Oscar Night 2012

Where to begin????
Let's start with dresses, ok?  Loved Loved Loved Olivia Spencer's dress.  It was beautiful.  She has championed the beautiful big woman with one awards season.  She has looked stunning every time I've seen her.
Melissa McCarthy should take a page from her friend's book.  That dress had such potential and then she had them put on those gigantic sleeves. Yuk!  I'm thinking she felt shy about having large arms.  Well, hon, you are a large girl and large arms go with the territory.  I think you should just embrace them and show them off.  You would have been gorgeous.
Jennifer Lopez, you are a goddess.  I don't care if you had a "nip slip" or not.  You are the highest standard in plunging necklines and knowing what looks good on you.
Angelina Jolie, no offense but you are too skinny to be a goddess. When you stuck that skinny little twig out there to show it off I almost choked on my champagne.  What in the heck was that?  Feeling a little left out this year?  Did you think the other girls looked better than you? Did you think the collective gasp was of awe and not disgust.  Well, sorry, honey. Keep your legs covered.  You always look lovely when they are covered up.
Meryl Streep, it is crap getting old, isn't it?  You are a great actress and award worthy but that dress was the ugliest thing!  Did you not look in the mirror? You looked like a statue and not a good one.  All that gathering in the middle wouldn't look good on a young woman with a perfect body let alone on a woman your age.  Shame on you.  At least you didn't wear black.
Glenn Close, I'm talking about you.  You are beautiful and have a wonderful body.  The whole tuxedo turned into a dress thing is kind of getting old but it would have worked if it didn't have that enormous outrageous pouf on the back and a train!  What were you thinking?  You could wear anything.  I'm figuring the tuxedo thing was a nod to your movie but Really, you couldn't do better than that?  Your dress had that real "maamsir" thing going on. Shame on you.
Men always look good.  Even that stupid Sasha Baron Cohen dressed like a martinet looked good.  Don't you just hate them?  Brad Pitt said it best...something about you just do the penguin thing and you're ready to go.  Since he was ready so early he should have had a word with the wife about the leg but I digress.
I'm hoping we've seen the last of that dog from The Artist.  I am sick of that thing.
As a Francophile, I should be thrilled about all the French winners but I have to admit I felt sorry for George Clooney(imagine that!) and Viola Davis.  I thought they both should win.
Speaking of Viola Davis, how gorgeous was she?  Yay for no wig.  SHE is beautiful just naturally.  She should never wear a wig again except for a role.  Did you hear me, hon?  No More WIGS!!! Loved the bright green dress too.  I wish Vera Wang would throw some color into her clothes for Kohls.  I thought she only did grey and lilac.
Most of the stars look beautiful now thanks to stylists.  Most of them looked glamourous and beautiful.  Even Miss Piggy had it going on!
So I can't really complain about the Oscars this year.  They are my favorite excuse to drink champagne!

What a Waste

The Super Pac ads have arrived.  They make disparaging claims against whoever and I'm sure they cost BIG BUCKS.
What a waste.  Have they not noticed that every candidate will sooner or later shoot himself in his own foot?   Or should I say "take one for the team?"  Yes, Ric Santorum, bang,bang, you shot yourself down.
Oh and Mitt Romney is doing the same thing.  He was stupid enough to tell the people in Detroit that his wife drives two count them two Cadillacs!  Beside his truck and car.  They drive American which is great but they have four cars in an economy where A LOT of people in Detroit and the surrounding areas don't have jobs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ron Paul said that Santorum was presented as a jerk because he is one.  Bye Bye, Ron.
And don't get me started on Newt.   Come on now every other time he opens his mouth he says something stupid.  He seems hell-bent on losing.
So SuperPacs stop wasting your time on advertisements.  Why don't you give all that cash to charity instead?

Good Bye to an Old Friend

The first one of my peers passed away this week.  I cannot express the shock and sadness I feel.  She had a full life, a husband who worshipped her, children and grandchildren but she was still taken too soon.
I remember her as a fun loving, risk taking, optimistic woman who always had a smile on her face.  She was intense and driven.
I haven't seen her in a really long time.  Really long.  But the sadness I feel is genuine for an old friend and a friendship that helped me through some tough times.
Our old group is down by one and I guess I thought that would never happen, well at least not for a long,long time.
So here's to old friends, past and present friends and friends we've yet to meet.
                                                         RIP Carlene.

Grammys 2012

Let's just say it's not fun getting older.  The Beach Boys are now the Beach Old Farts.  Paul McCartney looked like he was going to stand up and the young wife started to jump up with him to hold him up I'm guessing.  Poor Glenn Campbell has Alzheimer's disease.  Diana Ross isn't a skinny little stick anymore and Cyndi Lauper is a little long in the tooth for her unique style of clothes.
The Beach Boys made me downright sad.  I sure hope some of those kids like Chris Brown don't try to recreate their songs in 50 years.  They'll kill themselves!!
If you need any more evidence that I am right check out the pics below.

Too bad she wasn't waving goodbye.
