Project 12 : Love or Leap

There was a theme choice this month, but since I couldn't choose - I combined them!

I was planning on taking a picture of a good friend's engagement ring as the topic for my photo this month but the timing for that didn't work out and after thinking about it more 'Love or Leap' didn't necessarily mean that a photo 'pre' leap was necessary, haven't we all leapt into love at some point?

So there you have it, the proof that a year and a half ago on this past Valentine's Day, I too made that leap!

I don't know what is going to happen with Project 12 as there have apparently been accessibility issues for some people and things are changing to accommodate this. I haven't had any issues and found the system pretty user friendly for me, which was part of the reason that I elected to join up. I hope, for that reason, that the changes don't impact me too much and that I can continue to participate... I'll know more tomorrow.

Another thing; about that whole Oscar ballot? I suck! Seriously, the mister beat me for a second year in a row, but it wasn't difficult... I got 5. Yes, FIVE... out of twenty four!!! Oh dear.

A fly-by post for Oscar Sunday 2012

Once again this year the mister and I are continuing with our new Oscar tradition, like we did here.

I'm sure I'll do about as well as I did last year, save of course for The King's Speech that kept me afloat (no way that movie wouldn't have won!) but it's still fun to watch and weigh in on all the 'movies that matter'.

I for one, love the glitz, glamour, and old Hollywood of it all but I also know that it isn't for everyone. We like our little foray into film critiquing and hopefully this really will be a tradition that we can stick to.

As for the ballots we are using this year, they came from another blog that I frequent; How About Orange. If you head over there to grab some of your own, check out the Oscar bingo cards as well, while your there!

I hope if you are planning to watch, that you enjoy it and play along too. Hopefully I'll score a little higher than I did last year (but I won't be putting any money on that one)!

So who do you think will run away with best picture this year? The Artist? The Descendants? Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close? The Help? Hugo? Midnight in Paris? Moneyball? The Tree of Life? or War Horse?

...and better yet, which one was your favourite?
