hello, culture lovers

November 23rd, 2009

Christmas movie season has started for us. We’ve already watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Ref.” Tonight we’re watching “A Christmas Story” and I also bought a copy of “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” for Steve. Because it was me and my cousin T’s favorite and now he is gone and I have to have something to make me not so lonely for him, once the holidays kick into full manic overdrive.

I realize that that will not happen until mid-morning this Friday, but I am getting prepared.

I am missing my cousin, and my grandma. He was the nicest person in our family so of course he died young. That is the way shit operates I guess. Same for his dad, same for my dad, I coulda called it but I didn’t. And my grandma was the wildest so of course I don’t know who the hell to call now that she’s gone. I go to call her once or twice a day, only she is not there. Then I do not want to pick up the phone at all when it rings because, ring, ring, hello? It’s not going to be her.

“Nancy. It’s her Grandma. Call her.”

That is the message she would leave on my machine, see?


Do the holidays affect you weird or what?

Also, what is your favorite holiday book and/or movie?

Please advise.

    Sorry you are sad but this is a great time to relive all the great memories. Love Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story. It isn’t a true holiday season if those aren’t watched at least one time.

    It is tradition that we always watch the Muppet version of A Chirstmas Carol. I am not allowed to deviate from this in any way shape or form. Ever.

    Gonzo: I am here to tell the story.
    Rizzo the Rat: And I am here for the food.

    We get into the christmas music, and sing all day. And we recite “The Night Before Christmas”. But we might get “A Muppet Christmas Carol” because it’s cold and rainy. Bleh.
