Oscar whiners

Best actress: last week she hit her head and only a bag of ice would make her happy

An hour after this, all the snow was gone due to the heat wave
A new home for the fat lady: in our main hallway leading to the kitchen. I asked for the Moms' input: too small for the living room (only 10x14).  Too cool to be hidden away in one of the bedrooms though one mom found it to be disturbing. Steve thought down in the basement. This work is unsigned and there are no clues on its back I tried to Google-image: stylized nude fat lady tile but came up only with porn

OMG! Would Chris Rock shut-up already about the lack of diversity in this year's Oscars. They hired him..they hired an African-American music director. What we noticed is that American performers seemed to be a minority especially with the Aussie film grabbing the lion's share of the awards. Anyway, Chris Rock was not the least bit funny. He was very annoying and boring.
The Moms all came over to watch the Red Carpet and the Oscars while we snacked and drank wine. We wanted to see dresses, not hear boring life stories. Prettiest dress by far was Cate Blanchett's turquoise feathery number. As for the awards themselves, watching the film clips was fun; listening to Chris Rock was not. Even the commercials were better than him especially the Kohl's commercials with individuals giving Oscar -like acceptance speeches such as the 8 year girl who finally was allowed to sit in the front seat of the car.
When was the last time I saw a movie in a theater? Argo 3 years ago? I did see The Martian and Spotlight on the plane to and from San Francisco. And Spotlight won. Yay. I thought it was well done about the power of the press to deal with the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church.
We thought the cameo of the Grizzly bear from The Revenant was funny. What movies do I want to see now? Room and The Danish Girl. I assume The Revenant is great but too violent for me to stomach.
Well past midnight before I went to bed and then up at the first hint of light. Again it is very windy. Steve is angry because one of the guests didn't latch our front door completely and it blew open wrecking the frame and breaking off the door stopper. He thought I should be monitoring the door all night anticipating this.

The Oscars, like the movies, passed me by.
Love your nude woman - and would happily put her up in my bathroom. She might even make me feel better about myself.
Sigh on the door and the Steve front.
