Christmas Movies

I love this time of year for a lot if reasons but mostly for the movies!!! I LOVE Christmas movies!!!! There are a lot of good ones out there but National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is my favorite!!!! I love it for all of the good quotes!!! To name a few:
"Clark: Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?"

"Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse."

Aunt Bethany: "Is your house on fire, Clark?"
Clark: "No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights."

Clark: "Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?"
Eddie: "Naw, I'm doing just fine, Clark"

"Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, kiss my ass. Kiss his ass. Kiss your ass. Happy Hanukkah."

"Merry Christmas, Shitter was full"

Ruby Sue: "Rocky bit my thumb. Him's nervous"
Clark: "Nervous or excited?"
Ruby Sue: "Shittin' bricks"
Clark: "You shouldn't use that word.
Ruby Sue: Sorry. Shittin' rocks"

There's a few I should stop before I quote the whole movie! I used to watch this movie everyday from Thanksgiving until New Years. Sometimes people hate watching this movie with me because I will recite the whole thing!! I just can't help myself!

Some other good movies are of course the classics: Santa Claus is coming to Town, Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, Home Alone 1 & 2, A Christmas Story and etc. Then some newer ones like Elf, The Grinch, Polar Express, The Santa Claus and etc!

Those are just to name a few. There are a ton or other great Christmas movies out there!

I've recently read a blog someone else had written about needing/wanting a better/more positive attitude. It really hit home for me. Since I can remember I have always been reminded or told that I need to "change my attitude"! Heck, my grandmother even made up and "Attitude Adjustment Song" that she sang to me quite often! There wasn't much to it besides signing "attitude adjustment" in a high pitch but stern tone over and over again. But it shows that I have a terrible attitude! I have never been one to take a compliment well or look for the brighter side of things. I dwell on the crap that's happening and that gets me down. I have noticed myself in a terrible slump lately an I can't seem to get myself out of it! I have terrible thoughts of my self body image and terrible self esteem! I have found things to turn this around short term but I can't seem to stick with it! I have no reason to be so down I have a patient wonderful man who loves me and helps me with whatever he can, I have a great and supportive family, wonderful friends who will tell me how it is and don't pussy foot around my feelings, and an amazing dog who is always there for me and seems to understand when I need him the most! I need/want all of this! I have a decent job, not alway easy and I believe it has a lot to do with my negative mindset but things could be worse! I read a quote on Facebook today and I think it fits here "Sometimes you have to give up on the life you've planned, to have the life that is waiting for you" I have a lot of regrets, not so much for things I have done but for things that I had planned on doing and didn't do because life took a different turn. I wish I could remember more often that the things I have done/not done are what have led me to those I love and cherish so much in my life!! I want to take this time to thank everyone in my life for anything and everything they have done for me! And to let you know that from this day forward I am going to try to be more positive and look for the brighter things in life!!!! I love you all!! :-D

Below are some pictures of some of those people I love! I wasn't able to get everyone so I'm sorry if I missed you but this is a good start!
