Well I return with a great interviewee this week, one who was mistaken for a popstar if you can believe it.
But we will get to that later.
This is Matthew Webster, 27 from our very own County Town of Kent, Maidstone!
So Matt is his name and Account Management is his game (Occupation for all those who are not up to date with their rhyming slangs).
As always, I like to find out what my interviewees like about Kent and this is what Matt had to say.
"I like the people, the places and the general atmosphere of Kent."
To expand on what Matt has said, he likes having a game of football with his mates, shortly followed by a cold pint or 10 down the Albion and the elegant banter with other fans about who is the greatest footballing side in England. We both know it is Manchester United but he lets them stress their point on why the other teams are worthy of competing against United before casually turning to them and singing "He scores goals galore, he scores goals, he scores goals galore, he scores goals, he scores goals galore, he scores goals, Paul Scholes, he scores goals."
A fitting tribute to one of the greatest English Midfielders of modern day football and also a great way of sticking it to the other football fans.
Since the beginning of 2011, I have introduced a new question which is designed to find out what the people of Kent really know about their County and to see if they can inform others in Kent of interesting facts or pieces of information that are not well known.
"Kent is the most populous County in the UK." Matt said "Over 1.6 million people reside in Kent."
I found this to be a very interesting fact as I thought Greater London and the Northern Counties such as Lancashire had bigger populations so thanks Matt.
Matt's favourite eating spot is Buenos Aires in Maidstone which he describes as "The best steak in the county."
In his free time, Matt likes to compete in various sports such as Football, Squash and Tennis. Equally, he does enjoy going to the Cinema, eating out at a range of eating spots and socialising with his friends.
So the part you have been waiting for, the mistaken identity of a popstar. I let Matt fill in the rest.
"I was once spotted by a young woman who worked in the Bowling Alley in Maidstone who thought I was Danny from Mcfly. I played along temporarily before confessing. It was a long time ago."
Looking at the picture above, I think this woman was either crazy or blind because I see no resemblance. Sorry Matt!
As always, it is important for me to find out my interviewees thoughts on how to improve the county.
"I think the county could have some bigger gigs / festivals. We have the space for it and I think it could be a big money spinner for the county. We have a picturesque county so we should utilise it. I'd certainly go..."
Again this suggestion has come up and I think it is about time that we did start using the facilities available in Kent to cater to the entire population. Often there are events held that are in the interest of a small majority of people which is a waste of public money and inconsiderate to the rest of the residents in Kent.
And now for my random question of the week: If you could travel to any planet in the Solar System, which one would it be and why?
"I think it would be Jupiter. I liked the song by Train and it looks cool. Mysterious."
A good choice!
So another Kentish resident has given me their views and opinions on our county and as always I would like to extend my thanks to Matt, my interviewee, for his time.
I will post again soon so who knows, it could be you next!
If you live in Kent, let's talk!
If you would like to appear on my blog, all I ask is that you live in Kent and that you are willing to talk to me for 10 - 15 minutes about yourself.
If you think you'd like to give it a try, drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do!
