11969. Well, the little princess is back home, happy to see me, but smelling like poo. She had a second enema today, and it looks like they cleaned her rear, as the fur is wet, but there is clearly poo remaining somewhere. I tried to clean her off a bit, but she was having none of it, so I decided to let her de-stress for a while. I'll try some wipes later, but she'll probably need a bath. That will have to wait til tomorrow, when my catsitter can help.

I made a whole wheat bread with flax seed, oatmeal, and sunflower seeds. The loaves are a little dry, but yummy. The second loaf got messed up during the rise and is doughy in the middle. Oh well. I'll definitely use this recipe again, though, adding a little more water next time. So since that encounter with yeast was reasonably successful, next I'm going to conquer cinnamon rolls.

I LOVE cinnamon rolls.....especially Cinnabon! But, wow are they expensive!

I am happy to hear Miss Diva Celia is home. Hopefully she poops well for you. Does drinking cows milk help move things faster through her? I know it does with Simba when he is a bit backed up.

11971. I drink lactose-free milk, so I always assumed she'd be fine with it. I've never noticed that it constipates her, so maybe I'll give her a little saucer. She has poo stuck to her fur, and as I suspected, the wipes weren't very effective. She held still while I was using the wipes, so I think being dirty is bothering her. But I'm not sure how well she'll tolerate a more serious effort to free her of poo. I've had to clean her before, but I can't remember how I did it. I guess just warm water and paper towels. And hopefully my catsitter to hold her if she fusses.

Those Cinnabons are amazing, but just huge! Mine will be a normal size. When I get around to them...

Glad Celia's home!

Yum, Cinnabons... you bake yours from scratch?!

There's a One Hot Cookie downtown, maybe I'll hit it before work...

11973. I got her a little cleaner last night, then today we got most of it. She's still a little stinky, but far less than yesterday. I think that's why she wouldn't eat yesterday, because her food and everything else probably smelled like poo. I'll try to get her completely clean later. The way I have to sit makes it really hard on my operated hip though.

bluemilk, I haven't yet, but I want to try. It just seems too cold for dough to rise anywhere though. I put the bread dough on a chair over the heating vent the other day, lol.

Glad Celia is feeling more like her normal Diva self instead of her super diva self!
Hopefully stinky goes away and she wants to eat again!

11975. Yep. She's munched two plates of food since being de-stinkified.

Only a few more days of break left. I knew when I decided to design a new course that at some point over break I would regret it. I love my topic (Muslims, Arabs, and French national identity), and I think all students of French should know the history of the current social crisis, but it's not my specialization, so there's a lot of research to be done.

11976 Sprite, glad Ms Celia is less stinky for both your sakes. That class sounds really interesting and agree it's so important to understand how we got to the current situation. What age group do you teach?

11978.

annegirl, thanks. I went to bed last night and all I could smell was kitty poo...I teach at a college. This is an advanced course, but I teach all levels and all kinds of classes - it's a small college with a small French program, so we all teach a lot of different classes.

bluemilk, there are some similarities, but I think the situation in France is particular, because of its colonial history in North Africa, and its unusual association of language with national identity. I'm reading a book that has some hilarious observations about the French.
