We woke up to more snow this morning, we've had more snow this week than in the rest of the winter combined!
And Steve happened to stay in Toronto last night so I got the pleasure of shovelling this morning! Oh well, I figure that's my workout today instead of Curves.
Did you stay up to watch the ladies skate last night? I did, the last flight of women were so good and I was so glad to see Joannie win bronze, she showed so much courage. But thank goodness the Olympics are almost over, I need some sleep, lol! And I have to get caught up on Survivor(will watch it today), 24, Amazing Race and American Idol too(I know, such priorities I have!).
And soon it will be Oscar night! Do many of you follow the Oscars? I do but every year its about 2 weeks before they are to be awarded and I have a list of movies I still want to see.
Of the movies nominated in various categories, and that I've seen, here's my thoughts:
Up In The Air - liked it but best picture? I don't think so.
Avatar - again I liked it but I don't think its worthy of best picture, the effects are really good though
The Blind Side - love Sandra Bullock in this
Julie and Julia - liked this movie, Meryl Streep has such a way of making you forget she's Meryl Streep when you watch her
Nine - kind of an odd movie, I liked the musical numbers and, like Meryl, Daniel Day Lewis makes you forget he's Daniel Day Lewis
Up - such a sweet story, I liked it
Sherlock Holmes - who doesn't like Robert Downey and Jude Law?
Young Victoria - I've always had an interest in royalty, the manipulations and politics are so intriguing( I'm also thinking of the Tudors here.)
Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince - you just have to like these movies
Star Trek - loved it
So the list of nominated movies I haven't seen but sound intriguing is shorter than I thought:
The Hurt Locker
Inglorious Bastards-Steve(who has seen thi sone)says its is pretty farfetched
Precious - I know this is supposed to be good but the story line doesn't appeal to me
I think I'll try to watch The Hurt Locker before Oscar night, is there any other one you think is a must see?
