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
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: Almost as much as that that film editor on stage. I mean….So Hot :)
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!
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.

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)
