When what's left of you gets around to what's left to be gotten, what's left to be gotten won't be worth getting whatever it is you've got left.

Christmas is coming soon! I still can't believe it. In Florida, the weather is still balmy and it hardly feels Christmas-y. Anyway, in continuing the movie count-down (count-up?), and continuing in the Christmas theme...

#7 White Christmas (1954)

I love this movie! I've actually argued that it's not a Christmas movie, in that it can be enjoyed throughout the year owing to the lack of Christmas in the majority of the film (only the first five and last ten minutes really have anything Christmas-y to them). But nevertheless, I've been watching it lately in the hopes that it will put me in the mood for the holidays.

This movie has so many wonderful quotes, which is your favorite? One of mine is in the title.

There are still a few hours left to vote on the polls! So, go cast your vote before it's too late! I'm posting up my poll for this week under last week's polls.

The poll this week is:

"Oh, that's very funny! Oh ho ho! The crooner is now becoming the comic!"

Who would you pick - the crooner or the comic?


  1. Great film! As far as favorite quote - well, I love that whole Danny Kaye/Vera-Ellen exchange (while she's wearing that adorable skirt!). "So does my spaniel!"


  2. I watched this the other night. Something that made me laugh were all the conversations about food and what they would make you dream.
