Film Fest 2011
We are fancy people and so we have to be fancy at the start of the New Year and have our own Film Festival. It is not quite a star studded as the Sundance Film Festival but close, because remember, I am now a famous actress.
We always host. We set up our family room just so.
This year, we had eight films up for the showing but unfortunately, two were not sent in DVD format (one of our rules) and we couldn't figure out a good way to show them. My father-in-law and his wife always pick one film to win the "Oscar" a man he makes out of money, that totals about $24 dollars.
This year it went to my brother-in-law's brother and his fiance. Honestly, one of the funniest, cleaver films ever submitted. They totally deserved it this year.
And, in keeping up with our fancy image, we did a "hot dog" bar as the menu. For hot dogs, they were very fancy (my husband scores them, so they have a very cool pattern on the top and grills them to perfection-no boiled dawgs at our house) and we had about 30 condiments available to everyone. Film Fest 2011 was a success.
