My preschooler has some interesting quirks.  When he was a baby, he didn’t have a favorite stuffed animal or a blankie.  Jason’s thing was “a penny and a pencil”. 

I don’t know how he came to lock in on these items, but the boy could not function without a penny and...

Will the movie be as good as the book?
12 September 2009, 2:12 pm

I’m not much of a movie person, [I feel like my brain is already filled with enough uselessness (I'm practically certain I could win Teen Jeopardy)] but I am very much looking forward to the movie adaptation of the book Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.  In 3-D too!
