We sat with the tension of an Australian entertainer looking forward to the morning’s Daily Mail until late Wednesday night as we awaited the results of the pwnie.com awards. We nursed our coco/vodka/champagne (Jav/Andrew/Thom( respectively) as the news trickled in.
We had a few key people on the scene, recounting the experience to us.
Given the competition, we had the champagne on ice, the shisha warmed, and the alarms set (we were after all operating in the much more civilised Greenwich Meantime).
Given the timezone differences though, we went to bed, and set our Google Alerts for the impending winning announcement.
We awoke to the news that we hadn’t won. Unfortunately our beautifully coloured, tempo’ed, written and choreographed song didn’t tweak the judges auditory senses as much as the dulcet tones of @0xabad1dea with a beautifully timed Christmassy SSL thematically themed jingle.
We are gutted, but happy for the ultimate winner (of course).
Congratulations @0xabad1dea / Melissa, you were a worthy opponent.
