Truth Is Thursday--Skin, Single, and Harry Potter
Truth Is: Could someone please tell my skin that you can't decide to be dry and yet still have the nerve to require blot powder by late afternoon?
Truth Is: It seems like everyone is getting married or having babies. A fellow 30-something singleton said everyone around her is getting engaged, married, or pregnant except for her. I might shouldn't have replied with, "Soon we'll be the only singles in the world." I meant it as a joke. By her reaction, I'm not thinking she got the joke part.
Truth Is: I have to concur with fellow singleton--everyone is getting married and/or pregnant, including one of the most vile excuses for a human being I have ever known, and I don't say that lightly. Seriously, how do women like that get a man to fall in love with them? Because when I say vile, I mean VILE.
Truth Is: I really need to start dating again. I've been kind-of hibernating this winter. I blame sports (I mean, really, am I supposed to give up a Saturday night LSU game for a date that has a 50/50 chance of being good? Not on your life. See, I'm so loyal!). Truth is, I really just don't like dating. From what I hear, most people don't care for it. It's just that nine times out of ten, dates are more like bad dreams disguised as hope.
Truth Is: Really, really sad that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II did not get nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture, particularly since they could have included another film on the list. The Harry Potter series has made history; what the series achieved is truly phenomenal, so maybe it doesn't really need an award (but I sure wanted to see them get nominated for the big one--of course, I'm a fan, so...lol).
Still, I do think it's kind-of a travesty that Alan Rickman did not receive a supporting actor nod for his role as Severus Snape. He. Brought. Snape. To. Life. No one could have been Snape, no one. And his final stand as Snape was exquisite, true perfection (cried my eyes out). Granted, I have always loved Alan Rickman, but this is one omission I just don't understand.
Deathly Hallows, Part II was nominated for Art Direction, Makeup, and Visual Effects. I hope, hope, hope they walk away with one of these. It would be the perfect way to close a truly spectacular series.
