I'd Like to Thank the Academy

You like me, you really like me! Remember that awards show where Sally Field was saying that?  I really like her, and I do enjoy watching the show Brothers and Sisters, but that darn strike got me all messed up with my TV watching, in fact Jeff and I sat down the other night all excited that House was on, we had our drinks and our popcorn, and it was a stupid repeat. Geesh!

I was watching HGTV today and watching House Hunters, and this man oh my gosh if he was my real estate agent, I would have fired him.  I mean, I know it is all a TV show but he showed the girl two houses that were totally not what she was looking for, then he would say "what do you think?" meanwhile the whole time she was like, the bathroom is too small, the yard is too small, I don't like this or that, and I just wanted to slap him up side the head.  But while the show was on there was this funny commercial for Black & Decker and the man was like painting the house, and he was getting mad and he would flick his hand back and he flicked paint on his wife's dress, then it shows him drying dishes and he does it again, slam the plate goes smashing behind him against the wall, and basically it is a commercial for a new tool, instead of buying the old pull string mowers, and trimmer things that you pull and pull it is some battery thing...but I thought it was hilarious.  It reminded me of the commercials that are for things that are automatic, like you talk to your phone and it dials, you tell your radio what to play it plays it, and you don't have to touch it. It shows the girl saying "door open" and the door of course does not open and she walks into it and spills coffee all over, the guy says "blinds closed", and strips naked in front of the window and his neighbor sees cause the blinds don't close. The funniest of all in that commercial is the guy in surgery and the doctor is like "anesthesia on", and he is starting surgery and the patient starts yelling " anesthesia on!" those are fun commercials.  I would love to be in the meetings when they make a commercial. In fact Stampin' Up! has a contest for demonstrators to make up a commercial spoof and send it in and they will show them at Convention, if my BFF Tracy lived here I think we could do it. Can't ya see us yelling at our stamp and ink pad "ink on!"

I watched Ellen today, can you believe 800 shows, I had no idea she has been on for 5 years, I mean where was I?  That can't be right? She is hilarious, I used to watch Oprah or at least turn it on to see who was on, but Ellen is just fun and not so depressing, plus she seems so sincere and sometimes Oprah...well...just doesn't.

I wanted to show the make n take for my meeting on Sunday.  I know...I know, it is those darned apples again from Give Thanks, but I love them.  Plus I love the stamp set Smarty Pants for the fun greetings and wanted to use that too.








So back to thanking the Academy, I won an award today, I actually won it last week from Jamie Sears httPhotop://stampinmommyof4.blogspot.com and did not know what to do, so I am hoping I am going to do this right.
