Oh, yeah. BIG HUGE OSCAR WIN for my sister last night. To the so-many-of-you who have sent happy notes of congratulations, my thanks, and hers, too. At some point, I might add to this post a video of me watching her win – but try to imagine me screaming, wide-eyed, “Wooooooooooo! That’s my SISTER! THAT’S MY SISTER!!!!” and you’ll basically get the idea.
(and to all you parents out there: if you’ve got a kid who pretends to do commercials for Wella Balsam shampoo in the bathtub, or who insists on wearing the same Laura Ingalls costume to school EVERY SINGLE DAY of third grade, then cheer. Because you just might see that kid on the red carpet someday).
