The Movies and The Awards!
I love Oscar Night, even when I'm not celebrating the fifties! But for today, I tried to celebrate the art and glamour of 1950's movies, all day! In the afternoon I attempted to watch the Oscar winning movie filmed during my birth year, that earned Best Picture at the 30th annual Academy Awards. I tried. I really did. But I have never been to sit through Bridge On the River Kwai. I love the whistling and I love the jungle, but I was restless and gave up. Instead, I just waited for evening and put on some 1950's costume bling and white gloves and enjoyed popcorn with the Awards.
BTW, wearing white gloves is a very good diet technique. It's such a lot of trouble removing your gloves to nibble, so you are inclined to eat less. Of course I solved the problem by removing the gloves for good... and stuffing myself silly..
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
