Live Blogging from the Oscars

  • Best dressed thus far: Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett and Jessica Alba.
  • I hate when actors try to act like political experts. How many of you have government degrees or ever actually look beyond your own self-interest?
  • Holy cow - Tilda Swanton won! For those of you saying "Tilda who?!", if you saw "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," she was the witch.
  • I wish I got to be a seat filler at the Oscars. I would want to pick my preferred seats. If they stuck me next to Jack Nicholson or someone else I don't like, I might start heckling them or doing really bad impressions of them.
  • I know Johnny Depp won't win, but I really wish he would. Everyone would flip out, and Johnny would finally get what he has deserved for so many years.
  • There's a lot of red dresses out there tonight.
  • George Clooney in a suit onstage = a good moment.
  • Becky says "No Country for Old Men" sucked, and I'm going to agree with her evaluation since we appear to have similar movie tastes.
  • No one cares what the Academy head has to say. No one really cares about the foreign items, either. Just keep it moving, people!!!

12 more minutes until I call it a night. . .

This day calls for a margarita ending.

We didn't have school today due to the highly disappointing ice storm. This storm was billed as an apocalyptic horror, and all it did was keep me from getting to the gym before 11 a.m. I will not complain, however, because it kept me home and let me go see a movie with Maggie and Ken.

Becky and I are going to hit up dinner downtown, and I believe margaritas will be involved. The rest of the weekend will be spent doing mundane things like working on my grad paper and buying groceries. No worries, though, because it all winds down with the Oscars on Sunday night. Oh yeah, I love me some Oscar coverage. My thoughts on the winners, losers, and all of their clothing choices on Monday night.

Skiing kicked my butt

BarleyFest '08 was fantabulous, complete with friends, skiing, video games and fun shots. We hit the slopes for almost six hours on Saturday with perfect conditions. Needless to say, the skiiers among us were hurting the next day. The pain was definitely worth it - what a blast!

Tim took me out to a new restaurant for lunch today, then he was off for a return to the Cape. The last few hours have been spent working on my grad research project, and my brain hurts to match the pain in my back and neck. It's going to be one of those long weeks. . .

I have a new obsession.

I discovered "Scrabulous" the other night and now all I want to do is play. First game versus Tim he beat me, but we will play again and I have to win at some point. If anyone wants to play me, bring it on!!!

And for those wh care about TV, here are the post-strike show details!!! Notice that Scrubs is coming back - yay!!!

I'm watching a rerun of "Scrubs" right now. . .

. . .and I can't help but wonder if we will ever know what happens to all of our favorite staff members at Sacred Heart. Stupid writers strike.

For Those of You Wondering How NE Feels Today. . .

. . .this article pretty much says it all. I'm sorry we lost, but we played in a manner that SHOULD have lost. Giants fans, savor the feeling - we were in your shoes 6 years ago and I just hope that in 6 years, the rest of the country doesn't hate you as much as they do us.

See guys, the Patriots ARE human.

Trust me, go see "Juno"

I went to a matinée this afternoon and loved every minute of it. "Juno" is definitely worth the hype it is receiving, and come Oscar time I think you will see it walk off with at least one little gold guy. The performances are dead-on, the story is wonderfully crafted, and the dialogue is witty while maintaining realism.

Go see it, already! You will be talking about it, too.

We came, we saw, we conquered

Two pairs of Gap dress pants for $17.89, originally $59.50 each. That is all I have to say.
