Still Getting My Ass Kicked

By work. Ay dios mio! I'm so used to doing the bare minimum working at my own pace that to have to sort out this complicated mess I mentioned yesterday, whilst working to a deadline, is well and truly kicking my ass. Boring, right? I know.

On the upside one of my team mates here at work just left on a bakery run. Mmmmmmm, fat.

So what else do I have to tell you? Let me see...

Still obsessed with So You Think You Can Dance: Australia, even though I stopped blogging about it. (Until now, I guess.) All I can say, the judges got it wrong last night. Rhiannon and JD should have gone home.

I watched the Oscars last night. I thought the telecast was a little flat. Jon Stewart was very funny, but the audio was a little weird in parts. You couldn't hear the announcements of who was presenting each award, for instance. But one word for Katherine Heigl:



The word is GORGEOUS.

I made risotto for dinner last night, and I made enough for two meals. Then of course it was so good I ended up scarfing down most of it. I'm a pig. A pig who's also a good cook, that is.

My boss has the radio playing in his office, and right now it's playing Celine Friggin' Dion. [hate]

I wish she'd hurry with those pastries.

I loved all the red dresses! Especially Anne Hathaway and Helen Mirren. Beautiful.

I agree! And can I just say, every time I see Anne Hathaway interviewed I always think that she seems like she's a genuinely nice person.

Ugh, the show was sooooo boring! But a number of pretty ladies, and some even looked relatively natural. Oh, and Julie Christie, fabulous! And Javier Bardim and Daniel Day-Lewis are F-I-N-E!

I must admit I did do a bit of channel surfing during the telecast, which normally I would NEVER DO. Speaking of fine, Patrick Dempsey.

I love the way that dress fits at the bust, but that shoulder is freakin odd. It's like the top is a fanny pack, and the shoulder is the buckle holding the belt on.

I made risotto last night too! Karmic connections! Awesome!

The Other Andrew said...

Wes, I kind of like the shoulder detail. It's unusual but it's well fitted to sit right on the point of the shoulder like that.

Peener, twins! Cook off?

I have to disagree with you Andrew... Jon Stewart was the exact opposite of funny... in fact, the whole thing was the opposite of funny...

Plus, we don't care about how funny they all think they are, we only want to know who won what, so just announce the damn awards already.

I watched maybe 20 minutes tops and couldn't stand any more of it.

I agree that the Heigel creature's dress is tres chic... but the one word is "Posture"... she needs some...

The Other Andrew said...

Some of the Jon Stewart stuff I thought was very funny! It was kind of juvenile but I laughed out loud at some of the political stuff. Gaydolf Titler! Snerk.

The bit about the only time you see a black or woman president is when a meteor is about the blow up the Statue of Liberty was a bit funny... but I just don't like him.

And I turned the sound off on the two losers who were "pretending" to be Halle Berry and Dame Judy... not funny...
