I have got to be the worst Jonathan Rhys-Meyers fan. I had NO IDEA he was in MI:3!!! Now I MUST see it this weekend. JRM on the big screen… GUH.
A few thoughts from the show…
The opening bit was really funny with Billy Crystal and Chris Rock in the Brokeback tent.
So much George Clooney love! I’m glad he won Best Supporting Actor… just because I lurve him. He gave my favorite acceptance speech of the night. I’m listening to his post-show interviews as I’m typing this and he just said that he blew the Batman franchise. Heh. True. I love that he doesn’t take himself so seriously that he can admit that.
Aww, I really wanted Michelle Williams to win Best Supporting Actress — if only to see a Creeker win an Oscar! And it was so cute to see Busy Phillips sitting next to her. They’re BESTFRIENDS4EVA.
PANTS EQUALITY FOR ALL! Hehe. That made me want to see Chicken Little.
Dolly Parton looks scary. Her boobs are like ten times bigger than her waist. EEEK. :/
What is Charlize wearing? That dress is unfortunate. The big bow is *awful.*
I totally want one of those stuffed penguins.
Three 6 Mafia winning Best Song for It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp was one of the BEST Oscar moments. EVER.
Jon Stewart was a great host. I loved when he was giggling about Three 6 Mafia. I especially loved this joke:
Martin Scorsese – 0 Oscars
Three 6 Mafia – 1
Yay Reese! Another great acceptance speech. There’s just something about her that I find so charming and likable.
Wow, Crash won. Huh. It was a good movie but I didn’t really like it. Now, Brokeback Mountain I loved. I seriously thought it was going to win. That was a big upset.
Didn’t watch the Super Bowl but I do want to say that I think Hines Ward is cuuuute.
So I found a new show this weekend… Project Runway! I only saw the last 4 episodes but I’m totally hooked. I can’t believe I managed to stay away this long. It’s about Fashion! And Clothes! Otherwise known as stuff I love! Right now my favorite designer is Daniel. From what I’ve seen, he would have an awesome runway show. I also really like Chloe. Her designs are simple and not really anything mind-blowing but there’s just something very relatable and wearable about them. They would translate really well to “real life.” The PR show is this coming Friday at Fashion Week. I can’t wait to see the designs for the Top 3! I blame this new obsession all on Rob (yes, my boyfriend!) and Nicola. THANKYOUVERYMUCH.
I am now caught up on One Tree Hill… am I the only one who cringes during scenes between Brooke and Lucas? And no, not because I don’t like the pairing… but because it seems so awkward to watch Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray in romantic situations. I know they’re professionals but they’re getting a divorce! That just seems harsh.
And because Alie said so… ð

Just finished watching Prison Break 1.08, The Old Head.
Just wanted to send my thoughts out to Amy and Allison and everyone else affected by Hurricane Katrina. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. *hugs*
So I remembered to watch the series premiere of Prison Break Monday night and I liked it. BUT. The story was a little too far-fetched for me (and I’m someone who has no problems believing Jack Bauer has had 4 incredibly crappy days or Sydney Bristow is a superspy) — I mean, WHO in their right mind would *intentionally* get arrested so he can break himself and his brother out of prison?!? Makes no sense to me at all. But once I got past that, and the cheesy dialogue (“Keep your friends close and your enemies closer” — come ON!), I actually found myself wanting to find out what happens next. Especially at the very end with the… you know. EEK. I also really liked the set up for the government conspiracy plot against Lincoln… that’ll keep me watching for the next few episodes to see where the writers go with the story.
Plus, there’s always the eye candy. Wentworth Miller is cuuuute. Whenever Mariah Carey’s video for We Belong Together is on, I always watch it so I can catch a glimpse of him, lol.
Anyway, FOX is rerunning the premiere on Thursday, I believe… so there’s another chance to catch it if you missed it!
So it’s official. The Fall TV season has started. YAY. Speaking of which, where in the world is my Entertainment Weekly Fall preview issue? That’s the issue I look forward to the most every year. Hurry it up! ð
Jonathan Rhys Meyers alert! ð New (and positively gorgeous) pictures of JRM on the set of Mission Impossible 3 at JRM Fans. I especially love the ones of him wearing glasses. *swoon*
And now for the rest of my Top 5 answers…
Top 5 Quotes from Books/People/Songs
1. “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of god – your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. It is not in just some of us. It is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” — Marianne Williamson
2. “Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” — Aristotle
3. “To look life in the face and to know it for what it is. At last to know it. To love it. For what it is.” — Virginia Woolf
4. “Do or do not, there is no try.” — Yoda (HEE!)
