Emmy Dish!

SALLY!!!!! Woohoo!!!! I was so happy when they called her name. She deserved it. I'm a bit sad that the tape delay edited out her speech because of what she was saying (I want to know what she said, dammit!), but what are you going to do?

Felicity Huffman was robbed. Robbed, I tell you! But, like I said yesterday, the odds that she would have won a comedic award for Bang (and she apparently submitted it, if the clip when the category was announced indicates anything) were pretty damned tiny. I just wish people would stop primping up America Ferrara. I like her, but she's not amazing.

You know who else isn't amazing? Katherine Heigl. I was amused when she corrected the voice over lady. I was amused when she gave her speech (my own mother said I didn't have a chance in hell!) HA! I wasn't amused when her name was called. Because she didn't deserve it. Am I happy for her that she won? Sure. But this is just like Natalia Livingston winning over Robin Christopher to me. Shouldn't have happened. Chandra should have had the award. I think the academy was just trying to hit up a demographic, and Katherine is an 'it' girl because of Knocked Up. You know what else sucked about her? Her lipstick. My god, it was like looking at a clown. Either that or she just had huge lips that I never noticed before in my life.

I wasn't surprised at all that the Sopranos won best drama (token win), but I was surprised that James and Edie didn't win the acting awards (pleasantly surprised). I hate that they handed out so many token wins to the show, though. I mean, honestly, the writing award? For the series finale?

A lot of the telecast could have been done away with. Kanye's appearance dragged on FOREVER and did absolutely nothing. It didn't even provide a lick of comedy. Ryan in a fruity outfit? Pass. I did like the Jersey Boy thing, but my mother was in here, sauced off her ass, and crying about how beautiful it was. Stupid woman. And it dragged on SO long. 10 minutes over. The hell is up with that?

I liked the Macy's commercial with all the celebs. It was funny. The first time I saw it. Then they kept on showing it again and again and again and again and again and again, which made me go "ENOUGH ALREADY!"

But, anyway, congrats to all the winners. Even if I don't think you should have won. Except you, Sally. You rock.

PS: Thanks for snubbing Heroes. Love, Me.

Now that's comedy...

My big 7 year old pit bull just got hissed at by a 3 week old or so kitten, and then he ran away with his tail between his legs.

Fear the kitten, Boris. Fear the kitten!

Further proof that I have NO shame!!!

So, at work, we get to pick our custom names for our lab coats, right? There are a few themes. Favorite Comedians. Favorite Super Heroes. Favorite Cartoon Characters. Since all my favorite comedians are females (and I really wouldn't want to be walking around with Loni Love, Margaret Cho or Rachael Harris on my lab jacket... though I would gladly walk around with any of those people in person...) that pretty much nipped that one in the butt. Then there's the Super Hero thing. Again, I like the womens. Five years ago I would have gone with Cyclops. But now he's a cheatin' whore who don't deserve my love. Then there's Iceman, who be a whiny little bitch who don't deserve my love.

So, that leaves cartoon characters. And just who do I love the most out of all cartoon characters? That's right, Pluto. Okay, so it's a bit of a double standard, given that I just I don't want to be walking around with a woman's name on my lab coat... but it works two ways. Pluto the dog is what 99.99% of the people will think. And I'm okay with that. I do love that dog, after all. But those of us in the know? We know it's all about my beloved Sailor Pluto. It stops the questions altogether and allows me to save face while all the while paying tribute to my beloved.

Set. Has. No. Shame.

In other work related news: Did about half an hour of OT today, which sucks. Peggy hurt her back or her hip or something falling down so she couldn't make it today, which meant that I had to pick up the slack doing C of A's. Sunny did a majority of them, thankfully, but he had to go to some damned meeting... and then there were some I couldn't do (because I can't make them from scratch, I can only edit what is already made, and I don't want to learn how to make them from scratch because, seriously, that shit hurts my head) so he had to do them. Then I had to go and put them on the boxes for shipping which is always a pain in the ass. Ultimately, I didn't even start doing labels until about 3:30, an hour later than I'm 'supposed' to. I got to take like 5 minutes of my afternoon break, which I used to check my e-mail, and I generally wasn't in a very happy mood.

Seriously, it pisses me off to no end how I'm always the one that can cover so many people's collective asses when it comes to shit like that, but there ain't a damned person who can cover my ass? What's up with that? Obviously, the people whose asses I'm covering for can cover mine, but they're not available to cover my ass if I'm covering their ass, now are they? I really should talk to the boss... but I won't.

On the plus side: the consensus is in: Katherine Heigl shouldn't have won that emmy. It does please me when people agree with me. Especially when I think I'm right. Chandra should have won. Yup.

Oh, and Vanessa Williams looked like shit in that dress. Mmmhmm.
