Flipping the PancakesLast day of my mini vacation and I spent it cleaning the apartment. And I made pancakes. The stormtroopers helped. My pancakes were somewhat bigger. ;)

I heard they released the Academy Award nominees, but I don't care about that. I haven't cared since the Oscar show in the early-'80s when I got annoyed that not only did the nominee (I can't even remember what it was now) I wanted to win not win, but the winner was what I thought the weakest contender in that category, and I threw the book I was reading across the room. Fortunately, I didn't throw it at the TV. And I decided right then that award shows and entertainment awards aren't good for my blood pressure, so I quit right then and there. I shut the TV and finished reading my book. Life went on. They're just movies.

The news that Heath Ledger was found dead was a shock. I'm not going to comment on the how or the why until the ME's report is released. But sad as it is that there won't be any more brilliant performances by this talented actor, I'm sad for his little girl. She'll never really know her father. I really haven't lost anything of real value. He wasn't part of my life. But he had many loved ones and my heart goes out to them. As it does to anyone who loses someone dear.
