Today is a Slacker Saturday and I can only be grateful I am not making it tomorrow morning. The question is: do I have anything to say?
I just shared this picture the other day, but earlier today we watched our DVD of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I have said it before and I will say it again: Boris Karloff is the only Grinch for me.
I was so into Boris Karloff, I almost went on to a horror movie with him, but we both wanted Christmas. I thought of the animated Christmas Carol produced by Chuck Jones. When I was a kid, I thought it was so scary! Then they stopped showing it on television. Many years later, Steven found it on video. Yay!
We are now watching Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. These Rankin/Bass specials were so important when we were kids! It was so exciting when our favorites were coming on. How terrible if it was a Sunday when Dad had a football game to watch! Sometimes he would graciously agree to change the channel if it went into overtime. It was years before I appreciated what a sacrifice that was! However, it was usually a moot point, because my show would be on the same channel.
But enough of my silly reminiscences. For one reason, I am over 200 words. Score! I’ve made my blog post! Which Christmas video should I watch next?
