Writer's Block: The Kids' Section

Well, I just had an adventure. When I came home for lunch, I saw a bird flying around in my basement. I'm not sure how it got in there (no open windows or doors), but when I opened the door, it disappeared somewhere, and I couldn't find it. So when I came home from work, I saw it again, and it flew into a rafter in the corner. So I opened the door to the backyard, got a stepstool, a broom, and a washcloth, poked around until I could reach it, and then grabbed the thing. Poor bird, it started squawking and screaming, so I quickly walked towards the door and let it go outside. It was a pretty thing, with kind of shimmery purple or green on some of its feathers.

See, one of the benefits of having cats all your life is that you know exactly what to do when there's a small wild animal loose in your house. My mom always had a special shriek for whenever there was a rodent or bird loose in the house, and that was always my cue to go trap and free it.

What was your favorite movie when you were a kid? Is it still your favorite now that you're older?

I was definitely obsessed with "Sister Act" for many years. I have the whole thing memorized, since I've watched it so many times. Andy was over the other day, and I left the room for a few minutes while he picked out a movie to watch. I came back, and he had put in "Sister Act," so I pretty much went apeshit and started babbling about how I was fanatically obsessed when I was 9. It's still one of my favorites, though "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" finally bumped it out of the top favorite spot about 7 years ago.
