Dear GYA, What's better than watching The Oscars, Sunday night? Absolutely everything. I would rather be chased by an angry posse of Guatemalan super bees than sit through 10 minutes of The Oscars. Hell, I'd even chug a can of lukewarm kiwi-strawberry Snapple. Please tell me there's something to do this weekend besides watch The Oscars? - Max Frohgurts, Sandy---
