A quick post about The Irish Whiskey Awards: All of my internet friends were there, and yet somehow my e-vite failed to make it through the firewall on my dial-up Windows 95 PC. Ah well, I couldn’t have gone anyway as I had a previous engagement – sitting watching it unfold on Twitter whilst crying.
Here are the details:
