Yeah, wish I had a little of that Christmas spirit right now. I'm just tired. If I could crawl in the bed and stay there a few days I really think I'd be okay. Alas, neither family nor job would be very understanding of that.

So...what's up? I haven't been keeping up with my flist...yeah, I'm ashamed...and don't know what's been happening with everybody. I've also ignored coruscantnights and the community looks like it's dead. IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING YOU CAN POST THERE PLEASE DO SO!!!

I put my Christmas lights on the house this evening. Icicle lights of course, same as every year though I usually switch up the other things I put out. I have one little three foot section that is out and it's very annoying and I will have to get up the ladder again tomorrow evening to see what's the problem with them. I love those blow-up things I'm seeing in people's yards but was afraid to buy one, the cats and dog would probably ruin it the first day.

I bought It's a Wonderful Life. I LOVE that movie though nobody will watch it with me. There's a couple of people I'd like to put in George Bailey's place. I bought wrapping paper with A Christmas Story on it...you know...Ralphie and the Red Ryder BB Gun. My second favorite. I really am trying to get in the Christmas spirit.

That reminds me that I need to watch Christmas Story! I can't believe it's already the holiday season. It feels like yesterday was Halloween! >_<~

One of the networks...TNT?...TBS?...somebody used to run A Christmas Story all the time starting on Thanksgiving Day. I guess they realized it's popular so now they're being stingy with it. I'd started to buy it today, $13, but talked myself out of it since I haven't made much of a dent in my Christmas list yet. My mom actually bought one of the T-shirts with Ralphie on it and has been wearing it and my younger sister is so embarassed by that but I think it's wonderful.

Yes, Halloween was one week, then it seemed like the very next was Thanksgiving and now Christmas is barreling down on us at full speed and I feel like screaming STOP and putting everything in slow motion for a while.

<lj-user="jedi_mistletoe" has begun posting fics for the Christmas gift exchange and will continue on weekdays until the 20th. The reveal is on the 21st. Glad to hear that the holiday is warming for you. And yeah, It's a Wonderful Life gets me, too. It's the Stewart performance most of all, so bitter and absolutely back against the wall ... and then the angel gets his wings. A Christmas Story! We watch that each year. It's so very funny and inventive. Darren McGavin ought to get a posthumous Emmy, if he didn't get one while still with us. Each actor was perfect in their role, even the little brother who hid under the sink, ha!

I'm on my way to look. When you do the lj user thing, do it just like you did it the first time but leave a space between lj and user, don't use a hyphen, and the < and > at both ends. Took me forever to learn how to do the link stuff and I still forget sometimes.

I'll have to go by the community and read some. The community name drives me crazy...the thought of all those innocent, celibate (yeah, right) Jedi all lined up under the mistletoe, wouldn't that be a beautiful sight.

I love Jimmy Stewart, in most of his movies, but especially in It's a Wonderful Life. He was such a good person and tried so hard but bad things kept happening to him and you could see all his hope fading out of him. Makes me feel all weepy and sad until the end where he goes home and then everyone comes to help and is singing and handsome little brother Harry comes in...perfect.

Darren McGavin was perfect as Ralphie's dad. Of course I'd liked him before, since I had watched him in the old Night Stalker reruns that aired when I was a kid. And the mean kid whose nose Ralphie bloodied looks so much like a boy I went to school with and really disliked.
