What a pleasant surprise to wake up (kinda early, but not really) on a dreary, rainy Saturday morning to find one of my favorite movies, Love Actually, playing on USA. Even if it’s sort of a Christmas movie, and it’s not yet enough of a favorite that I already know all the key lines or whatever.

And maybe I’ve said it before, but the scene in which Karen (Emma Thompson) reacts to receiving the Joni Mitchell CD is so perfectly right on and devastating … damn. Really, though, I really really like the entire film. Especially Alan Rickman. And Bill Nighy. And all those other Brits … including the guy who loves Juliet (Keira Knightley) but realizes there’s pretty much absolutely nothing he can do about it: “Enough. Enough now.”

Yuck, rain.

Yay, movies!
