The teachers put a little star on my blog

I’ve been longlisted.

Be gentle with me, for this is my first time.

Long lustings now, sigh, I am familiar with those alright. Strong long lustings at that. Strong and wrong long lustings actually. (Jakers, it's like an Andrex ad in here, in more ways than one perhaps).

Longlisting though, I must confess I am unschooled. In my naivety I thought it was, maybe, the motion sickness of old seadogs struggling to find landlegs after years upon the buoyant swell. But nope, it’s not the same thing at all.

Hmmm. Longlisting.

Here, would being near the bottom of a very lengthy longlist, of boys that Caroline Morahan would allow into boobtown, count as previous experience of longlisting? I finished above cut throat competition such as Sloth from the Goonies and Jabba the Hutt but alas, trailed in dejectedly behind Timothy Spall. This hit me hard. But in any event, it's not the same sort of...

...longlisting. Wait up, I had a really old uncle who never put his teeth in, he sounded really funny when he talked, how’s about that? No…sorry, shit. That’s long lisping. Damn.

Listen, I’ll just have to figure it out on my own. I think it’s got something to do with the Irish Blog Awards or something.

I don’t know how they work either, but I gather it’s taken them a while to sort through a lot of blogs and judge them or some such.

Longsifting I think they call it.

17 moos and woofs:

yes, this longlisting is all rather worrying. First I thought it was something like dogging, but in a supermarket. Christ, I just don't know anymore.

Susan said...

Good luck! (I can say that sincerely because we're in different categories, you and I) I'm good at longlisting but not so good at shortlisting, so I'm waiting to see if my publishing experience bleeds over to my blogging one.

(Are you having a sudden writer's block too, btw??)

Every blog should discuss Caroline Morahan's boobtown a bit more. Really.

Baino said...

I know a judge . . send money! (actually it's a very cliquey thing from what I can gather. I reckon I can tell you the winners right now!) Bitter? Moi? Just cos I can't be nominated . .

hope said...

Baino we non-Irish but supportive of said people will have to host our own awards. :)

That made me look McDanger. At least now I know what we're talking about. Good luck!

Kath Lockett said...

Hey, break a leg Terence and I mean that in the blog-equivalent of just-about-to-walk-out-on-stage-and-fully-kick-acting's-arse kind of way.

Terence McDanger said...

Cheers Leeroy. Which carpark do you prefer? High rise?

Cheers Susan. And yes, in answer to your question, with work busyness on top.

Narocroc, Caroline's boobs are a national treasure. I'd love to give them the freedom of the city in a lavish ceremony

Baino, I'm just chuffed to have got this far, to be honest I'm not very au fait with the workings of the whole thing at all.

Hope, it's what we call a teaser!

Thank you Kath, I expect this will mark the end of my run but hey, it's the taking part that counts, right?

This is too long to check for typos by the way.

First time reader, first time commentator. Your blog, like, totally rocks dude. We should like totally hang, y'knaw?

Too much fresh air down here.

I do like a good highrise, but any Lidl car park is filled with hope (and occasionally joy)
