vain: \?v?n\ adjective
I love when I’m given new projects to work on, especially when it’s something I didn’t originally seek out to do! This new project is somewhat a secret, but the only hint I’ll give is the definition above and my previous blog post, “Social Networking Delusions of Grandeur”. It’s always interesting to find out who’s reading and taking notes of damn near everything I write (minus the chick who can’t keep me off of her mind), but when they pop out of nowhere and make an offer that’s too hard to pass up, you appreciate their ‘silent observing’.
For now, mum’s the word, but as I get closer to the ‘launch’ date, well, you’ll definitely figure out what’s being launched.

(insert Oscar talk segue..lol)
Last night, the Oscars were on and I must say that it was one of the most entertaining and well written ones I’ve seen in a long time! Honestly, the only reason I watched was because of Hugh Jackman. After seeing him host the Tony’s I knew that it would definitely have some interesting factors added to it.
Of course most people knew early on this year that “Slum Dog Millionaire” would take home the most awards, so that really wasn’t much of a surprise, but I must say I was a bit disappointed that Mickey Rourke did not win Best Actor. Although I did see “Milk” and Sean Penn gave a good performance in it, I definitely thought to see Rourke after all of these years have such a breakthrough performance, that it was definitely Oscar-worthy. One thing about Sean Penn, that I will always be jealous of, is the fact that he got to lock-lips with James Franco!
Here are a few of my random Oscar Observations:
Sophia Loren? Why was she so orange?
Will Smith? Why was his hair so greasey & shiney? Dax hair grease much?
Alicia Keys? Who told her to wear Beyonce’s lace front wig & she must have been with Sophia Loren when she got her orange glow tan
Queen Latifah? Her ‘trainer’ is one lucky woman. What ‘trainer’ do you know actually gets to join her ‘trainee’ at the Oscars? One of these day’s she’ll happilyopen the closet door to walk out. Maybe Sean Penn’s speech hit home with her! Also, who advised Latifah to go dressed as a blue present? I’m not even going to comment on the singing. Way too easy.
Mickey Rourke? Yes, I realize his dog Loki died, but why would anyone wear their dog’s hair as a weave?? I mean, that was dog hair on his head right, because the weave was just that bad looking.
Jennifer Aniston? Why did she decide to let a 12 yr old do her hair? WTF was going on with that braid?? Now do you see why Brad is with Ange??
Tilda Swinson? Is she a he? or she? or just a very pale ghost?
Whoopi Goldberg? Was channelling her inner Cheetara when she decided to wear leopard. Thundercats HO!
Sarah Jessica Parker? Since when is looking like the man from “Mask” a good thing?
John Legend? Why do you remind me of my glow worm I had when I was a kid?
