Happy Valentine's Day

And so the day of love is here again, the day on which, according to legend, birds choose their mates and about three different saints named Valentine were martyred. Normally, I take Lucky to a movie or something on Valentine's Day, but I'm in the field now and I'm off movies for the time being, anyway.

Speaking of movies and Valentines, the critics have given a nice Valentine to The Spiderwick Chronicles. After a long string of miserable fantasy films for kids, it's nice to know that a good one has been released.

On the other hand, the critics turned up their noses at Jumper, which disappoints me; I had been looking forward to that one, even though I'm pretty sure a Nickelodeon special back in the early nineties had an identical premise.
