Word to my homeboys

Right, let’s see if I can’t type something meaningful about the Netguide awards. It turns out there were freebies, namely booze, meat and Netguides. What, no iPods? What a rip off.

I turned up incredibly unfashionably late and missed the awards ceremony, but I can reveal the following:

  • When Idolblog won the ‘best youth site’ award, some rapscallion yelled out ‘go Michael.’
  • The best personal blog winner was that librarian chick who turned out to be a guy. WTF? There goes all those hot lesbian fantasies I’ve been having about her, dammit.
  • I met a bunch of the Public Address guys, and they’re all rool choice.
  • Ah, free booze.
  • No one checked my ticket at the door. I could have been anyone. I could have been a terrorist.
  • That chick from that reality show has been bragging about how she rooted that guy from that other reality show.
  • My old school status was recognised. Yeah, I’ve been writing online since 1996, you bitches.
  • Sauvignon blanc.
  • This guy came up to me and he was like, “Are you Robyn?” Yes, yes I am.

I accidentally won a ticket to tomorrow’ night’s Netguide awards.

The Netguide awards are funny. They’re sponsored by the very same companies whose websites usually end up winning the awards. And when people do win the awards, well, they put out a press release but award certificates don’t tend to take pride of place on a wall of fame, but rather end up gathering dust, stacked on top of a filing cabinet (true story!).

But it seems like the actual event, the actual awards ceremony itself, might be a bit of fun, Well, it’s hosted by Jaquie Brown and she’s funny and cool, so at least that might work out. I’m hoping there’ll be some sort of goodie bag situation going on, but given that most of the sponsors are websites and ISP, I’m guess that there might not be much decent stuff to be given away.

Also, I never really liked Anthony much on “Australian Idol”, but I just saw him sing “On the line” and I was like “OMG! WTF! Unf!” and now I don’t care if he wins, as long as he doesn’t turn into a Celine Dion man.
