The Grinch Who Stole Christmas!

sappy level - low

Apparently there are some young people who are only familiar with the live action version starring Jim Carrey. I know the movie made a lot of money but prefer the original animated version.

Below is a clip from the beginning of the TV classic.

Have a great weekend.

This is the only version my son has ever seen! Long live Boris Karloff!

I love this movie! I used to watch it every year on Christmas Day when I was a kid. Can't stand the Jim Carey version....don't mess with a classic!

The original cartoon is classic and I love it to this day. I've never seen Jim Carrey's version and I don't intend to.

I want to thank you for your encouraging words about my new design blog. Merci!
It's a blue kind of day for me here in VA. but I will think of all the great words of encouragement flowing my way, cool blogs like yours, and be grateful.
I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday my time in italy, my stars! I love Italy like I love photography. It's deep.
Have a great day!

Cindy Lou Who ROCKS.

This is the only version in my book.

I was just thinking of you this morning and wondered how you were doing for your first holiday season in Italy.

yeah, this is the only version i will ever watch. why mess with the classics? My friend just gave me a christmas cd with "all i want for xmas is you" on it. That song puts me in a good mood.

diana - same here.

michelle - you're welcome

joanne - boris is a great narrator. that voice!

jessica - I don't think I've seen the Jim Carrey version all the way through.

sdg1844 - it is a classic and will be for a long time.

bastille - how do you say "you're welcome" in French? So sad I studied the language for 7 years I don't remember.

jen - I miss my family but it's really nice to be in Rome. If I can get my act together I'll post some photos of the street light.

gibber - exactly, why mess with a classic?

French lesson from Bastille:
You're welcome: de rien, now I know that you remember the pronounciation, young lady.
Oh! I wish that I were in Italy with a gorgeous, sweet Italian husband feeding great food!

Can hardly wait for you to get an Italiano!

For now I will have to reach into mon jardin secret and remember two incredible Italian boyfriends I had (not at the same time, of course!) when I lived and worked in Paris.

Happy Holidays indeed!

Ciao Bella!

Felicia, aka Bastille

Catching up has been good. Take care and have the loveliest Christmas! Good luck with the dollar. You made me say a quiet thank you about not getting paid in the New Zealand dollars of home ...

DiMackey - thank you. Merry Christmas!
