How was your weekend?

I had a fun-filled but truly busy weekend, full of community events and movies, movies, movies!

Here's how it all unspooled.

First, I woke up Saturday, looking all disheveled, minus make-up and my magical beret (but I gotta have my coffee!!!).

Then, I ran to Westin Mission Hills Resort and Spa in Rancho Mirage, CA for the Paws and Hearts Dog Walk.

Thank God for Fiona Gorostiza (KMIR6 Morning Weather Anchor -- KMIR6, the NBC affiliate in Palm Springs, is my home base right here in the valley) for being there, so I could leave for the Tamales Festival!

I love my Fiona! She's fun and and sweet and talented, on and off camera! And she's super hot too!!!

Then, off to the Tamales Festival I went! And it's only 9:30am!!!

There, I was part of the Tamales Festival parade, riding on the float of MIX 100.5 with my favorite DJ, Mister Bradley Ryan! MIX 100.5 is also one of my homes in Palm Springs. I am on air every Friday afternoon drive time, from 5pm to 7pm, and I love my Mister Bradley!

In the festival, I ran into one of my favorite folks in the whole wide world, Miss Cris of Indio! She's now known as the Ambassador of Indio. She's a super-sweet lady, who always wears a nice, warm smile.

Then, it's off to tasting tamales! I was one of the judges, and we had to devour 25 tamales to come up with the best of the best!

After eating a few of those fantastic tamales, headache was starting to creep in.

So I said goodbye to Miss Kaylyn, she's a Palm Desert Middle School student, who said her mom loves me, so I joked, "and what about you Miss Kaylyn?" So now, she vowed, she loves me too. She's at the festival to participate in the parade, and she said this would be her last year since she's going to high school next year. She'll conquer high school too!

So, after the day's festivities, I ran home, took a nap, in order to get ready for a double dose of movies! I saw "The Golden Compass" and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street."

So at the end of the day, it's still all about movies!

So what do I think of those films? You just have to stay tuned!!!

Here's a teaser though -- "The Golden Compass" should not be judged based on relgious conservatism, and "Sweeney Todd" is like a slasher flick with music! I saw the play last year, and it pretty much captured the tone and spirit of the Broadway production! But it's very, very bloody!!!
