Spud Sunday: Spud Goes South

When I say south, I mean Kinsale, and if you had been in search of fish, mad hairy Slovenians and actual-in-person bloggers this weekend, then you would have hit the jackpot at the culmination of Kinsale Arts Week. The fish were fresh and plentiful in the many fine eateries that populate the town, the Slovenians, in the form of the absolutely lunatic-but-in-good-way Terrafolk, entertained in the magnificent setting of Charles Fort and I was there doing my bit to help fulfill the last part of the equation, participating in a panel discussion on potatoes blogging.

The Fairytale of Cork

We interrupt this blog to bring you news that Cinderella went to the Blog Awards Ball after all.

This, it turns out, was just as well, because Cinderella was called upon to take the long walk to the stage to accept a wonderful glass slipper trophy as winner of the food ‘n’ drink edible category. She also got to meet some of the many inhabitants of blogoland, including the mythical Irish blogfather, whose actual existence she had often wondered about, because she’d only ever read about him in fairytales blogs. So bedazzled was she by the whole proceedings that she forgot all about leaving the premises by midnight and found that it was somewhat closer to 4am when she finally retired. She was very thankful to all involved for a most excellent evening and was glad that nothing turned into a pumpkin as a result of the lateness of the finishing hour. It’s entirely possible, however, that some people’s heads may have felt like pumpkins this morning, which may not have been the fairytale ending they were hoping for. They will, no doubt, get over it though, and we sincerely hope that they will all blog happily ever after.

We now promise to return you to your regularly scheduled Spud Sunday programming.
