Firstly my apologies for yesterdays naval gazing, I had a bad dose of the Mondays but today I am filled with hope and a sense of clarity despite being up till am having a full scale technical war trying to upload this badboy. Slay those January blues with a dose of funkSoulDiscoRapRockInaneChatAndAnthems.
Amidst my repeated and thoughtful meanderings towards the fridge last night (a trip that kept repeatedly presenting me with the same bag of giant beansprouts) in an effort to assuage the boredom of waiting for a giant upload I saw something stuck to the fridge door. It made no sense to me at all and the more I examined it the more it’s meaning eluded me. Under a small magnet of the Mona Lisa which has been bought in the Louvre by my dear mother was a small scrap of cardboard with a hand written scrawl in blue pen. It read “Celebrity Big Blogger”.
Now there are a couple of ways of explaining this. One is that I was drunk and had one of those ideas that you think is fantastic on the couch at 3am and I grabbed the corner of whatever cardboard was lying around and in my less than perfect script tried to help to remind myself of this winning idea. The second is that I had a dream and wrote this for examination when I woke up (as I often do as my dreams are reliably surreal). I feel the dream is more likely but since I cannot remember I (or you) will have to speculate.
I think it had to be a dream involving the big brother house in Dublin somewhere constructed by the glorious and all powerful Endemol, a house filled with Irish celebrity bloggers. Instead of that Newcastle fella announcing it to be day 14 they shall replace him with a new fresh announcer with a thick Athlone accent. We could place all the winners from the categories in the upcoming Irish Blog Awards into the plush house and watch the fireworks, perhaps the winner could get a two-book-deal. It would be a lyrically snide fight to the death where instead of the diary room contestants would enter the “blogging room”. The possibilities are endless.
Any thoughts on contestants or weekly challenges? This could get personal.
