It was more sarcasm, as my kids were all excited about some crappy pop artist that was just on while I was looking at the board.

EDIT - but as previously stated I'm always wrong LOL

Yep - you wait until the UK/Europe people get on the board in about an hour only to realize they got up for nothing and could have had another hour in bed.

There will be a lot of swearing involved

Thankfully they hate that band but the artist they were excited about was Nikki Minaj. I listened to about 15 seconds of that and thought it wascompletetrash! Where is the hard rock category? Oh wait Jethro Tull would just win it anyhow.That was a throwback to the first year they started that award when Metallica was a sure thing and Jethro Tull won it.

Ya know...I know its just an hour, but I really need to get to sleep. This is going to have me tossing in bed checking the clock and ultimately trod to the comp with one eye open and refreshing this page. Ya know...technically midnight is the 23rd! Just saying' guys.

All this waiting is not doing me any good - I have consumed about 20 gallons of tea and 20lbs of chocolate.

And with the additional hour added that means more tea and more chocolate......

Didn't Jethro Tull breakup recently?

We'd be less than an hour away if the countdown didn't change.
