The Oscars are on tonight. I love the Oscars, and I don’t even care about who has been nominated. I don’t think I have seen a single movie that’s been nominated. No wait, I lied. I saw Kung Fu Panda. So that’s one movie. I haven’t even seen Wall*E because I was afraid I would feel too sorry for the robot and it would make me sad. No, for me it’s all about the clothes baby.
And tonight, for the first time ever, I get to watch the whole spectacle in HD. Cool. I will be able to see every hair extension, every wrinkle, and every bead on every dress. This is going to be great. I might even watch some of the red carpet pre-game show. I plan to stay up and watch the whole thing.
I just hope I can stay awake long enough. It was a rough night around here last night. The C-Man has the Croup. I didn’t even know an almost nine-year old could get the Croup, but apparently it is possible if you try really really hard.
So, I did not sleep well last night because I was tending to the Boy, and then I was sleeping on the floor in his room. This is not the best place to sleep because it is
- Cold and
Hard and cold explain themselves. The floor is sharp because it is littered with Hot Wheels, Bionicles in various stages of construction, alien action figures and Tech Decks. I did the best I could to brush them out of the way, but I was not entirely successful. After he fell asleep I went back to my room, only to be re-awakened for an encore performance about an hour later.
When the C-Man asked why I had left his room I told him my bed was more comfy than his floor. After our second trip to the steamy bathroom I took him back to bed and he laid out one of his blankets for me on the floor so I would be more comfortable. He also gave me a teddy bear to keep me company. What a sweetie.
Here’s hoping we get through the night Croup free and that I stay awake long enough to watch the show. I at least want to see the Best Supporting Actor award. It’s so obvious Heath Ledger is going to win, I don’t know why they even bothered to nominate anybody else.
