Hollywood Glam

Anyone tuning in to 
the Oscars 

I am...

but, Sall just looks at me
like I'm an idiot!
(lovingly, of course)

I'm just a sucker
for all that Hollywood 
Glam and Glitter....

Vintage Hollywood Sexy Actresses

I lay around dreaming
about a Hollywood hunk
escorting me down the Red Carpet....

and Hollywood Paparazzi
blinding me....

And if you believe all that,
I've got a gold mine out back if you're interested!

Seriously, I would be one of 
those star-struck people if I ever
ran into a real live movie star...

 It gave me chills
standing in Liz Taylor's footprints....

My size 8's next to her tiny shoeprint

My mom and I toured Hollywood 
and took the Universal Studio Tour....
25 years ago!

Here I am at Grauman's Chinese Theater,
she took my picture beside Burt Reynold's square
uucckkk, that was a LONG time ago!

On the Universal Studio Tour we rode a tram
and saw the back lots....

They show you all kind of Movie set secrets,
like how they shot the water scenes from JAWS...

The Leave It To Beaver House,
Norman Bate's House from Psycho,

and here's a little Hollywood trivia...

Do you recognize this house?

I'll let you do some guessing...

Hollywood was a fun experience...

Unfortunately, no Hollywood producer saw me
to "discover" me and not one Hollywood Hunk
asked me out!

So, here I am on the prairie 25 years later,
popping popcorn and getting set to watch
the Oscars all by myself!

It will be a fun night!

Enjoy the show
or whatever you're doing this evening!

Did you figure out who's house that was yet?
(click here for an interesting website about it)

I just loved this post. I think Hollywood actors were so much interesting way back when. Thanks for sharing your view of Hollywood this morning.

There won't be any Oscar viewing in my household tonight. The Glam and Glitter just isn't there any more...at least in my opinion!

well, i think 80s hair kept a lot of us from being 'discovered'. ha!

dr momi said...

too funny Tex!.....ya, no watching it here. But you have a good time :-)

Marigene said...

I may watch a little of it, but not the whole thing.

I'll be watching so I know what everyone is talking about tomorrow. Hollywood is a bad role model, but I'm past the age of role models, ha.

Don't know that house but I will check out the link. Can't miss the Oscars even when I haven't seen any of the movies. We went to LA and Hollywood for the first time this past fall. I enjoyed it more than I ever thought I would and would love to go back. I was the one ooohing and aaaahing over the Star Trek feet.

This was a fun post!! I had no idea whose house that was, and checked out the link you gave us--What a transformation the house has made!

I'll watch part of the Oscar's--I really love George Clooney and while I don't think he'll win tonight, I'll still be hoping to get a glimpse of him--for me, he's like one of those old fashioned movie stars! sigh.....
