Just as I watch only one football game each year, I only watch one Awards Show. Since BA and TJ throw a great party for the Oscars, the choice is obvious. Before the show, I realized that I've continued my trend of seeing fewer and fewer nominated movies before the awards are handed out. My guesses about who would win were not terribly accurate. Still, I won a couple prizes for correct guesses, ate a bunch of tasty food, met BA's new cat, and had a fabulous time.
The rest of the day went pretty well, but I was sleepy. Fatigued. oh_that_jocelyn
and her mother arrived late last night. Their plane was ahead of schedule, but their luggage was some of the last to show up at baggage claim, so we didn't get back here until after midnight. Then it was like a slumber party where everyone's really tired, but still having too much fun to go to sleep. Finally got everyone settled down, but late late late. Fortunately, today was spent mostly playing cards. We'd play a few rounds of the Three Deck Game, then have something to eat. Then play some more. Then a break, and a snack. The more cards. That lasted almost all day, until it was time for them to go to Oregon City and me to go to the Oscar party.
I really like that oh_that_jocelyn
and I can have fun hanging out together. I know I've commented on this before, but we make each other laugh all the time, and our history holds a plethora of inside jokes, funny stories and silly games. I feel really lucky that when we visit, all that comes back so easily, and we have a blast. It was a fun day. But now I'm really
tired, so I'm going to bed. Current Mood: sleepy
