TTBYHCMT Nominated for Another Catholic Blog Award



David Bowie's 'Fame'

Well, what can I say? I've been nominated for not just one Catholic blog award but now I've been nominated for another, this time, in the Catholic New Media Awards. I'm in a few categories, the 'People's Choice' blog award (when I die, obviously I want Tony Blair to say, "He was the people's blogger"), 'Best Blog by a Man', 'Best Written Blog', 'Most Spiritual Blog', 'Most Informative Blog', 'Funniest Blog', 'Most Entertaining Blog', and 'Best New Blog'.

Obviously, should I triumph in any of these categories I would accept the award graciously. The glamourous Catholic New Media Award presenters may find themselves saying, "And the winner of the 'Best New Blog' is...

[cue drum rolls and nervous opening of gold, shiny envelope]...

Laurence England!

[cue 30 seconds of 'Bigmouth Strikes Again' by The Smiths and camera angles of the audience clapping while supping on champagne and being served by waiters]

However, it may be that I will be away working on the 'difficult second blog' in a monastery on a remote island off the coast of Spain, in a desperate bid to outfox brother and sister bloggers in the 'Best Spiritual Blog' category for next year.

Should that situation occur, the presenters may say, "Unfortunately, Laurence is unable to be here tonight to accept this award, because he is working on that 'difficult second blog' in a Monastery off the coast of Spain. But let's join him now by live webcam satellite link-up."
