Colin and Hugh Appear In My Diary, Too

I'm feeling it now. The Christmas spirit, that is. I'm feeling it.

I watched White Christmas tonight on my new $25 dvd player, and it was, as always, beautiful. I've got all my Christmas movies on the top shelf; tomorrow night, I'm going to watch Going My Way.

I will probably watch Love Actually every other night. It's been my favorite movie for several years now. I watch it all year long but I feel justified during December.

When it was still in the theater, Mom and her Red Hat friends went to see it. That night, my phone rang.

Mom: Jane! You are NOT to go and see that movie.
Me: Mom? What are you talking about?
Mom: The girls and I went to see that new movie with Hugh Grant and it was PORNOGRAPHIC, that's all I can say about it, it was PORNOGRAPHIC.
Me: Hugh Grant was in a pornographic movie? I thought he saved that stuff for his personal life.
Mom: What?
Me: Nothing, Mom. Why do you say it was pornographic? What's pornographic about it?
Mom: I'm not going to go into details. I'm just telling you that it's pornographic and you are not to go see it.
Me: Okay, Mom, I won't.

And I didn't. We have no budget for the theater now.

But I bought it on dvd, used, from Amazon, as soon as it came out. I understand why an older person might call it pornographic, but heck, her warning just made me want to see it all the more.

I've been that way since I was a little kid. The best way to get me to want to do something was to forbid it.

To me, though, it's not porn. Well, maybe that one part. But most of it is just one incredible story after another. Besides, how could a movie with Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, AND Alan Rickman be totally bad?

Mmmm, Snape. Snape and Professor Trelawney, together at last. Colin. Mmm, Colin.

However, I am probably the only person on earth who absolutely hated Hugh and Colin in those incredibly boring and senseless Bridget Jones movies. Blech, she was sooooooo stupid.

Hugh Grant really plays the same character in all of his movies (himself) but much of the time it works. With Bridget, it didn't. But then, nothing did, in my opinion.

Christmas movies. And I have been wrapping presents! And packing boxes to take to the post office! Yay!

I'm worse than a child. I love this time of year.

I also have to write one more final tonight, to give tomorrow at 2:00, so I really should be starting that, or at least reading the rest of the book so I'll know what kind of questions to ask, but I'd rather do this, and then I'd rather wrap some more, and then I might watch Going My Way before I go to bed, if I go to bed. Maybe I'll watch it while I'm writing the final.

Or maybe I'll just crank my Christmas music up and groove on that while I'm working.

Yes, that sounds like a plan.
