Little Golden Buddy

Oh how I LOVE Oscar time!!! Every year, I wait with baited breath for the nominees to be announced, then I do my own critique of said nominations, and then anxiously count down the days until show time.

The gowns, the speeches, the extremely-too-long telecast - all a sumptuous feast for my senses.

So, here's this year's list of nominees. And here is who I think should win, and who I think will win:


Should Win: "The Queen"
Will Win: "Babel"

Best Actor:

Should Win: Forest Whitaker
Will Win: Forest Whitaker, though I could be wrong and they could give Peter O'Toole the "sympathy Oscar"

Best Actress:

Should Win: Helen Mirren
Will Win: Helen Mirren

Best Supporting Actor:

Should Win: Alan Arkin
Will Win: Alan Arkin, although there could be an upset and they give it to Eddie Murphy

Best Supporting Actress:

Should Win: Jennifer Hudson
Will Win: Cate Blanchett

Best Director:

Should Win: Martin Scorsese
Will Win: Martin Scorsese (even if voters want to give it to Clint Eastwood, they'll give Marty the sympathy vote)

Do any of you like the Oscars? Will you be watching? Do you even care? Who are your picks? Share with me, people!!

That's how I feel right now. I'm just really uninspired and can't muster up the energy to whip up a post right now. I think alot of it has to do with my life right now. Everything is great, but there's also not alot happening, so therefore, there's nothing much to share. Sometimes, that can be a good thing. There are some things that are possibly in the works, but I really can't talk about them right now, until I have more information or the plans are finalized.

Anyway, just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here, and I'm checking out other blogs everyday, and will eventually have something meaningful or humerous to say. Thanks for checking in!

Straight Pimpin'

Do you like Electronic/Trance/Dance music? Know of anyone who does? Then check out my hubby's websites:



Even though I don't always like all of the songs/music he creates, I'm proud of him none the less. It's not easy being creative, and he puts his all into it. Anyway, just thought I'd brag on my man for a change!

Miss Me?

I have returned!!

The trip was extended by 2 days due to severe weather and illness. However, we had a great time, and it was really nice to see my husband's family.

Now, I have to play catch-up at home and work, so I'm still going to be out of the loop for awhile. Hopefully, by Sunday, everything will be back on track. I have several posts I'm working on (in my head), I just don't have the time to type them out yet. I spent last night catching up on everyone else's blog posts, and it looks like alot of exciting things went down in just a week (more on that later)!

Thanks for your patience, and I'll "talk" to you later!

...for all of the "get well" wishes. They must have worked, because I feel 100% better now. Just in time for my PMS to kick in.

New Year's was a nice, low-key event. My brother, SIL, her sister and husband, and Aimee were over and we ate good food, watched "Saw II" (not my idea-but I was out-voted) and played a rousing round of "Scene It" in which we were divided up into 3 teams of 2 and I was a team of 1. Why? Because I am The Shit at trivia games. So, of course I beat everyone for the win. Modest, aren't I? Hey, I have zero athletic ability, so I have do something to satisfy my overly-competitive nature.

Speaking of competitions, my beloved Sooners lost to Boise State by 1 point in OT at the Fiesta Bowl. It was one of the greatest football games I have ever watched. Boise State fought hard and they deserved their win-much as I am loathe to admit. It was well worth staying up after midnight for.

I suppose this really will be my last entry until my return from vacation on the 15th. I have so much to do this week, and no time to do it. I have lots to discuss, but you'll just have to be patient for a little while longer.

I hope you all had a safe, and Happy New Year!
