Have you guys seen Truly Madly Deeply? It's one of my favorite movies. It was Anthony Minghella's (Talented Mr. Ripley) first film, he wrote and directed it. It stars Alan Rickman, who is so amazing, and Juliet Stevenson. The acting is truly wonderful and the plot is so sweet. It's the story of a woman who has been grieving so deeply over the loss of her partner that she can't get on with her life. He comes back as a very real ghost to help her and brings along some of his friends. It's so good, please rent it if you haven't seen it. It's on WE, the Women's Entertainment Network right now, which is why I'm thinking about it.

My cat Ala isn't doing very well. She's a Cornish Rex with a heart murmur. She comes from that batch of sickly kitties I got from the woman in San Diego with the serious drug problem. Her father and grandfather are the nicest cats in the world, I have them too. Her dad Niki is my favorite cat.

I love her so much. She's this skinny, bitchy, hormonal little person, and she is so dear to me. The vet will be here soon, but I'm really worried, she looks so thin and isn't eating or drinking much. Her teeth need cleaning but we can't anaesthetize her with her having this heart murmur. Now I wish we had just taken the risk when she was stronger. I think she isn't eating because her mouth hurts. I sat with her last night, for a long while by the sink, cupping my hands and getting her to drink the running water. I made it lukewarm so it wouldn't bother her mouth.



Will you guys think good thoughts for my little friend Ala, please? It worked once before when you prayed for one of my kitties.



I forgot I had this picture of the kittens. Aren't they cute? They're much bigger now, and of course one of them has a broken tail, waaaaaaaaa.

Oooh, Wait Until Dark is on. Have you guys seen this? I saw this for the first time, when I was a little girl, away at summer camp. Camp Golden Arrow in the High Sierras. I was so frightened. Alan Arkin was so amazing in this, and the scene where Audrey Hepburn breaks all the lights, but doesn't realize the refrigerator door is propped open with a towel, was so great. Of course this was long before all of the schlock horror films of the eighties, so someone who is supposed to be dead, suddenly lunging across the room, was still scary back then. Oh and remember the bratty little girl, Gloria, from upstairs? I so wanted to play that part.



I didn't even know I had Women's Entertainment Network until last night but now that I've found it I can't stop watching it.

Ala is hanging in here, we have to give her vitamins, antibiotics, appetite stimulants, subcu-fluids, a special mouth wash for her teeth, and a powder. Her mouth hurts so much that when we try to give her the meds she swings at us. This is so hard. Blah.

Woohoo another one of my Grannie's dresses on eBay. This one is nice, I love the bodice. I haven't been finding too many lately. I won't let anyone get these away from me now. I hope no one forces my bid up. I use a sniper service which swoops in for me at the last second, but I set another lower bid before hand just in case something goes wrong. I don't want to have another one of those, So sorry to outbid you, I'm going to wear this dress for my wedding, although, well, come to think of it, maybe I'll sell it for two grand, fiascos. Long story.
