Why did I watch the Emmys?

Is it just me, or is the Emmys becoming more and more boring every year? I watched in hopes of Jon Stewart/TDS or the Colbert Report would win and give us a funny acceptance speech, but Tony freaking Bennet won? I was also disappointed that Alec Baldwin didn't break into his hilarious Tony Bennet impression while on stage. Meh. However, I am glad I watched for one reason: one woman had some really weird boob action, and I had to pause the DVR, drag my husband in, and make sure I wasn't going crazy.

I have no idea who this actress is. I have no idea what show she is on. And I have no idea how her handlers could have let her out without taping her tube boobs up into some roundish fashion, instead of going for the coke bottle look. OH MY GOODNESS. They're not even pointing in the same direction - or are the same LENGTH. <-- a word not to be used in conjunction with breasts.

Do not think that those are unfortunate folds in her dress. We paused it on our TV (large and in charge HD) and you could see nipple action. That is what happens when you lose too much weight, people: you lose it from your boobs and they take on the appearance of deflating bottles. Ack.

Had a fabulous weekend with too much good food (is there such a thing?) good times with my sweetheart of a cousin, and a wrap party for Blood on the Highway Saturday night that kept me out until 4am. \o/ I'm still tired. Man alive, there are some fun people involved with this. Best of all was hanging with my hilarious sister and her fiance, and my buddy Casey who does the BEST Christopher Walken impression. Laughed my ass off for six hours that night. YAY! Oh, and I will be working on another film this December, which is tres exciting. (Not the sequel to BotH - another movie!) Life is fine, people. Life is fine. There are friends, comfy beds, good smelling foods, people I love... Good times.

I spoke with entrenous88 this morning and it brightened my day - and now I want to bake a pie. Yesterday was the FANTASTIC marenfic's birthday, and I promise to give her spankings to her in person when she comes to visit (with southernbangel in less than two weeks (WHOOOOOO!) and I may just take a nap with a book outside in our cooling weather. AHHHH, Life is so pleasant!! There's something I'm forgetting... I'll ETA if I think of it. Off to go exercise, then do some laundry and book reading (Which Lie Did I Tell? by William Goldman, and Vellum, by Hal Duncan.)

Are you all happy today?! Do you have something delicious to eat? Something to look forward to? Good music? <3 <3 <3 <3 (Oh, Lynne - I'll have your song in a few hours. It slipped my mind, but I'll get on it now!)

I watched the Emmy's for the fashions (I want to shop where Helen Mirren does - she always looks like a million bucks.)

Also, the cast of Desperate Housewives looked like famine victims. It was scary.

The guy that plays Mohinder on Heroes is smoking hot. No, really.

I was in a horrid, self-indulgent, depressive funk of insecurity (my childhood issues rearing their ugly heads again), but I stopped myself from writing a maudlin and pathetic LJ post (go, me), and instead have turned on music really loud and eaten a piece of the banana bread I made yesterday. So there.

The guy that plays Mohinder on Heroes is smoking hot.

Yes. Yes he is. I wish I hadn't missed him on the Emmy's - might have made more than Lewis Black's 2 minutes worth watching (not that my family watched much...our pain threshold isn't that high).
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:19 pm (UTC)
Ugh - you could see the bumps on their sternums!! I'm so ready for there to be a shift in the publics perception of what a beautiful woman is. I want to point them to Helen Mirren and say "THAT. That is a beautiful woman."

(Oh, no!! Are you feeling better? It might make you feel better to get it out there and let us all love on you! If not, let me love on you now. *LOVES*)
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:33 pm (UTC)
Nah, it's all tied up with my getting ostracized as a kid (oh, yes, I was the 'weirdo' who got beat up all the time - are you surprised?)

And the stupidest things put me right back in that grade-school despair, you know? And then I'm even more depressed that I still haven't left it behind, even if it stays stuffed in a closet most of the time. I couldn't even tell you what it was this morning - probably the look on somebody's face - even among the hippy school parents, I'm a freak. I don't know why it surprises me after all this time.
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:27 pm (UTC)
(I was that kid, too. I was the weird kid fo SHO.)

But you know, you aren't the freak, THEY ARE for all wanting to look like each other. I mean, the next thing they'll do is start wearing black Nikes, you know? You are interesting and FUN and talented and not boring and have something to SAY and have interesting thoughts, and have you tried having a conversation with any of those people? Bores you to tears, doesn't it?

