  Monday Morning Mirth  

I love the Golden Globes! Nothing better for a frigid Sunday night that the warm glow of this nutty awards show…

It just seems so much better than, you know! Even the dresses and glamour seem so much more fine: here is Drew Barrymore in my favorite dress of the evening. (Yes, I’m on a soft lake color blue bend…)

See the entire slideshow here where the fun starts after jLo…

BONUS: handsome men galore (my vote goes to the Mentalist, Simon Baker. What is it about that man?!)

Best Quotes: From my fave, Tina Faye’s holla at the haters, “noted that if ever one begins to feel “too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet, and you can find a lot of people there who don’t like you. I’d like to address some of them now. BabsonLaCrosse, you can suck it.””

From winner Mickey Rourke (Chic Knits favorite King of Skeeves) who’s “frequent use of the word “balls” as a compliment” is perhaps exceeded only by the F-word in a Mamet play…

    Drew looks lovely, she really doesn’t age does she? Good genes.

    Oooh, Simon Baker! I remember watching The Guardian, just a-hopin’ and a-waitin’ during the opening credits for that shot of him SMILING! Good gravy – it’s like the sun coming out on a rainy day.

  3. Rebecca says:

    O, my ladies, you are so right, the smile is to die for; I was beside myself when I found that he was back on TV. But has he lost weight????
    Anyhoo, good times those shows and perfect for knitting away an evening.

  4. Thanks for the link to the dresses! They have gone back to classy (mostly) haven’t they? But there seems to be either form fitting with a big wide bell at the bottom or thigh high slits. I think my favorite was Miley Cyrus, but what was Maggie Gyllenhaal thinking?!?

  5. Angela says:

    Mr. Baker is a handsome devil. But I do love my Mr. Springsteen, who, while not ultra-glam, manages that rumpled, messy-cool look while still appearing to have showered within the last 24 hours. (Mr. Depp, Mr. Rourke, I’m talking to you two. Ick.)

  6. Beth in Seattle says:

    Simon Baker – that smile and when he speaks in his native accent. Swoon. Leonardo DeCaprio – is a MAN now – he looks good. I want to know what Angelina Jolie was thinking with that dress – but her leg looks fabulous.

  7. Donna P says:

    Drew’s dress is TDF, but did she roll around in the limo on the way to the event to get that hair?

  8. Kathy Sue says:

    Drew looks like an honest to goodness grown up lady!

  9. Wanda says:

    I must agree that Simon Baker is a dream boat. I love watching him on the Mentalist. i forgot that he was in Something New. I think I recall seeing The Guardian.
