Week-End Ramblings

Did you watch the Oscars last Sunday? What did you think of the snafu with the Best Picture Award? I’ve been a rabid fan of the Academy Awards for as long as I can remember and I have never seen anything like that before! And it was because the guy from PriceWaterhouseCoopers was too busy tweeting to pay attention to  what he was doing. He’s a managing partner. As a person who used to work for a Big 6 (it was the olden days, now it’s the Big 4) accounting firm, I can tell you, that is a high level position – one of the highest. He’s not a naive little staff accountant. You would think he would be more professional than to be deliriously star-struck by Emma Stone.

Huge side note: I actually dreamed of working at Price Waterhouse solely because I wanted a shot at getting to count the Oscar ballots. Then in college, I discovered that I hated auditing and changed my focus to tax accounting. So my Oscar dreams were dashed.

In other news, I got my bi-monthly Stitch Fix box which is always fun. You can check it out on yesterday’s Stitch Fix Saturday post. There’s not much else to report. I spent much of the week up at the Mayo Clinic for my yearly check-up. Not exactly a dream vacation!

How was your week?

    The Oscar screwup (or snafu) was pretty bad. It was embarrassing. And bad for both films involved. I still can’t imagine the guy not paying attention when it’s such an important thing, duh. Anyways, sorry your Oscar dreams were dashed but that’s a funny story, LOL.
