    Any chance of a caption for each photo identifying each person by name, please ? I don't recognise anyone, that's all (though I expect I'd probably recognise some names once some given to the faces).

  • Joanna,

    As well as voting, we hope you'll all come and party with us on the night! It's only $5 on the door, from 6.30pm at Mighty Mighty on December 3. I'll be wearing a pretty dress, as usual, and we have a metric buttload of spot prizes for you to win AND the Amazing Traveling Photobooth will be there AND we've got a DJ afterwards AND then there's a whole bunch of bands Mighty have arranged as well. You're especially encouraged to buy us drinks and/or give us pashes.

    Yes there is a very good chance of getting that. Well, at least for that first pic.

    Sorry, that's "I'll be wearing Megan's pretty dress with the requisite amount of cleavage on show"

  • Megan Wegan,

    You look better in the dress than I do, to be fair.

    I am looking forward to this being the first Wellingtonista Awards I can drink at.

    Drinking at the TAWAs? That's so against everything we stand for...

    Giving up chewing tobacco was the only resolution for 2009 that I managed to keep.

  • Joanna,

    Hadyn, you're too modest, I can't believe you didn't mention the famous people who came to our awards...

    I'm not that famous... oh, you probably mean Giovanni

    Which made me think "Tiso's not that famous"...

  • Joanna,

    Hell, we don't even need the Wellingtonista anymore, we can just use the comments thread here. Hey everyone, avoid Pirie Street and the buses that run through the tunnel today cos they're digging it all up.

    That man can overact even when he leans his elbow on a bartop. How does he do it?

    Snobs maybe, but elitist? Never!

    Well, a member of the group would say that, wouldn't they?

    On the other hand, I've encountered quite a number of people who roll their eyes, shake their heads, and respond to the TAWAs using the "h" word. Yes, "hipsters". There I said it.

    I think a key distinction may be that this group doesn't have a 'favourite suburban destination' because they live in the suburbs already.

    We can't be real hipsters though, because we don't believe that being called a hipster is the worst thing in the world.

  • Jeremy Andrew,

    How many hipsters does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Well, its an obscure little number, you probably haven't heard of it...

    Oh, this joke sounds so much better on vinyl, but make sure you get the German pressing of it.

    Pfft, we were making hipster jokes, like, a year ago.

    I liked that hipster joke about three years ago, before anyone had told it.

    I don't know about Hipsters, but if the Wgtn peeps are anything like the Auckland peeps, there's an awful lot of erudition around. I just sit quietly. It's better that way.

    We're nothing like Aucklanders, death first!
