Glowing Electric Sex....

The house where the most Awesome Christmas Movie Ever (tm) was filmed is being turned into a museum.  Like the Bedheaded One, I too hope this will be available in the gift shop, although you can get it online, anyway....

heh. One year for Christmas, we sent out Christmas cards with the picture of the boy with his tongue stuck to the pole. I think the inside read, "erry istus" or something similar!

There's a little Ralphie in all of us. There's a huge Darrin McGavin in me, but that's what therapy's all about.

Damn that winter outfit. I still have nightmares about not being aboe to put my arms down!

I always think of the scene where the kid froze his tongue to the pole. "Don' leave me! Don leaf me!"

I actually had a lamp like that once, sold it on Ebay of course. (I didn't buy it, got it from a store closing...but I did consider keeping it)

My former boyfriend had one of these in his bedroom. He had bought it at an art festival here in Atlanta.

I used to love listening to Jean Shepherd on the radio at night, back in my Snot-Nose days...and now you can hear some of his old shows via podcast. I recommend it. As A Christmas Story attests, Shepherd was a hell of a storyteller...

What Dana said. Or, er, asked. That. Yeah. Everything OK?
