Shout Out to Cash

What can I say? I am completely amazed. My sister Cash and I do Academy Award picks each year, and the person who gets the most right wins a prize. Cash won this year, with an astounding 20/24 correct. Congrats to Cash!

I also had my worst year ever. I am too ashamed to say the score, but let's just say that it was below ten, and that's pretty bad for even me.

This year I didn't really have any picks, though I'm glad Reese won. Saturday night I watched Walk the Line and I thought she was amazing! Didn't see any of the Best Movie noms, so didn't really have an opinion. I probably would have guessed wrong on most of them, too.

Yeah, I hadn't seen many of the movies. If they had really terrible action movies or comedies that got nominated that I get dragged to see, I may have had a better chance at picking the winners, but as it is, I owe her dinner.

Speaking of dinner, how did last night's dinner at your house go?

I think the dinner was fabulous.
I'm sorry to hear that the predictions didn't go as well,
I dind't see anything that could have won,
(except March of the Penguins)
but I did hear that they would probably turn out how they did.

I enjoyed the dinner a lot. What can I say? I think I love dinner parties or otherwise food-related social functions. I discovered that I love Warnser's fresh concord grape juice. It was divine. Everything was very tasty. We need to do something like it again soon.

Julie, I think you should host a soup party sometime. What do you think about that? I'll bring the cream of tomato basil.

julie said...

Yummy! I think it's a great idea. Can I "host" it at your house (my apartment is too small)?

Cardine said...

Well, honestly, I thought your apartment would be fine, but if you want to have it at my house, that's fine, too.

I guess it depends on how many people we're going to invite. And, not everybody has to sit at the table, we do have a living room. Hmmm. I'll think about it. A good idea, I love soup.

Cardine, I like your blog colors - very fun!

Dinner was great! I have a confession: I didn't really understand most of the references to the awards... but I still think you're clever for your creation of them. In other words... if it were possible to get a negative score in the picks you are speaking of, I would have gotten it had I participated.

If anyone wants my option: I would be happy to have people come to our apt. and I would be happy to eat soup, too.
