Christmas 2005 (2)

Posted in A-Christmas-Carol, Film, King-Kong, Syriana, The-Family-Stone on December 24th 2005 by Randy Reichardt

.: Just finished watching the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol, also known Scrooge. It is the version starring Alistair Sim, and is considered by many to be the classic and definitive version of Dickens’ novel, which has been made into screen versions many times over. A search of “a christmas carol” on IMDb returns 48 versions of the story. Sim’s performance never fails to move me, and this time it left me in tears by the end of the film.

.: After repeatedly stating that I would spend time over Christmas cleaning my house, I finally walked the walk today, spending three hours dusting, vacuuming, and cleaning the master bedroom, as well as purging my closets and dresser drawers of enough clothes to fill six green garbage bags, which will be donated to Goodwill sometime tomorrow. Next: the upstairs bathroom.

.: Saw The Family Stone, King Kong, and Syriana this week.

.: Tomorrow is Christmas Eve (or now, I suppose, since it’s 1205 hrs MST 24 Dec 2005.) I’m fortunate to have friends with whom I will spend Christmas Eve, and then Christmas Day, enjoying their company along with good food, drink, song and merriment. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas, and if you don’t celebrate Christmas, all the best to you just the same! 🙂
