OH ME OF LITTLE FAITH!


How could I have been so wrong about the Academy Award production last night? Not only did the opening skits have me Laughing Out Loud, so did Billy Crystal, Kirk Douglas and a few other unexpected surprises!

The sets were fabulous, the music was great (maybe too little of it), and I thought they did a pretty good job keeping acceptance speeches to a minimum. Way to go, folks. This shows to go you what I know! I'm the first to admit I was wrong about the changes being too much, and offer kudos to everyone involved for a great show. I'm even deferring wardrobe critiques to professionals like Joan Rivers and her crew.

On another note, I had a terrific idea this morning that may redeem me. Let's take Charlie Sheen, Momar Kadafi and Bernie Madoff, and put them in the same locked room together for about twelve months. The room would be equipped with a small mountain of cocaine, an automatic weapon (with plenty of ammo), and every back issue of the Wall Street Journal from 2008 to present. Have any ideas of your own as to who or what we should include here? I'd love to hear it.

  1. Everything was lovely, wasn't it??? Even Helena Bonham Carter, whom I count on for creativity, was fairly sedate all in black. I love the idea (on a completely different tangent!) of locking those folks up together -- reality t.v. at its finest! Throw Silvio Berluschoni into the mix -- he and Charlie can trade tips for pickin' up chicks ....

  2. I missed the first 20 minutes, but totally enjoyed Billy and Kirk! I need to see The Kings Speech though, my family did and loved it.
    I love your idea of putting the three stooges in a cell together! And then being a fly on the wall to see the "antics"

  3. Thanks Ladies!

    YM, throwing Silvio B. into the room with Charlie, Momar and Bernie is an awesome idea. How could I have missed that opportunity? This fantasy stuff is fun.

    Laurie, yeah.. a fly on the wall or I was thinking about a two way mirror. Then I thought, why make it two way? Just open things up so to speak! p.s. the three stooges? LOL.. LOVING THAT, girlfriend! too funny...

  5. I want to read the victim vs volunteer post that's disappeared! I volunteer for everything and I always tell my husband, Dont let me volunteer anymore! I just feel used and taken advantage of when I leave! LOL

  6. Sheen is another one of those 'free publicity and sex obsessed' that drive me crazy! He had better enjoy it while it is in his budget, cause there is liable to be no budget very soon! With all those kids LOL

    A few of my friends used to say we were going to lock our moms up like that...tongue and cheek of course, the others deserve it more...

    Not sure how I felt about the awards show...I get tired of someone being introduced to introduce someone else...just sayin!
