So, we watched the Oscars from the sick bed last night. JH is still under it, though his fever is gone. He loved watching them last year, and it was funny to see the change in his attitude from one year to the next. His commentary is hysterical. Take this gem:
"Mom, why is her dress so hairy?"
Or this, after watching the nominated song from Enchanted ("So Close", see clip below), he shook his head and said "Man. Being a prince is hard work! If you're not lifting up the girls, you're twirling them around!"
Even though it was rather a record year for me, having seen Juno, Michael Clayton, Once, and of course Enchanted and Ratatouille, the highlight of the evening for me was that "Falling Slowly" won best song. And that Jon Stewart had the class to call Marketa out to make her speech.
On the fashion side, I loved Nicole's necklace, and thought Tilda Swinton's dress looked like a goth tablecloth, even though, I loved her acceptance speech.
Until next year, here's a little something sweet to tide you over:
