    • 2 Comments
    That is a pretty bold blog title and absolutely had nothing to do with the Oscar itself. But I had very little time last night to watch Oscar, and was somewhat curious about the winners and losers. So I hit up Google and use this search term “Oscar”....

    I considered this evening to be pretty special for me -- it's one of those rare days where I could have dinner peacefully all by myself. Not that I enjoyed eating dinner alone, but sometimes what a geek man wants is simply quiet time with a computer....
