The fox who screams in my garden at three in the morning, every night
The advice on the RSPCA website is quite blunt:

"During the mating season, it may be worth considering the use of ear plugs if the howling disturbs you."

Basically, there's fuck all you can do about it

Writing "cunt" when you mean "twat"

I took my younger sister to see ET when it was first released
and it was so busy that we had to sit quite close to the front, on the left side of the screen.

During the ET-is-dead bit, sis sat there streaming tears while I vainly tried to show how little it affected me. And so, as casually as I could muster, I pretended to look round the cinema.

The whole crowd was in floods of tears. The sight of an auditorium full of people openly contorting their faces in varying degrees of sob is strangely unmoving, but quite bizarre. Never forgotten it.

I think I first saw this one here...
A teddy bear sits on a mattress
One glass eye and threadbare paw
Looking at a cuckoo clock
Which shows it's ten to four

Four o'clock is teddy's teatime
Lots of friends and fancy cake
Although it's only pretend eating
Oh how long ten minutes take

Shadows grow on distant hillsides
Orange sun on glassy sea
All in his amber eye reflected
And still ten minutes left 'til tea

The mattress, striped, is old and broken
Rusty springs through stuffing show
The cuckoo clock is also broken
But how's a teddy supposed to know?

Unaware he's been discarded
That this is not the nursery cot
The hills and sea just glass, old papers
On a disused rubbish plot

A telephone that no one answers
Empty tins that once held tea
The clock that still says nearly teatime
Where can all the children be?

For ages now he's lain unwanted
Saluting with his threadbare paw
He'll never know he's been abandoned
'Til the clock reads after four

Don't tell him that the clock is broken
For as long as teddy doesn't know
It'll always soon be teatime
As it was, so long ago.

Actual genuine answer from me!
My son is a bit of a Thomas the tank engine fan, the price of the merchandise is enough to bring a tear to your eye, but he's not greedy about what he has, so I'm not complaining.

On youtube, there is a video of a large outdoor railway, which someone has set to one of the songs from the yank version of the rather shitty live action Thomas the tank engine film, that being Some Things Never Leave You by Joe Henry. When he was two I had him sat on my lap in front of the PC, with this video playing on one screen on Youtube to keep him occupied, while I did something else on the other screen. The video finished and he asked me to play it again, so I duly obliged.

He started singing along. I lost it.

My 4 year old niece singing that song from 'Frozen' had me welling up a bit.
She totally fucked up the chorus, couldn't hit any of the high notes and was out of key. She RUINED that song for me.

Re: Curses!!!
Oh, and it just goes to show that these thing come round in cycles as I can recall telling a little boy across the road from my house that Raphael had went beserk and murdered Splinter and all the rest of the Turtles...and Spider-Man too! He just wouldn't stop laughing!

Needless to say I had the last cry!

My "sobbiest" films...
There are certain films that I LOVE but just can't watch without wailing. I once "let loose" and gave into my sobs. My sister charged in the room thinking I'd seriously injured myself.

Titanic - Just the bit at the end. The bit where everyone is back together and they're all happy. Happy and dead. I have to leave the room.

Bicentennial Man - Again, the bit at the end where he dies and Galatea turns his wife's machine off. He was finally recognised human and he probably didn't hear it but it's okay because he's so happy. I plain try not to watch this film.

A League Of Their Own - The bit at the end (pattern here somewhere...) set in the present day where they're just reminiscing about good times, BUT IT'S ALL OVER. It's all in the past (I don't even mind that some of them are dead) and that really sets me off.

Toy Story 3 - THE BIT AT THE END. And also the bit NEAR the end where they're in the furnace and they *give up and accept fate*. *gasp* When Andy gives them to the wee girl and I realised that they've moved on and so must I. I grew up with Toy Story so I felt like I was saying bye to them too. Buzz and Woody, nooo, I love you guys, good byeeeeeeee.

Disney's Frozen
I mean, the plot inconsistencies are a sodding tragedy compared to Disney at its finest.

"My sister has cast a spell of eternal winter" - what, like, at most, four hours ago? You were there remember, and you immediately set off up the mountain on a horse, and here you are. 'Eternal' my arse. Look, she's obviously moody as she just got her first blob-on; give it a few days and she'll be fine. Sorry, you don't agree? What do you think the isolation, and the shame to touch anything, and the fucking great angry ice-monster symbolises? PMT, right. Just don't ask what the ever-present fluffy little white Olaf represents in all this coming-of-age metaphor.

"Here's your new sledge" "Thanks" "Though since it's paid for out of the royal purse everyone else will be paying for it through taxation". "And incidentally, now we've got a queen who can practically piss liquid nitrogen your ice-cutting business is pretty much fucked".