And you know, the Alphas don't like weirdoes. They like cool people. So. *G*
Sep. 17th, 2007 03:08 pm (UTC)
I also put up some new music for perusal and tempting.
Sep. 17th, 2007 04:34 pm (UTC)
I now have 5 tabs open for downloading, THANK YOU!! (You always put up great stuff that I would never otherwise hear, so THANK YOU.)
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:34 pm (UTC)
Did you listen to it? Like any of it? :)Inquiring minds want to know!
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:44 pm (UTC)
I've listened to all of them now, and I like them all, but the surfer/rockabilly sound (perfect description=your post) of Vampire Desire is putting a groove in my step.

Sep. 17th, 2007 09:37 pm (UTC)
Check your email box. :)
Sep. 17th, 2007 09:58 pm (UTC)
Heeeeeee!! I just saw that - THANKS!!

*rocks out*
Sep. 17th, 2007 03:38 pm (UTC)
I didn't watch the Emmy's, but yeah....many award shows seem like one big bore-fest most of the time. But at least people look pretty!.

That actress is Kathryn Morris from Cold Case. EXCELLENT SHOW btw. It's one of the few that is able to kick my ass and often make me cry...usually due to their use of well-picked music and closing "montage". I never would have guessed she had tube boob! At least on the show she never looks that way.

Have fun with your visitors and your upcoming movie! I can't wait to hear about that one, too. Also? MMM, pie! Bake one. Do eeet!
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:20 pm (UTC)
Hmmm... Cold Case. Is that like CSI or something? I have a hard time with those shows, but then, there aren't many dramas I enjoy, truth be told. I'm all goofy like that.

MMMMM PIE. DOesn't there need to be a pie in everyone's Monday today?! *makes it so!*
Sep. 17th, 2007 06:14 pm (UTC)
Well, it IS a procedural, but they don't rely on a lot of CSI-type stuff.

Usually a new piece of evidence comes to light and the team investigates it (a lot of interviews that lead the team to more and more AND MORE suspects lol).

What I like about it is they have flashbacks, always using period sets and music, as well as actors who portray the folks involved in the victim's life at the time of murder, and other actors who look scarily alike playing the "older" versions the detectives interview currently.

Unfortunately, it's not available on DVD due to copyright issues with all the various music the use. Which is kinda silly, since they were allowed to use it as the show airs. *shrug* Anyway, it's on CBS Sunday, and TNT Monday, if you want to give it a shot. :)
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:29 pm (UTC)
I can't promise that I will, as I have issues with procedural-type shows. (I'm not into mysteries, etc., and the only show I've been able to watch that has a Problem To Solve in an Hour type program is "House" because Hugh Laurie is fantastic. *g*)

It sounds like this show is a far cry better than the many many L&O spin offs that all seem like the same damn show over and over again!
Sep. 17th, 2007 03:43 pm (UTC)
I never watch the Emmys (I'm boycotting on Buffy's behalf. I hold grudges), but that dress is just unfortunate.

Another movie? I can't wait to see your bio on IMDB.
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
Boy, you DO stick to your guns, heeee!! And yeah - it's the boobs IN the dress. Why couldn't they tape them up? Yeesh.

I'm waiting, too! They have to confirm all of the details submitted before posting to make sure ST:TNG nerds don't add themselves in, or something. :)
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:38 pm (UTC)
And yeah - it's the boobs IN the dress. Why couldn't they tape them up? Yeesh.

The last few years, I've used the red carpet coverage as an educational tool for the teenager. "See, honey? If you wear a dress like that, you need the proper undergarments."
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:30 pm (UTC)
Yeah - you know what else is a great show for that? Tim Gunn's House of Style (or whatever the name is) on Bravo. The man understands how to put clothes on women's bodies. (Notice I said WOMEN'S bodies, not anorexic 12 year old boys in drag.) I love him and his show.

Sep. 17th, 2007 07:33 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, good point! I'll be sure to watch tonight and not go to bed until after TDS and TCR! I love love love those two.

Oh, is it a beautiful New England fall day? The leaves starting to turn? A nip in the air with the promise of pie? (Can you tell I talked to Jess today? Hee!) But good for you on being so dedicated to your To Do List!! Now you have the day to yourself and the fam without those chores hanging over your head. (I've done that, too, showing up when I'm not scheduled? D'oh!)

