The moment I saw the three giants of cinema direction on stage, I and everyone else knew that this year the Oscar was going to Martin Scorsese. It was certainly about time, if not long overdue, and it was one of my only right predictions this year!!! So the best picture of 2006 was “The Departed”, which I still haven’t seen! It’s funny how all the films starring Leo win big at the Academy Awards… He’s got the right charisma and acting chops I guess…
The Oscar party at Sam and Talayeh’s was fun… Not to mention that I lost not only among friends, but in the “Oscar Prediction Contest” – a family tradition going back several years – to Judge Saber (i.e. mon papa) and my movie buff sis… In my defense, that’s all because I haven’t been to any movie theatre since the TIFF 2006 and somehow stuck with those few foreign films this year… Seems I have some major catching up to do!
Marj, who won the contest last night, was over the moon… How on earth she knew who would win the best short film documentary or sound editing is beyond me!
So I got to the hotel at 6:30am, like the early bird that I am (yeah, right), in the slushiest and most miserable weather ever. Honest to god, I’d never seen snowflakes that big…
Back at the office now, sitting behind this “stupid box” again, blogging and eating before starting real serious work… The good news is that the event’s turnout was great… That’s only because (plug alert) Adobe products are the coolest and they always win over the giant flakes!
Let’s give credit to the organizers as well. 😉

When you are suffering from the worst hangover in the history, BLOG and it will automatically change your mindset…
It will help to forget about what may have gone wrong and how to focus on what is still going right… It will also help to think happy and be happy!
Yes, it’s really that simple…
People are different… It’s up to us how to deal with them; that is, if we ever want to!
Some are unsure of themselves… Some don’t have any faith… Some are hugely imaginative… Some want to be helpful but are not… Some do too much and some too little… Some crave surprises… Some are unshakable… Some think that they can get something out of nothing… Some are worrying all the time… Some get on your nerves…
And some, like me, are completely out of focus today… Well, much better than yesterday, but my productivity is still not at its maximum, which kinda sucks… Especially during this busiest time…
Back to some serious work… Focus, come my way, please… Will blog more later…
