Pimping Oliver

Hey Party People! I forgot to announce that my very good friend, Oliver (aka OliverBrave), is in the States this week. Go stalk him, now!

Do any of you remember when I was pimping out his project near the end of April this year? And remember how I was the first American to submit my video? And how it was such a fun project that I got nothing out of other than the pure joy of helping a friend with a fun project? Seriously, I got no compensation (other than instant recognition when I walk down the street - oh wait, that's from something else. Nevermind.)

The reason I ask is that it has been nominated for a prize. Oliver was one of the the creators of 15x15 which is one of four finalists in the Art category at the 2006 FlashForward Awards . Winners will be announced tonight. Wish him luck telepathically or leave a comment, he checks in here from time to time!.

I totally wanted to go to Austin myself and hang out with him but I'll have to be satisfied with a phone call. My amazing, extraordinary and uber-hunky husband even said I could go!! He's too good for me. Mr. Q - you are an angel! (sidenote: post is forthcoming on how fab Mr. Q is and how he spoils me.) Anyway.

Oliver, you are da bomb! Good luck tonight. Let us know how it goes (I know. I know. It's an honor just to be nominated!). I'm one of your biggest fans, you know!

P.S. Call me before you jet back to England, if you can!

Well, it is the morning after the night before and I just wanted to thank you all for your telepathic wishes - I am officially a FlashForward 2006 winner in the Art category, and staying true to the British way... I am 'bloody chuffed!'.

I just got a total of two hours sleep, my eyes like death (no joke) and got back from a 24 breakfast cafe at 4:45am. It was a great night!

WP - it is a shame we couldn't meet up, but thank you to Mr. Q for being totally understanding about it! [Your wife is one of the coolest people on the planet and I envy your position!].

Well, I don't have a hangover, so I could still be drunk - people were putting Vodka Soda's in my hand all night and that doesn't come without a physical price!

Take care everyone, and watch this space... I might be joining you all again soon.
