Only a few weeks to go until the Irish Blog Awards.
We have a bit of a problem there.
I phoned the hotel that we’re booked into, but they don’t allow dogs. Bastards.
I phoned a few more hotels in the area and eventually found one that does allow dogs. Herself took one look at the hotel and said that there was no fucking way she was staying there. And they were her words.
So I’m just going to have to leave out a few ingredients, and Sandy will have to cook her own meals. As long as she doesn’t try fillet of steak again, as she nearly burned the house down last time.
There is a sort of thingy doing the rounds at the moment. I don’t know who started it, but people are naming five bloggers they would like to meet on the night, that they haven’t already met. I notice my name hasn’t cropped up so far?
The first of my list has to be Bock. There is a very simple reason for putting his name at the top – he owes me a feed of pints. What more can I say?
I don’t know if Robert Sweetnam is going, but I would like to meet him too, as he helped me out of a rather nasty hole a few weeks ago. I would like to
buy him get Bock to buy him a few pints.
A meet up with English Mum would be interesting. Not only does she have a fetish for beards, but she keeps threatening to call over while leaving her smalls behind. I am intrigued by this, but getting rid of Herself for an hour or two could be a problem.
McAWilliams? I would like to meet a bloke who can be so obsessed by Twitter.
Finally [as I am restricted to five] I have to say that Paddy Bloggit is on my card. He has just bought himself a new [old] house and I’m sure he wants an introduction to someone who will look after it for the summer months when he is living in his shed?
Actually, I’m going to cheat.
I am not only going to exceed my five, but I’m going to include one or two from across The Pond, just to show there are no hard feelings.
Cranky Canuck and I have fought a couple of wars together, though we have never met. It would be nice to swap strategies in person.
Talking of war, it would be nice if Brianf were there. We have spoken many times by Skype, and he is another that Bock could buy a pint [or five] for.
And of course there is Kirk M. There is something about Kirk M. I like his style of writing, and his humour. I think we would get on very well.
Provided, of course that Bock hasn’t left me legless.
