The Curious Case of Slumdog Millionaire's Reader in Barcelona

I need to get out more. I haven't seen any of the movies so frequently mentioned at the Academy Awards. I don't know if we're too lazy to go to the movies or too cheap to pay the ticket and popcorn prices. But we just don't get to the movie theater much. I love the convenience of getting a Netflix movie in the mail and watching it with my lazy self stretched out on the couch eating my own microwaved popcorn. I do miss seeing some movies using this method though. Maybe I should start a list of "must see" flicks so I don't have to rely on checking out the "new release" list for adding movies to my queue.

Otherwise, I have two things to say about the Oscars: 1) I am in love with Hugh Jackman 2) For the love, would celebrities please stop using award shows as their own personal bully pulpit. OK, three things. 3) I want to be Meryl Streep. Or Queen Latifah.

Personally, I think they can say whatever, as long as it doesn't take more than 20 seconds.
