(no subject)

Could I have picked a better time to come down with a dry, dry, scratchy, dry throat? I feel something coming on, but it won't hurry up and get on with it.

Anyhoo, Oscars: I've decided not to blog live this year (even as live event blogging is becoming more and more popular), woe. I just notice that I miss tons of stuff when I'm too busy typing what happened three seconds before. And since I never thought the glorious day that they would let Jon Stewart host would ever come, I kind of want to pay attention to this year's show in particular.

Also, my mom is busting her ass to get dinner ready and eaten before the Oscars. I think this is the first year (well, the first year since her cousin was nominated as a set decorator on The Fisher King) that my family has taken the show (half) as seriously as I do. I suspect this is in no small part because my mother now has a doomed, oh-so-doomed horse in the races: Pride and Prejudice in general, and Miss Keira in particular. We who know that Reese Witherspoon will not let you win the pool salute you, Mom.
