But you probably already know that as the chances are that you've arrived here from my link on Twitter. I'm a lad from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk now living in Norwich, Norfolk. My tweets are sometimes surreal, sometimes pedantic and I'm consistently inconsistent. I have a sense of humour so don't always take me too seriously; sadly my irony is lost on some people.

My art
For my sins I create. If you’d like to see some examples of my art please visit:

Things I tend to tweet about
Anything and everything basically, apart from what I might arrogantly and disparagingly refer to as 'pleb culture'; I'm sure you know the sort of thing, 'celebrity', naff telly programmes and sport to name but a few. I am particularly interested in: politics, visual arts, music, poetry, comedy, theatre, pubs, real ale, food, equality, peace, travel, Norwich, general philosophy and the meaning of life.

I dislike
Injustice, discrimination, inequality, Americanisms (but not American culture), sport, lager, the afore mentioned 'pleb culture', radio phone-ins and anyone who doesn't assume secularism to be society's default position.

My following policy
I follow people that I think will have something interesting to say. I try to follow everyone who follows me if I think they follow me for, that intangible, 'the right reasons'. I will not follow you if you are peddling get rich quick dreams, sex, mumbo jumbo or fundamentalist nonsense. I might not follow you if you don't display a photo of some sort on Twitter. If I don't follow you and you think you might have fallen through the net please let me know.

I have two main ones. The first is Of-Course which like Twitter deals with anything and everything. The second is The art of being Paul Garrard which a bit of a gallery of some of my art. I'm not the world's most prolific blogger!

I don't - it's pointless!

#Hashtag games
I don't - they are juvenile and tedious - I may unfollow you if you do too much of it!
