Favorite Show EVER

You know what redeems the most awkward post ever (see below)

THE ACADEMY AWARDS!!

Pretty much my favorite thing of the year, because it’s awesome. And by awesome I think that is the understatement, because like I said it’s my favorite event of the year.

And I think one of the best moments was me talking to LP about when I was going to call her, the convo went something like this:

me:  maybe I’ll call on the next Oscars commercial…
LP:  sounds good
me:  cause you know….stage effects
LP:  very important
me:  it’s a thrilling part of the show. Ooo, the mixers even better doesn’t everyone love a sound mixer
LP:  absolutely
me:  So, I want to marry a sound editor
LP:  haha, because you think that’s your best shot to go to the oscars?
me:  no i’m banking on my aunt for that
LP:  so you just think sound editors are sexy?
me:  yes
LP:  haha
me:  Almost as much as that that film editor on stage. I mean….So Hot :)
LP:  haha

I mean between the song and dance interludes (which included Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens), Queen Latifah singing the dead people montage, Hugh Jackman, the sound mixers, the fact that I am watching this on my 17 inch TV, I mean how in the world can it get better then that…

…oh wait, Kate Winslet or Anne Hathaway could win best Actress (in that order). Yep, that would be perfect.

*added post announcement: Kate Winslet…probably my favorite of the Hollywood A-List, and the fact that she shouted for her dad to “whistle or something” was awesome. And her speech was awesome and referenced Meryl Streep

**also I would like to point out that Kate Winslet, Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, and Amy Adams all had nominations this year, Wonderful!

A Political Letter of a Non-Political Nature

So today a friend of mine had a letter to the president as an away message. It was short, it made sense, and it had nothing to do with politics…just about how his transportation tends to wake her up at the wee hours of the morning. In return I wrote my own letter of grievances, and here is a more thought out version.

Dear Mr. President,
While we know I didn’t support you, I didn’t vote for you and I think the economic recovery bill is absurd and not a stimulus package, I, however do still love press conferences. I am nuts enough to watch daily press briefings…even though your guy isn’t as cool as Ari Fleischer or Tony Snow (and not as quirkily wonderful like Dana Perino). What I have a problem with is your timing on press conferences. Primetime television, especially on Monday Night, is reserved for crime dramas and Gossip Girl. Things that couldn’t happen since you decided had an 8pm press conference. That wasn’t cool. Serena and Blair aren’t happy, neither are the hundreds of thousands of early 20-something women who had to suffer a repeat episode. Don’t do it again.
xoxo, Me

Project Runway: Minute by almost Minute

**introduction: We have met the season 5 Project Runway designers and at this point it almost seems fruitless to learn all of their names. Because I mean there are a ton of them, all with quirky personalities. They met Heidi and Tim, and then after an evening of celebrating their making it to NY, Tim Gunn woke them up at 4am for their first challenge. Good Job Tim.

11:12 — Austin from the first season appears because, well, it is another Gristedes challange (and as Tim Gunn says, we’ve come full circle).  Austin takes flamboyant to a whole new level. I mean when he came skipping across the street in his little sailor outfit I may have almost fallen off the couch in shock. And then he just hopped to attention, I mean for serious, there was a ruffle around his neck.

11:13 — Boy with the short shorts. Okay, let’s be honest, I was still judging the shirt he was wearing in the intro sequence. But it appears the short shorts are his thing. [added post show: and in fact in the preview for net week he's in the shorts again, it appears to be his thing].

11:13 — To take a page out of the Gossip Girls handbook…omfg [the clean version], the girl with the visible, wear on the outside leather panties. She makes the short shorts boy look acceptable again, and all I want to say is…love if you can’t dress yourself, I think we have a problem…and she has horizontal red and white stripped tight pants/leggings underneath them

11:19 — Wackadoodle. Is that a real word?

11:19 — “To fusilli or not to fusilli” (Because apparently one designer is making an Italian themed dress)

11:20 — Oh snap…some gay animosity has hit the show already. One gay annoyed with another, and girlfriend, there may be a cat fight. All of the word “girlicious…or anything that ends in -icious.

11:25 — I swear they are a tad unoriginal, I mean the number of tablecloths. You were giving a task to got into a grocery store and use whatever they had to make an outfit, and half the group went with a tablecloth, that is not going to reflect well on you.

11:26 — HAHA, Tim Gunn just called out the lazy designers because of the tablecloths. Tsk tsk designers, Tim Gunn just called you unoriginal and lazy, which I also may have thought about one minute ago.

11:32 — Oh heavens, weird-clothing woman thinks she’s going to be eliminated and it’s all she can talk about…this happens to be something we agree on, probably the only thing we’d agree on…cause let’s be honest, she picked the trash bags that she not claims she can’t work with. Cause she picked trash bags that are too thin. The other designers are trying to make her feel better and be encouraging, they haven’t hit the point of hating each other.

11:34 — An outfit was just compared to American Psycho…I think it looks like a cross between that and a designer plumber. But a cute one, not like one of those scary plumbers that bend over and give you an eye full that you pray to God you’ll never see again. Nope, this one looks like a designer plumber that would kill you while you showered.

11:44 — Models are walking, everyone is happy with their final outfit, and they all think (and vocalize) that the judges will be impressed because their outfit is the best. Some of them are wrong, how the mighty will fall. I could be a judge.

11:49 — the top 3 and bottom 3 models are have been selected. The cocktail dress out of cups…FANTASTIC (good job Daniel), and the table cloth dress with the kale, bell peppers and cherry tomatoes, that is the most incredible thing I’ve seen…I mean yes the table cloth isn’t impressive, but whoa did her model look amazing. And then the girl that dyed her own vacuum bags and burned coffee filters…the skirt on her outfit looked great.

11:47 — American Psycho dress….Heidi just compared it to a Plumber, can I say I told him so. Because seriously, the model has rubber boots and yellow dish-washing rubber gloves (which I’m pretty sure he tied around her wrists).

11:50 — Blaine (Girlicious boy who was finished first and thought his outfit was the greatest thing since sliced bread)… well oh snap (maybe even a triple snap), Heidi just called it Playboy bunny gone grunge…so much for him thinking he was the best thing on the runway…I mean I could have told him it wasn’t working, he’s now in the bottom three, so sorry Blaine.

11:52 — yep, American Psycho…it came up again. Micheal Kors compared it to a slasher movie…he’s so gone (or it could be the crazy dresser with the “draped trash bag dress”)

11:57 — Kelly (girl with the vacuum bag dress) won the challenge, which makes me happy cause it was great.  Daniel was in second with the cup dress…which like I said before was amazing.

11:58 — Will it be Jerry (American Psycho) or Stella (trash bag dress)….oooo, it was American Psycho! I mean come on, he made a cape like rain coat and put rubber gloves on his model, but according to him, “I’m a true designer, I make beautiful clothes” (Just not good enough right now).

random monday night thought

I maybe want to be in an episode of Jon and Kate + 8.

Really, I want to be them…minus the six kids at one time. And like I told someone, if some nice man comes along I’d be willing to marry him and start popping out little bundles of joy. On that creepy statement, I think the reason I really thought this tonight was cause they spent a whole episode talking about peanut butter, natural marshmallow fluff, and going to church. (All things I love) :)

**Also, thanks to the commenters today (yes, the car thing is bad…and for the other commenter: swearing off guys…it’s more of a mental thing then an actual, i.e. I generally only make it work for 3 days at a time, but it’s getting better…kind of)
