Morning Meanderings… And The Award Goes To….. Well Neil.


Tuesday!  Really my first connection on Book Journey since Sunday evening when I put up the Monday What Are You Reading post. So……

That gives me free rein to chat up The Oscars from Sunday night.


I forgot all about.

I know right?

I don’t know what happened.

So I had to catch the highlights and YA once again for Neil Patrick Harris.  After listening to his audio book a few months back it was so fun to see him complete this dream of hosting the Oscars, and host them he did.  If you seen the Oscars or not – you more than likely heard about Neils’ EPIC intro that took not only the Oscar’s but probably Hollywood itself to a whole new level.

But… don’t take my word for it, see for yourself.  I will wait here.  Well… by the coffee pot.  I will wait there.

I have a whole new respect for award shows thanks to Neil.  Hi is just fun to watch, and having grown up on Doogie Howser, I really have watched him since he was young.  And I would be remiss, if I did not find some way to connect this to a Harry Potter moment and here it is:


Not only Dumbledore…. Neil has style too.
