Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Oh. Wow!

Oh my-everlovin'-sweet-aunt-Fanny Wow! We just went to see Avatar. Are you old enough to remember going to see this little SciFi flick called Star Wars and how you felt when you walked out? How the scope and sweep and excitement took you out of yourself and how your mind was set on fire with what you saw? How the characters were realer than real life and the worlds they lived in had more depth, texture, color and detail than the place you lived? Well, buckle up buckaroos, 'cuz I think you're going there again! Yes, the plot was predictable. This is a bad thing? Either the good guys win or they loose to the bad guys, and who wants to see more of that? This would be a great date movie, because it's a love story (to appeal to the girls) with lots of explosions (to appeal to the guys)and alien semi-nudity (appealing to anyone with a pulse.)The planet Pandora is beautifully conceived and portrayed, with magnificent attention to detail. And the movie has magic! You will be transported. In these less than booming times, a little magical transportation is good.

Christmas eve we sat around quietly with a plate of cheese and crackers, a plate of fruit, and a plate of raw veggies, and nibbled our way through the evening. Quiet and quite delightful. We opened presents this morning. The cats got DH a hand-cranked cell phone charger. I got him four steel thermous bottles to take his beverages to work. And a new pair of jeans. And an ipod. Now he's having a great fight with the i-pod, figuring how to make it sit up and do his bidding! He got me candy and a digital photo frame and three shopping trips. This extends the holiday. We can hit the Lush after Christmas sale, then the inventory clearance sales at the mall, then I get to shop Deva for more crinkle cotton no-iron, long-enough pants. Squeeee! I am SO spoiled!

A few memories for my new photo frame. Sunshine on the day before Christmas - photo taken at noon.

Neighborhood Christmas decor. A yule sheep.

Fly cat helping us unwrap our presents. It's mandatory that someone stick a bow on the cat's head. This year, it was my job. He endures so much for his warm bed and canned chows.

And guess who I ran into at the movies? Ho ho ho!

Hope your Christmas is merry and bright. Joy!

    What is it about cats and Christmas? Laptop had fun in the wrapping paper this morning, and then hid out in a bag, trying to dig her way out the bottom of it.

    My kids loved Avatar too. We'll have to get there in the next week.

    Fly looks very handsome in the bow :-)

    (Avatar was SOOOOOOOOO awesome, wasn't it? And YES--it was EXACTLY as life-changing as Star Wars!)

    Sounds like you and DH did the holiday up right--and what generous kitties!!!!

    It sounds like your Christmas was perfect. That is quite the handsome fellow with you at the movies! Poor little humiliated kitty (snicker, snicker). I've lived in my same fuzzy jammies for several days straight so today I must peel them off and don real apparel. Be safe if you go any where near a shopping center.

    So that is what Santa does after he delivers all the presents!!!!
    At any time did you hear him laugh HO HO HO! during the movie????

    Thanks for the review. I think we'll see it this week right after we see Sherlock Holmes (can't resist Robert Downey, Jr).

    Sounds like a lovely day!

    Avatar was cooooool, wasn't it?

    Boy. I remember seeing Star Wars in the theater. Remember how good the special effects looked back then?

    Fun stuff!
