What Do I Search On YouTube? Well…

After the extraordinary multitude of hideous dresses at the Academy Awards last night, I went to YouTube this evening to search up my favorite Dior fashion show which is fashion-therapeutic for me.  Then I looked back at the search box and what I had typed.

For the record, I was trying to say, “dior spring couture 2011.”  Still, YouTube didn’t seem to care.  It completely ignored that fact that my head is quite possibly screwed on the wrong way and showed me Dior shows, just like I wanted.  But I felt a little head-screwed-on-wrong all the same.

I have now defaced a Galliano dress in the name of this blog.  You are welcome to thank me, y’all.

Speaking of the head problems?  Let’s talk Academy Awards for a moment.  Suffice to say, padded shoulder jackets are terrible- looking at you, Glenn Close- and Howard Shore’s soundtrack to Hugo is one of the greatest in recent history.  But Billy Crystal is always funny and I got 17 out of 24 of my predictions right, which won me my video rental store’s contest and a boatload of free movies, so all is well in the world.

And now that award season is all finished, I am free to attempt a tan (ha!) and talk about Tim Lincecum’s back (problems) 24 hours a day and seven days a week.  In between glaring pointedly at photos of Brian Wilson and simultaneously hoping that he and all the endlessly iffy-somewhat-slightly-injured players are really ready for Opening Day.  Spring Training is just the practice run.  I am terribly jittery about the real thing.

And that Giants-Rangers match-up on March 23rd?  Yeah.  I’m jittery about that too.  My double/triple/quadruple life can be exhausting, you know.  And YouTube always ends up taking the brunt of it.  Someday I will put an apple (not Apple-apple, just a plain ol’ red thing, people) on its desk and thank it for its hard work.

    Isn’t there a Giants/Rangers series during this year’s regular season? Generally, interleague is west v west this year, with my Dodgers coming to Oakland June 20 – 22 to try to avenge a sweep six years ago including a 17 inning loss.

      Yes, indeed- the Rangers are coming into town on June 8th, I believe, which will also be Not For Sale Campaign night at the ballpark, so I am definitely planning on going. And if my hot air balloon is warmed up in time, I will also be in Arizona for the March game :)

    Oh, and BTW, I’m trying to imagine that dress with shinguards.

  3. What did you think of Natalie Portman’s gown? I am on the fence. I think it was just poorly accessorized. I love shiny diamonds, but that necklace was mismatched with the vintage gown. Then again, if she had a Phillies cap on maybe I wouldn’t be complaining…

      I didn’t like Natalie’s dress very much (although I do love Dior). I thought the polka-dots were too small, I didn’t love the color and patterns are just so hard to pull off, no matter what. The accessories were definitely stylistically off, too. I thought Penelope Cruz was the best-dressed and I liked Michelle William’s gown as well, but that’s just me :)

      And wouldn’t it have been awesome to see someone in a baseball cap? One of the people from Moneyball should totally have done that!
