1. Just started reading "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell", which so far is quite wonderful. I'm literally 26 pages in, but I am HOOKED. 782-page novels about 19th-century magicians in London + footnotes = awesome

2. I just went bananas. I ordered that insane Far Side collection and the Anchorman gift-set, which comes out today. I can't decide which I'm more excited for.

3. The band is on break, which means I'm playing KOTOR2 obsessively. I'm about 35 hours in and I'm pretty sure I'm near the end. It's been a fun ride - not as good as the first one, but it has greatly exceeded my expectations. To be honest, though, at this point I'm really just anxious to beat it so I can move on to other things.

4. Speaking of the band, we're going to be recording soon, although I don't know exactly when - or how.

5. Poor Kath is a hurtin' unit - she's got my cold, in spades, and unfortunately she's not really able to stay home from work this week, as this week is basically crunch time for environmental non-profit organizations - lots of people are trying to do their tax-deductible donatations before the end of the year, and/or feverishly trying to get more tote bags, and Kath is basically the only person in the office who can deal with that stuff, and she's getting yelled at by stupid people because she's lost her voice and they can't hear her over the phone.

blergeatkitty created a meme today, which I'm going to play along with. Similar to the "here's the lyric, name the song" meme, I present "here's the line, name the movie". Answers to be revealed tomorrow. This ought to be pretty easy. EDIT: By the way, I'm screening comments so there's no cheating. Not that you're going to win anything. Also, these are really easy, anyway.

1. I assure you, the Ministry is very scrupulous about following up and eradicating any error. If you have any complaints which you'd like to make, I'd be more than happy to send you the appropriate forms.

2. I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal.

3. Look, Simon, I made love to your mother about half an hour ago, and I'm beginning to think it wasn't such a good idea.

4. Don't worry. We can walk to the curb from here.

5. Hot lesbian witches! It's fucking genius!

6. Yeah, I was in the shit.

7. We've met before, but something tells me you're going to remember me this time.

8. Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax... You're goddamn right I'm living in the fucking past!

9. Shut up. We didn't lose Vietnam. It was a tie.

10. Hey guys, I just wanted you to know that, uh, the reactors won't take it; the ship is breaking apart and all that... Just FYI.

11. Fuck the machine? Fuck the machine? FUCK THE MACHINE!

12. Never before has the beauty of the sexual act been so crassly exploited!

13. What's wrong with a kiss, boy? Hmm? Why not start her off with a nice kiss?
