All of us here at The Weinblog™ (AKA, me, my cat Pebbles and my imaginary pet reindeer Marvin) would like to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas! I hope all of you get everything that you wished for.
For my Jewish readers out there… well, just, um, have a good day.
While it wasn’t quite a white Christmas, it is very cold, and it did snow a tiny bit a couple of days ago.
I myself am enjoying a 3-day weekend from work, while many bastards out there are amidst an extended vacation until after the new year. Fuck off!
If I’m grateful for anything this Christmas, it’s the fact that it’ll be another year until I have to hear 87 different versions of “Last Christmas” on the radio. You know you can’t physically give somebody your heart, right? It’s the most vital organ in our bodies. You’d die. Giving your heart to somebody is not plausible. It pisses me off.
But what I am grateful for: classic Christmas movies. There is nothing better than the Christmas Story. I absolutely love that movie, and it will never feel like Christmas without it. I remember last year I said that It’s A Wonderful Life is overrated, but I’d like to take the time to officially rescind that statement. It’s a very delightful movie. But the way people talk it up, it’s easy to be disappointed with it after just one viewing.
However, when you see it again, you realize how enjoyable it is, and how great Jimmy Stewart is. He is definitely one of my favorite actors of all time.
This year, one of my gifts was the Avatar extended collector’s edition DVD. It’s been just about a full year since that movie came out, and I still love it just as much. I haven’t talked about it in a while though. But I am going to watch it some point this afternoon, and it is going to be magnificent. There’s no better place to spend Christmas than in Pandora.
Alright, I don’t want to keep you anymore. So go grab some coffee, snuggle up in front of the fireplace while in your pajamas, and enjoy the rest of your day.
