In previous years / quarters, these nominations and awards have been held at a proper white-tablecloth luncheon at a classy restaurant. Today's event was held in the meeting room, and on offer were microwave-warmed party pies, sausage rolls and chicken wingdings. No beverages, not so much as a cup of coffee. The whole catering effort seemed as though someone had just nipped down to Woolies and grabbed a few packets out of the freezer section.
Still, it beats the alternative. I do still have a job at least.
