Har-dee-har-har.

M and I watched Little Children with a friend last night. The film was great but left me with a creepy feeling afterwards, so I was a little jumpy when I went downstairs to go to bed.

I was sliding under the covers when suddenly raucous, maniacal laughter erupted from underneath my pillow.

Once I'd peeled myself off of the ceiling, a search revealed a little plastic device that previously resided inside an odious stuffed animal the kids got from Oma one year. When you press a button it laughs uproariously.

At least someone's laughing, because my children certainly won't be when they're turned out in the snow to do hard manual labor...

And aren't they worried about the imminent arrival of Sinterklaas?

How was Little Children? I loved the book, went on a Tom Perotta binge afterwards & wished he had written more.
