Well, some of the longlists are out for the Irish Blog Awards 2008 and bugger me with a fish fork if I haven’t actually been picked for something! I was always picked last in games (childbearing hips - my own personal cross to bear) so this means a lot. I’m in the ‘Best Personal Blog’ category, along with some very tough competition: the wondrous Grandad, lovely Flirty, Annie, Nats and Conortje to name a few, I’m also in ‘Best Food and Wine Blog’ along with Wee Jen and Manuel the Waiter. My mates Isitjustme and 73man have been nominated for Best Newcomer, and the lovely Annie Rhiannon is in the ‘Best Designed Blog’ too! Lovely Fat Mammy Cat got about a squillion nominations in lots of different categories and is bound to clean up. Well done y’all. Go us, eh? Champers! Pass the champers!!
PS: Just seen I’m in the list for Best Blog too! (along with 135 others, but hey, at least I’m there!)
PPS: If Fat Mammy Cat’s post on fox hunting doesn’t win the Best Blog Post award, then I’m a monkey’s uncle (and I’m not. I checked.)
