Oscar Wrap-Up

OK, I had to go back to the dark dots. Everything else sucked.

I didn't do so well in my Oscar picks - but then again, there were some surprises. I think if I had liked The Departed better, I might have picked it for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture, but that still would have only brought me up to 15, and I wouldn't have changed any of my other picks. Chargenda got 16, which means that he whupped my ass for the fifth year in a row - can I buy you dinner this weekend, Char?

But here's the scoop on the rest of my Oscar night. Since I got my big job promotion, I've been making a conscious effort to not talk about work, just in case anyone I work with comes across ol' naivehelga. However, in the case of OSCAR NIGHT AMERICA, I have to share some stories and pictures. We were the Michigan location for Oscar Night America, an officially-sanctioned Oscar party. Somewhere along the way, my boss thought it would be a good idea to have someone act as the fashion police - and since I'm such a gifted actress, he asked me to do it. OK, he forced me to do it. How can you say no when your boss asks you to do something so crazy? So. I was the fashion police. As you can see, I wore a "cop"uniform. I sort of look like a mechanic, or perhaps a bus driver, but that's cool. People loved me. By the end of the night, people were coming up to me asking me to write their friends tickets for fashion violations. And I hung out with the real cops, which was super fun. They thought I was hilarious. They're my new best friends.

I can't explain how hot you look in that "police" uniform. Sounds like you had fun! I just finally finished getting through the Oscars on DVR since I was in the air when it was aired. Miss you!

Um, Suzy the Mailman, much? I love it.
2 things:
If you're buying Chargenda dinner this weekend, does that mean you'll be in CHI this weekend?!?!?!?

Remember the audition I took when I stayed with you in Ann Arbor? I got it! They took 20 out of 300. Wheeee! 2 weeks in LA!

Chargenda said...

I actually think you beat me like 4 years ago. Yes, you can buy me din din! Can't wait to see you and catch up this weekend! Woo hoo!

And my word verification was zznddyk, which is sort of what you looked like in that photo...

Ashlee: you had better call us when you're out here. What was the audition?

Meggie Justine said...

Ugh, I miss your influence upon me. I'm boring. I need to tell you about Boston. Call me next week, after my weekend from hell this Sunday and Monday? We will chat? Have fun in Chicago, if that's where you're going!
LOVE

BTW, I got 16 out of the big 24 categories right, netting me $41 dollars in winnings. I am Dennis Hopper hittin' the nitrous tank right now.

Chargenda said...

I had 16, too. Go us!
