Logies

'Tis Logie time. I don't think I have ever taken much notice of them and I am certainly not watching tonight. I will get the goss tomorrow from the press and bloggers. But what a hoot of a walk down memory lane to recall, recalling what I didn't see, the 1978 Logies. Mary Hardy mouthing off as usual.

  1. That was a great story on Mary Hardy :)
    There were no wardrobe malfunctions this year, apparently, so ho hum.

  2. No one visibly drunk either. The slicker these productions become, the more boring they are.

  3. Listened to 3aw on the way home last night from work and they had some reporter girl there at the Logies. She said the red carpet took the longest she ever did see it, 4 hours to get through to the room...and far into the main course they were already! Lamb shanks on the menu they said...hooo-haaa, I wanna be a star and go there, just to wait 4 hours to eat my meal, get pissed on top shelf stuff and gossip in the loos with the stars....oh, and of course go to the after party, LMAO
    Well, thing is, I think The Logies, like the Brownklow, hads become boring and much a show for fashion rather than for the hard work some actors deservedly get credit for.

  4. Show me any one on the present day Logie presenters and nominees who can come up with a spontaneous Mary Hardy-like oneliner, and I'll walk naked down Bourke St. (Lock up the horses lest they be frightened ... and envious.)

  5. "any one OF the present" that would be. (Blame Coppertop's just delivered barrel of pre mixed G'n'T for the trypo.)

  6. 'trypo', must have been stronger than I usually mix. I did let the barrel mature for 5 hours under the queen (sorry Shirl) size doona, a tad longer than normal.

  7. 'trypo' - sorry Coppertop. Forgot the mandatory parsley and white source.

  8. Lamb shanks are interesting to me Cazzie. I will write about them soon. Of course we all secretly want to be there.

    No danger of seeing M'lord's magnificence. Please do not pollute my blog with mentions of tripe, parsley sauce or not.

  9. re: "no drunks this year" - on a blog elsewhere, somebody reported that "the waiters were very mean with drinks" - like that was 'mean' instead of 'planned'.

    Miss Mary Hardy MHDSRIP

  10. We could only vaguely imagine what Ms Hardy would say about waiters being mean with drinks.
