XMAS has really snuck up on me this year!  
Yesterday, I drove mom over to one of our malls and spent the day picking up the last few gifts I had to get...mostly gift certificates for the hard to buy for members of the family and stocking stuffers from Bun Penny. OMG...LOL...It was a madhouse...sooooooooooooo packed! It took us forever to get a seat in the food court! The one good thing was that I got to chat with Jase when I got home! I had missed him Friday night because I was on babysitting duty...watched my niece and nephew while my sis and her husband went to a "Snowflake Ball". We had a great time...watched movies, ate pizza and made sundaes.

So...today, I spent the entire day wrapping packages! I wrapped all of my packages and all of my mom's packages (except for my own that is)...I didn't finish until sometime after 7:00! I was drained! While I wrapped,I popped "STARDUST" into the DVD player and watched it. WOW! I really enjoyed it!



Needless to say, I plan on watching again without the distraction of wrapping packages, but I saw enough to know it was well acted, had brilliant effects, costuming, etc! I had read Neil Gaiman's book years ago and enjoyed it immensely so I had been looking forward to seeing this...and I wasn't disappointed. Now I wish they would bring 'NEVERWHERE' and 'AMERICAN GODS' to the Silver Screen!

I really liked it, too. I work in a cinema and this film got such a bad wrap from so many people coming out of it, but I enjoyed it. Maybe because Charlie Cox is cuuuuuute. And I love the new Take That song at the end of the film (I heard it everytime I went in to sweep up popcorn, and I love it!)

Merry Christmas, hun! *hugs*

LOL...well, I have been known to go easy on a movie because of a cute guy being in it, but I enjoyed THIS movieon it'sown merits! C'mon...Robert DeNiro prancing around in petticoats...what's not to like? *grin*

Have a wonderful Xmas, sweetie! *HUGS*

I would love to see Neverwhere and American Gods as films. IF they could do them justice. Stardust is one of the Neil Gaiman books that I havent read yet. I really want to read it soon.

Thank you for always finding time for your loving boy during your christmas. You are so good to me. ~nuzzles~

I adore you.

There was a British miniseries of Neverwhere done, but I didn't care for it...I loved the book so much. Somehow, I think American Gods might get an NC-17 rating!LOL!

Christmas is for your loved ones, baby boy!

Here I am adoring you back! ~smooch~
