Time wasters: Oscars edition


Thank goodness it's Friday. If you need to kill a little time waiting for the weekend to get started, try these Oscar-related quizzes:

Guess the dress: Identify the actress wearing each gown.

What's Your Red-Carpet Style Personality: Find out which celebrity is a match for you. Apparently I am "Jennifer Lawrence aka The Sexpot Next Door." Yep, that's me.

Test your Oscar knowledge: The Chicago Tribune's annual trivia quiz.

Which 2014 Best Picture Nominee Are You: A crowd pleaser or an indie darling? I got Her. "At your best, you’re quirky and charming. At your worst, you’re a real downer to be around." Fabulous.

The Oscars: Can You Complete the Speech? Fill in the missing words.

And don't forget to download your printable ballot and bingo game for Sunday's telecast. Have a fun weekend!

You might be a sexpot (yikes... don't tell Alex!!), but I'm glad I haven't seen you at your worst! This winter is enough of a downer without having your worst around. ;(

Mum/GOLD!

Jessica Jones said...

Gold? Is that what color dress you're wearing Sunday?

Grandma G said...

Yes! Didn't I show it to you?!

NO. It means I beat everybody else to the podium. I also get bronze. So ha!

Leigh said...

Just wanted to pop in and say love your blog and have enjoyed following all your new house adventures. One of my favorite parts though is reading all the little notes from your mom. So very cute :)

Jessica Jones said...

Oh man. She's gonna get a big head now.

Grandma G said...

It's already big. I'm the only reason people keep coming back here, y'know... I have a lot of fans!

Okay. That was my second "untruth" for the day. But you've gotta quit calling me as soon as you publish a new post, just to make sure you'll get at least ONE comment. ;)))

Jessica Jones said...

Fine. I'll stop paying you, too.

Grandma G said...

Oh, shoot. I guess I blew that one.

Anybody need a blog commentor???

Leigh said...

Oh my goodness, too sweet. You two are a good pair :)

LiEr said...

Apparently I'm JLaw as well. And I didn't even know who the shoe people were in the quiz. Why didn't they have flip-flops-with-bling?

Jessica Jones said...

LiEr, you sexpot, you.

dawn said...

I'm Cate Blanchett aka Edgy Glam.

I was assuming "statement shoes by Nicolas Kirkland" meant Keens sneakers.

Sadia Rony said...

Great Post...... Thank you for sharing your experiences.

Laura said...

Fun ideas!!
Can't wait to play Oscar Bingo!

dc said...

Another sexpot next door, who knew? Does Nicolas Kirkland design converse because that's what I wore to Carnegie Hall a few weeks ago. :)

KV said...

Thanks for Oscar Bingo. It was a low key party with just one friend, but we had a blast using your Ballot and Bingo sheets. :)

Unknown said...

Thanks for Oscar Bingo....our guests LOVED it!!

Teresa Huang said...

Adding my thanks to the list for your Oscar bingo & ballot! They added so much to our party and I came off like a rockstar host. I pointed out to everyone, of course, that I found them on a blog called How About Orange.

I've been browsing your design work too - so beautiful! I look forward to having a reason to hire you someday. Thanks!

Jessica Jones said...

Thank you!

Usually on the bingo cards, the middle square is a "FREE" square.. Maybe put something obvious? Like that "Mandatory academy member presentation"..

Jessica Jones said...

I made it a free square for the last 5 years and almost put that exact thing in the middle this year! But at the last minute, I took it off just to make it a little harder. Maybe next year I'll put it back...
