Wow, I'm glad everyone is okay...except maybe for your ego. 

I've never set the oven on fire, but my mom has.  And my fiancee was kind enough to point out the elemental difference between the two of us.  When confronted with a flaming appliance, I will jump up and down, point (more like pinwheel my arms like a madwoman), and shriek: "FIRE!"  at the top of my not-inconsiderable lungs. 

My mother, upon seeing that her oven is burning, will calmly close the door, fill a dixie cup of water, go back to the oven, open the door, and dump the water in, with only a deadpan:  "Oven's on fire."  by way of explanation. 

Aren't kitchen fires fun?

mwwwahahahahaha! My mother will turn the stove top on, cook her food, then leave some plate on a burner that she THOUGHT she turned off, and the plate will...of course....crack. then SHE freaks out, pouring water all over the kitchen...which is not on fire.

The best time was when, in a panic, she grabbed the can of Bacon grease instead of water. chaos. pure chaos. Wink

Oh my god... I'm so glad everyone is okay, but this made me laugh really hard-- probably because I could see myself doing that! We used to keep extra pans and stuff in our oven when I was a kid, so I've gotten into the habit of checking before I turn the oven on. Man, what a disaster!

I hope you get to make some cookies soon!

"Easy to Assemble" should be a warning label, not a selling point!

Like all good craftsters, I made it up out of the idiocy of my own head. When melting crayons in plastic ice cube trays, keep the temperature low, people, keep it low.

I now really want cookies. I'm in the library and getting slightly odd looks becuase it's quiet and I really laughed!

I nearly set fire to the kitchen the other day. I left a tea towel on the stove tucked under my pan of boiling water. I now see why you're meant to watch these things!

(A far more minor fire than your's though, just lots of smoke and fewer tea towels)

Found a Ninja Turtle in the Oven this morning when I was about to make a breakfast cassarole. Alas, poor Leonardo, we knew him well.  Wink

Ah, yes...the turtle in the oven disaster has happened here as well.
