My First Live Twittering Event..

As you may be aware, last Sunday was the Golden Globes. Yes that was about five days ago. I know I am rather late in getting to it, but it has been a crazy week and I had scheduled posts to ensure that posts happened. So this is late.  Of course that means I had to go back on twitter to see what the heck I had posted, but I pulled off the following gems for you. 

Let me tell you something...live twittering/blogging is not easy. In fact, I can remember very little from the just over three hour awards show because I was too concerned about commenting.  I give props to those that do it on a regular basis (especially people like Andy that save me from having to actually watch the show. I mean besides Andy, who is actually watching Bromance? Jenny?).

So here, without further adieu are actual tweets from that night. Explanations are offered in brackets:

8:06 p.m. okay, Sting looks kind of crazy
8:09 p.m. Springsteen, however, still hot
8:09 p.m. @Catherinette agreed about Mickey. He sure looks that part - washed up wrestler

8:17 p.m. I didn't see this movie, should I? [in reference to The Wrestler]
8:18 p.m. Simon Baker must be short because we all know Eva is and he does not appear to be that much taller than she

8:23 p.m. Who is Demi calling? Her whole family is at the Globes
8:25 p.m. Don Cheadle looks different without hair

8:29 p.m. DEXTER - yes [right before win announced]
8:30 p.m. NOOOOO - He isn't even there to accept. Dexter is THERE. Damn you all! [After someone else won in that category]
8:31 p.m. Okay, at least True Blood won something. All is forgiven. For now. [when Anna Paquin won]

8:33 p.m. Not good hair, Drew. Not good hair. [And what was with the Drew and Jessica Lange love fest? It started when they arrived and continued until they presented and creeped me out!]

8:39 p.m. I don't get the Jonas Brothers phenomenon. I must be old.

8:42 p.m. Rare to see Depp on this side of the pond. Don't I sound so British?

8:52 p.m. I like how Pierce Brosnan appeared to be impressed by Jake #goldenglobes [this is where I decided it would be wise to post to the goldenglobes part of Twitter, only an hour into it]

8:53 p.m. Robert Downey Jr and Brad Pitt at the same table? Yum #goldenglobes

8:56 p.m. not sure I would want to watch a whole movie about hanging chads. Just saying #goldenglobes 
8:56 p.m. Tom does not have time to stop and chat people, he has an award to accept!! #goldenglobes [referring to Tom Hanks trying to get up to the stage while people trying to congratulate him - he practically ran them over]

8:58 p.m. um, how embarrassing. Way to humiliate your daughter Demi. Doesn't she have it bad enough already? #goldenglobes [After Demi took the stage and told Rumer who was a Golden Globe girl, or whatever they are called, to stop hunching. In front of the entire audience. On national TV]

8:58 p.m. RDJ better win!! #goldenglobes [apparently he felt the same way according to some recent blind gossip]
8:58 p.m.a lot of good actors in this category. Forgot about Heath. Damn it! 
8:58 p.m. Of course - go Heath! [a lot happened in this minute]
8:59 p.m. this makes me sad about Heath all over again :( #goldenglobes

9:11 p.m. and John Adams is cleaning house. Never saw it. Of course. #goldenglobes

9:19 p.m. Wow Seth Rogen lost a lot of weight! #goldenglobes

9:22 p.m. I can't just think of David Duchovny the same anymore. All I see is SEX

9:23 p.m. who is the tool that got up and got right in the way of Alec on his way up stage. Could you not have waited a minute to leave your seat ? [Alec Baldwin almost got knocked over on his way up to the stage. And no it wasn't by Tom Hanks]

9:24 p.m.Could those accountants look anymore stiff if they tried? #goldenglobes 

9:28 p.m. WHAT THE HECK Renee? What the heck? Looks SO bad #goldenglobes

9:30 p.m. I almost didn't recognize Megan Fox. She looks...strange. #goldenglobes
9:31 p.m. Why does Terence look so surprised every time Megan speaks? #goldenglobes [he shouldn't have been surprised as they were presenting together. Yet he was. Maybe she wasn't supposed to have any lines?]

