Knitting Through...


The Oscars

Last night was spent with my favorite Mom and Rozz at their home watching the Oscars and knitting...

Now, Rozzie is a huge Oscar's fan...

huge.

She gets very excited and emotional when we're watching (which is super fun, even though she only saw 2 of the movies that had nominations...it never stops her from sitting mesmerized for the whole show) She's been planning on watching the show for the entire week before, and kept asking me who I was watching the Oscars with...I took that to mean that she would like me to come over and watch with them...which is exactly what I did after spending the entire afternoon celebrating Snap Snap with a lunch out...and then celebrating the fact that we were going to try to make it through the afternoon and then the late night with the Oscars with coffee (Rozzie of course, never needs coffee...her natural enthusiasm carries her through...the rest of us yawn) She's always been a big Oscars fan (actually we all are, but my excitement has waned a bit, you know, seeing as I've finally realized that I will probably not be a 6 foot tall famous and beautiful actress...but, with Rozz, there may be hope yet for someone from the family making it into the Oscars...) (although, I'm telling you, I'd love to be a costume and/or set designer...I'm the person in the theater who is always going gooey over the outfits and the antiques they've used in movies)

So, I wasn't terribly impressed
with this year's show, wishing Whoopie, Ellen or Billy Crystal was hosting...but, that gave me quite a bit of time to concentrate on finishing my latest knit project, which was yet another set of leg warmers for myself...these one's striped, and totally different colors than the other two...and with winter lingering on, I'm sure I'll still have a chance to wear them...

Now, I can move on to the next project...a tank top. But, I may have to wait until after the little upcoming road trip to really get into that one...Right now I'm dashing around taking care of the millions of little details that come with stepping out of my life for a few days, to do something totally different.

The Oscars are a total snooze for me, I just cannot do it...

maybe if I knitted throughout!

The colors in your leg warmers match the colors of your cat in the picture on your marquee line.

She sure is strange! said...

What does it mean that you are stepping out of your life to do something totally different???

Inquiring minds and all that. Have fun, whatever it is!!!

The Oscars usually falls on or near my birthday---so I associate it with that. This is the first year in ages that I didn't bother to watch!

Here's to Rozz and her Oscar. :D

This year's show as a little boring. But there's always next year. :)
