Musings-lite No. 26

The junk drawer of my mind is overflowing so I thought I’d drop a few more of my musings-lite on you.

Remember all the hoop-la. Remember the red carpet? Remember all those gowns that women die for (or gave a thumbs down to)? Remember those female stars decked out with enough jewelry to start a jewelry store chain? Remember the national anguish over who would be nominated and who would win those Oscars this year (2015)? Remember those musical productions that were good enough to rival anything produced for the old movie extravaganzas? By the way, do you happen to remember who won the Oscars for best actor and actress in 2015? Even tougher, remember who won for their supporting roles in 2015? Finally, remember what movie won the Oscar in 2015? …I thought not.

Updated saying: That and $1.75 will buy you a cup of coffee.

Who would have ever thunk: At today’s prices, a gallon of milk costs about $1.30 more than a gallon of gas. I guess cows are more expensive than oil wells.

##

Commercials of the 1950s look nothing like commercials look today. Viewing any of those old commercials makes you think the announcers and actors were just on a smoke break, even if they weren’t holding a cigarette.

##

I wonder how history would have been altered if cell phones and the internet were around in 1765 (the Thirteen Colonies began a rebellion against British rule) or the 1820s (the emergence of a new political system based on very well organized local parties)?

##

Men who always insist on driving when their wives are in the car miss the luxury of casually looking around and seeing things they would never see while driving.

##

I wonder where operas go to die? And why doesn’t the fat lady ever die? You always can see and hear her at any opera.

##

The word ‘whatever’ always seemed to me to have an ominous connotation. It says that whatever the outcome, it won’t be good.
