Merry Christmas Eve

Home 8:30PM I lie back on the couch patting my stuffed belly and gazing contentedly at my two chums, Elsa and Trinalin.   Santa Trinalin passes out the presents from under the twinkling tree.  Fake embers glow not too unconvincingly in the fireplace.  O Holy Night plays from speakers on the mantle.  Patty lies on […]

I’m out holidaying with my chums.  We had dim sum in Chinatown, geeked out at Best Buy and will head to the Chicago Shakespeare Company to see Dicken’s Women with Miriam Margolyes.  So, enjoy one of my favorite perverse holiday songs, Grandma Got Run Over by A Reindeer by Elmo and Patsy.  Why perverse?  Well, just listen.

Just returned from seeing Sky Fall with Daniel Craig.  His body is hot and he cleans up nice but I wanted a bit of pretty.  Let’s see if this is adequate. Hmm, I’m not complaining. Enjoy.

…Well, actually Claridge’s. Guests are arriving here for the weekend.  They want to see… The Hobbit.   I meet up with a fellow fan next weekend.  She wants to see…The Hobbit.  Did I mention I’ve seen it twice already?  ARRRRRRGH!  While I deal with this Hobbit glut, think about this: the age of bagginshield fan […]

My muse and I are arguing so this will be short and sweet.  And pretty.  Enjoy. Santa probably won’t bring me any presents now.  Sigh.

I love this promo with Martin Freeman asking Richard Armitage short questions.  RA is relaxed, jokey and appealing. It’s longer than 60 seconds, but that’s okay.     A few observations: Aha! I knew he had enough vanity not to let himself go to pot.  My shallow fangurl is SO relieved. I’m stricken he won’t get […]

RA Break Day

This is another mental health day.  Still have a review of The Hobbit movie itself and RA’s report card to go before I’m done with the whole thing.  I still haven’t started any writing for Christmas week, so I’ll toss it to you Dear Reader: What would you like me to write? Anyway, I painstakingly […]

I’m not a Tolkien fan, having never read any of his books.  I saw all of the LotR trilogy  enjoyed them, then promptly forgot them, except for Gollum and his precious. I wouldn’t have been particularly interested in seeing The Hobbit were it not for Richard Armitage being cast as Thorin.    So my knowledge of […]

I’m recovering from ho ho ho-ing at a Christmas party.  Elevate your minds Dear Readers!   So I want to share my recuperation by highlighting one of my favorite fun holiday cartoons, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  Based on Dr. Seuss’s book of the same name and narrated by Boris Karloff, this was an annual holiday […]

I’m still pondering my review of The Hobbit and Richard Armitage’s performance, but first had to check that asylum invitations in Europe were still good.  They are.  Whew.   So, I shall tread foolishly on. Erm, here, have a picture. Yes, there’s nothing surreal about this post, but RA obliged a Finnish interviewer by singing […]
