Jane has asked me if I'm going to be bitingly sarcastic about what horrendous things people wear to the Oscars, and the answer is yes. And I'm having a few people over, people who understand my need to watch award shows with my laptop next to me, people who will ply me with alcohol so I get really really funny.
I was amazingly busy yesterday - I actually worked the entire time I was at work because I had to leave for the airport at 3. I call my mom a minute after her plane lands, and I tell her I'm leaving work now, and it's less than a 10 minute drive, by the time she has her luggage, I'll be outside.
Cue 18-wheeler to dump a load of steel directly between my work and the airport. I sat literally parked on 270 for 45 minutes. But no one wants to hear me talk about getting stuck in traffic.
But then we went to dinner at the fabulous Liluma and had a wonderful time. I think today we're going to be touristy and go to the St. Louis Art Museum.
And yes, my mom brought with her some fun presents (I may have a new pink purse. Seriously, I should call this the Pink Purse because I swear I have 10 of them!) which I'll take pictures of later. And my husband brought home beautiful star gazer lilies, so my house is full of flowers.
