Broadway Bound!

Full circle with Amy - her very first NY show, and now, the revival with her new apartment and her big city life, she proved that it can be done!
Stunning Helen Mirren - We were in the same room! Breathing the same air!
Long live the Queen.

I was a no-show for the Oscars this year. Seems I wasn't alone. Ratings were way down, even with one of my faves NPH in his tighty whiteys. I loved Birdman, every bit - the stripped bare emotions, the out of the box story, the fast, continuous way it was filmed, Michael Keaton. I thought he should have won Best Actor until I saw Theory of Everything, then changed my mind. That Eddie guy, wow. I can't seem to go see Still Alice to judge the Best Actress category, the book was too amazing to ruin, especially after the Wild and Gone Girl films forever took out of my brain two incredibly written books. On our nightly walk, Nicky and I saw an Oscar party three doors down, complete with a couple of Mercedes out front, red carpet on the sidewalk and lots of stars in golden chalk on the driveway. Seems like fun, but the speeches, the commercials, the hashtagging, the fake kisses. I should start my own awards show. We could all get dressed up one, two, three times a year and congratulate each other for doing our jobs - #mondaystuckatwork #needmorebotox #pickmepickme

Diet Pepsi, lots of ice

I used to be an addict. No way could I get through a day without two, three, maybe more Diet Pepsis. I went cold turkey when I was pregnant and, besides the actual delivery, it was the worst part of the whole nine months. I gave it up again last year, sort of, weaning myself down to about one a week. The stuff'll kill us. Aspartame. Or gobs of sugar in the regular version. Throw in the wasted water and bottling and shipping and damage to the environment sodas cause and we've got a nasty problem. But, I'm polite. I'm not going to mention any of this later this month in New York, when I tag along with Shana to meet Pepsi, her big new client. I'm going to grab Amy, walk right in to the Mothership and order one. Maybe after that I can quit for good.

Take Me To Church

My latest favorite sad song - made more beautiful.

There's so much hate in this world, judgement, pain, especially in the name of God, which makes no sense. Dr. Shawn wants to create a pill that takes away hate before it blows up the world. Hurry, hurry.

Went with the gang to observe the fabulous Heather (who WAS fabulous!) then I got forced to the stage to do the sound effects for a gravedigger. 
Never sitting up front again...
Here's a snippit.
