apres oscar

apres oscar, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

The golden statuettes have all been handed out, many by golden statuesque women.

(A night of cheese in oh so many ways)

Full gorge ahead and w8 watchers points be damned! Oh and they were.

Take a wheel of brie, cut the top rind off, stick it in an oven proof dish, drizzle with maple syrup and pecan halves and heat until melty. Hack and spoon gooey, sweet, crunchy studded goodness on fresh baguette - eyes will roll back in head and little noises of pleasure will emanate.

Sparkly dress from goodwill, plastic blue prism earrings from the grocery store, gold heels from sale rack at shoe store and nail polish is
"I'm not really a waitress" from OPI.

The guests are gone and my feet are up!

Hah! You had a much glitzier Oscar night than I did. I spent the evening with the kids, had a ham sandwich for dinner, and then halfway watched part of the show while practicing my guitar.

Beautiful! and YUMMMMM.

I watched the Oscars in my flannel PJs. Very elegant.

Photo Quotes
When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
