Saw Polar Express tonight, which I’ve been meaning to do since my mother went to see it on its opening weekend and loooooved it. I remember that book so well — we read it just about every Christmas in grade school. It was the must-have book of 1985-1986, coincidentally the year I started Kindergarten. Nicely done, Mr. Hanks. Updated my movies page to reflect that one and the two from the weekend.
The good news is, I have working TiVo!! It’s great, except it keeps recording lots of “Magnum, P.I.” because it’s picked up the fact that I like a). crime dramas and b). the 70s? I’m not sure. I’ve been advised against using the name Dave, so I’m trying to pick a new name. Perhaps Tom, in honor of both Tom Selleck and Thomas Sullivan Magnum III. Or, heh heh, Higgins. OK, that’s it, it’s Higgins.
Time for bed! I stayed up far too late last night, working on my first afghan.
