Ha ha ha ha ha ha! mcsister, have we NOT been saying this for YEARS now? Emma Thompson is cinema's best crier.

If Last Chance Harvey is here next weekend, we HAVE to see it.

The second best thing I've seen today, after the new Wolverine trailer:

When you see this, quote Leo McGarry.

There are a lot that came to mind--the funny ones, especially; John Spencer was so brilliantly funny--but this is the one I went with. It's one of my top favorites. The whole scene is wonderful, a classic Leo moment, in my opinion: a little humor, some humility, and a lot of humanity.

LEO: Karen, what you did caused a lot of problems, for me, for the President, and for a lot of people we don't even know. But I'm not sure it wasn't a little bit brave. Did you like working at the White House?

KAREN: Yes, sir.

LEO: Okay. Then why don't you go unpack your carton and you and I will give each other a second chance?

Hugh Jackman to host next year's Oscars.

Quite the departure from the usual comedians they use, and I must say I quite heartily approve. He's funny and very charismatic and charming. I bet he can pull it off.

Also he will look TOTALLY HOT in a tuxedo.

Pictures of the gingerbread house are forthcoming (and I am just tickled that some of y'all asked to see), but in the meantime wanted to share the love with my fellow procrastinators:

Has anyone heard of Free Shipping Day? Apparently it's a yearly occurrence--a ton of retailers decide on the absolute last day they can guarantee shipping by Christmas, and they offer free shipping on that day only. This year the day is December 18th, and there are already like 50 or 60 merchants listed, among them Target, Sears, Crate & Barrel, the Body Shop, Victoria's Secret, and on and on.

From the site:

What is Free Shipping Day?
Thursday, December 18th, 2008 is Free Shipping Day. It's a day when participating merchants give free shipping to online shoppers with guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve.

Free Shipping Day is the last chance for many procrastinators.

I don't know if the merchants will specify only certain items, but it doesn't sound like it, and either way it's a pretty cool deal. I mean, I personally, of course, would never need last-minute shopping deals, but just in case some of you aren't as on the ball as I am ::cough:: ...

Small Anne: I want the lamp on.

Me: We don't need the lamp on, it's bright outside and that makes it bright in the house.

Small Anne: Why is it bright outside?

Me: Because the sun is out. It's daytime.

Small Anne: But I don't want it to be daytime. I want it to be nighttime. I want it to be nighttime right nooooooooooooooooooooow.

Uhhh... I don't know what Small Anne did to my computer, but all my desktop icons are gone. Like, my desktop is completely blank except for my wallpaper.

Everything is working fine, and I'm not overly concerned with most of the icons, they were just shortcuts and such. But how did my "My Computer" and "Recycle Bin" icons disappear? I thought that wasn't possible. And I can't get them back. Am inept.

ETA: Never mind. Figured it out. Am GENIUS!!!

Since I haven't been felled by some sort of dramatic illness-slash-surgery & recovery, I can finally breathe easy. (Hee.) Which means it's time to start my Christmas shopping.

This year our budget is tight, like most other people, and I've never felt the need to go overboard anyway. I'm focusing on the kids this year, and for the first time I'm mapping out a battle plan. Usually I'm very fly-by-the-seat-of-my pants: I shop at random stores, get what looks good, and I'm done. Now I'm actually making a list, checking out websites, doing what I guess would be called comparison shopping. It's totally foreign to me, but I'm getting the hang of it.

I'm watching tonight's Eli Stone and feeling really sad it's almost over. Pushing Daisies is on its last legs. I've lost interest in Brothers & Sisters. I have no dramas left. This is a bummer.

Duuuuuude. Robin is pregnant too?

This should make for an interesting season of HIMYM.
