So Christmas 2008 has come and passed, and I must say Mr Kringle was quite kind to me. Honestly, it's bad when I get Borders gift cards. I have minor meltdowns by the DVDs. I was there the other day, sitting indian style on the ground looking at dvds and a guy who worked there appeared and asked if everything was alright...Yes, I'm fine, but please go away while I am "in the zone." It was also a very bookish Christmas; I received both TCM's 50 Leading Men/Ladies books, 2 biographies and Charlotte and Emily Bronte - The Complete Novels. Plus season 2 of the Mary Tyler Moore Show ;D One of my favorite gifts was Vanity Fair Portraits. It's super heavy and huge, which makes for better photographs :) I had to take a pic of this, I cracked up when I saw it: As soon as I saw that Louise Brooks appeared to be slyly ogling his hotliness Rob Lowe, I thought whoever was editing this book either did it on purpose or had no idea what they had done. Of course, nobody thought it was as funny as I did. PS: Posts will continue to be sporadic, as midterms are towards the end of January and I will be studying my buns off (which might shed those holiday pounds).
