What the Super Bowl means to me-another football season is over!

So, in case you've been under a rock, this Sunday is the granddaddy of all Sundays, the Super Bowl. I myself, could care less...but somehow I end up co-hosting the party. I've learned a few things along the way, and I am happy to share my last minute Super Bowl party tips.

The one nice thing about the west coast...kick-off is at 3:18 pm, instead of 6:18 pm. I NEVER understood why the game starts so late on a "school night." Why not start earlier, or play on a Saturday?

All I know is, football is over for awhile, thank goodness!! And on February 14th, pitchers and catchers report to Spring training. Why is that important? That means SPRING is on the way! Whooop Whooop!

The Recovering Actor? SAG round-up

The SAG’s were on Sunday night. Yes, I really am an award show junkie! The SAG's began with a selection of actors from around the room reciting a quick lmonologue extolling the virtues of the craft and ending with…”I’m so-and -so and I’m an Actor”

That get’s me every time, I could’ve been a contender, and I could have been an actor!

My love of the stage started back in a grade school class play, when I slyly expanded the small role of Lady Lemondrop with comedic ad libs. Suddenly, I was a bit of a celeb, and I LOVED it. More school plays, musicals, and summers spent doing shows at the local community center. I was building up quite the resume. Ahh…C’est la Vie.

  • Is there a 30 Rock backlash yet?
  • I'm starting not to care for Kate Winslet. I don‘t respect actors who fall apart when they make a speech. Get it together lady!
  • That House guy really cleans ‘em up. That show is "eh" for me.
  • Sally Field winning was a bit of a shock. I guess they still really, really like...oh you know...
  • Mad Men really is good, just have to be in the right frame if mind.
  • There was a nice tribute for James Earl Jones, who is very cool. It was a little long so that is where I switched over to Family Guy. Overall the SAGS are actually pretty snappy time wise. We'll see what the Oscars bring!
