2013 ACADEMY AWARDS BEST AND WORST

My favorite time of the year!  Oscar Sunday.  Let's get started shall we?



Salma Hayek - PERFECTION.  Salma never, EVER disappoints.  She knows how to dress for her petite frame and always knocks it out of the park.  I love the gold headpiece in her hair, the gold neckline and beautiful black velvet with gold clutch.  Grade:  A+


Charlize Theron.  WHAT A BEAUTY!  The gown is perfection.  The hair is AMAZING.  Not many can pull off a pixie haircut like this.  You have to have a beautiful face and amazing bone structure.  Not much else to say when someone looks so absolutely gorgeous.  Grade:  A+

Jennifer Lawrence.  PERFECTION.  Loved this gown.  It almost looks like a very, very light pink but I believe it's white.  She pulled this off effortlessly.  Beautiful hair, makeup and jewelery.  You can't see it very well in the picture, but she wore a beautiful necklace that draped down her back.  Gorgeous.  Grade:  A+

What can I say, there were a lot of winners last night.

A re-run .... MILLENIAL CHILDREN AND OTHER CRETANS

The other day there was SHOCKING footage of a teacher spanking a five year old. OH.MY. GOD.  Dan and I saw this on the morning news.  We just looked at each other like WHAT THE HELL ... because we both remembered that when WE WERE KIDS the teacher couldbeat the shit outta you and so could your parents and NO ONE WAS SUED.  

That all changed during the 1980's.  Children born after 1980, also referred to as "millennial children."  You know, the ones that were pampered every freaking day of their lives and now walk into the workplace demanding free time, work/life balance, big bucks and the ability to work from home in their pajamas.  The problem with this is that they are working for baby boomer bosses whose work ethic and background is radically different.  I, being a baby boomer, understand this all too well.  Unfortunately, my experience in the last 10 years has been a little different because I've had to work for these millennial brats who never learned any…

A RE-RUN WHINE ...

I HATE bending over.  If I'm sitting in a chair and I drop my pen or anything that makes me have to bend over I'm all FUCK!!  Whenever I vacuum, which I did today, and the vacuum cleaner does not pick up a tiny piece of paper or a sliver of thread that I've passed the vacuum over ten times I will leave it there until the next time I vacuum.  And you know that that damn piece of paper or sliver of thread will remain on the carpet in the exact same location until I finally have to fucken bend over and pick it up.  However, if I happen to catch the edge of the bedspread with the vacuum it will suck up the entire bedspread.  WHY IS THAT?!  Or how come whenever I lose an earring or some other precious memento and it's fallen on the carpet and the only LOGICAL place on EARTH it could be is within a small diameter of space where I dropped it ... but somehow despite the rules of quantum physics, time and space, that fucken earring will have bounced from that spot on the carp…

I HATE bending over.  If I'm sitting in a chair and I drop my pen or anything that makes me have to bend over I'm all FUCK!!  Whenever I vacuum, which I did today, and the vacuum does not pick up a tiny piece of paper or a sliver of thread and I've passed the vacuum over it five times and it still does not pick it up, I will leave it there until the next time I vacuum.  And you know that that damn piece of paper or sliver of thread will remain on the carpet in the exact same location, until I finally have to fucken bend over and pick it up.  How come that never happens when I lose an earring?  How many times have I dropped an earring or some other precious memento on the carpet ... and the only LOGICAL place on EARTH it could be is within a small diameter of space, but somehow, despite the rules of quantum physics, time and space, that fucken earring will have bounced from the spot on the carpet and magically appear downstairs under the sink?  I HATE when that happens.
