"I'll Rent THE READER"

I just got back from a wonderful Oscar party hosted by Jeremy from You're Being Ridiculous.

Jeremy's home was filled with great food, good friends and a lot of laughter, and the Academy Awards ceremony was smart, funny and well-executed. But even after two musical medleys...

...Please note that when you DON'T hire Debbie Allen to choreograph your medleys, the medleys are actually GOOD!...

...and all the brilliant, moving speeches, my favorite part of this evening came just a few minutes ago. As I was walking home, a young woman passed me talking to her friend and I heard her say...

"Dating is almost as bad as shopping for jeans."

Never have truer words been said in the history of language as we know it. 

That's it, girl. On the nosey.

Isn't it easier buying jeans for guys than it is for girls? Or is that my misconception. Or am I thinking of klutzy straight guys who will wear any 36x34 that falls off the shelf?

My friends call me Mitzi said...

But who doesn't like breakin' in a nice new pair of tight jeans?

Whoever that girl was is a genius. I could never have put it so correctly.
