State of Affairs Versus The People’s Choice Awards, Part II

22 Nov

Good morning friends, and welcome back to Monday here at State of Affairs.  Today, Lu Galasso (of Inching Towards Mediocrity) and yours truly are continuing our castigation/mockery/sometimes serious take on this year’s People’s Choice Awards.  Friday we tackled the hilariously-underperforming Movie category, in which I was called out for electing Robert Downey Jr. as king of everything without having seen Iron Man 2.  To my detractors I say this: I couldn’t get my hands on that movie, so I rewatched Sherlock Holmes and my decision stands.  Too bad for you.

We were getting a lot done, but Jim is only recently back from South Africa and I think he came down with a touch of typhoid fever while he was there, so he was a little out of sorts – and I haven’t slept a solid night in over a month – so we decided to take a break and turn on the TV for a while.

As usual, that turned out to be a mistake of legendary proportions.
