Ja. So I went to the SA Blog Awards Ceremony last night. I’m a nosy parker. I was curious. I wanted to spy on other bloggers.
But, of course, I was on my ace (since Rox stood me up, beeeeeyaaaaatch.)
So, Amstel (schwwwweeeeeeet Amstel) in hand, I tackled the first chick I spotted on her own and struck up a conversation.
Turns out Jenty was down from Jo’burg on business and thought she’d pop in since her photoblog was up for an award. What a fab woman. Though how she manages two children, two blogs (one of which she posts on every single day) and a job, I donno! Respect. And she won! In the best photoblog category. I felt hugely smug by association. (But utterly crap that I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. Sorry Jents. I want to know how you got the tree back to Jo’burg!)
The only point at which I was tempted to boo and growl a little, was when Thought Leader won best blog of the year and an Xbox. Hisssssssssssssss. Ag. I can like to be a bit more of a grownup. Congrats okes. Seriously.
And I’m gutted Kyk didn’t win something. I just don’t understand it. Really.
Two more Amstels later I was up for some more schmoozing. Butlers arrived with a large amount of pizza, which was good as I was able to counteract the Amstel Damage so that when I nattered to the blogger folk I wouldn’t make a complete arse of myself.
So not a bad evening. Even if I’ve discovered I can’t comment on Jenty’s blog because of our idiotic service providers. Grr. I shall be revenged.
More of the winners and runner’s up here.
