Sometimes I think my life is high school on steroids. But in a good way.

Are you by any chance referring to the Oscars last night, and Doogie Howser appearing on stage in his skivvies/y-fronts? Gah.

I don't usually watch that stuff, but I liked a couple of the films and thought it'd be nice to see pretty ladies in pretty dresses, so I gave it a shot. Doogie in his panties put me right off.

Hooray for Eddie Redmayne, though.

It was pointed out to me that the Mr. Underpants was an allusion to "Birdman"; still, what may work on film in the context of a story just didn't work for me in this setting.

And by the way, get off my lawn.

I guess it is in that they haven't grown up. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

If what you do goes "viral" on the net, you can feel relevant for a short while. That's important, I understand.


You know - ME, ME! Look! It's ME. Aint it great?

In Hollywood and in West Hollywood, it's the equivalent of the Super Bowl to the rest of the country--with the exception of some sections of Rhode Island.

Glad I missed whatever it was.

(I am not that clueless, I deliberately avoid anything to do with Hollywood)

Not me. It's taxable. The stuff isn't worth the taxes I would have to pay on it.
