Writer's Block: What Kind of Wonderful?

A lot of people love the film It's a Wonderful Life. Some people find it to be not so wonderful. Do you have a favorite holiday-themed movie? And if so, what is it?

"A Christmas Story". My favorite Christmas movie, ever. Of course, it takes place in northern Indiana and reminds me a lot of my childhood, so I can't say how much nostaliga is involved in that.

Happy birthday to my favorite flister!

A very happy birthday to strangexgirl, otherwise known as Emily, otherwise known as my girlfriend! *does Snoopy dance* She's at home right now listening to the wind howl and ice fall on the roof, and I'm stuck at work, but we'll have a nice dinner this evening -- maybe Chinese food, if the doors aren't all frozen shut at that point. Then she gets her gift, which is all wrapped up and waiting on my desk at the moment. Um, in my office at the house, where she is. *gulp* :-)

Can't give you any pictures of her present, 'cause hey -- she might be lurking, hoping I'll announce it. I love you, Emi! *bounced up and down like a crazed Tom Cruise* How did a broken-down old wanna-be fiction writer like me get so lucky?
