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.
Carly Simon, “You’re So Vain”.

(insert Oscar talk
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.
Michael Yada/A.M.P.A.S.

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?

    I used to love my glow worm…. Maybe that’s why I’m so into J Legend!!!!

      LOL! I am so not into him. All of his songs sound the same to me. He just changes up the tempo..from fast to slow..

    Mum’s the word? NOoo – I wanna hear.
    Anyway, LOVED the wrap up of the Oscars – lol. And yes, Sophia Loren was a mess. Joy Behar said she looked like lemon meringue pie. I fell OVER in my chair.

    Okay Girl! You summed up all these looks so perfectly! Um, I almost fell out of my seat when I saw Sophia! Orange was just what I thought!
    I had to come right up to my flat screen to look at Alicia’s hair! SHe has a head ful, why does she need to rock that hot mess mop?
    SJP… on the fence. The Mask comment Hilarious.
    Queen’s dress she arrived in was much, much better (she repped for us Curvy Fahionistas on the red carpet) just not during that dedication.
    Jen Aniston- why are you here?
    Keep it up girl! I loved your recap! You said a lot that I could only tweet about… lol

      I don’t know what Sophia was thinking! I’ve never seen her look so fluorescent before! I’ve never been a fan of SJP, and I don’t see where her ‘prettiness’ starts or ends..I guess she’s an oxymoron…lol

    Missed the oscars, for some reason I dont keep the date on award shows, I usually see them by chance not because I knew ahead of time that they were scheduled to be there,
    Um why is Queen latifah singing for dedications at all? and what was the dedication
    WTH with Alicia, since when do women who actually have a head full of long wavy hair wear a wig, and she usually looks so well smh
    Whoopi actually looks pregnant in that dress
    and I actually LMAO @ the John Legend comment

    Awww, why is everyone so hard on SJP?? I love that chick, there’s just something quirky and fun about her. She’s not your conventional beauty, but she’s not the Elephant Man! Geezum!…lol
    As for Alicia – she just keeps on getting more and more orange every time I see her!! The italian in her should make her more olive tinged, NOT orange. WTF?

    OMG… I was dying laughing at this post. I don’t watch award shows so it was pretty much the first time I’d seen these pics. I agree with your comment on John Legend.. I just don’t get why women like him so much. He sounds like a smoker with a sore throat to me *shrugs*

    LMAO @ glow worm! I’ll never be able to look at John Legend the same again!

    I have to totally agree with you on Jennifer Anistons Hair!!! LOL The truest statement I’ve heard today.

    Not that I didn’t think Sean Penn did a good job worthy of another Oscar, but I really was rooting for Mickey Rourke. I was disappointed he lost. I was happy with all the other major Oscar winners. I enjoyed the show. Hugh Jackman was great.

    Since 1950, the statuettes have been legally encumbered by the requirement that neither winners nor their heirs may sell the statuettes without first offering to sell them back to the Academy for US$1. If a winner refuses to agree to this stipulation, then the Academy keeps the statuette.caderea parului
