LV Ramblings Wins "Major Award"

Mr. Parker: It's a Major Award!
Swede: Shucks I wouldn't know that. It looks like a lamp.
Mr. Parker: What is a lamp, you nincompoop? It's a Major Award. I won it!
Swede: Damn, hell, you say won it?
Mr. Parker: Yeah, mind power, Swede; mind power.

Just like Mr. Parker in A Christmas Story, I've won a major award.

I've left the 10,000th comment at Kathy Frederick's Junk Drawer humor blog, and for that, I get a Junk Drawer magnet. True, it's no Red Rider Leg Lamp, but it's still pretty nifty.

Mind power, Swede; mind power!

Toss-up btw/ Christmas Story and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for best holiday movie of all time - both are classics!

A Christmas Story is my favorite.

I refuse to own it because it was depreciate having the opportunity to watch it at my discretion. Christmas goes almost all-year-round now. Thankfully, that movie has remained one of the few holiday traditions.

I should note that National Lampoon's is also a classic!

It is a toss up for me as well.

When I was a kid I rememebr seeing a movie with Dudley Moore as a elf.

I can't recall the name. just John Lithgau was the evil corporate toy maker.

Rocky was a Christmas movie. (Think of the time it takes place and when it came out.)

Hate a wonderfull life.

Hebrew Hammer is a funny film as well.

Spike, the movie you're thinking of was "Santa Claus, The Movie" - came out in the mid 80's. It was a good one!

Another Christmas classic was from the TV show "Married With Children," the one which was a take-off on It's a Wonderful Life, Sam Kineson was Al Bundy's Guardian Angel:

Let's not forget The Simpsons...

Their first episode was the Christmas special.

The first Bundy Christmas was better. With Santa hung in their yard.

Santa Claus the Movie. Thanks. I was in 1st grade when that was out.

I remember the 1st Bundy one but I like the Kineson one better. I do enjoy all of them!
