Again, I have a humdinger of a hangover and red wine lips. Temperance month is not really happening is it? I’m cooking some of Ollie’s Spaghetti Sauce in an attempt to feel better.
It was a wonderful evening last night chez Jean. It was Oscars night, a week after the event but hugely enjoyable nevertheless. We had some Hollywood canapes and a Gloria Swanson Devil’s Food Cake alongside his delicious terrines and little cups of celeriac soup. Cries of “look at his HAIR!” and “what IS she wearing?” filled the air as we had great sport putting our oars in. Ava showed us her lovely new feet with great pride. Beautiful they are too. I bet she can’t wait to get those into a pair of strappy sandals for spring.
I can never see a terrine without thinking of Ava and her hospitalization due to sliding on a terrine. Ha ha! I must get her to tell me the story again, I’m sure I’ve altered it in my mind but she almost definitely ended up with a terrine shaped bruise on her bum.
Talking of bruises, the lovely Preston got me a ticket to a special screening of the new roller derby movie “Whip-It” on Saturday night. I loved it. Juliette Lewis rocked as Iron Maven and it was great to see some familiar faces amongst the roller girls in the audience. RAWHIDE!
