Miracle on 34th Street - trinalin thinks things through — LiveJournal
Miracle on 34th Street
Leo woke me up1 mid-dream this morning, so I remembered bits of the dream when I awoke. I was in an art room (like none I've been in before, but I *knew* it was an art room) and a group of us are working on a project and talking. The people are folks my age and some of my students. We're talking about Christmas movies and one of my students talks about the song "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" from White Christmas. Before I'm able to contribute the trivia regarding White Christmas being one of the first movies to be filmed in VistaVision, someone else tells about it. So then I talk about my most favorite Christmas movie, Miracle on 34th Street. I inform the folks in my dream that it was released in July and the trailer said *nothing* about it being a Christmas movie2. But then I woke up before our conversation could continue.

So, having dreamt about Miracle on 34th Street, I decided to watch it tonight. And I enjoyed it as much as always (which is very much). It's my ideal Christmas movie. Tomorrow, I'll probably pick another Christmas movie from my DVD collection to watch. (Yeah, I turn into an Elf this time of year. My family's pretty used to it by now. Thankfully, I have a kindred soul in judiang!) Since I've recently finished watching all of my DVDs of The Muppet Show, I'll probably watch one of the three Muppet Christmas DVDs that I have.

1. Alas, he woke me up with the sounds of "impending yakking." Since he was laying right beside me on the bed, I pushed him onto the floor so he could yak on the rug instead. Joy joy.
2. This is true, BTW. There are times when I dream facts. Very worrying, if you ask me!

Current Mood: thoughtful thoughtful

One of their oldest Christmas specials (and my most favorite of all), A Muppet Family Christmas. Alas, the DVD, like the video, is shorter than the original special. At least one song has been expurgated. Probably some song rights or other. On a VHS tape somewhere in Mom & Dad's house is an off-air VHS with the complete special.

There's yet another Muppet Christmas DVD out there which I do not have. And that's the Rocky Mountain Christmas Special with John Denver. I have the CD soundtrack of that, but have never actually seen the special.

That thing is a safety hazard.

It gives me endless amusement just watching your brain melt. ;-)
