Plus tonight is the night that I do my “Dinner and A Movie” research. This consists of Going to a restaurant, eating, and then watching a movie (where I always sneak in a bottle of wine). What am I going to do with myself? I have a restaurant I have eaten at twice that I can review, but the substitute for wine in the movie? This problem kept me up late last night. I guess I’ll bring a Pom Tea.
I always see every movie that is up for an Academy Award, and the ones left for me to see are all very depressing, Nazi’s, death, murderesses, Indian Slums. I could face these movies with a nice Pinot Noir, but stone sober, dude I will be depressed for weeks. I take my Academy Awards seriously; I make it a whole day party. I watch every arrival, on at least three channels, dress up, make party favors, and cry thru the whole ceremony. I have been writing and practicing my own Academy Award speech for years. It is my meditation when I am lost, mad, sad, uninspired. If I am pissed at my husband, I leave him out. If a friend has done something nice for me, it is because of their help. The speech relaxes me, soothes me, and is my ultimate goal. I want to win for writing (Original Screenplay) and I am going to keep banging out screenplays until I do. I may be the oldest person to win, but so be it. Stone sober tonight, I watch other peoples depressing masterpieces.
