Oscar Night

Wow the 80th Academy Awards...John Stewart hosts.
OK so not my favorite, kind of boring. I liked the 79 previous Best Picture montage, but that was about it.
We started having Oscar parties back in 1994 where we would have a different food that represented each nominated movie and we would have ballots and the winner would get a "prize".
When Babe was nominated we had pork chops...I know kind of mean, but they were good!
Forrest Gump--See's chocolates
Pulp Fiction-- the best milkshakes ever
Shawshank Redemption--loose meat sandwiches that resembled prison food
Lately my family hasn't been as enthusiastic as I am. So we didn't do the party this year. The girls and I watched (even though they wanted to watch "She's the Man" instead) and Doug and Kian were upstairs doing what "guys" do.
I was sad that Johnny Depp didn't win of course.
I was glad that Ellen Page didn't win (too early to win).
I loved Helen Mirren's gorgeous red dress and Jennifer Gardner always looks great!
That was it really, no great moments.

I didn't watch the Oscars, so I can't comment on that. However, I would like to comment that I think you need to write another blog entry:). I'm sure Kian has done tons of cute things that need chronicling (is that possibly how you spell that word?).

Haha, since Lyndee found you snd linked you, I did too! Great blog! And I wanted to thank you for helping me at church a couple of weeks ago... It helped me a lot just to get a hug! Things are better now, and I just wanted to say thanks. Also, I may be a regular here, because you always make me laugh!
