45 minutes all to myself

I'm extremely excited because a movie theater near me is playing White Christmas this week. I get to see it on the big screen!!!! I'm so excited!! Now that I've found this out, people keep telling me about other venues. Today one of my friends said there's a movie theater that often plays old movies. I don't really understand why no one has ever told me this before! Oh well. Better late than never. In the meantime, I can't wait to see one of my favorite movies of all time on the big screen. I'm going tomorrow night at 11:30. It's so late! But I don't care!

Anyway, I just had to share the exciting news.

Almost there...

Just a quick note to say thank you to everyone who has either claimed their choice for my holiday blogathon and to those who have already written one. I actually still have a couple of spots left. Here is the list of people who have made their claim. I've tried to comment on everyone's post so if I haven't commented, that means I haven't seen it yet so please let me know! I'd love to read it!!
I'll have a full and complete list as soon as everyone has written their post but, for the time being, here's what we have so far:
- Amanda Cooper chose Period of Adjustment
- Audrey chose Christmas in Connecticut
Monty chose The Man Who Came To Dinner
Clara chose It's A Wonderful Life
- Frl. Irene Palfry chose We're No Angels
- Sarah chose Holiday Inn
Kate Gabrielle chose Alistair Sim's A Christmas Carol
Java Bean Rush chose The Lemon Drop Kid
- Jean Howard chose Beware My Lovely

There are still 2 spots open! If you want to join in then please let me know!
If you've already written a post and I haven't commented then please let me know and I will head over to your blog asap!
And, if you have multiple blogs, please let me know which blog your post will be on so that I can link it properly when I create a more complete and Christmas-y list.

And again, thank you so much!! This has been such an exciting project!!
