I live in Williamsburg and it's not as hip as everyone thinks it is. Especially not the part that I live in. Yes, I see lots of people moving here that are quite obviously not from New York and I think how they all got suckered into moving here. I came here out of necessity and they have volunteered to live in an over-hyped and over-valued rinky dink part of brooklyn. But these are youngs kids and I see their stay here being temporary. It's never going to go back to the way it was before and that's a good thing but the way it is now is temporary. Hm, I could see it becoming sort of Park Slope-ish in a few years...Maybe then I will decide to move to a nice apartment.
Finally! The Oscar Awards are tonight! Mark called me about an hour ago and we started talking about our favorites. I think it's between Million Dollar Baby and The Aviator for Best Movie. Best Actor? Definitely Jamie Foxx. Best Actress? Hillary Swank. Best Supporting Actor? Clive Owen. Best Supporting Actress? Cate Blanchett...We'll soon see if I'm right or wrong. I love seeing what everyone is wearing, who's hosting and who's speech is the lamest and most moving.
Know what I hate. These effing mommy and daddy blogs. I have tried reading them but if you yourself do not have children - it will put you to sleep or a coma - whichever comes first. Every mom or dad thinks their kid is the greatest. I'd rather have a puppy. A wittle, wittle puppy, awwwww...
Anyway, so like I was saying. These mommy/daddy blogs are popping up everywhere. It's not the fact that these are parents that are blogging, it's the fact that they describe themselves on their blogs as just parents. So they're not individuals? Not just a man or a woman? Not an artist or engineer? No, they're a mom or dad. Sort of like Lisa Whelchel and her crazy ass blog. This WAS a hollywood actress! Now all she talks about is her husband, kids, church and her quasi-gambling addiction.
I was checking out Craigslist today after not looking at that site for months. I decided to entertain myself by posting as a escort. Got over 50 responses and no lie, most of them described themselves as married. Ladies, watch your men. If they know about Craigslist, trust me - they're looking for some punani on the side... I always enjoy looking for the ads placed by a former friend of mine, Gary. His ad is alway in Casual Encounters and its the one with the most spelling errors and lack of commas and periods. Plus his ad is ALWAYS in caps. Don't answer his ad, ladies. He just wants to jerk off while watching you tied up to his socks and some wirehangers. He also likes to take pictures of that... and yes, he is married but he won't lie to you about that. Don't say I haven't warned you.
