    Our Netflix queue is so long, it'll probably last for the next 50 years. Usually when a movie arrives (yes, we still get our Netflix movies by mail), one of us will say to the other, "Did YOU put that one on the list??" This happens especially when it's some obscure foreign movie. The latest: The Edukators (Die Fetten Jahre Sind Vorbei), with a cast that includes Daniel Brühl, Julia Jentsch, Stipe Erceg, and Burghart Klaussner. Surely we didn't see one of these actors in some other movie, did we?

    I would love to see Les Misérables in an Imax theater.

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Have fun. I'm holding of on a NeighborWorks training institute until May because it's in PORTLAND! One whole week, paid for by the organization Since RT working in my office in the foreclosure unit on a permanent part-time basis they want to send her to a NW training too If she goes with me that's only one ticket I need to buy for my other half since the baby can have a lap ticket. It will be so nice going home for a week.

    Cool. Let me know when you're plans firm up and I'll arrange a meeting that I have to go to in Portland.

    Why Bronner's of course. If they don't have a Christmas decoration you're looking for it probably doesn't exist.

    They are underpriced goods which are being sold to sort of prop up a failing business model. Collect them now, they should be gone in the next 5 years....

    sometimes local Christmas Fairs have them - they can be cheesy and campy but that can be fun too, depending on your tree

    Christmas is exciting with babies/kids for sure!

    Bunnies are so dang cute.

    I was feeling pretty defeated earlier but then saw a gif of a bunny eating a flower and it helped.

    We have one from Bronner's. One of my wife's aunts gives us some sort of ornament from there every year.

    Family & friends would be the best place. Just "casually" mention that you were thinking about this item. Tell a couple of folks, and word will get around.

    Otherwise, a Hallmark store (cutesie-pie plastic), or any Xmas store. Wish I could steer you to Frank's (miss that place). English Gardens? Hancock or Jo-Ann Fabrics? Also, consider a small photo frame with the year date. I found some nice ones at Michael's, something like 3/$10.

    My wife buys new ornaments from Bronners every single year, for her and the girls.

    It's one of her traditions I do not partake in.

    We do have all the "1st" ornaments from there though. Baby's 1st Christmas (2 times), 1st Christmas in our new home, 1st Christmas together, etc. etc.

    We probably have enough ornaments for 2-3 Xmas trees, even though we only put 1 up.

    Drank a wide range of beers last night. I did not drink all that much but I am not feeling the best today. Mixing beer types is like mixing hard drinks and beer.

    At least I stayed away from the wine.
