Oscar and Me

Jenn and I had a great time at Elaine's Oscar party last night. There were about 25 smart and interesting people in Elaine's living room enjoying the parade of Oscar gowns and film accolades on the plasma TV. She also had a great spread of food, including homemade quiche, several different cheeses, charcuterie, grapes, roasted chicken, brownies, and other yummy stuff. As far as beverages are concerned, it was mostly a wine party, owing to the Sideways phenomenon, with just about everybody bringing a bottle. Jenn filled out her best guesses for who would win what on a form Elaine distributed at the beginning, and in the end she did very well, though probably not well enough to win the grand prize (a bottle of wine).

Jenn started getting sniffly from the cats, so we split at around 10:00 p.m. but we were both glad we went. We got home just in time to see the last winners (Jamie Foxx, Hillary Swank, Clint Eastwood, Million Dollar Baby). Then we went to bed, tired from running around most of the weekend with our houseguests.

Today is Monday, February 28, 2005. It's not leap year, so tomorrow is the first day of March. That means there are only 20 days until Spring. I'm back at work, and the one thing I've accomplished this morning is sharing the Numa Numa dance with my work friends.

One more thing: The last day of The Gates was yesterday. Today they start the process of dismantling them all. Overall I've enjoyed the project. It was neat to look at, and fun to talk about.

Of course, no one brought Merlot but there was plenty of Pinot Noir. (I can't imagine "Sideways" has been good for Merlot sales).
I'm guessing we didn't win the wine. But we drank plenty of it anyway, while we were there.
