Well I’m still sort of recovering after Friday night’s South African Blog Awards, held at Chevelle club in Cape Town.
Well done to the organisers and sponsors (here) on the night and well done to all the nominees and bloggers that made it the success it was. I was also very pleased with the little angel bloggers running around – being all geek and sexy at the same time! What a great mix! It’s like a geek themed porno – but this time it’s real! I won’t even BEGIN to discuss those little angels in hot pants behind the VIP bar – so very naughty.

But then, most importantly, thank you to the 2oceansvibe readers who ensured that we brought home some of the prizes, including Best Overall Blog. Now, remember what I said to you before – there is a little bit of each of you inside me and these awards belong to YOU. I cannot confirm WHERE inside me. Some of you might be crammed inside my pinkie finger, whereas others might be inside my eye or the small of my back. But you are there. It feels so good it often makes me cry.
