Mood: Foul

Foul, foul, foul! I am beyond cranky today. And not just because my Oscar predictions were way off base (although they were; see below). I can't explain my foul mood. I had a great day yesterday. Although I could have done without the third degree from my mother on why I was going to grad school and why I chose anthropology and why I picked the three schools that I applied to. The question I have: Why do I keep having these conversations with my mother? Why can't I stand up to her to say, "I'm an adult. I've made my decision. You can support it or not. But I don't need to justify it to you and I don't need your approval." Why?

At least I have Oscar fug to look forward to. And, wow, the fug came out to play last night! Sandra, Amy, Michelle, Charlize---I'm talking to you. Pick yourself up a copy of the new People Style magazine. The one with Reese on the cover. Because Reese? Always looks fabulous.

So sorry you're feeling yuck. Did you go to Staple, and if so, how was it?

Sorry about your mom. I have the same problem with my own, so I know what you mean. I hope it doesn't make you feel like you've made a bad decision.

Whew, I know what you mean about the fug!

I went to MSN and looked at their pics of the stars, and am thinking about doing a commentary on them a little later.

Three words: Helena Bonham Carter.

Wow.

I skipped Staple. I got up on Saturday much later than I wanted to---mostly because I got up much earlier than I wanted to the first time. The first time was at about quarter to five and to the sounds of Rowen vomitting. All over the carpet. Thanks, Rowen. By the time I got that all cleaned up---because, naturally, she vomitted multiple times and in a different place each time---it was almost six. So I started my day later and everything got scrunched together and a few things had to not happen. Staple was one of those things.

I didn't watch it, but I would've LOVED to hear Catherine Zeta-Jones or someone equally elegant say, "And the Oscar goes to... 'It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp' by Hustle & Flow!"
