Picture 3.pngI stay up way too late for the Oscar Awards every year, even though I need to know who wins Best Film Editing about as badly as I need to know how much it costs to join The Short Hill Spa.

I’ll be home rooting for Slumdog Millionaire. The Clairidge sold out yesterday when I saw it for the early bird matinee. I just hope M.I.A. performs Paper Planes, so I can swagga like her.

I will swagga at home. Alone. My kids will be sleeping. This actually sounds fun to me–watching the Oscars at home in the quiet of my Bloomfield Avenue house. I guess that means I’m mature (i.e. boring) and a parent (i.e. my social life is over).

But I’d still like to know: Are there any local parties? Or do you prefer to stay home–and awake way past your bedtime–too?

    I am going to a party. But if you don’t have a party to go to, it’s a good TV to do other stuff to: pay bills, iron, shorten pants.

"Even the New York Times noticed how many women from Montclair were marching (but somehow ended up focusing instead on how the men folk would manage??)" Yes, totally! Very bizarre.