I am DYING to hear your thoughts about that book!! I have lots of thoughts simmering at the surface that I need to organize about religion from my visit with my Mormon cousin. (She finally knows now that I am an atheist. ) How cool that so many people want the book! But how sucky that so many people wanted the book! Ha. Feel free to tell me all of your thoughts!
Sep. 17th, 2007 04:40 pm (UTC)
I am so incredibly squicked out by red-dress-woman (I think she's the lead in The Closer, but I could be wrong). Bweeeaaaarrgh! [does Titus shudder of grossed-outedness]

Hooray for wrap-party, and hooray for December flickage!
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:34 pm (UTC)
Someone should have put her boobs in some pie tins, or something. GEEEEZ.

Thank you!! It's very exciting and happy-making to be doing things I love, that's for sure. *G*
Sep. 17th, 2007 04:47 pm (UTC)
::Am scared of the oddly shaped boobs::

I had a similar reaction when I saw that couple (#1 WHO ARE THEY? then #2 there's something...off...about her). But I pinpointed the off-ness to the fact that she seemed to me about 20-something below the neck and 60-something above it.

However, I hadn't noticed the boob-oddities - I was focused on the weird hair - so now my theory is that it's more like she's 60 all over and has a Dorian Gray kind of thing going on. Maybe her painting is more post-modern/Cubist than life-like in flavor and there's more of a connection between how the painting looks and how she looks than happened with Dorian.
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:35 pm (UTC)
OooooOooooooh, I thought the same thing!! Like, there is something VERY TRICKSY about her face vs. her body. We hit pause and examined the screen and discovered the horror. O_O

Ahahahahaha to Dorian Gray.
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:09 pm (UTC)
Are you all happy today?!

ohmygosh Stoney I am so happy today!!!! I went to see an AMAZING concert last night (The Academy Is...) and I am still totally riding the high of its awesomeness. (Though I am hecka tired and kind of worried about crashing at work - especially because i am sore and bruised)

I'm glad you had a good weekend!!!
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:36 pm (UTC)
OH YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! Isn't music the best?! I love having that happy feeling of being filled with good sounds, especially a concert filled with people who love the same sounds as you.

Have you crashed? Can you get some protein and caffeine in your system and ride it out? GO TO BED EARLY, ZOMG. *mothers you and tucks you into your covers*
Sep. 17th, 2007 09:00 pm (UTC)
I have crashed a little. I had a meeting this morning and could not tell you what the heck happened. Which is too bad cause I'm pretty sure I was put in charge of some thing. oops.

sadly caffeine is not an option for me because it makes me uber anxious. i did have some protein at lunch. probably not enough, but some.

Now I am in my office and am completely useless for work. uselessuseless. I am going to try to motivate enough to send some emails but that may be the extent of my ability to function today.
Sep. 17th, 2007 05:15 pm (UTC)
Ryan Seacrest puts my teeth on edge, so I gave the Emmys a pass. Sorry I missed the unfortunate boobs, though. They look worth watching in action. Spooky McSags Alot!

I made tilapia en escabeche yesterday, so that's what I'm having for breakfast. Mmmm, Peruvian food.
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:37 pm (UTC)
He's uh... He's something, isn't he?? Spooky McSags Alot, hahahaha! Tubey VonBreastrolls. The Lady of Hangtits. Heee!

Sep. 17th, 2007 05:55 pm (UTC)
Man! I wish I could have stayed longer at the wrap party. Do you have any pick-ups?
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:40 pm (UTC)
I know!! You were there for a blink of an eye, what up with that?! *hugs you* I don't know if I do yet. I know Chris does, but I've not been told anything. Oh, I friended you over at MySpace, btw. I pretty much use my journal there to read Beth's blog, etc. And now to see your awesome pics! *g*
Sep. 17th, 2007 06:41 pm (UTC)
length and boobs in the same sentence. LOL!!! I <3 you! :) I watched a bit of the emmies and then a bit of the post show on E! because I was waiting for Ebert & Roeper which was running late due to various sports. :) It was, um, interesting...
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:39 pm (UTC)
Yeah - you do NOT want to have your boobs referred to as LONG, is my strong opinion. :D

I missed the post show, but I knew it would replay a MILLION TIMES so I can catch it. Your opinion on me catching the post show is do watch for the weird, or avoid because of the weird?

*bites nails*
Sep. 17th, 2007 08:00 pm (UTC)
Yay, glad you had a fantastic visit with your weekend. Any time good food involved is always an A+ time.

