AWAITING AN ADVENTURE, BUT FIRST --- WHAT IS THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS MOVIE?



I took that Meyers-Briggs test once. I don't remember the exact results or my personality type or band or grouping or whatever, but the "bottom line" was that I am not the sort of person who is afraid to take chances. It put me in the "leader" role for whatever lame corporate excercise in which I was having to participate. But, I think the results were sort of accuate. I know that I can be a creature of habit --- but, I am never afraid of change or taking risks. The way I see it, life is too damn short to ever let insecurity or fear prevent you from doing somehing. Life's journey is an inexplicable one. And, really, that is the great thing about life. You don't want to be stupid and destructive, but you don't want to be too grounded or you'll never fly!

Later this evening I am embarking on an adventure of sorts that I've been thinking about for quite a while! I am excited, nervous and more than a little restless. I just can't wait!!! No matter where this little adventure might lead -- I know I am going to have fun and am creating a memory that I will cherish. Not sure if I will ever really "blog" about it. But, if you're reading this and there is something you dream of doing or wanting --- don't let too much time slip before you go for it. Sure, you might trip up but so what? If you worry too much about what others think about you how will you ever know who you really are?

Well, there must be some intelligence in what I just wrote. I'm just not articulate enough to get put it down right.

Anyway, my roommate had a party last night and it was great! The kind of party I enjoy most. Just nice people (I don't like mean ones), some drinking/some not, mellow, laughing, talking and just kicking back and enjoying the moment. The last of the guests left a little after 1am. So, between trying to chill out and my excitement about this afternoon -- I don't think I got to sleep till well after 2:30am or later. Anyway, I sort of fell out of bed at 10am and then back into it at 11am. Just had some lunch, but my plans for the day need to be changed. I had figured I would take in a movie to kill some time, but now that it is close to 1:30pm I am worried I would be late getting to the airport.

...so, I just decided I would watch a DVD. And, I began to think -- what is the perfect Christmas Day movie? Mary Poppins? National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation? Bad Santa? Mommie Dearest? Valley of the Dolls? Beyond the Valley of the Dolls? Wizard of Oz? Funny Girl? Rocky Horror? 8 Femmes?

...no, I've decided it is the extraordinary Russ Meyer flick, FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL!...KILL! flimed in glorious black and blue!

I am about to get comfortable in my baseball jersey and pj bottoms and watch Ms. Tura Satana kick some major ass. Local celeb and artist, Peaches Christ, was showing this brilliant film this past summer. I wanted to go, but was too new to the city to figure out the night owl bus schedules. So, the DVD will have to do!

Then, I shall take a shower and run off to my adventure!

...and, I hope that everyone is having a great day and an adventure of some sort! ...not too much time! 2005 will be over soon!

And playing on my iPod Shuffle when I first tried to get up this morning:

"Angel" by Eurythmics
"It's Late" by Stevie Nicks
"Don't Be Light" by AIR
"Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division
"Satellite of Love" by Lou Reed
"Disney Girls" by Captain & Tennille
"The Man I Love" by Arthur H.

Matty, yet another movie I haven’t seen. Faster pussycat sounds very sweet though, and female violence does lend itself to the spirit of X-mas quite well. I will be thinking of you and your “adventure” tonight. Hopefully all goes well.

I remeber Captain & Tenille from the second grade. My best friend and I would lip-synch in our night gowns. The rule was, our microphones had to be red vine licorice, so we kept having to replace them. Have you ever sipped Coca-Cola through a Red Vine? No wonder we were so hyper.

And ah, Sattelite of Love.

Hope your adventure took you somewhere new -- how exciting! I'll try it (I'm a little too practical, myself, so I'm taking your advice).

Matty, you must email me and tell me about your grand adventure!

Now sorry, Faster Pussycat DOES certainly evoke all the traditional holiday imagery we know and love, just like Currier & Ives, but nobody - nobody!- in movies says Christmas like Clark W. Griswold! Christmas Vacation Rules! I watched it 4 times in the last 72 hours. Makes me laugh every time...

Hope your day was happy! xxx

Faster Pussycat is a true classic.

Gosh, I did Myers Briggs a couple of months ago. I was an ISTJ. Am going back to the Lake District in February with eight colleagues, to discuss the sixteen personality types "in depth".

It's fascinating stuff, but I'm not sure I can handle it for a full two days.

Lubin -- I love you! If you were single I would come over to England and demand you marry me!

Trashbender -- I wish I could remember what I was! ...yeah, I was at a 2 day conference, but I enjoyed it. I don't think I learned anything, but it was fun. anything is better than work, right?

Happy New Year!
