publicity is free

The picture has nothing to do with the post, apart from the fact that it’s Christmas and I was once given a SuperWoman mug in my stocking (not that long ago in fact).

So, to the post.

Nice Natalie Hanman has linked here with this piece that is really inspired by Nice Nina’s naughty book. Anyway, I’m very happy to enjoy the tailwind of free promotion: dear Guardian readers, you are most welcome here. And now I feel bad for being so nasty about Barbara Ellen’s Cif on the Africa Service. (But it was a little bit slap-dash wasn’t it?)
