My Christmas Wish To You

We've had an early Christmas gift-giving here at the Lab (aka The Secret Mountain Headquarters). Roy, my business partner is heading off to Vegas, so it's going to be me and Silent Bob, the landlord's dog. Bob is curled up in the chair (My chair, actually. Something we will soon fight over. He will win.) and is watching SIN CITY (uncut special edition) while I type this.

This morning, my landlord's wife came over crying - she lost her AAA card and she had a flat. No problem. Mister Bill to the rescue and twenty minutes later she was on the road. My good deed was done for the day.

Now the place is quiet. Even the traffic on the 2 and 5 freeways is down to a dull background buzz...

It's time for the annual Christmas Eve/Day marathon screening! Bob and I are going to curl up, pop some popcorn and enjoy:

LA FEMME NIKITA - Season 3
SLEEPER CELL - 2 hr. Finale
OVER THERE - 1st Three Episodes
SIN CITY - see above
GODZILLA: FINAL WARS
SERENITY
MI 5 - Season 2
THE INTERPRETER
CAPTAIN VIDEO - Serial
FLASH GORDON - the 1950's bad television series starring Steve Holland
GUS VAN SANT'S LAST DAYS
MAD HOT BALLROOM
MADAGASCAR
THE PRODUCERS
EMPIRE FALLS
THE HAROLD LLOYD COMEDY COLLECTION

So --
Have fun.
Be with people (or not).
Remember what's important and just relax.

Merry Christmas,

Bill

Hey, Merry Christmas to you too! I guess I can take one day off! I just watched some of the extras from Sin City last night. Very cool!

I got festive with The Devil's Rejects...

That sounds like a prety good holiday to me. Have a good one, Bill.

Bob and I have gone through Sin City, Serenity, MI:5, Sleeper Cell, Godzilla and Flash Gordon. Bob liked Godzilla best. Every time Big G let out a roar, Bob lifted an eyebrow (which for Bob is a major endorsement).

I can't tell you how much comfort it gives me knowing that others are doing what I'm doing on Christmas day. I was starting to think I was a pathetic loner, no presents to open, no family to hug, no robust meal to enjoy with them as joyous Christmas carols play in the BG.

Instead, I am alone here at the computer, in my jammies, eating 3 day left-over pizza, and listening to Evanescence while I contemplate going out to the movies to see Potter, Narnia and Geisha.

Knowing that so many of you are having, basically, the same kind of day I'm having makes me feel better, somehow.

Merry Christmas, Bill!

Merry Christmas to all - and the jammies and pizza don't sound too bad Kelly. I went out looking for an open coffee shop this AM - no dice.
