The shopping has well and truly started with a frenzy, as the women (and if the rumours are true- men- or at the very least- man) of Bubhub gear up for their awards night just a mere 5 weeks away.
Theophania seems to be heading the charge on nabbing the perfect frock, but make no mistake, many other hubber regulars are not far behind.
RoarsomeMum is rumoured to be wearing a simple and understated black frock but is going to dress it up with some gorgeous jewellery reportedly worth tens of dollars. And to top it off, my sources are saying that she has been searching all over BH, looking for a 2009 thread all about a vagina purse. No doubt that ensemble will be hard to top.
Bron, a veteran of the BH awards has been seen lurking on eBay- not for the perfect dress at a fraction of the price (even if it has to come from Hong Kong and arrives two sizes too big, so you have to get it taken in at the last minute by a chain smoking small person named LuluBell). No, Bron is telling everyone who will listen that this year it's all about the gloves. "It's all about the gloves. After years of prolific posting on BH, (not to mention my stint as a moderator, I'm sure you all remember) my fingertips have worn away to stubs, and I need to get that covered so I will be looking fabulous for Tex."
Mischaswonderland and her date Arj Barker are currently working on a colour theme. The BH Bugle are the only publication who has exclusive rights to this photo, taken at MWL's make-up trial earlier today. Going green will no longer be a catch-cry for those trying to save the planet, but it will bring all new visions to mind of Arj and MWL at the Bubhub awards for 2009.
So far this year no moderators have staked a claim on dresses before any of the blues could make their move. We at the Bugle are unsure whether or not they are working as a team and are showing a united front in this area, or if it is just a coincidence. But, if history is anything to go by, if I were a blue member of BH planning on attending the awards, I would definitely be choosing a frock now, before all the hottest trends of the season are snaffled up by the pinks.

* Editors of the Bubhub Bugle wonder if the subtlety of some of their jokes are going over reader's heads. Examples of jokes it seems no one got are the "details sketchy" comment with a sketch of money, and the myriad of reporters names used so far.
