Are you excited with anticipation just like me? Yes – “Oscars Academy Awards Show” – is my favorite TV program and no matter where in the world I find myself and no matter what time of the day or night it is broadcasted (live!) you can be assured I’ll be watching it. And please don’t phone me as I will not respond to your call… Attired in my comfy gray sweats or in my cozy flannel Pjs with the cute doggies design on it and with a glass of Pierre Jouet my favorite bubbly – I’ll be watching it.. I have not missed it for the past 30 years.
And I have not given up on my dream of one day attending in person the Oscars Awards Ceremony at the architecturally stunning Dolby Theater in Hollywood as a guest of Daniel Craig, Steven Spielberg, or my new movie idol Timothee Chalamet (sorry Daniel and Steven). The gorgeous evening gown by Rabih Kayrouz, the fabulous fashion designer I recently discovered at the glamorous fashion show staged by the San Francisco Ballet’s Auxiliary is hanging in my walk-in closet and ready to be worn by me should I get a last minute urgent call from Daniel, Steven or Timothy to fly to Hollywood and be their date for the Oscar Awards Show. Hhmm.. Some dreams do come true… I am an optimist!
