I had to change that Oscar Post. I would go mad if i only watched the Oscars. They are so boring. But live blogging always helps me get through it. I think next year I'll focus on the Golden Globes. It's always more fun with alcohol. And the Academy Awards take themselves wayyyyy to seriously.
Menu of the Day:
In my glass: 1/2 of a pint of IPA. Brian already drank the other half with his dinner. It's called Bitch something. Not bad, though I'm not an IPA drinker. But i didn't get home from work until after 7 pm and a beer sounds good.
Beer vs wine: For me one beer is always good for me. But i rarely ever want to turn down a second glass (or third) of wine. Which is why i try to keep the wine for the weekend. I actually sleep pretty good with a beer. But i never sleep good with wine.
The Best Thing that Happened this Week: I'm actually having to think about this one. It's not been a bad week, i just can't think of anything super cool right now. I'll come back to this.
What I'm procrastinating about: Probably what most of us are....TAXES. I need to try and get these done this weekend.
Funny thing about my husband: He is on this health kick lately. I sort of hate it when he gets into these phases. We have lots of food in the house now. But it's WEIRD food. And nothing good to eat. I don't care for figs and prunes and all these root vegetables. some i don't even recognize. And today he was putting his soaked overnight beans into a slow cooker and throwing all kinds of shit from the refrigerator into it for his soup, for which i don't think he had a recipe.
And as i watched he started throwing in the spring salad mix. "Uh....Brian, that's LETTUCE you are adding to your soup, not spinach!" I told him. "Well, it's all greens", he replied. (I did not eat that soup.)
The weirdest thing about the Oscars this year: How Angelina posed with her high slit dress, going to great lengths to show off her leg. I meant to make mention of it in my live blogging and didn't get around to it. Was she just messing with us?
Besides: her leg is too skinny anyway.
The Cutest thing about the Oscars: I liked the presentation by Emma Stone.
OH, i just remember the Best Thing This Week: Last night when i got off work i was able to run and finish a 50 minute run before it got too dark. That's the first time I've been able to do that. I don't have to run the condo circle for a dozen times, i can do my route and even go longer. Winter is waning away!
What's irritating me: This is for the locals who blog here. If you read The News Tribune there is the most obnoxious advertisement for crawl spaces in every gawddamn paper every damn day. It's got a big ugly rat in the photo that is designed to scare the beejeezus out of anyone who has to wonder what is living underneath their floors or in their attics now. Personally, having been in our crawl spaces (my husband, not me actually) many times in the past year we have no worries, nor have we ever. And i suspect most other folks don't either. But if you don't check them out, these ads could make you anxious. Amanda and louielouie will know what i'm talking about.
Notes to Self:

Popular blog post this week: "Velvet Sledgehammer - My New Favorite Wine and My New Favorite Commercial" from Oct. 15, 2011 got 167 page views this week. People must be looking for this wine through Google. (The commercial was that little girl driving the car and her Dad warning her. Only she's not really a little girl.)
So what's on your menu this week, y'all?
