Oscar Time

And the winner goes to....

Rain falls here in Dallas. Drank all my cappuccino and need to get my team assignment done for my college course. Somehow I wound up being the unelected leader of our team. All good tho. So I need to finish that up so I can be smack dab in front of the TV with popcorn in grand supply.

I headed out of the sanctuary today, at Inspiring Body of Christ Church, in thought of how Pastor Rickie Rush reminds us to be eagles. Eagles soar just a bit higher and I like that eagles are solitary creatures. Then I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned and there was Bear.

It so amazes me how this guy finds me, within a crowd of few thousand. Anyway, Bear began to hug me before I was ready--I'm not complaining-just surprised he found me. We chatted for a pleasant moment. Enjoyed that. Turns out Bear bought a house about a year ago, which I didn't know. I told Bear about my return to school and he didn't know that. I think I kinda surprised him on the endeavor. All in all, our chat made the rain out side seem not so chilled...

So tonight is Oscar night. I want to win my OWN Oscar for Best Screen Adaptation and Best Picture. And I know it may be in the bag for Sandra Bullock--but I'd like Gabourey Sidibe and Mo'nique sweep for "Precious." Gritty. Hard to watch--yet worth the praise.

In the meantime, gotta finish my team project, ponder on Bear and check the popcorn level...

I am blessed.

I thought Precious was a good movie but as my hippie mother might have said, "It really brought me down, man."

HA! Sure, Precious was gritty, yet I found it uplifting. I know The Blind Side" was based on a true story, I found it kinda cheezy-and thought Precious, even with its subject matter--more real.

Oh Thomasina!! This is another film on my "must watch eventually"!! I'm so behind my cinema watching. I really rush straight home these days (since Jan!) because of the Cat! Seriously. She's very much on the edge these past two months and it's all I can do to go to work and be away from her!

Anyway! Strangely enough the last film I saw last year in November was... The Hurt Locker. I thought it was a fantastic film - subtle in its macho way (you can really see the "woman's touch" in every scene).

I am now rambling. I don't know who Bear is - but it sounds like you are old special friends - I must read your archive!

Oh and well done for being team leader. Yay!

Take care now

I've heard good things about The Hurt Locker--and I must see that! I'm also so behind in my movie going too!

And as for Bear...well.... :)
