You know that one scene in The Hangover, where the main characters wake up from a heavily alcohol-induced stupor, having the king of all "wtf?!" moments? I vaguely can relate to that feeling... minus the booze, Vegas, and major WTF... actually ok. I can relate to it in the fact that I would realize how much time has gone after avidly youtubing for hours.
It's just like this particular MLIA that my friend Michelle said was "so US."
"Today, I started doing my Italian homework. Half an hour later, I realized I was in the middle of watching a Youtube video about chameleons. I have no clear recollection of how I ended up there. MLIA"
Instead of chameleons, I found myself watching speeches-- the type where actors/actresses dress up all fancy and endlessly thank people. Some were amusing, all laid down the typical "you're amazing, an inspiration to us all," and the select few either confused me or entertained/touched me more than they should (the Jamie Foxx Oscar speech always makes me tear up a little at his story-- what's wrong with me??). Here are some of my favorites.
I love Eddie Izzard. His Sean Connery impression seems to have been a hit with 007 himself.
I'm also just a fan of Steve Martin. 2:35-3:11 cracks me up.
Have you ever delved into the world of Youtube, only to resurface hours later? Or is winter break just getting to me?
OK, this isn't a speech, but it's Kate Winslet doing improv as a dog. Come on.
