Ah the Oscars!


As the daughter of a Hollywood glamour obsessed momma, I’ve been watching the Oscars since birth. It’s a religion. Plunking yourself in front of the TV starting around noon and not moving until the credits roll hours later makes perfect sense to me. Therefore I am the world’s most revered, learned, brilliant authority when it comes to the Academy Awards. 

Yes Angelina’s leg (and skinniness) was bizarre. Sure, Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth’s thing felt way off (maybe she needed her garden pizza oven as a prop). I’m not sure if Rooney Mara possesses a soul or if she’s some real-life Star Trek type alien thing come to probe us all. What I do know is that becoming a thief and stealing this is something I’m seriously contemplating:


… the outfit, not the person. I also know it made me smile when Billy Crystal said this:

"Tonight, enjoy yourselves, because nothing can take the sting out of the world’s economic problems like watching millionaires present each other with golden statues."

That gets the Bureaucracy for Breakfast official and very important seal of approval! Anyhoo, if you do hear of this coral Louis Vuitton dress being mysteriously stolen please don’t tell anyone and just know that I am most likely hiding out in Mexico and wearing it to the local dive bars with pride!
