Speaking of rhinos (as one does), you should head over to Tiny n Fit to read her recent post about visiting South Africa. She shares some sobering facts about rhino poaching, as well as some ways that you can help. (Spoiler: you don’t even have to leave your house, although you can if you want.) Finally, you can enter to win a cool Rhino Force bracelet (ends Monday).
Still need to fill out your Oscar ballot? Here’s one way to make your picks.
I was torn between two videos this week, both starring the canine star of a past Best Picture winner: Uggie from The Artist! Although this one features Uggie in a tie, the corny humor in the video below edged it out by the slimmest of margins.
Recognize that movie? I had the chance to go see the stage version last night with a good friend (hence the fact that Thursday’s post is going up on Friday). It definitely helped get me in the holiday mood – snow even fell on us at the end. (Not just confetti, but wet snow. It was a nice touch.)
Third row, baby!
I know we’ve talked about favorite Christmas movies before. However, that was two years ago, so it seemed like time to revisit the topic. My question to you – what’s your favorite? I’ll start off the discussion. My required Christmas viewing includes White Christmas (obviously), Elf, and many more…
So, tell me.. which adaptation is your favorite? As for me, there are two that top my list:
Mickey’s Christmas Carol- I’ve always been a big fan of this Disney version. Honestly, it’s probably my favorite – there’s something about this one that gets me every time. I especially enjoy Goofy’s appearance as Marley’s ghost.
The Muppet Christmas Carol - This one is an extremely close second. Statler and Waldorf as Marley? Genius. (Apparently, I really like that role.) Also, Gonzo makes an awesome Dickens. And it’s full of puns.
Now it’s your turn. Which version do you have to watch during the holiday season? Did your favorite TV show do an episode inspired by it? Tell me your favorites in the comments - perhaps I’ll have to add some new versions to my holiday viewing list!
