My Oscars 2007 predictions success proves one thing: This is really the Year of The Pig!

26 02 2007

Ah, the sweet stench of success! I’d made my baseless Oscars 2007 predictions couple of days ago. So below is the list of Oscars 2007 winners and in parentheses my picks that didn’t win. One thing’s for sure, if I’d actually watched most of the films, I’d have had a worse chance of predicting correctly since I’d have wanted the ones I liked to win. Yeah, I know, I don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about. Also, I pigged out big time on fast food this weekend. It all makes so much sense to me, the pig year thing. All in all it was an o(in)k weekend.
