The world's best coffee and dancing...

I love, love my new Christmas layout. =) And playlist. It makes everything seem so cozy and Christmasy.

Of course, maybe my happiness has something to do with the fact that I actually have some free time! I'm finished with my internship, and my class is canceled tomorrow, so I get to stay home. On Thursday, I only have one class, then turning in a paper and coming home. Then a three day weekend. And I don't really have any major homework (just a presentation due the beginning of December). I'm so excited about having time to do things I want to do. Like catching up on NaNoWriMo. Catching up by 9,000 or 10,000 words. Hmm...how did that happen?

I went and registered for classes yesterday for the spring semester. My schedule isn't so great, but it's okay. And I'm excited about the classes I'm taking. My mom isn't too thrilled with the fact that two days a week, I will have classes that are later in the evening.

I have an obsessive tradition of watching every single one of my favorite Christmas movies every holiday season. So far this year, I've watched "Elf" and "Holiday Inn." I love "Elf." We watch it every year, and I think it's one of the funniest Christmas movies ever. There are so many hilarious parts that I can't even begin to describe them. Let me just say that this movie will make you cry...because you're laughing so hard. The only problem I have is that it has some language and a few unappropriate comments. But other than that, it's awesome. If you haven't seen this movie, I really recommend. Or even if you have seen it, it just gets better every time.

I bought "Holiday Inn" yesterday. I had never even seen it, but a two disc edition (with original black and white and color versions) with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, and a free soundtrack of the movie? How could I resist? I got to watch it at my grandparents' house yesterday, because I accidentally left my homework at home. It was a lovely movie. The songs were wonderful, and I love how it's not just a Christmas movie (although it sort of focuses on that). It covers every holiday, so I don't feel guilty watching it during the year (sort of like "Meet Me In St. Louis...it covers every season!). It was so sweet, and the songs were great. I felt sorry for Bing Crosby's character, but everything worked out in the end. How on earth did Fred Astaire manage to steal away all of Bing's girls? Bing isn't the most handsomest fellow ever, but good grief. Fred Astaire is not a leading man, no matter how talented of a dancer he was. Even when he's young, he looks like an old man, and he is not handsome or romantic in any way. I'm sorry, because he was such a great dancer. Still, I much prefer Gene Kelly. =) Not only is he handsome, but he could sing better, act better, and I like his style of dancing better. Anyway, I loved how Bing Crosby always managed to poke fun at himself over his ears. He and Bob Hope joked about his ears and Bob's nose in the "Road to..." series. And here he's doing it again (2:47).

I was tempted to put it some more clips, but it can wait. There's plenty of time until Christmas! Now I'm off to write a book (ha) and then watch "Dancing with the Stars." Michael Buble is performing tonight!! I really hope it's "Haven't Met You Yet." =)

Until next time,
Kristin (missvintagegirl)
