Ah, I know the ones, soft focus camera's, and cheesy dialogue.

Often involving Santa's children (alas, I missed the premiere of Annie Claus is Coming to Town yesterday) and/or a (Christmas) star-crossed romance. Luckily it all ends happily ever after.

I never knew Santa had Children...

I saw a good Christmas horror anthology on Netflix yesterday, well worth a watch, even if it has got Shatner in it.

Makes sense, I am sure there is a Guardian article somewhere about how Santa is a bad role model.

One of my favourite Christmas movies is It's a Wonderful Life. Favourite scene when Nick the bartender tells the Guardian Angel who asks for "a mulled wine; heavy on the cinnamon and light on the cloves"

Nick: "Hey look Mister, we serve hard drinks for men who wanna get drunk fast... and we don't need any characters around to give the joint atmosphere. Is that clear? Or do I have to slap you my left for a convincer?"

My favourite Christmas movie would be Barton Fink if it had anything to do with Christmas - in its absence I'd choose Christmas Vacation - Chevy Chase is a rich man's Will Ferrell.

Yeah, I'm the same. Chevy Chase in Fletch too where he is throwing the mini basketball through the hoop in his office. I prefer the American road trip to the European vacation for the Griswolds. I can watch some of those scenes pretty easily. My kind of humour. Dead granny on the car roof and the "My Dad says I'm the best kisser in the family" line.

It was a brilliant movie, one of my favourite comedies. The scene with the dog was good as well albeit a bit sick.

Not yet, though it is "fuddle" day in work and the cake I have brought in, has been made by the wife of an elderly friend of mine, so I expect it to be at least 40% proof.

December Will Be Tragic…Again

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Like the ones that everybody knows
But I might as well keep dreaming
Because at Christmas it never actually snows

And Santa baby, if all those presents
Are delivered from your sack
Then why does it take me nine months
To pay all the credit back?

When the shops are crammed with shoppers
And tempers start to fray
As far as I’m concerned, Roy Wood
Thank God it isn’t Christmas every day

Stop the cavalry, stop the show
Stop the whole damn thing
Most of all please, please…please, please, please stop
Shakin’ Stevens from starting to sing

Now I’m driving home for Christmas
In a queue that twelve miles long
And I’ll murder Noddy Holder
If I hear another Christmas song

So Happy Xmas (War is Over)
At least until next year
It won’t take more than seven days
To lose that Christmas cheer

Now Yuletide’s nearly finished
And frankly, so’s this rhyme
Suffice to say we’re simply having
A miserable Christmas-time

believe it or not I kind of get that. Reminds me of a book I read when I was a bit younger. In it the warrior comes upon an old man being set upon outside his house and saves his life. After tending to him he asks him why he has been building a boat at the top of a hill with no water body in sight. He then scoffs at the old man when he's told that he just wanted to build a boat with no intention of sailing it. You are that man I. E. Crazy and old.

Can I ask how you came to appreciate books so much that you care about them even after they've left your possession? Do you specifically pick books you care about to purchase or acquire then limit your ministrations to those books or is it any that come your way?

I built up stock by taking any books that came my way, but now I only buy occasionally - the older the better and mainly non-fiction (fiction doesn't sell well unless you sell for pennies or have a first edition of something well-known).
I just like the look and feel - and smell - of old books. The binding, the cover, maybe a hand-written inscription on the fly-leaf - they seem to have a history to them. It would be a shame if they just got binned after surviving for so long.
I'd love to run a bricks and mortar second-hand bookshop but with the internet, there's just no money in it these days.

You'd have to own the shop outright or see if you can lease something from the government for pennies. No chance of taking a small area at the local post office or in a local ticket office?

Not exactly lunch. Imaging slapping this between a couple of fresh baguettes... mayo, lettuce, cracked pepper, chilli... washed down with a Coke.

Eastern water dragon at my Mum's place. It was digging a large hole earlier on. Has a face like Stuart Broad if you look at it close up.
It's nice having a pet dragon just before Christmas.

I've named it Julius Mountbatten Marx Windsor III... although it looks pregnant, could be a she?

Maybe you are being too harsh on Broad?

These lizards have a sort of early Elizabethan-reptilian face. A prominent well kept beard with sharp bits and jagged edges elsewhere.
Like a fiery adventurer or explorer out to seek riches and glory in the mid to late 16th Century... for some hidden Queen.

Or it could be a spy for France or Spain? Hard to tell...
