You know, I know I can tell you all of this because I know you are not conceited, swell-headed, and are kind, sensitive with a focus on balanced perspective except the times you are a creep, and that’s when you really get me.
I, also, like the way Marge Gunderson grew up to be Mildred. The theme music from, “Gladiator,” made me want to watch it again for about the tenth time. I’ll pass on, “The Shape of Water,” it doesn’t even look quite as good as, “The Creature From the Black Lagoon.” Creepy Classics. While I wouldn’t have worn Frances McDormand’s dress to a dogfight, I did love her non-compliance. That didn’t mean she didn’t support, as she said. Rude moments: Jennifer Lawrence telling Ms. Lumley her comments were a bit much; Rude, rude, rude, poor little forced to stand in a naked lineup lady. Ridley Scott saying he got the away only because they figured there was little time. And his totally boring read from index cards speech. But thank you Mr. Scott, for scaring the Bejesus out of me during, “Alien.” One of the best horror movies ever. A really fine director, completely fine, and I’m glad he was honored. I should point fingers are people who like to ramble and reminisce. The ladies in the directors booth had good sense to focus on the best one in the audience quite a few times; perhaps it was the pleasant genuineness.
Now, dear, in the post to follow this, and I really shouldn’t even be taking this little break because we have our annual memorial lecture and I am hitting the ground running, and another visitor (Brandi just told me I was the Jackie Kennedy of the office–I always make a good impression on our guests–this girl is very complimentary to me. Jackie Kennedy and Joan Collins, well, I don’t know–I still feel like the person who falls out of bed in the morning while dark, visits the convenience, looks in the mirror and goes, God! marveling at what a wreck I am; Mom would be proud.
But I digress. In the post to follow this one, it will be a confession of sorts at how sick I can be. Around 10 PM last night, searching the web on my phone for any post ceremony news, I visited Fox news sight and the link to this story caught my eye. You know this is one of my tickle spots–I read the article, and laughed until I cried. Then I made the mistake of reading the comments from the readers and could not stop laughing even when my sides ached. Before I knew it, it was nearly 11:30, I wiped my tears and went to bed. It occurred to me that this is such a unifying subject…perhaps Congress should take a page from this book! (I know, I am sick.)
