A Word Or 71:
Hey, thanks for calling me on my BS mistakes yesterday, it pleases me that some people have been reading my little list of shows and snarky comments. Have a great weekend - the only thing that will get me through Oscar night is alcohol, here's a link to an Oscar's Drinking Game but there's got to be better ones, please post your own or links to better ones in the comments.

Also don't forget to enter our Luscious Oscar Pick 'em Contest - Signed Diana Ross cd? Are you kidding me?
