This Is My Childhood



When I was a wee Patty, I didn't think it was Christmas season until I watched Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. I absolutely loved it. And I still do!

I only have it on VHS, but I still watch it when I remember. I used to think it was the longest movie, but it's like a half hour long - which is perfect for me. Mr. Magoo plays Scrooge in a play and the graphics are insane and terrible, and it's kind of hilarious. But, I love it. This reminds me of my childhood more than most things.

But, this song is so sad! "Where is a voice to answer mine back? Where are two shoes that click to my clack.. I'm all alone in the world..." poor little baby Scrooge.

I'm 22 years old, and I'm still anticipating the Christmas season like a little girl despite the fact we're in one of the toughest economical times ever... I don't pay attention. That's the fun of it!

Its Christmas time. You know what that means?? I WANT MY RAZZLEBERRY DRESSING, BITCH.

You don't give Winter Was Warm enough credit. Its just as sad and pretty.

Also, I think that if you are going to write a blog post about Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol you should explain a little bit about it.

Like how when Mom was little they went over their aunt's house just to watch this. And the tv's picture was broken so they just sat around and listened to the songs.

Or, like the lyrics for the songs were written by Jules Styne and Bob Merrill before they wrote the score to Funny Girl.
