I saw Dream Girls a few weeks ago. Not bad. There has been a LOT of award talk over the actors. Golden Globes, SAG Awards, Oscar, Pulitzer. It's good to see American Idol reject Jennifer Hudson totally blowing people away and capturing a dream. GREAT to see Eddie Murphy in a role in which he's not talking to animals. But to me, Hollywood has totally missed the boat here. To me the most important moment of the movie, the scene that absolutely stole my heart was the scene in which this boy appeared:
Steve Urkel! Steve Urkel! He was in Dream Girls for like 30 seconds. Thirty glorious seconds. Welcome back, Steve. As the S.U.F.C.P. (Steve Urkel fan club president), I would just like to say, “I knew you'd be back.”
Okay, Lindsey Lohan does the peace sign everywhere and that drives me nuts (could your life be any less peaceful? Fix THAT and then we'll talk about the Middle East). But what is Britney trying to do here?
“Like, um…I'll make up my own cool sign. Like double peace, y'all.”
Or “Look, y'all. One hand–two peaces.”
Then again, maybe somebody snapped a shot after asking, “Hey, Brit, how many times have you worn underear in 2007?”
And you know, Jennifer Hudson is not the only one whose dreams have come true. I've waited for mine so patiently. Had so many near-misses–especially lately. I've almost had it in my grasp, only to have it ripped back out again. But this dream came true for me today. (Excuse me, I must wipe a tear.) After MUCH anticipation. After MUCH waiting. After MUCH PRAYER. Here it is:
Yup, got out early today (Wed), have tomorrow off, and Friday does NOT look good either (actually it looks FABULOUS).
And finally, on a serious note, a friend of mine (the girl sends me taped episodes of Gilmore Girls!) and one awesome writer, Sarah Anne Sumpolec, was on the Tyra Banks show this week. As usual, my cable network TOTALLY failed me, and they didn't air it, but lots of people saw it. The episode was about witchcraft. Sarah became a witch as a young girl and continued until God put her under the influence of Christian roommates in college. From what I've heard, Sarah did a GREAT job on Tyra, but as the only Christian and shunner of all things “witch,” she fell under attack on the show and now off. Check out her blog if you're interested in the response (click on “comments” at the end of her blog on the response and check it out.). Seems some “witches” have spread her blog address around and are ganging up on her. Please pray for her. Pray for protection and pray for God to shine through all the darkness out there on her blog. These people are VERY serious about their beliefs. Good thing Sarah is too. Please lift her up.
Off to do a little snow checking and a lot of editing. Oh, all right. I'm off to do a LOT of snow checking and very LITTLE editing. Happy snow day to one and all!!!
