Anybody who was around Oxford from 1978 to about 2008 will remember Nick Thomas, who has now joined the ranks of the blogging brotherhood. For those of you who have never enjoyed his company, Nick is a former columnist for both the Times and the Daily Telegraph, a playwright, essayist, wit and raconteur - and almost certainly the most bone-idle fellow I have ever known. He is now married to an achingly lovely young woman who is not only half his age, but also seriously rich. The couple have two delightful children and live in Amsterdam.
Nick's blog can be found at the Pissedoldhack.com URL, and it is less a traditional weblog, and more an outlet for his essays. Pop over there and be prepared for a master class in the art of the essayist.
