The Computer Ate My Homework
Monday I put together an entire "Emmy Fashion Smackdown" blog, with tons of pictures and my charming commentary. Just as I conducted one last spell check, the computer locked-up and after hours of tedious work finding and posting photos, I could no longer open the post. Whenever I tried to open the post, the computer locked-up and I had to shut the whole thing down again. It was with a heavy heart I deleated an entire afternoon's worth of work. I gave-up for the day and tuned into "E! The Fashion Police" to get a blow-by-blow of the Emmy fashion from the professionals.
They were using the same damn stuff I had written about, and lost that afternoon. Stuff about how Christina Hendricks may have been showing too much of a good thing:
and I kinda' thought she looked like she was molting because of the feathers. I also commented that Lauren Graham looked like she'd just come from "Red Lobster". Joan Rivers jumped on that one.
That was MY bit, too, except now no one will know I said it first. Kelly Osbourne seconded my opinion that January Jones' blue dress looked like coffee filters. That was mine first, but it is lost to the ages and I will never get credit. Also the part where I referred to her as "Madonna Smurf" was lost to the ages.
We disagreed on a few things: Their "best dressed" went to Lea Michele; mine went to Kim Kardashian or maybe it was Claire Danes. I don't remember.
I don't remember what else I said. I am sure it is all out there in cyberspace somewhere, I just can't get to it. Like "The Fashion Police", surely I pondered the question of why Kyra Sedgwick didn't bother to comb her hair.
I didn't discuss the men, I do remember that much. All they have to do is put on a tuxedo. How hard is that? Besides, we all know it's all about Clooney. Who gives a shit what the other guys look like?
Who knew -- posting a picture of Clooney kinda' makes me feel better. I picked January Jones as "Worst Dressed"; "The Fashion Police" selected Anna Paquin. We both pondered why she dressed like a bullfighter.
That's all I can remember of my post, and I am posting this before the computer eats it again.
