The Whole 30 Diaries — Day 13: Evacuation

  • I’ve seen some shitty Academy Awards nomination days before, but this one is the lousiest. No Awkwafina? Todd Phillips for Director? No Dafoe in Supporting? No J-Lo? Yikes. That’s really bad. Really, REALLY bad.
  • Alright, well, picks. The easiest to forecast? Supporting. Pitt and Dern are locks. Zellweger probably is for Actress. Actor? It’s Phoenix, 60–40 odds, with Driver taking up most of the other space.
  • The nominations may have sucked, but at least we get to see two super-deserving people — Jonathan Pryce and Antonio Banderas — finally get nods. Good for them. So great in so many movies for so long.
  • Going to be weird getting used to a new Red Sox manager this summer, after all of two years. I don’t think we’ll see Alex Cora for a while.
  • I’ve been putting more potatoes into my diet now! I made an excellent breakfast scramble with onions and peppers and onions, along with scrambled eggs and turkey bacon. That worked like a charm. It looked just like beautiful, sweet diner food. Oh, I miss you so, diner food. Should I just go back home to Jersey for my first meal after this gets done? I could just go to the State Line Diner and REALLY make a 180 on this diet.
  • Oh, you don’t know about the State Line Diner? You’re telling me you DIDN’T go to school in that little corner of the Garden State? Well, fine. Check out the diner menu here, ignorami. That’ll tell you all you need to know. Look at how many fucking choices there are!
