I've got the day off, and while everyone's out of the house... I'm sneaking through the books and toys and packing stuff up for Goodwill and the library. This can ONLY be done while the kids are gone, as I'm sure every parent here knows. Five Goodwill bags, two boxes of books. I'd love to make a dent in the kids' enormous collection of stuffed toys, but since they both have photographic-stuffy-toy memories, that is not going to happen. Christopher can remember little creatures in the bottom of the basket in his room that have not seen daylight for five months. *Sigh* I did have some set aside and hidden downstairs for a, um, fandom project. But he noticed them missing and it caused him stress, so back they went. Rats. :(
Spent part of the weekend participating in a discussion where another LJ person believes that I (and certain other LJ members) are part of some malicious conspiracy because we maintain that "whinge" is considered British, and is best avoided in fanfic for American-based shows. *throws up hands* Whatever, dude.
Saw Little Miss Sunshine, which was just hilarious. Our local movie critic was bothered that it was RATED R! Because it features unsuitable family material, but it's a family movie! Ummm.... not that kind of family movie. I sometimes think people just don't get that Dark Humor is not General Humor. In any case, 1) The movie puts the "fun" in dysfunctional (and also the "dis", according to my husband) and 2) Alan Arkin will just never stop being funny, I swear to god. I haven't had so many belly laughs coaxed out of me in I can't remember when.
Rewatched "This is Spinal Tap" again. I have such love for that movie, especially the glorious obtuseness of Nigel (Christopher Guest). Plus, there's that poisonous girlfriend of the other main band member, and speaking of which...
Saw a trailer for "The U.S. Vs. John Lennon," and even after all these years the sight of Yoko Ono makes my husband clench his teeth and growl. I'm guessing Kim will understand that one... ;)
