Actually, nothing particularly incroyable has happened here today. I'm simply doing enough hovering around in the French language these past few days to want to pop that word in here.

If I could stay up for another hour, I could see the beginning of the Oscars. But if I saw the beginning of the Oscars, I'd be tempted to stay up all the way through the show, which won't end until at least 4 a.m. GMT. My diehard friends would do it, even if (perhaps especially if) they did have to sit up all night. I'm showing my true colors: I'm mostly in it for the dresses, so I think I'll sit up and see whether I can catch the first round of images to get posted tonight--and then trust that the photographs tomorrow will be très magnifique.

All this decision-making requires some toast.
