Well, here it is Monday morning, the temps are a chilly 24 (F) and even though today is supposed to be sunny, we're only supposed to top off at around 31 (F). If you cup your hand tightly around you ear, you'll be able to hear conservatives shrieking how this proves there's no such thing as global warming... If you're near one when he does this, point to California, where temps are approaching the slow broil. Don't worry, that warm weather is coming east.
Lasagna? What lasagna. They ordered one large pan. They also ordered large pans of Chicken Alfredo, and baked ziti. Everyone ate the lasagna. By the time my lunch break rolled around, the lasagna was gone and there a spoonful of the chicken alfredo remaining and a the pan of baked ziti. This means that on one of my days off this week I'm going to need to bake myself a pan of lasagna.
Oh, and for those of you who didn't know, the Oscar ceremony was last night. I watched some of the show, about an hour. I liked that they got rid of the proscenium stage. Everything became much more personal including... They brought the hosts back... that was a mistake. Hosts were fine for a long time, then they became unnecessary. Wanda Sykes is a very funny woman, however her walk through the new Academy museum was painful to watch, the humor, like the hosts, was dated. I did like that they did a production number for "We Don't Talk About Bruno." How nice of them to recognize the most popular song which wasn't nominated for an award. And I wondered, as Rachel Ziegler came onstage to present an award, if she realizes she is now branded as difficult to work with? Relevance was packed away when they had Tommy Hawk (?), Shawn White (?), and some other sports figure introduce a series of Bond clips. Having 3 surviving Bond girls would have been a lot more interesting. Someone needs to tell Timothy Chalmette if he wants to wear a coat without a shirt, he needs to have a chest to go with it. And then, of course there was the SMACK, or the PUNCH, you know? The moment when Will Smith walked up on stage and hit Chris Rock. I missed that, having gone to bed. Let's be honest, though, so many, many of us want to hit Chris Rock. His jokes have always seemed bitter and angry. Rather than leave you with a video of that slap, I'll leave with a moment when the producers understand what entertainment is supposed to be.
