Oscar Fever!

Dear Readers,

The Academy Awards take place this Sunday, and I couldn't be more excited! It's one of my favorite nights of the year.

Dizzie: Boss, can I talk to you?

Lilly Faye: Sure, Diz. I was just filling in my Oscar ballot. Would you like to place a bet in the office pool?

Dizzie: I thought there were only two of us working on the blog.

Lilly Faye: That's right. You and me. That gives you a fifty-fifty chance of winning the entire pot.

Dizzie: No, thanks. I can't afford it. About the Academy Awards, Boss....

Lilly Faye: They're on Sunday night. Don't forget to watch. I'm warning you right now, if Pharrell Williams doesn't win the Best Original Song Oscar for "Happy," I'm going to be one very un-happy Poodle.

Dizzie: I was thinking maybe I could go to the Academy Awards ceremony, and report from the scene, in person.

Lilly Faye: That's crazy talk, Diz. After your Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show debacle, I can't risk the blog's reputation by sending you out on your own again. 

Besides, how would you get there? If you can't afford a measly five dollars to join the office betting pool, you certainly can't afford a ticket to California.

Now, the oddsmakers have Cate Blanchett way ahead in the Best Actress category, but I really like Sandra Bullock. 

What do you think, Diz?

Dizzie: Sandra Bullock played a well-adjusted scientist who followed the rules. Cate Blanchett's character was off her rocker. Crazy always wins.

Lilly Faye: You're probably right.

Dizzie: See you Sunday, Boss.

Lilly Faye: Now where did he run off to? I was about to ask him to bring me fresh water and biscuits.

Oh well, this gives me a chance to watch Pharrell's "Happy" video again. Here's the link, if you want to watch it with me.
