For those of you who love a good quiz.

Take the 80's Song Quiz. I scored "102.35" and I swear I didn't cheat.

Conversation with a four year old:

Me: Why did the chicken cross the road?
4 yr old: I don't know.
Me: To get to the other side. (fake laugh)
4 yr old: (genuine laugh)

4 yr old: Hey Mom, why did the car run over the chicken?
Me: I don't know, why?
4 yr old: Because he was crossing the road.

Feel Good Movies

I already posted about movies that are sad and yet we torture ourselves by sitting and watching them but this post is about movies that are so happy they make you cry.
Rudy was on this morning and I had forgotten how much I love that movie. If you haven't seen it, it's a true story about a young man who wants to attend Notre Dame and play football. It's one of the rarest kinds of movies that brings you to tears of joy. I cried the first time I watched it (several years ago) and I cried again this morning (I've already admitted I'm a dork). Plus I was surprised to see that Vince Vaughn was in this movie as well as Jon Favreau (hmmm, wonder if this is when "Swingers" was born?)
I've been trying to think of other movies that have made me cry from joy and not stemming from some death or trauma. I need help.
Can anyone think of any?

PS. go watch Rudy.
