I'm a bit anal.
Get your mind out of the gutter and put that thing back in the drawer, that's not what I mean.
I've never been comfortable going off topic here, but in this instance it's very much intertwined with all that has gone before, so I will declench and carry on.
The blog has made it to the final of the Irish blog awards for 2010, in the Personal Blog category, which is generously sponsored by Microsoft Ireland’s Developer and Platform Group.
I'm glad it's gone through in this category, as dodgy sperm, hand shandys, and all the rest of it is normally considered fairly personal. This is just another one of the pretty cool things that has come about as a result of writing all this nonsense in the last 12 months, getting mentioned as one of the 20 blogs to read by the Irish Times, getting to bloody write in the Irish Times, and even having a chat with Pat Kenny.
Weird, but cool, and all because of the wee minx across the landing who I'm trying not to awaken with my typing.
The awards take place next Saturday 27th March in Galway, and the other 4 finalists in the category are top notch.
Some of you may argue otherwise, but I'm the only owner of a set of testicles among them. I'm a token male. Story of my life.
The finalists are last year's deserved winner Annie Rhiannon, Fatmammycat who was one of the first I ever read, and the other two Queen Of Pots! and A Chick Named Hermia (which I can't not read as Hernia, sorry) were previously unknown to me but really do look impressive.
Good luck ladies, and enjoy the night.
