My silly brain.

My brain likes playing tricks on me. What I mean, in this case, is two things in particular:

1. Sometimes my brain completely forgets a word or name. I know the word or name (even the names of streets), and it's usually something I use frequently, but sometimes the word just doesn't want to be found. The worst of these is when I struggle for 10 or 15 minutes trying to think of a word - it completely derails my train of thought, I literally cannot go on until I find the missing word.

2. Even more annoying than above is when not only does a word decide to play hide-and-seek with me, but my brain substitutes something completely irrelevant, unrelated, and just plain wrong in its place. Usually I can tell when the word that's there is not the right one, like once when I tried to think of "Hawthorne St." and my brain insisted it was "Truck St." Although that's an extreme example; usually the wrong word at least either starts with the same letter or sounds like it might be a reasonable replacement.
Then earlier tonight: doing stuff on Twitter, I typed "homeopathy," but really meant "naturopathy."
Elle Fanning

"Phoebe In Wonderland" review

I saw the movie "Phoebe In Wonderland" at kengr's place the other day. It stars Elle Fanning, the 11 year old younger sister of my favorite actress, Dakota Fanning. This is the first movie I've seen Elle in since she was about 5, and she wasn't very good at the time (well, she was 5. Just because Dakota could out-act adult actresses at about the same age doesn't mean Elle could), and I have to say I think she's getting almost as good as Dakota.

In "Phoebe In Wonderland," Elle plays Phoebe, a young girl with what looks a lot like Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, despite some symptoms that don't quite fit. It turns out to be some form of Tourette's Syndrome instead, I didn't catch the whole name. Anyway, going on: to escape from the effects of this, she starts acting in the school play about Alice In Wonderland, a fantasy she gets lost in outside of the play itself, as well.
