Lengthy title with parentheses. My obsessive-compulsive meter is going berserk, indeed. Nevertheless, I wanted to imply a holiday theme in this post. I am aware that Christmas has passed a while ago (only five days, yet everyone has seemingly slipped out of their holiday comas), and I hope you all had a very merry one. I, myself, spent the actual day with my mother: I made Belgian waffles for the first time, and they were scrumptious. Afterwards, I spent the following days with my dad, watching a variety of movies, not limited to Christmas-themed ones, which is quite a shock. Usually, we eagerly look forward to the moment when watching holiday movies is fitting; however, this year was rather a gloomy slump. I do not mean to say we had a depressing time together, just not as yuletide-fun as expected during the holidays. The movies we watched this week (a mere three days) ranged from conversational thrillers and dramas to comedies both inappropriate and "raunchy". To my delight, we did manage to (re)watch two of my all-time preferred (dislike the word "favorite") Christmas movies, ones I feel worthy to call classics. I'll provide a brief review for them both, while also mentioning a certain Christmas "classic" that I disagree with in terms of its revered status.
Well, I don't know about you, but I am rather satisfied with myself that I've written this holiday-themed post, as I had wished to do. Very fine, indeed. I certainly hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. Take into consideration that the time it takes you to read it took about four times as long to write. I am surrounded by distractions, and I tend to delay on occasion. But you know all that. In case I don't have access to the Internet tomorrow, or I simply will not be up to contributing my pleasantly eccentric musings. Though, be consoled to know that only dire circumstances will keep me from sharing my view on the past year. That's right, a year in review is coming soon, like tomorrow. Hope you had a magical holiday, once again, and glad to see your shining faces as always. Good evening.
