I dressed up kinda nice, wore my favorite silk scarf that I ever painted, and a pair of new heels.
Stopped off at Harry Winston's for some bling. But wasn't able to get a bodyguard.
It seems they were all busy guarding the jewels the celebrities borrowed from them,
for Oscar night. Dangit. ;)
After that, I headed out. It was a gorgeous, sunny, Southern California day.
"Alright, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close up."
I got lost. Of course. Drove around in circles for twenty minutes. Not a great idea when gas is $4.37 a gallon, and you're driving a van.
And here she is! My pal since our first day of Jr. High School! Through all of our moving around and living in different parts of the country, we've always kept in touch. Hey! Good friends are hard to come by! And besides, she knows all my secrets, so I can't piss her off!
Here's the rest of our gang from Jr. High.
Shari, Shelby, yours truly and Val. Still as crazy as ever! Love these gals!!
Think I'll move in.
Took time to smell the roses. Sniff, sniff. Mmmmm.
These are the score-thingies. We were supposed to put a check by all we thought would win.
I can truly say, I suck at this game!!
Some of the gals had already claimed their seats and were ready to get started on their ballots. But first I made them pose for a picture. There's Dee on the left, then Shari, Helen, Carol and Beverly.
She's ready to kick some butt and win this thing!
Think I'll go eat some more cookies. Which I did.
Love her sparkly vest.
Even though I love, Meryl Streep, I wanted the gal from, "The Help" to win. And I was hoping the funny gal from, "Bridesmaids" would win too. But it was not to be. This is why I never win the game!
And who picked the most winners? Eighteen!! (Compared to my four!)
Good job, girl!!
Well... okay... there's that Brad guy.
From left to right; Beverly, Dee, Shari, Shelby, Carol, Colleen, Val and Helen.
"Cigars? Cigarettes?" Val. Such a jokester. :)
You'll see why I mention that, in a second.
Of course I did.
I told you I'd be sorry that I ate all that good stuff!! I felt like a zombie. Couldn't finish a sentence.
Walked as if I was drunk. Had a stomach ache and a headache, heading for a migraine.
Some of you know that I have a ton of food sensitivities and can't eat anything processed.
Or sugary. That's why I became a raw foodist. But, I still cave when I'm around so much good stuff!!
And I always pay the price. I spent most of Monday in bed. Someday I'll learn!
Temptation. It is what it is.
You will need these the next day.
I've done this before too. Different shoes. Same feet.
I felt better on Tuesday and was able to have a healthy breakfast. A piece of my left-over, raw Cheesecake! Yeah, baby!! And hot water.
Leaving the glitz and glamour of the Oscars behind... it's back to reality.
Whatever the heck that is. :-)
There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
Signing off for now,
