So. I didn't get the quiet evening alone I wanted--I realized too late that the church music program my parents were going to (my stepfather plays drums) only lasted two hours; for some reason, I'd thought they'd be out a lot longer. And Lord knows you can't watch The Dark Knight in only two hours.* But the day itself went off quietly and without incident (particularly once I got Elizabeth settled in**), and I got a Lucky Brand locket bracelet that I love and a beautiful jewelry box (hand-pressed aluminum, made in India, I think? There's this store called Ambiance at the Riverchase Galleria, and it's pretty much full of nothing but stuff like that) that I'll have to take pictures of or something, because I can't really do it justice otherwise. Also, I caught my mother watching Casino Royale on cable OF HER OWN FREE WILL. VICTORY IS MINE!

* Can I just say that the DVD extras bite? As in, there aren't any? I mean, I got the two-disc thing and it was like, "Here's the six scenes in IMAX, except you're watching this on a TV so it kind of doesn't help, and here's Hans Zimmer talking about the music." Thanks...? I mean, I wasn't disappointed because I had already heard that the extras sucked and what I really wanted was the movie itself--the whole chase with the truck is so awesome it still makes me giggle--but I just wanted to officially register that complaint.

** I have to add that Elizabeth is the first doll I think I've ever gotten that looked better in person than in the picture. I seriously will have to borrow that camera again and do a little photoshoot.

And then today there was MOAR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING and then I sat down with my Dark Knight DVD and basically skipped around and watched all my favorite parts, which... really are the whole movie, I guess, but I felt like watching them out of order? And the truck part twice. I don't know.

(I did not, however, get werewolf cupcakes. This must be rectified next year.)

But for whatever reason, I'm really tired, so I just wanted to post a couple of things and catch up on the rest tomorrow, I guess:

I meant to post this days ago, but better late than never--an Overheard in New York link from dduane:
Conductor: Hello, and welcome to the Hogwarts Express. This is platform 9 3/4, and we will be leaving shortly for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Preteen holding Harry Potter book, to suit holding Harry Potter book: Oh my god! I knew they would come for me!

Suit holding Harry Potter book, to himself: I did too.


'Wolverine' Trailer: See Wolvering & Friends Do Everything Imaginable; Breaking Down The New ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Trailer. I'm not sure what's going on with that first headline, but I feel like this movie should, in fact, involve a shitload of wolvering.

EXCLUSIVE: We Interview J.J. Abrams And Unveil A New ‘Star Trek’ Banner!

First 22 minutes of 'Watchmen' screened.

‘Blade’ Helmer Set for a Reinvention of ‘The Crow.’ Really? We need this? And I'm not even assuming that it's cursed from the get-go.

Rumor: Billy Zane's The Phantom is Getting a Sequel?! REALLY? WE NEED THIS?

Lucian Wolfs Out in New Underworld Pic; New 'Underworld: Rise of the Lycans' Poster.

Twilight sequel marches on: BEN BARNES FOR ARO? WHAT? I mean, I would totally be okay with more eye candy, since God knows I'm not there for fine cinema. It's just that I always imagined Aro as a low-rent Dumbledore type. Go back and read all his dialogue in a Dumbledore voice! YOU CANNOT UNSEE THE DUMBLEVAMP.

And shouldn't Barnes be off filming Dawn Treader somewhere? Somewhere very tanned? I have a bad feeling about this.

And finally, via duncatra: Celine Dion is amazing. No, SHE IS. WATCH IT.
