Bag of Randomness

  • As a teenager I was in love with Kathy Ireland, but after her Oscar preshow performance I’m erasing her from my memory.
  • I’m not sure why Neal Patrick Harris opened up the Oscars.  I kept waiting for some kind of connection, all I can think of is unpredictability.  But Baldwin and Martin hit it out of the park.
  • There were lots of comments about Sandra Bullock and a face lift.  I have to admit, I’m really bad at spotting those things.  Either way, she had nice hair.
  • I noticed that the Oscars broadcasted the sound a bit different, in particular when anyone on stage spoke.  It was a real auditorium effect.
  • I really liked how Best Screenplay was presented this year, with the scene being played with a the script scrolling with the action and dialog.
  • I never heard of The Messenger but now I really would like to see it.
  • I wasn’t expecting a John Hughes tribute, but really enjoyed it.  The mic was left on longer than it should had and you can hear Matthew Broderick in conversation with someone, did anyone catch the dialog?
  • A year ago if someone told me that Mo’Nique would win an Academy Award and give an eloquent speech I would have told that person that he or she is nuts.
  • It’s delightful watching actors get moved watching clips of themselves acting (Yes, you Maggie Gyllenhaal).
  • Anyone catch that weird Whoopi Goldberg commercial?  Just weird.
  • Saturday Night Live had a skit in which they had someone play Baby Jessica.  Call it a hunch, but I have a feeling their target audience was left scratching their heads.  At least I think their target audience is teenagers, college kids, and young adults.
  • Unbeknown to me, WifeGeeding has never eaten at Mama’s Daughters, so I took her to the Lewisville location for Saturday brunch.  Heck, to be honest, I only thought there was one location, the one on Harry Hines.  But we were lucky enough to meet the actual Mama, also known as Norma.  We had a nice conversation with her, as she told us some interesting information when she started the restaurant over 50 years ago.  Lunch cost about $0.40 and her rent for the building was only $50.
  • The Lewisville location is across the street from that Gourmet Donuts and Water place.  That place had such a goofy name that I just had to take a picture.
  • Toyota Simulator – The developer message in the upper left hand corner made me laugh.
  • Mila Kunis has been dating Macaulay Culkin since 2002?!?
  • Blood from Vancouver Games athletes will be kept until 2018
  • Elk River, Minnesota is a very friendly city
  • Spiderman visits the Wailing Wall
  • Not so healthy soup from Campbell’s
  • A few details on how Volton Girl’s costume was made
  • Trailer for Every Oscar-Winning Movie Ever – YouTube
  • Bacon Rocket – YouTube

    That is a cool way to present the best screenplay nominees. They did it that way last year.

    There used to be a Mama's Daughters Diner in Mesquite. We went a few times and really liked it. Next thing we knew, they had sold it and it had become a Mexican restaurant. Shortly after that, it burned to the ground. I haven't driven by in a long time, so I don't know if they ever did anything else after they bulldozed it.

    I was in love with Angie Everhart, then I read she dated Joe Pesci and I was done.