9:34 p.m. Love Glenn Close but what the heck is she wearing #goldenglobes

9:44 p.m. Not a big fan of musicals. Except Grease, of course [in reference to Mamma Mia]
9:44 p.m. HI P Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy, Sean Paul - what is your name again? #goldenglobes

9:48 p.m. Tina Fey always looks so humble, even just sitting in the audience #goldenglobe
9:49 p.m. my new catch phrase "Good gravy" I love it! [I immediately forgot this was my new catch phrase and haven't used it since]

10:14 p.m. I hate when the presenters shush the audience. It bugs me. #goldenglobes [apparently I missed the big shush by JLo in the beginning. In fact when I saw her I wondered who she was related to, not even realizing she was Jenny from the Block and all]

10:14 p.m. um, someone just cursed. Oops. #goldenglobes

10:18 p.m. nice Spanish accent Sandra #goldenglobes [pronouncing something in Spanish, no doubt]
10:19 p.m. nice slam to the old men Sandra #goldenglobes [slamming really old men for dating/sleeping with really young girls. You go girl! Er, woman...Sandra...]
10:19 p.m. where is James Franco? So Yummy! #goldenglobes [turns out he was studying and getting an education and all. Good for you James. Priorities, friends, priorities. Now back to my mindless dribble...]

10:29 p.m. um, nobody thought that was funny? That was funny #goldenglobes [Guy Ritchie being fired as Madonna's assistant joke? Totally funny. Not boo worthy really. I love you Sascha!]

10:30 p.m. really? Wait, what category are we in ? #goldenglobes
10:31 p.m. huh. Okay

10:38 p.m. LOL Mark is shorter than Cameron! [yes, Mark Wahlberg is short an Cameron is tall, but still funny to see]

10:39 p.m. Okay, she may really lose it this time #goldenglobes [Kate Winslet's second win]
10: 40 p.m. told you she would lose it #goldenglobes. She beat Angelina! [She immediately forgot who Angelina was]
10:40 p.m. how many times does someone win best supporting actress and best actress? #goldenglobes

10:42 p.m. I wonder what her husband thinks about that comment ;) #goldenglobes [upon Kate declaring her undying love for Leo. Or something like that]

10:44 p.m. they should have dressed like their characters. That would have been fun #goldenglobes [when Mad Men won]

10:46 p.m. thank God. I have to pee

10:52 p.m. I mean is this really the same guy from 9 1/2 weeks? #goldenglobes [again dumbfounded by Mickey Rourke. Then dreaming about that movie. Sigh]
10:53 p.m. does he have gold teeth? #goldenglobes [What up Mickey? What up?]

10:54 p.m. the only winner to get the music. #goldenglobes [turns out wouldn't be the only one, just the first]
10:55 p.m. I wonder how late I will be able to stay up and watch this [didn't realize we were at the end]

11:02 p.m. and more music. Gee - it is best picture, can't he talk. We are all up anyway #goldenglobes
11:02 p.m. I made it through the whole thing!! Yay me! #goldenglobes

and finally, a short time later:

11:33 p.m. told my husband I live tweeted the Golden Globes and he asked if that was boxing. Love him!


*Yes, I knew absolutely nothing about the movies, had not seen most of them, and most of my tweets were about the appearance of people on stage. Shallow? Yes. Fun? Most definitely.  See you at the next award show!

6 important things being said:

saratogajean said...

I hear you! I can't get into Twittering because I think I'd just be twittering about twittering and then walk into a pole or mistakenly eat dog food.

Jamie said...

Rumor Willis does have it rough. She never wears it better, her mom has defied God, and she most likely lusts after her stepfather. By the way, what is a Twitter?

*~Dani~* said...

saratoga - that is why I try not to twitter while walking. It is bad enough when I am just trying to walk and talk on the phone or something.

Jamie - is this MY Jamie? You are right about Rumer, all the way down to her name. Hey do you think if Demi and Ashton had babies they would be cuter? Wouldn't that be a slap in the face to those girls?

And Twitter is like the statuses on Facebook or Gmail but cooler. It is a site where you can say what you are doing in 140 characters or less and follow others to see what they are doing. If you go over to the right side of this blog ----> you will see examples of my twitter. Click on "follow me on twitter" and check out the site. If you decide to join, make sure to follow me because you can never get enough of my thoughts.

*~Dani~* said...

Jamie - I realize now that you may be the former Anonymous. If so, welcome - good to know your name :) If not, just ignore me.

Andy said...

I can't believe I missed this before- I just wanted to say how I love your recap of the event. And Megan Fox did look strange.

I'll likely be doing a recap for the Oscars on Sunday...

And yes, I was about the only person watching Bromance.

*~Dani~* said...

Andy - I cannot believe you missed my witty commentary either! Glad you liked it. Personally, I cannot wait for your Oscar recap. And I just might have to live Twitter it again. Although I almost got carpal tunnel last time.
