Day Three of Jay home late.

Blecheroo. Tonight is night class for Papa Forderer. I keep looking at the clock. Seven fifteen means I can legitimately put Monty down. Then Lula at eight-thirty. Then Sam at nine.

Then me. On the couch. Like a slug.

I think I may watch "Ray" tonight. I can't believe I am so unprepared for the Academy Awards this year. Usually I make it my job to see most of the best pictures. I think I have actually gone to maybe three movies in the past year. Probably my worst stat since I was like fourteen and didn't have any money for the movies.

When I was eleven I remember going with my big sis Jen and her friend Rosanna D'ariano to the movies. I can't remember which movie we were SUPPOSED to see, because we didn't see that one. We went to see "Little Darlings" with Kristy McNichol and Tatum O'Neill.

I had hardly a clue what they were talking about in that movie. The big 'losing the virginity' contest was completely lost on me. I did (like every other girl on the planet) fall in love with Matt Dillon that day. A one sided romance that lasted at least until The Flamingo Kid.

I kept asking Jen what are they talking about? She shh'd me and told me to watch the movie. After on the bus home I kept asking her questions about the movie. She told me not to worry about it. AND NOT TO TELL MOM WE WENT TO SEE LITTLE DARLINGS. I am pretty sure I kept the secret. Even though my lack of knowledge burned a hole in my young head.

The hole didn't burn for long, though. A few months later Jen had a copy of the book "Forever" by Judy Blume between her mattresses and I got a hold of that puppy and learned myself all there was to know.

And then some.

Big sisters.... The best source of info if you know how to spy.

Ray was wicked good, so was Collateral and some other movie I cant remember the title of.

You're aging us, Amy dear! I too lost my intellectual virginity to Judy Blume. ;o)

I too am totally unprepared for the Academy Awards (like I ever am, really) - but this year? I've been invited to an Academy Awards party?!?! I think I've seen all but, um none of the nominees? well, a couple, but I'm in the dark here. I won't know what the hell's going on.
