6 months, the Emmy’s, Life

What a crazy weekend, 6 months with Grant and the Emmy's Bonanza. w00t.

This is slight­ly dif­fer­ent from my usu­al posts, but dammit, this IS my blog. The past few weeks have been crazy-hec­tic, but crazy-good. This week­end, in par­tic­u­lar, was nuts.

On Sat­ur­day, Grant and I offi­cial­ly cel­e­brat­ed our six month anniver­sary. Six months! I try not to write too much about my per­son­al per­son­al life here, but I’m mak­ing an excep­tion because I am just so freak­ing in love. I have nev­er been in a bet­ter rela­tion­ship, nor a more won­der­ful per­son.

We start­ed to kind of have feel­ings for each oth­er at SXSW, but we didn’t act on it until after we got home — you know, want­i­ng to make sure it was for real. It is for real. I am infi­nite­ly grate­ful to have him in my life.

2008 Emmy’s

Tonight, start­ing at 6 PM EDT, I’ll be one of the StyleLis­ters live­blog­ging the Emmy’s pre-show for the new StyleList Blog (nee StyleDash). Tune in if you want to see, intel­li­gent, fun­ny and sassy cov­er­age of what every­one is wear­ing.

For the last few years, I’ve live­blogged the Emmy’s at my old jour­nal. Last year, I actu­al­ly didn’t do it — because I was watch­ing with some­one else, but I tried to post about it using some of the Mac pro­grams (it was how I first tried MarsEd­it, though I have to be hon­est, ME is MUCH bet­ter at Word­Press and oth­er blog­ging engine than Live­Jour­nal, at least when com­pared to the Win­dows stan­dard, Semag­ic), and got just too frus­trat­ed.

I sup­pose you could say the Emmy’s was one of the final cat­a­lysts for me to start my actu­al web­site after years of just putting it aside. After doing work for oth­er peo­ple, it is still insane that it took me so long to get my own pub­lic pub­lic out­er-image intact.

Any­hoo, I’m uber-excit­ed about both join­ing my oth­er SLers to dis­cuss the fash­ion at the Emmy’s. And I might pick up the actu­al show on this blog, depend­ing on my sta­mi­na. I’ll say it right now, if the fuck­ing Amaz­ing Race wins best Real­i­ty Show again, I’ll go apeshit. Like, four years ago, back in the era of Col­in and Christy (best race team EVER), fine, it made sense. But when you com­pare TAR against “Project Run­way” and “So You Think You Can Dance” — shit, even “Top Chef” — it is just nuts. That PR didn’t win was total­ly unfair. And that Cat Dee­ley didn’t get a nod for Best Real­i­ty Host and SYTYCD didn’t get a nom for best real­i­ty show was the snub of the year. There, I said it. Hei­di Klum or bust.

As for the real awards, I’m actu­al­ly quite hap­py with most of the big award cat­e­gories. I think “30 Rock” and “Mad Men” will prob­a­bly win their respec­tive cat­e­gories. I’d pre­fer “Dex­ter” to win over the AMC thing, but I know where this is going and am OK with it. I mean, as long as “Two and a Half Men” los­es, I’m hap­py.

John Adams will sweep the minis­eries awards, just like it did at the Cre­ative Emmy’s — but that is far from sur­pris­ing. It is this year’s big HBO pro­duc­tion. If it didn’t sweep that would be the trav­es­ty.

Part of me would like to see Christi­na Appel­gate win just because I’m a suck­er for a can­cer sto­ry, espe­cial­ly when it hap­pens to some­one as gen­uine­ly fun­ny and seem­ing­ly nice as Apple­gate. Kel­ly Bundy FTW. Though I think Tina Fey or Julia will take it. I’m actu­al­ly fine with any of the lead actress nom­i­nees. The fact that Amy Poehler got a nod for SNL, for Best Sup­port­ing Actress com­e­dy is pret­ty huge too. Like, whoa, what?

Any­hoo, I’m out for now.
