I drastically overuse the words "quite" and "just" in sentences.

I seem to have a thing for meaningless modifiers.

That's a really bad habit.

I wrote a sequel to White Pongo called "Night of the Pongo Queen". Actually I just wrote a song called that. It's like "Night of the Pongo Queeeeen, Night of the Pongo Queeeeeeeeen"

I find the Shanti Devi case to be really amusing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanti_Devi
In 1930, aged 4, Shanti Deva from Delhi, India, told her parents that she had once lived in a place called Muttra (now known as Mathura), that she had been a mother of three, who died in childbirth, and that her previous name was Ludgi. Because the girl continually related the story, her parents investigated. It turned out there was a village called Muttra, and that a woman named Ludgi had recently died there. They took Shanti to the village where she began to speak the local dialect and recognized her previous-life husband and children. She even gave twenty four accurate statements matching confirmed facts about Ludgi’s life.

Spent most of the evening moving all the stuff from my church into our new location.  Shame the church had to move to get away from one guy, but I think we will be better off now . . .

and the facility we relocated to is VERY nice!!!

Somehow, in my shopping travels, combing the bargain bins, I ended up with enough B-movies to put one in each stocking.

You have a duty to enrich their cultural experience.

Here, we've been watching family Christmas movies about three evenings a week. My wife has generally insisted on conventional family fare - Home Alone, The Santa Clause, Elf, Miracle on 34th Street (1994), The Polar Express, etc. All are pretty funny and/or entertaining, I'll admit, although I think The Polar Express rolls straight through the Uncanny Valley on its way to the North Pole. Still, where is the culture?

Fortunately, there have been enough times when it's been just me and the little girl that I've managed to sneak in Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Ernest Saves Christmas and the best adaptation of A Christmas Carol, that old, black-and-white British film starring Alastair Sim. And, I do believe there is also a trip to Bedford Falls in our future, and a certain Red Rider BB gun.

India is full of cases that suggest reincarnation. They're out there in most cultures but it's when they arise among a population that already believes in physical rebirth that they receive the most attention. In the west these accounts have usually been dismissed as either children being imaginative, or adults being creative. No doubt sometimes that's the case, though in some instances, like that of Shanti Devi, outright dismissal is more difficult.

Back when I was in high school there was an interesting newspaper article about a little boy in Ohio, a preschooler, who started drawing fairly detailed representations of the cockpit controls on a B-24 bomber, and he'd talk about how he used to be a grown up who flew one, and he "burned up and died" in the plane. I looked for the longest time for more details in that case but if it was reported on again, I never saw it. A shame.

Lotta strange stuff in this world...
