Much like Super Bowl Sunday, I have all the snacks ready for the big Couch-Potato night. Chips, cookies, taco dip etc.
The Oscars are one of the few things that Auntie and I do together that doesn't end in a bit of a squabble. I suppose because of the stress of caregiving together, we can sometimes take out frustrations on each other. But not tonight! Tonight is all about junk food and some foolishness.
You see, we turn into catty, mean 13 year old girls once the red carpet show starts. Just wait until someone struts out in some really ugly dress. Remember years past - the credit card dress, Bjorks swan dress, Lara Flynn Boyle's pink tutu, and the year Drew Barrymore forgot to wear a bra ??
Oh then the claws come out. And god forbid someone wins who we don't like.......Look out!!! It worse than being at a hockey rink when the referee misses a penalty call.
And don't even get me started when some shmuck who we have never heard of goes on waaayyyy to long with their acceptance speech. Seriously....do you need to thank the guy who put the extra sprinkles on your ice cream cone when you were 5......??
