We have another snow day. We haven't even been plowed yet and it's 8:44am as I type this.
We had 2 cancellations call us last night because snow was on it's way today.
I heard my hometown has hit the magic 124 inches this year in snow. So it could be worse I suppose. It just doesn't feel that way right now.
Okay to my Joan Rivers imitation.....
The Oscars 2014.
You see I never saw Dallas Buyers Club because I have great disdain for Matthew McConaughey.
I just didn't think I could get past the creep factor to get into the movie in the correct way so I didn't go. Apparently he was good because he won the Best Actor Oscar.
Or was it that he just lost the most weight so they gave him the statue?
Hollywood seems to do that. If a woman gains a boat load of weight and looks normal they give her an Oscar too. Funny really.
But last night while listening to his acceptance speech it made me dislike him even more if that is humanly possible. I can't even watch the True Detective series on HBO because he's in it. And I love Woody Harrelson. Rick says its good but he too dislikes M.M. and wishes someone else was playing that role.
The white dinner jackets tuxedo coats......
They remind me of a game I used to play as a little girl. It was called Mystery Date.
The so called "winner" was a young man dressed in the white tux jacket.
That is all I could see when I saw those men in those jackets, well and waiters.
For you young 'ens it was a game by Milton Bradley in the '60s. As a little girl I always liked the other guys better than the tux guy but I wasn't supposed to. I've always been a little left of center I guess.
I thought that Lupita Nyong'o acceptance speech was perfect. Her dress perfection!
I wish more would take a cue from her. Gratitude and class. Of course my husband had to ruin it by shouting, "Where are her breasts?" Idiot.
Jared Leto's was interesting and while I don't think those in the Ukraine or Venezuela were actually watching I thought the sentiment was nice.
Cate Blanchett - she disappointed me. I'm still reeling from it. I need a moment.
Steve McQeen - I loved the jump of joy!! It felt real and honest and it was great.
Pink was fabulous. I love that girl. There is nothing she can't do.
Pharrell, who I never knew until the Grammy's, wore another Dudley Do-Right hat only in black. I love his song Happy. I never knew that was him and honestly when I heard it the first time I thought it was Bruno. I know, old Margaret showing her age again.
Bette, well was Bette. Her voice is like butta.
Idina Menzel was as always wonderful. That song is stuck in my head and all the little girls of America.
I thought Ellen did alright. I didn't like the pizza shtick after awhile I thought it got old.
I love the selfies.
But she made it more light hearted and moved along fairly quickly.
I admit that this is when twitter is fun. OMG the funny comments from some of the comedians I follow were a hoot. That kept me very entertained, more so than the actual show.
Kathleen Madigan kept referring to someone running out there to give Liza a bra and I hadn't seen her yet. I must have been on a different pre Oscar show but it made me change channels because Kathleen was making me crack up.
I also will admit this year I didn't see a lot of the movies.
12 years a slave was a book that I found difficult to read.
Is it white guilt as they say?
In fact I stopped and had a friend tell me it was going to be alright for this man.
I just know that if that pain came through a book I could never watch it play out.
It angered me so. It pained me to my very core.
I knew I would never see a movie about this.
You see I watch movies like this in the past and I crumble. It lives with me for a very very long time. I couldn't. I'm a wuss. Maybe that is why I like comedies so much.
My husband tells me that those things need to happen to a person like a bigot or white supremacist. But it doesn't happen that way and he always wonders why.
I don't understand why, but I just can't watch that kind human suffering at the hands of another human. I have a difficult time with watching any injustice to humans and animals.
I'm a big fat wuss.
Back to reality now - This Wuss is off to shovel some more.
