Star sighting below...
Wouldn't be be nice if Word Verification was more meaningful-- like a word of the day with definitions or a person's name from history with a brief bio, or even winning lottery numbers-- anything but the hard to read gibberish they have now.
I'm trying to watch Orange is the New Black on NetFlix, based on a true story about a woman in prison. Let me tell you, it's a lot of work with plenty of cringing. Not sure I'm going to make it past episode 4. Do you NetFlix?
And how about those Emmy Nominations? I'm guessing the big TV network guys have a lot of explaining to do. No Best Drama shows from the "big four" which appear to be shrinking by the minute!
But, I'm so glad Downton Abbey was recognized and I loved House of Cards with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.
And speaking of celebrities, I had three "star sightings" this past week.
First was the lavender-haired Kelly Osbourne (E! News and Fashion Police) at the local Thai restaurant Husband and I frequent. I have to say, the lavender hair is really lovely in person-- way better than it looks on television.
And, I sat in on a fascinating Q&A following the movie Still Mine starring James Cromwell and Genevieve Bujold, both Oscar nominees. It's a love story about a couple married for 60 years. He wants to build a house on his land-- smaller and more manageable for the couple, but runs into problems with both the building department and health issues. It's heart-felt and funny and sad and uplifting. I enjoyed it very much.
As for the two stars-- absolutely delightful. James Cromwell is well over 6' 6" tall and still has a school boy twinkle in his eye. He's much younger than many of the rolls he plays and, honestly, he's kinda sexy. Ms Bujold is a tiny little thing and stunning with a dry sense of humor and a love for her art. I highly recommend Still Mine... if you can find it in a theater near you. It's in limited release.
Have a great weekend.
