Annie's London Underground Diary Highly Commended in Guardian Awards

Just because she's been twisting my arm and giving me Chinese Burns, I wanted to say congratulations and well done to my able co-researcher Annie Mole, whose London Underground Diary was highly commended in The Guardian's Best British Blog Awards, specialist category. She keeps moaning that the winner was a dead guy - Samuel Pepys - admittedly a far more famous diarist than she is.

And having looked at it, it does seem a bit weird to give it to someone who basically has done a lot of typing by entering bits from Pepys Diary online. It would have seemed more interesting if the links the writer - Phil Gyford - references went back to modern day links on the net, but they just go back to other posts in "his" diary. But hey, when have awards ever been uncontraversial?
