When: Saturday before last // Weather: 60s // Real life: haircut, brunch, and I don’t remember what else
I know I took these photos the day I got my haircut (because why else would my hair look so good). And I’m pretty sure I got brunch afterward. But for the life of me I can’t remember what else I did on February 18, and for once I didn’t post anything on Instagram. I hope I had fun?
I do remember what I did on February 26, though. I had a small get-together to watch the Oscars, and I served themed cocktails. One the menu: the “Lion,” a gin mule so strong you won’t be able to find your way home, and the “La La Land”… It was just a middle-shelf champagne cocktail, but we told everyone it was the greatest drink ever.
I don’t mean to be too harsh on La La Land (the movie, not the drink) – I thought it was great, just not that great. Not worth 14 Oscar nominations, that’s for sure. I had already watched the Golden Globes, and I made it all the way to midnight watching the Oscars, so when Faye Dunaway announced La La Land…I turned off the TV.
I KNOW. But it was late and I’d already seen a dozen La La Land acceptance speeches. I’m still so mad I missed seeing the cluster live. This was my first real experience with FOMO. Needless to say, I will still remember Sunday night 10 days from now.
