I have a lot going on this morning and I stayed up really late, so I'll make this quick.
My weekend was packed with activities, most of which involved me bringing food. I had a haircut and color appointment on Saturday followed by a viewing of "Reno 911: Miami" with the hubby, then I cooked and baked until after midnight. For the record, I made potato soup, baked ziti, two loaves of Italian bread and a pan of brownies.
On Sunday, I worked at the spay/neuter clinic in the cat recovery room from 8:00 a.m. to about 1:00 p.m. (I brought potato soup and one loaf of bread). That evening I took the baked ziti and the other loaf of bread to a Ronald McDonald House. After that, I went to an Oscar party and brought my Pan's Labyrinth Brownies. (Hershey's brownies with peppermint chips made in a labyrinthine pan.)
I enjoyed the Academy Awards show, particularly host Ellen DeGeneres. I can tell that reviewers' opinion of her hosting job pretty much came down to whether or not they like her schtick in general. I do, and I thought she was funny and nicely relaxed.
I didn't have much stake in the outcome of the show because I'd only seen a handful of the movies that were nominated, but I still got 8 out of 17 correct on the pre-show ballot the host provided, which won me a DVD of "Apocalypse Now." Woohoo!
This morning I'm dropping Velcro off to have surgery on a mammary tumor that the vet found a couple of weeks ago. We're keeping our fingers crossed that she'll be okay.
That's all I've got for now. Enjoy your Monday and I'll try to write something of substance for tomorrow.
Jane, you mentioned Pan's Labrynth. Have you seen the SPanish movie of the same name.
Comes as quite a shock when like me, you were expecting something like the Chronicles of Narnia ! KP

That's a wicked cool pan, Jane.
Have you tried any of the silicon pans? You know, the super-flexible ones that are supposed to make removing things much easier? I've always been a little wary of spending money on those if they don't work well.

Not Velcro!!!!!!!! Good grief, woman, you're having some terrible cat luck these days.
I didn't watch the awards show b/c I don't think I've seen any of the movies nominated. I spent the last year avoiding movies, in fact. Maybe next year...

How was Reno 911? I've been wanting to see it.

I hope Velcro's going to be OK. You've already gone thru so much with your kitties.
I, too, really enjoyed Ellen's hosting of the Oscars.
