# 10 OSCAR TIME

This is post number 10 in the marathon.

Once again my god-daughter will stroll the Red Carpet at the Academy Awards.  Tomorrow night she will be accompanied by her SO (significant other).  He just happens to be a celebrity in his own right after having been nominated for an Emmy last year for his work on Whale Wars.  (Plus he looks a lot like Ryan Gosling.)


It is my opinion that my god-daughter deserves a lot of fanfare instead of those boring old movie stars, but so far my letter writing campaign to feature her has been to no avail.  Two years ago she most definitely should have been highlighted because her escort was my daughter.  Remember the thrill I reported seeing two of my girls on the Red Carpet with George Clooney?


This post will easily segue into another for my marathon because I shall have to post again when there is a picture of my god-daughter and my GSOIL (god-significant-other-in-law).


Okay, here is what to look for.  God-Daughter will be wearing a black dress, her hair will be up and she will be wearing her glasses.  She looks exactly like her mother.  Her escort will look like Ryan Gosling. People will be approaching them and saying, "Didn't we see you at the Emmy Awards?" 

I'm sure you won't miss them:)

  2. Lynn -- Of course I was joking about watching for them. They will only be in crowd of about a million all looking pretty much the same. LOL She is going to call or text me to give a clue when to watch for them. I shall tell them "Life is a journey. Stay warm. Keep dry."

  3. I do not usually watch this show because of its endless length and the outtakes suffice the next day for me. But now I have to think about watching to look for a young woman with glasses in a black dress!

  6. Tabor -- I never watch the whole Oscars show but I always watch the red carpet. This is Jessi's (godddaughter's) fifth year to attend. Believe me, she and her SO still have that "Puritan" work ethic. Maybe if they didn't work so hard they could come home once in a while.

    sonny -- Last year I didn't get any still pictures but I did get the video of the portion where she walked it. I didn't actually see here there but she sent me the youtube link. The same with the year my daughter attended with her.

    Whitemist -- Yes it is very cool. She and her SO will probably skip the show and sneak into the actor's bar where everyone shows up eventually during the night. Except for your allergic reaction to the chicken dish, uour strange good times sounded good, including geese applause.

  7. Wow, THE Red Carpet!!! That's a double WOW! I'll be watching. This also gave me an idea! I think I'll go get a short narrow roll of red carpet, maybe a remnant, for the aisle of my classroom! Wouldn't that be great! All STARS in the room could make that journey. LOL Love it.

  12. Debbie -- That's a good idea. It is also a way to tell the children there are more ways than being a star to get on the Red Carpet. If they work for the Academy of Arts and Science they can get two free tickets every year. Behind the scenes people are more important and every bit as glamorous! You certainly gave proof to my theory that teachers are messing with our kids in your post today. Letting that poor kid think he'll miss his birthday this year!!!

    Riot Kitty -- Yes, she should really stand out! Actually she could just stand out by her beauty alone. Did I ever tell you that I used to make my children watch scary movies with me because I was too afraid to watch them by myself? They say nothing can scare them anymore because I conditioned them as children.

    Cliff -- Ron won't be watching either. As much as he cares about Jessi, he just can't do anything that appears as support for Hollywood. Plus he would have to change the from the History Channel and that's too much trouble. I must admit that I had to agree with your post "Enough Already". It is so difficult to try and figure out why everyone does not.

    Chatty Crone -- Don't worry Sandie, I'll post a picture after the fact. Oh it is truly a scary thought to imagine driving a car using a joystick. Why do I picture me driving off the side of a bridge?

    Kay -- The first year I watched the whole show, scanning the audience for a glimpse of my god daughter only to learn that her tickets were for the third balcony. LOL If I don't catch her entering on the red carpet, I will miss her totally. Kay, I am pretty sure the answer to your health question is Exercise AND dark chocolate. Yep, that's right.

    Charlotte -- At least point at the screen and yell, "That's her! That's Jessi!" and your family won't know the difference. LOL Billy Shakespeare is a wonderfully well behaved goat. I cannot imagine any of mine standing still for that brushing. Our billy goat is gone now, but he never let me brush him like that. He would let my granddaughter Hope brush him. All the goats lover her and that is why we call her Heidi.
