Is it really losing if you don't win? Damn Skippy! So, our names weren't called as the winner of last night's Greenlight Award for best series concept for our movie review videos. We had more fun than we thought we would. Even though we were tremendously OVER-DRESSED, we did look dinosaurically fabulous!
SalGal was just gobsmacked at the dirty jeans, tattoos, retro, unwashed hair and black that was so dirty and worn it looked gray. Those film kids! We did meet some very nice yung'uns at the festivities and the awards show, and I passed out so many of our cards that my wrist hurts this morning. We feel like winners because the last thing that was said to us (by the announcer of the winners) as we were leaving the theater was, "You all had a LOT of support from inside the company." And, that just makes me giggle at the visual of those serious people watching our Marie Antoinette video and falling off their chairs laughing! So, we really did win.
You know, Reese Witherspoon is upset, and we should always pay attention to her, don't you think? She's upset and we are too at the fact that children now-a-days never lose anything. They're given a medal or trophy just for 'effort.' Reese said that losing her bid to become a cheerleader in high school helped to shape her life and bring her perspective. Although I don't know exactly how she felt because she was short, blonde, beautiful and perky in high school, I'm sure....I too tried out for the cheerleading squad in junior high school and not only lost but was mocked and reminded that at 5 feet 9 inches, 13 years old, braces, 110 pounds dripping wet and an arm span that rivaled a sandhill crane...I lost by several votes. That helped to shape my life as well, truly. I had to learn how to be funny to get the attention I wanted. How'm I doin with that? Hehehe.
SalGal and I have had our share of wins in our lives. The Ancient One was more likely to dole out the 'well-dones' if we won a swim race or gymnastic routine when we were yung'uns, and truth be told, we do have a BIT of a competitive streak, so we're moving 'onward through the fog' in search of a win at these blogging, video, book categories we now find ourselves in. We'll be sniffin' out the trophies, accolades and...oh, yeah...MONEY, cuz we certainly haven't seen much of THAT for these efforts yet. But, 'Something's coming, something good!'
Thanks for your support of our insanity!
We were not overly dressed we were properly dressed and we looked fabulous. Every one of those filmmakers ought to be ashamed of themselves. They looked like as soon as the award show was over they were going to go back home to the back seats of their cars.
As I said to KK the minute she told me we had been nominated as one of the four finalists, 'We have already won!!' The people at ONNetworks love us and that is just a validation of our superb talents as writers, comediennes and allround lovers of highjinks, tomfoolery and pretty restaurant bathrooms. We think of ourselves as winners and therefor we are. We didn't win this particular award given by the obviously homeless people and that just means the universe has something really magnificent in store for us!!
Losers are people who walk around with their heads down looking at the cracks in the world and that's not us. We look up at the sun on our faces and use SP45. When we are given lemons we go buy caviar and water crackers. Here's the thing...when you've seen the joke, you've seen the truth. WE are here to make you laugh and if we have managed to do that then we win.
Gotta go because we are preparing to make our Easter video and the Easter Bunny is out hiding in our back yard. He's got some splainin' to do...later,
