The Leg, The Posterior, and The Oscars

Whole lotta leg: Angelina Jolie flashes more than a peek of her pin as she walks the red carpet at the 84th Academy awards in Hollywood last night

Say what you will! The girl ain’t afraid of being a woman, last night at the 84th Academy Awards, she owned her feminie-side.  Angelina Jolie looked absolutely stunning, yes, I’m in luv! I am so glad to see a woman have the courage of looking like, well you know, a woman.  Ok, so my luv may have another ulterior motive, like cooking Sunday pasta at the Jolie-Pitt home (any one of them), because I think Moms need a lot of energy to chase all the young ones…ok, ok, she could use a few extra pounds too!

I am just getting off the Academy high, and yet I can’t really place it, but last night I had a bittersweet feeling. The epic show of sheer talent, and beauty was so enticing, that I actually started planning 15 years from now.  Technically, the 100th Academy Awards are 16 years from now, but I’ll need at least one year to program, and organize. OMG, what a party that will be, given we’re all alive!

Now, take these two, only not for long because we would miss them terribly! However, lets have a chat about Ms. Lopez’s hairstyle, I’m over it, aren’t you? She’s needs something a bit less predictable, for big-girl’s night out on the red carpet (I think)! What would Vidal Sassoon do with her gorgeous mane?

And, yes there were these two, but who cares?! Why did they pick Oscar night to do their First Communion, really!!

And, then there was this “inexplicably” wonderful actress, Meryl Streep! No one is saying “no, not her again”, but “whatever”!   Do you think Ms. Streep was doing a bit of L.O.A, in her gown selection?

Maybe she kind of called it upon herself, because she may have been wearing what Oscarina (that’s the Oscar female statue name) would have worn!

I was wild about so many designer gowns, that I am really at a loss for words at how beautiful some of my fav stars looked in them!

After what appeared to be a long dry spell,  I’m glad to see Hollywood glamour making a come back .Oscars red carpet: 2012 Academy Awards arrivals

Suffice it to say, I also was teary eyed at the acceptance speeches!  Whether I understood what they were saying or not (some were in French), I got it, they were really glad to have won!

I know you’re wondering what I’ll be wearing for the 100th Academy Award party, which I’ve started planning, what about this number?

Just a thought!

Happy Birthday Steve Jobs

A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. -Steve Jobs

King Cake

I still  have to go to Confession, especially after this Mardi Gras favorite!

Savoring Every Bite

You don’t need to live in New Orleans to enjoy the local festivities of Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday!  There is something so colorful and fun about the New Orleans’ King Cake that I have to make it every year just to feel like I’m celebrating right along with the folks in New Orleans. 

Fat Tuesday is right around the corner wrapping up the the Mardi Gras or Carnival Season that is so well celebrated in New Orleans.  The season begins on January 6, also known as “King’s Day” honoring the meeting of the Three Wise Men with the baby Jesus.  The hiding of the baby in the cake was to symbolize the finding of the baby Jesus.

Before my move to Florida, I had considered a relocation to New Orleans.  I made several trips there to look around and during those times, the city grabbed my heart.  The people there seemed…

Love Meter

 Recently speaking to a  friend of mine, we were discussing varying cultural dating trends.  He asked me what I thought about the the  several women he was dating, and he was thinking about getting serious with one!  He started to detail some attributes, and then he started to describe the material wealth each had,  I stopped him at this point much to his surprise.
Man thinking on a train journey.


I said there is just one question I would like you to answer for me, when you consider choosing your life partner; he looked puzzled at me, but said “ok”!  I reminded my friend that are no guarentees in life, and that life can be as predictable as a clock, or turned upside in a NY Minute (song).

I said the question is “of the women that you are dating, which one would you visit in the hospital everday for five years, hold her hand, and tell her you love her ?”  I further added, “she could understand, and hear you, but she cannot communicate with you verbally”.

I looked at him sternly in the face, and said “this is what life is about, this is what can happen, we never know!”  He looked around the room, pondering the question, and it’s realities, then gave me his answer. “I couldn’t do that for anyone, no I couldn’t, maybe not five years”!  I continued, there are no maybes, that is the scenario I assured him!  Could you hold someone’s hand everyday, and say “I love you” while they were incapacitated in some way?  After carefully thinking, he said “no, I can not do that”!

In life, like love, we have to think of all the possibilites. It is in those possibilities, that we truly understand the meaning of a relationship, of love, and marriage.

Lets Kill Cupid

Of all the things that eludes people, the happiness that is within their grasp seems most elusive!  How could it be that something, so precious is within our grasp, yet seldom know it?

“Ignorance is bliss” you say, but not really!  If you’re  just feeling unfilled in some way, or have some unexplainable exasperating gnawing in your heart, you may be unhappy.  I’m sorry to address this on Valentines, but it needed to be said!  I’m not sure if Cupid deals only with people hooking-up, or has to do with self-love as well; I imagine the former  is applicable.

Therefore, the lonesome job to achieve self happiness falls on each, and every one of us.  Hard truth, but the other side is that when you are on the road to fulfillment, and happiness, you’ll have a better chance for Cupid to strike (maybe)!

You’ll become aligned to receive, give, and become more interesting too, since gaining a new perspective (maybe)!  Now how does all this happen? Quite simply, give yourself what you would like others to do for you!

If you would like flowers, buy yourself flowers, that special song, outfit, or hat.  It doesn’t have to be a huge thing, just something that touches you in some way, or makes you feel special.  For instance, I just love  coming home to music playing, I feel soothed, and turns my home in to a personal expression of self!  I encourage you to find that “thing” that just calls your name!

Treat your self, and don’t wait for someone else to do it, if they do great!  That’s a start to loving a very special someone, who deserves lots of wonderful things. You thought it would be a tablespoon of this, and a cup of that?  Really!!

This is an infinite recipe,  whereby every moment is precious, every smile is deserved, every hug is earned yet unexpected, and everyday brings a new way to say “I Love You, Me”!
