Merry Christmas to all!
It's almost here so I'm almost through my annual Christmas anxieties:
I stress out trying to prepare stuff at work so I can take time off.
I try to relax about shopping for my wife because I want to the holiday gifts to be memorable.
I want the Xmas meal to go well....what did I forget?
I hope to find a DVD for Steve B. that he doesn't have already! It's best to ask.
And now a new worry: making sure I don't ruin Christmas by saying something insulting to friends over dinner!
Worst Xmas special: anything by Rankin-Bass...Yag! I've hated all of the stuff since I was a kid.
Best Xmas special: Chuck Jone's Grinch. Still love it.
Best Xmas movie: a tie between "A Christmas Story" "It's a Wonderful Life" and the original "Miracle on 34th Street" Special runner-up "The Muppets Christmas Carol"
Worst Xmas film: no not the obvious: "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" or "Santa Claus [Mexican version]". I can't stand "White Christmas" yeech...Danny Kaye.
Best pop Xmas album: Nat King Cole's Christmas album
Worst Christmas music: Anything involving Paul McCartney.
