It is officially awards season, which means that the Oscars aren't too far off! And this year Jon Stewart is hosting (although I'd still rather see Billy Crystal).
So mark your calendars for February 24--you're all invited to hang out with me! (And maybe this year, more than 3 people will show up.) The red carpet starts at 3 pm; the show starts at 5 pm. Bring a snack, and we'll make a day of it!
