My 2010 oscar Nominations

So this year I’ve entered into an oscar pool. Its run by a local safe house so I got all excited…since I thought safe house meant a place where federal witness’ could chill while the older cops who guard them insist they’re too old for this…

It’s not. It’s just a place for women to escape abusive relationships. Still cool and I can support that so I threw my name, money and my nominations into the pool.
