Paczki And Other Pics 'N Stuff

Once again I find I'm falling behind in blogging. I know I need the money and all but I can't wait until I'm put in nonpay status sometime this spring. Then I'll have the time to devote to this, not to mention searching for another job so I don't have to go back to this one in the fall -- ideally it would be a part-time job of some kind, whether it's two or three 8-hour days per week or 4 hours a day/five days per week.

I don't think you can see what this says, but basically it's a Polish tradition to bake these right before the start of Lent. Seeing as how I can hardly resist sweets and snacks these days, I bought some. They're quite tasty.

But going back to the subject of my blogging, I saw a couple of movies over the three-day weekend! One was kind of a slog and the other was a mess. I will write about them this week. And I still have that one long post, which is now a full year in the making. Sheesh.
