So, an update

Sister Girl will apparently be able to keep her finger, although she assures me it was "barely holding on." They gave her a digital block (apparently this is supposed to numb the entire finger?) but it... kind of didn't work, and she felt all four stitches. (They offered DermaBond as an alternative. That's right: they offered to glue my sister's finger back on.) The doctor (who, if he was an intern as she had feared, was the oldest one on record) asked if he should stop or try something else and she said, "NO JUST FINISH IT OKAY JUST FINISH IT I JUST WANT IT TO BE OVER." Then, they put a Band-Aid on her finger, which is really so useless that I feel like it must have been cosmetic, or maybe just to keep the stitches dry. She then entered an outpatient treatment program of Taco Bell and OxyContin, and will be off work a couple of days while she is painkillered up.

Meanwhile, I forgot to mention that there's a new Made of Fail podcast up with MarzGurl from That Guy With the Glasses. (Guys, am I supposed to be on the next one this month? I can't remember.)

Meanwhile-meanwhile, over at Formspring: 175 anonymous questions answered, 75 to go. It seems to be glitching, though, and won't show anything when you click "more." Maybe I'll copypaste the answers somewhere else periodically. They better come back, though, because that's like 150 answers lost if they don't.

Also, barring unforeseen circumstances, I will be liveblogging the Oscars tonight. My understanding is that, due to a TV affiliate dispute of some kind in New York, some channels will not be allowed to carry the Oscars. You will be able to watch them streaming live (in theory. Good luck with that) courtesy of the AP.

Ladies and gentlemen! This year's nominees for best actor and actress! Lined up on stage! Holy shit, Seacrest wasn't kidding about that American Idol-style shit. I am already starting to feel really embarrassed for--wow, Carey Mulligan has the most immense diamond earrings. WORK IT GABBY! WORK IT GIRL. Wow. That was hellishly awkward. NEIL PATRICK HARRIS! He is in a sparkling black tux jacket! Pin-striped sparkles. I AM DAZZLED. He is singing something and dancing down the steps! I have no idea what he is saying. There are sparkly-nude showgirls! Kristen Stewart laughs (I KNOW RIGHT) in the audience! A Busby Berkeley musical breaks out! I HAVE NO IDEA. 7:33, and already we've got a kick line.

Things can only, only, go downhill from here.

Please welcome! Cameron Diaz and Steve Carell! "When you're as beautiful as Cameron and I..." (Her dress looks great under the lights.) I can't tell if this is for real or as a joke, but she accidentally calls Steve "Jude," and Steve says that he stepped in at the last minute for Jude Law. Diaz has always been really nervous at these things, though. Best animated feature film! Collapse )

Steve Martin would like to welcome two beautiful actresses, "because we're so tired of bringing out these ugly actresses." Please welcome! Carey Mulligan and Zoe Saldana, wrestling with their trains! We see taped interviews with filmmakers who got their start with short films, and when the Academy takes notice of one, "it is the best calling card ever." Also: "You know what I like about short films? They're short." Collapse )

Please welcome! Michael Sheen, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Stanley Tucci, and and Peter Sarsgaard! Forest Whitaker is here for Sandra Bullock because--Hope Floats, right? Ah, yes. Some people miss the delicacy and complexity of her work, you guys. I love Sandra Bullock, but--I just. The Blind Side. I'll stop now. Collapse ) 


ETA: New Iron Man 2 trailer, hot off the truck.
