Excitamification

People are getting very excited about this thing tonight:

Mates have been texting me all morning. People who work in the biz, old friends, people who I haven’t heard from in months! One very dear friend even gave me her lucky dollar bill.

Thanks to everyone but I was second last in the bookies betting and they don’t make a living out of being wrong πŸ™‚ Maybe there’s an element of having done this for 14 years now and never having won any of these things, maybe there’s the belief that in order to win you would have to have campaigned hard (which I didn’t), maybe it would be surreal to beat people of the stature I’m up against but it ain gon’ happen. I get to present one tonight and that’s honour enough for me.

That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the votes and the lovely thoughts, I very much do!
