Day 2: What I wanted then

December 2: My 2012 Wish List

What I wanted then, I still want now: Homemade gingerbread! Men would be optimal, but I'll happily accept a gingerbread loaf or plain old round cookies.

My niece is an exceptional cook and simply refuses to make it for me. She says the kind I'll "settle" for are not the type she wants to make and she simply doesn't have time to make them the way she wants to. It also amuses her that I want them so badly. Last year she gave me ginger beer. The year before that it was a box of a gazillion little store-bought gingerbread stars. I don't recall what she did in 2013, but I'm sure this year she'll come up with yet another way to taunt me.

Day 1: Must-See Movie

December 1: Favorite Christmas movie.

Oh, Magoo, you've done it again! Yes, it's Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol (1962).

Love, love, love this. It's funny. It's witty. It's imaginative. It's touching. It's remarkably faithful to Dickens and, remarkably, it's just an hour long.

If you have a child in your life, I highly recommend you watch this together. It's an easily accessible introduction to the Scrooge tale. And if you don't have a kid in your life, well, what the hell, enjoy it anyway.

I'm up for the challenge

If it's good enough for Kwizgiver and Endomental, it's plenty good enough for this ol' gal.
