Move aside, Oscars
So tomorrow is the big day for Irish Bloggers.
Blogging certainly seems to be attracting some interest from the ‘mainstream’ media. There have been numerous mentions in the press, and bloggers are begining to make their appearence on the TV.
As Damien Mulley says in his blog, there is another article in the Irish Times today, not to mention the News at 6, though I haven’t seen that yet.
I know of course that CapitalD are running a feature on blogging next Thursday at 7pm on RTE1, so doubtless you will all be tuning into that.
I know that next week we will get endless coverage of the acceptance speeches, and how they cried when receiving their awards. And there will be the endless photos of the dresses that celebrities wore [“Tom Raftery looked absolutely devine in his low cut Armani dress, but Donncha O’Caoimh captured the spotlight with his ruffled gown that was the stuff of little girls dreams”]. But that is the price of fame.
So I wish all the best to the finalists, and in particular to the ones I voted for. I will be there in spirit, if not in person [damn this health thing!!]
Damn you – that Armani dress was supposed to be a surprise!
Now what am I supposed to wear?
Ah! You know you’ve been dying to wear that slinky little John Rocha number………!!
Donncha won’t be able to attend this year, so if he wins anything someone else will have to accept on his behalf
I will be trying to see you on RTE1 on
Thursday. I suppose I can just click on
Capital D and maybe you will be there.
Actually, I don’t have much luck with
stuff like that, so hope I get to see you.
I will be looking at 2 P.M. Eastern U.S.A.
Is Sandy and herself in it ,too?
ARE Sandy and Herself in it,too.
I was meant to go. But I’m in two minds because I’d like to appear on Brianf and Jefferson Davis’ podcast, but I’d also like to go to these awards.
In short, I have developed the power of astral projection. That way I can be in Dublin and Cavan – a torturous two-and-a-half hour bus journey away – at the same time.
@Nancy – I don’t know what the story is regarding the programme. It should be on the RTE site after transmission anyway, so there is no nee to stay up!!
And no. Herself disappeared and didn’t resurface until the coast was clear. If you are [un]lucky, they’ll show the bit with me walking with my daughter and Sandy. They were intrigued by Sandy, who got very wet and muddy.
By the way, if you think you’re going to look foolish on TV, try tuning into the Jefferson Davis podcast this week. I think I left the impression that I’m a total knob.
I think I did anyway, which is rather unfoirtunate.
