So the Irish Blog Awards are nearly upon us again.
Head Rambles has been eliminated from three categories and remains in just one in this round – Best Humour Blog - which let to some significant tantrums from Grandad. Quite honestly, I was delighted as it removes the agony of having to decide which category to go for (as a blog can only enter under one).
Both Grandad and I will be attending. Seeing as we are two aspects of the one person, it would be somewhat difficult for one to go and the other to stay at home, and it only remains to be seen which rules on the night.
I am a quiet person by nature. I am the type who will sidle into a room and find a quiet corner where I can sup a pint and watch others having the fun. Grandad’s inclination is to dive straight for the best looking woman on the place and try for a grope. These are mutually exclusive actions so it should be interesting.
After the last awards ceremony, a couple of Grandad’s readers said they saw him/me there but were too shy to introduce themselves. If only they knew that I would probably been the shyest of the group. What’s worse, I love meeting not only my readers, but writers of other blogs, and I feel I missed out now.
I’m looking forward to the night, I must say. I think the chances of Grandad winning are slim to none, but for me that’s not the point. I’m looking forward to the craic, and meeting old friends. Hopefully, I’ll make a few new ones too.
I’ll have to keep Grandad in check though…….
