Bah! Humbug!

Every Christmas I try and do whatever it takes to put myself into the Christmas Spirit (whatever that may be.) In the past it has involved spending $$$$ and gathering bills I must pay in January.

Last year I decided to put the DVR to good use and I watched every film adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens’s story, “A Christmas Carol. You know the one, with Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim.

I fulfilled that Christmas goal last year, but this year I’ve decided to throw some sophistication my way and I purchased A Christmas Carol from the bookstore. I’m gonna read this bad boy if it kills me…and there is a good chance it might.

    Good luck. I have a book that has taken me almost a month to read, and still have about 100 pages left.
    I am sure it will be good read.

    I had forgotten that we watched ALL those many versions of A Christmas Carol last year. How many? Six? Eight? Fourteen? I think we can pass on all versions this year. (Except for Bill Murray in “Scrooged.” I love that movie.)
