Did y'all watch the Oscars last night? Yeah, you did?
BECAUSE I DIDN'T!!
What the heck man? Can you believe this? I forgot. Like it completely slipped my mind. Until 10:30 last night when I overheard something from a TV in another room of the house. I missed it. I missed the red carpet arrivals, the dresses, Hugh Jackman and my BFF Kate Winslet winning for Best Actress.
I'm a disgrace.
The Oscars has been my Superbowl since I was in the third grade. I remember begging my mom to let me stay up to watch until the very last award. I would also spend my allowance on the People magazine the following week so I could see the pictures. I have only missed it one other time in all these years, and that was five years ago, the night my sister in law gave birth to my nephew Mr. Toad. The one night I asked her not to go into labor. And then boom. I thought she was kidding when she called us from the hospital. I still think she did it on purpose. And I have never let her forget it either.
But last night? Last night I had no excuse. I was catching up on TiVo with Uberman, so at least it wasn't a wasted evening (like waiting for the birth of some kid). But still.
Kate's never gonna want to be my BFF now...