5. “Don’t waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind. The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself.” — Mary Schmich
Top 5 Britney Spears Fashion Statements (complete with pictures!)
1. WTF?!? There are so many things wrong with this outfit. First of all, the skirt? It’s falling off. Then it looks like Britney can’t be bothered to wear the camisole properly. It’s all bunched up on one side and her breast isn’t even in the proper part of the top. Gah. But the worst is that she’s BAREFOOT. Blech.
2. EEEK. It’s like she got dressed in the dark.
3. Just… no. I actually think Britney looks great — nice, shiny hair, natural-looking makeup, great body. It’s just the whole dominatrix outfit that doesn’t work for me. Too over the top.
4. My eyes!!! You’d think she couldn’t afford a mirror or something. The skull cap and acid-washed jeans (with studs!) are just so awful. I do love her smile in this picture, though. She was so cute pre-Federline.
5. UGH. You can see her bra! Not attractive. Plus, the top doesn’t go well with those plaid pants at all. Normally, I’d think those pants are cute… but with something minimal on top. And that lacy atrocity is anything but minimal.
Sadly, this is just a drop in the bucket… I could have gone on and on and on… heh.
I’ll take any other Top 5 requests you guys want to throw at me. I’ve had fun answering all of them! ð
I started getting ready for the trip to Hawaii (squee!) this weekend… bought flip flops, beach towels, sunscreen, shorts (ugh, I don’t typically wear shorts but they’re a necessary evil), and of course, a swimsuit. Trying on swimsuits was… NOT FUN. I don’t really have body image issues but… blech. I’d rather not have to try on bathing suits again. Ever again. *shudders*
So… I finally managed to finish up sour-lemon.org. Does anyone even remember that I bought that domain months back? lol. Anyway, I basically moved all my wallpapers and scans and combined them into one big multimedia site since I was getting tired of maintaining separate sites. There’s nothing new… yet. But there *is* a new layout! Please visit!

So the Bend it Like Beckham DVD has been purchased and capping has begun. *grin* I have no idea what I’m going to do with the caps… it’s just nice to know that I will have a folder full of Jonathan Rhys-Meyers pictures.
Here’s my most favorite cap so far…
Hopefully that’ll be the end of all my JRM gushing here on my blog. Hee.
I have a new obsession. Well, 2 new obsessions actually.
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is the first. And Bend it Like Beckham is the second. Seriously, I *really* don’t need new obsessions.
Now, I realize BiLB has been out on DVD for ages now and the DVD has been sitting in my apartment forever (Yay Netflix!) but I just got around to watching it this weekend. And I ended up watching it 3 times. Mostly because I just totally completely fell in love with the movie but partly because I totally completely fell in love with Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. OMGheisSOHOT!
I really need to head over to Best Buy to pick up my very own copy of BiLB. I must make caps. There’s one scene in particular where he’s wearing a white collared shirt… YUM.
In other news, did anyone catch Everwood tonight? Good grief Berlanti! There is no need for Irv/Edna… uh… relations, ok? I almost spit my orange juice at the TV! And still no Nina. For shame.
I finally caught up with the last 4 episodes of One Tree Hill. Holy crap, I LOVE THIS SHOW. I watched the pilot and a few episodes following and thought it showed a lot of potential (and in the process developed a *little* tiny crush on James Lafferty) — but then 24 premiered and it’s in the same time slot so OTH got relegated to “record and watch if I have time” status. Anyway, today I had absolutely no plans so I decided to watch my tape and HELLO — from the time I stopped watching regularly to now, the show has gone in a completely different direction. The Peyton/Lucas/Nathan triangle that I was dreading has been replaced by Peyton/Lucas/Brooke which is just SO much more interesting. The 2 guys/1 chosen girl storyline is just so tired. AND AND… I think I’ve found my new ship… Nathan/Haley. These two have the chemistry, the angst, and the cuteness. Love them.
But why must I wait until January for more new episodes?!?
Watching the past episodes of OTH also allowed me to see my other boy crush — Mike Erwin. *happysigh* Too bad his hair was all greasy and he played a horrible character. But whatever. I saw Mike Erwin. That’s all that matters. *g*
I know it’s like 3:30 in the morning but I’m currently watching the cast commentary for LOTR: The Two Towers. I love it! Hee. It’s so cute to hear Elijah, Orlando, Billy, Dominic, Sean, Andy, etc. talking and laughing and making up silly little stories. Funny stuff.
