On the weather, the Oscars and dining out

Coming at you via dial-up from Chez Fay on the beautiful Siesta Key. The Enquirer beat is in the capable hands of Kevin Kelly today.

So if you want baseball, stop reading this entry now.

It's overcast for the first time since camp opened. Probably not a bad thing. I still look like I've been painting closets all winter, as my buddy Marty would say.

Saw "Little Miss Sunshine" last night. Loved it. But don't know if it deserved the Oscar because I haven't seen "The Departed." But I am a fan of Martin Scorsese. Could watch "Goodfellas" 30 more times. Did see the "Queen." I would have voted for Helen Mirren. And Alan Arkin cracked me up as much as any character ever in "Sunshine."

Eat at Gabberio's (not sure of the spelling and it's new enough that it's not in the phonebook) in Siesta Village on Marty's recommendation. Very nice, not too expensive. Good ambiance. Had a guitar player playing on the porch. Waiter mixed in some Italian phrases. Should have saved room for dessert. They looked spectacular. Probably headed to Casey Key Fish House tonight on the recommendation of a blog reader.

The Departed was a great movie, not the best of his career, but still great.

My wife and I still argue about the end, though. I thought it was great, she hated it.

As much as I loved Little Miss Sunshine, The Departed should have won. It is outstanding.
