If you don't do anything else today, please do this. Go to Google, and watch today's Google Doodle animation. It celebrates Lotte Reiniger, a German filmmaker who pioneered silhouette films.
It is so totally cool and beautiful. After you're done watching (and if you're anything like Mom, wiping the tears out of your eyes...) then click the link that says "Watch how today's doodle was made."
If you miss this today, you can go to: http://www.google.com/doodles to see it. And depending on where you live, you might not see this one. Google has different doodles for different countries. For example, Mom and I did not see Suzanne Leglen's doodle on May 24 because we do not live in France.
