Dry ice & Rick
Rick O'Shea was a funny and amiable host, there was free rum and, in the young and hip crowd, lots of cool frocks and choppy haircuts. There were a few souls like myself who didn't seem to be 'in' or know what was going on but it was all very good humoured and jolly.
The funeral of Irish blogging
It started with lots of dry ice and a funeral for blogging now that Twitter has taken over the world somewhat (even I have succumbed...) There were videos from top notch entertainers of the likes of the gorgeous Miriam O'Callaghan; the Dorian Gray-like Bosco and the equally non-aging Ballydung Twins, Podge and Rodge. All very tongue in cheek and entertaining.
Podge & Rodge, giving bloggers a hard time
The awards themsleves went swiftly and many of the winners seemed to be serial winners (at least one four in a row). There was a bit of muttering about that of the variety of 'Please give someone else a chance, this is all just a bit predictable'.
There was a fabulous exhibition of paintings by Liam Daly in the loft. I hope he deosn't mind me showing an image or two here.
I found the whole night very enjoyable and, though we had to leave early for the long drive back to the babysitters, would happily go again and, hopefully, stay for the dancing too.
Screen cap of WWR - the excitement!
