I've won my first Oscar!
My presumptuous headline aside (really...should we assume that I will win another? The answer is yes), I was honored with an Academy Award this evening!
It came via the lovely Sherry Lansing's acceptance speech for the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. In her speech she shared her Oscar with teachers, who are, "the ones who truly never give up on kids."
I'm paraphrasing. I wish I could find the text of her speech. If I can find it in the following few days, I'll post her exact words.
Until, then, thanks so much, Sherry. I accept! Sorry I didn't dress up. My loungy-jammies will certainly land me on the fug list. I promise to do better next time. I was caught unawares!
