*Janet said her husband conversationally told her that someone had called him fat while he was at work. She responded that he looked fine to her, and that to her he looked like he'd been losing weight.
In a show of support, she innocently asked, "who in the world would say that?" When he responded "none of your business", she thought he was joking. Thinking nothing of it, she asked again. She told me that not only did he give the same response, but he did so angrily, and that it was no big deal. Janet told him if it's no big deal why didn't he want her to know who said it, and what's the problem? He then yelled that she needed to stop asking questions, or he was really going to get mad and tear something up in the house. Say what?

Years ago I used to really get into who would win best picture, with parties and contests, but now I just watch for the outfits and performances. Anywho, those who were fortunate enough to be nominated should be thrilled even if they don't win because they really score with a Swag Bag filled worth over $100,000!
What could cost that much? Color changing lipstick, a 6 night stay in Hawaii in a 2 bedroom room luxury villa, a 12 night stay and tour in Tanzania that costs $40,000, and a whole lot more! Would you really be upset if you didn't win that Oscar?
One of the things that I never understood is that people are there early, sweating and hoping it won't their outfits won't get messed up, taking pictures, walking the red carpet and just sort of hanging out for hours before the actual event.
Then you have to be aerobically ready to make it up all those dang steps, and still look glamorous or sexy.
After that, there are all these parties, more sweating, more eating and more pictures. By this time, a few people are pretty wasted.(lol)
If it were me, I'd get there no more 10 minutes before, looking fabulous and picture ready, and as one of the 1500 invitees to the Governor's Ball, I'd grab my golden chocolate statue, Macaroni & Cheese, Baked Potato with caviar and Wagyu Slider To Go,then rush home so I could get in my pajamas with a good book and all those yummy goodies.(lol)
Meanwhile, I'll be watching at home with my cheeseburger, lemonade and maybe a salad. How about you?
