(1) Happy 70th birthday to Dame Maggie Smith (best known to American viewers, I'm guessing, as Professor McGonagall in the Harry Potter films).
(2) There's a store here in London, behind Oxford Street, named "Tsunami". Very few people seemed inclined to go in there when I passed it today. I can't imagine why.
(3) Why, oh why, was I not aware until today that the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection Vol. 6 DVD set contained the "Mr. B. Natural" short, the single greatest MST3K thing ever? Why didn't I learn this in time to ask for it as a Christmas present? (But since I didn't... can you say "online order", boys and girls? I knew you could! Ch-ching!)
