What a prig
Jeffrey Rush is devastated that he didn’t win and Tom Hooper did. It’s killing him.
Fincher’s editors definitely deserve the award. Guy shoots hundreds of takes.
Separated at birth?
Billy Crystal and Nicole Kidman’s foreheads.
To watch Spicoli co-host the oscars. Waiting for him to have a pizza delivered onstage.
Melissa Leo was a clear number two, and did a fine job in her own right. Do yourself a favor,though, and see “Animal Kingdom”. Fantastic film, and very watchable.
Jackie Weaver unquestionably turned in the best performance of that group.
I’m rooting hard for Natalie to win as she is as sweet a gal as you will ever meet. The type who bakes homemade rugelach and brings it for the crew. It was good, too.
You served in the military?
Dad: yes, I was a war hero. Most women want to sleep with me. Try to control yourself. But if you play your cards right I’ll put you in my memoirs.
Just keeps going
Therapist: you have to be careful that your dog doesn’t knock you down. Dad: they’ll knock you down and eat you, you know.
Dad is on fire this morning
Therapist: did your walker have wheels? Dad: it did, and it still does. What do you think, they disappeared?
My God I am an awful person
Told my wife that I promised Dad we would name our son Mickey (his name) when he was in a coma and it helped wake him up.
The poor Dietician
She came in to Dad’s room and was extremely embarrassed about asking us to fill out his evaluation again.

My Father. He is alive. Back from the dead. Literally. Two days ago the Neurologist showed us a cat scan and explained how his brain had stopped functioning. After lengthy discussion we agreed to honor his wishes and remove him from the ventilator and feeding tube, allowing him to die in dignity. The Doc assured us it would be an hour, at the very outside a day, before he passed on. ...
He didn’t make it. Going to take a little sabbatical from blogging, got a lot to think about. Hug the people you love, you never know when you will lose them.
My (step)Mom is the bomb
She just rolled into the hospital wearing a black Chanel slip dress,a Burberry bucket hat, scarf, and pocketbook, Jimmy Choo stilettos and a black patent leather trenchcoat. The nurses jaws almost hit the floor. When I mentioned it she said: “When he opens his eyes I want him to have a good reason to get well”.
I feel exactly like I used to when I was getting in the ring. Breathing shallow and quick, eyes darting side to side and bouncing on the balls of my feet. Keeping my chin down and my shoulders loose, my hands are stone. I’m jacked up for a fight but there’s no one to punch. Even taking punches would be a relief right now. I love catching a solid shot and laughing at my opponent as I...
