First, Happy Birthday to tuesdaeschild! I hope you're having a lovely day, with both wine AND chocolate. ♥

Late birthday greetings to _sin_attract and deadbeat_nymph, and early ones for pkoceres (in case I space that out on Thursday). Celebrate all that you are, and know that I do too! \o/

On the RL front, things are "meh" and "blah." We had about one week of Spring (last week), and now we've hit the 100-degree heat of Summer. That was the longest Winter ever, and it totally distracted me from important things such as, "You know, you're going to have to shrink that butt if you want to get into a pair of shorts again." Bleh.

We finished S1 of Luther last night (so soon? Only six episodes!), and I suspect I'll be torrenting S2 in the near future since it just ran on BBC.

We also watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off, providing the kids with context for really memorable lines that don't otherwise make sense:
  • "Well, Jeannie, who's bothering you now?" (There's an entire history behind that line, you can just tell).

  • "That's it. I want out of this family." (God, I have SO been there, growing up)

  • "Do you speak English?" "What country do you think this IS?"

  • "You produce a corpse, and I'll dig up your daughter."

  • "So that's how it is in their family..."

  • "Ferris Bueller, you're my HE-ro."

  • "If I go for ten [sick days], I'm probably gonna have to barf up a lung."

  • Cameron and the principal completely steal that movie, and it was interesting to find out that Lauren was more irritated by Ferris' behavior than not, especially in how he treated Cameron. I sympathize with Jeannie, too-- everything she does backfires, even when it isn't wrong, and Ferris gets away with absolutely everything. Thank goodness it's only a movie. ;)
