I have a very busy day ahead, so I guess it's just as well that the Oscars put me to sleep long before the best picture. In 50 years, when people look back, they will be amazed that Beautiful Mind won over Lord of the Rings, but such is the way of Hollywood in perpetuity.
I'm eager to get a lot done today.