Another movie in December? Sooooooo, do I need to start updating my resume for the personal assistant job? That's AWESOME, honey! Soon I'll be able to throw your name out in conversation and brag to people that I know you. \0/

Sep. 17th, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
*CLINGS TO YOU* DARLING. We need a long phone call tonight, yes?? Do you have the strength to make it through the rest of this craptastic afternoon? *hugs you tight*

You know what would be awesome? To have you be my PA/tutor/au pair so I can drag the children with me everywhere. Um... let me rethink that. :D

ILU LEE. I need to hold your hand and listen to EVERYTHING with you: also, WHOOOOOO 'BAMA! (And let's hear it for UT - that was a GREAT game - and for the Cowboys, uh huh!)
Sep. 17th, 2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
YES, LONG PHONE CALL TONIGHT = OF THE GOOD. You let me know the best time to call you tonight. Sorry I didn't call last week--throat was killing me so all you would have heard was ". . . " But now my voice is back--although a little on the gravely side. I'm trying to go for "sexy cool Kathleen Turner-in-Body Heat" but I'm afraid I just sound like an 80-year-old phlegmy smoker.

HOLY SMOKES, ALABAMA. I didn't know if I would survive that game. We were doing so well and then OF COURSE we started slacking. But then! But then we came back and won OMG WE WON WE WON WE WON!!! <---- That was pretty much the entire refrain I yelled while running up Maren's stairs to get out on their porch in order to call my mom and celebrate. (I. . . may have been a tad obnoxious.)

GREAT weekend for college football: Alabama, UT, Tennessee got SPANKED, ND sucked Michigan's cock, Auburn lost. . .

Sep. 17th, 2007 08:35 pm (UTC)

The cheerins hit the hay at 8pm, so 8 - 8:30? I can call you, you call me, just whatever's easiest.

And I was SO HAPPY about Tenn. and that Michigan turned it around because what the HELL with their first game of the season?! And I'm disappointed AGAIN in FSU. They seem to be continuing last year's suckitude. BAH.
Sep. 17th, 2007 08:42 pm (UTC)
Excellent use of arrows!
Sep. 17th, 2007 09:59 pm (UTC)
Hahahahaha! DUDE. Those tubes are WEIRD.
Sep. 17th, 2007 09:23 pm (UTC)
Life is fine, people. Life is fine.

\o/ YAY!

We can hook up next year and you can introduce me to all your movie star friends and I can sell cocaine to them to afford my $500 back alley boob job and then I can snort the cocaine off them since they'd be around my shoulders, while simulataneiously pointing all over the compass, and then I can become anorexically skinny and get a job at the Emmys presenting awards.

Sep. 17th, 2007 10:00 pm (UTC)
I FULLY APPROVE THIS PLAN. Also, it's for certain that you're coming next year?! You know that you have a place here to stay, if you journey this far, and I'll stalk you come out to where ever you end up and take you out to eat a few times. *G*
Sep. 17th, 2007 10:56 pm (UTC)
I now have one third of my airfare so I could fly today and get dropped off somewhere in the Pacific for sharks to gnaw on my carcus - best. weight loss. holiday. ever! September next year I'll be flying out, though hopefully not this time sitting next to a 6'4 dutch guy who had such bad body odour you could taste it in your mouth. I almost threw up just to clense my palate. Ewwwww!

I'm going to jump out of the plane and parachute into your backyard, though considering it looks like it will be into a giant brain eating spiders web you better have a can of insect repallant and a bottle of tequilla ready and waiting for me.
Sep. 17th, 2007 11:49 pm (UTC)
*claps hands!!*

I'll get to painting a huge red "X" on my roof to help you locate which building to plummet to your horrible, horrible, crippling detriment ASAP.

(Oh, ack to the stinky person. That happened to me on a flight from Frankfurt and I was miserable for 10 hours. Every time the woman shifted I could TASTE her stink. *vomits*)
Sep. 17th, 2007 11:25 pm (UTC)
*cries at the scary tube breasteses*

I had stir fry for dinner! Yum!

It was so lovely talking to you this morning, Ms. Stoney. <3 <3 <3
Sep. 17th, 2007 11:44 pm (UTC)

Ooooh, stir fry!! We're having vegetarian burritos for din - if you were here you could have one! But I bet your tum is full of delicious stir fry veggies. Nom nom nom nom!

Sep. 18th, 2007 12:03 am (UTC)
YUM! I heart of the burritos!!! And I know your fixin's are made of awesome.

The stir fry, sooooo goooood, because it was made up of what they had in the stir-fry area, plus stuff I found at the salad bar -- the addition of tofu would have made it perfect, but I am not complaining!

ILU! With kisses! And frosting!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
