Three Men and a Baby ... and a Vulcan?

Isn't the Wikipedia amazing? It always ends up answering my initial question, plus one or two things I wouldn't have even known to ask.

Into the latter column goes my newfound knowledge that Leonard Nimoy directed Three Men and a Baby. I may be guilty of some typecasting, but this strikes me as downright bizarre.

And as a bonus, the Wikipedia article even points out the last word on the movie's "ghost child" urban legend.

A Jerry Maguire Moment

No, you don't complete me. You don't even need to show me the money--at least not in the way you think.

My Jerry Maguire moment was all about making a spectacle of myself, screaming into a phone while others were in earshot. In Jerry's case, Rod Tidwell was making him scream the now-immortal line, "Show me the money!" and Jerry's whole office was wondering what had possessed him. In my case, it was the soon-to-be-immortal line, "JAVAAAAAAA!" and only my wife was around to wonder what had possessed me.

You see, the folks behind Elf Yourself created a pretty slick system where you phone-in the monologue for your elf. So for my creation of Sun's Chief Elvish Officer (or should we call him Javanathan?), I really was on the phone in our basement screaming and yelling like a madman. And my wife really was wondering how to get me some professional help.
