I have a weakness for talking pigs.

Oh geez, ok, so I have a confession to make. And this even took me by surprise.

I was watching TV the other day and the preview for Charlotte's Web came on. AND I GOT TEARY! jeezus, what kind of wuss am I? It didn't even take the whole movie - just the thought of that cute little porker almost getting shipped off to slaughter and being saved by the love of a thoughtful spider.... sigh... it looks really good. ... and damn - there are some awesome actors in it: Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Kathy Bates...

NO WAY! I saw that commercial too and I can't wait to see that! That was my favorite book when I was a kid. I read it often with my Grandma Charlotte. She was totally like the spider who took me to the fair and made me into "some pig." lol
I love it! That description of that rat eating all that garbage at the fair is one of my most vivid literary memories!
