Does anyone give a shirt?
About the Oscars? It is a little like the recent Super Bowl. Sure, people in Pittsburg and that other city were excited, and you imagine the people nominated for Oscars were excited, but with only a couple of exceptions, this was, in the opinon of this blog, pretty dull stuff.
I have seen Slumdog. It is a great movie but also extremely difficult to watch. People say 'oh, its a love story, its about overcoming' but it is also about some of the most horrible things children can endure. And worse. I suppose it was the best of the bunch.
I can imagine Sean Penn earned his Oscar. Fair enough.
Heath Ledger, DEFINATELY, the poor guy...
and Penelope Cruz is super cute. I don't know anything about that movie, but in my mind, she wins based on her...you know.
In the category of 'who gives a shirt about Gary?' let's just say that it is 11 degrees outside and snowing, and I have gotten a mildly terrible cold. The slightly runny nose, the vaguely sore throat. I wanted to have some fun and go to the grocery store, and later entertain friends. I think I will hole up with the household heat turned high, my lamb's wool scarf tightly tied around my neck, and make little bunnies and such. Your sympathy is welcome.
(it has been several months of NO COLDS--my friends must be impressed)
