Happy Little Working Song

So it's Tuesday, and I'm at work. Lots of fun. I actually like Tuesdays because I know I get to be home the rest of the week. I was so proud of myself this morning. When I get to work first thing, I have to work out the finances from the day before, making sure that what we have in our hands equals what the computer says we have. Well, if any of you know me, I'm more of an art/subjective/creative type. As in, I hate math and anything to do with it. But I have actually gotten really good at this finance stuff! My friend Brooke, who is an accounting major, used to say that it made her day to see an accounting problem work out correctly. And, honest to goodness, now I know what she means. When I figure out what to add and subtract where, and adjust payments, and even it all out, I feel so much satisfaction that I did it. So I just needed to tell my friends that I am PROUD of myself today :)

I watched the Oscars on Sunday evening. And I must say, the highlight for me was seeing the nominated songs for Best Original Song. I really liked the one that won, called "Falling Slowly" in the movie "Once." (I've actually got this movie on my netflix list.) It's that indie/guitar/piano/acoustic vibe, which I always love. And Enchanted got 3 songs nominated! Way to go, Disney. I did pretty well this year, because I had seen 2 of the nominated movies for Best Picture (Juno and Atonement). Neither of them won, but they each won something...

Celebrities are really interesting. It's amazing what they can get away with. For instance, I think Tilda Swinton is hideously scary:

I think this girl (who won Best Actress) is ADORABLE:

I think Ellen Page was a genius in Juno:

I think this guy is SEVERELY overrated (and annoyingly liberal):

Props to Amy Adams for singing live in front of billions:

And this guy did an awesome job singing "So Close" from Enchanted!

Well, that's basically my Oscar recap. One of the docs is out today so it should be a little easier to manage around here. Happy day to all!

The guy who sang the Enchanted song is HOT! Who is he? I think the girl who won best actress is beautiful, but her dress looked like a fish. If you look at her waist you will see that it looks like fish scales.

Jon McLaughlin sings So Close. He's a cutie! Who wrote the anonymous comment by the way?
