Cancel your cable- Watch Penelope

That's what I've been doing tonight- watching Penelope and thinking everyone should see it.
I admit that I totally miss the days of having digital cable with DVR, but those days are long gone, and we finally cancelled even our basic cable, and signed up for Netflix and it's great!  $9 a month and you get as many DVDs as you want, one at a time, and they are fast.  Plus there is a ton of stuff available to watch instantly online, including Penelope, which may be my all time favorite movie.  Plus all the "My Name is Earl" episodes are there too, and lots of other shows, commercial free, what more can you ask for?

Madame Alexander dolls are back!

The McDonalds Happy Meals have some new adorable little Madame Alexander dolls in them.  I'm obsessed with these!  The are the only Happy Meal toys I can never get rid of.
