I’m still a bit spent from my little tirade yesterday, as I am not accustomed to ranting (at least not in a somewhat public forum). Kevin was in the process of hanging a brand-spankin’-new American flag outside, and by the time he was finished 5 minutes later, I had hammered out my quiet and diminuitive opinion. Do you see now why I keep that to an absolute minimum? It did make me realize, however, that my thought processes are much more coherent when I sit at the keyboard pounding away without a thought in the world to syntax, which was a refreshing revelation. Apparently, I’m also more prone to verbosity when I have a day off. Hmmmm.
Since it’s Monday (and I can no longer think, therefore forgive the imminent rambling), and I have not (blessedly) watched the news today, I thought I’d take a moment, climb on my soapbox, and comment on the Oscars last night. Now, I watch the Oscars every year, even when I’m not particularly interested. It’s a tradition. I’m big on traditions. I have to confess, though: Last night I kept muting the TV. I did manage to catch Michael Moore, though, and while his little speech was not surprising (come on, it’s Michael Moore!!!), I was relatively shocked, nee impressed, with the audience’s response. Kurt Loder summed it up best here. Adrian Brody was very moving, and managed to convey the thoughts of most Americans while touching the hearts of everyone watching. I think I’ll go rent Liberty Heights
Finally, it just wouldn’t be me if I didn’t acknowledge Eminem’s big win. Sure, we all thought “I Move On” from Chicago was the shoe-in, “Father & Daughter” from The Wild Thornberrys Movie was the most touching (and who doesn’t love Paul Simon?), but my boy Eminem stole the show with “Lose Yourself”. Yes, I know I’m an approaching-middle-aged-wanna-be-soccer-mom, but I can’t help myself. I LOVE Eminem. What’s worse is that I can listen to Eminem and Yo-Yo Ma back to back. He he he. I’m a Gemini, what did you expect?
Lose Yourself

    I found it interesting that Moore said, “How bad off are you when…blah,blah,blah”

    OK. Now seriously, Mr. Moore, I ask ya: “How bad off do you have to be when you get booed in Hollywood for being too wacked out?”

    I was excited when Eminem won too! I thought of you. I almost sent you a “congratulations” email!!!
