Just In Time!

Oh thank god! The well that was the Golden Globes had just about run dry. I had pored over every fashion stitch and mis-step, I had chuckled (cynical and knowing as I am) about the 90 member "Hollywood Foreign Press" feeding off of American studio money while awarding prizes to non-American actors and movies. I had wrung every drop of excess and snark out of "Miss Golden Globes"--isn't that J.Lo's title-for life?

Face it. I had used it up. No more highs to be gotten from the remaining husks of that event.

So now what?
