I know, I know...

 ...this is supposed to be the 'Sitting Pretty' review...it's about 90%, y'all...just need to go thru the 'photo montage' stuff...I have a few ideas, which hopefully will work out OK by the weekend...

In the meantime, a few odds and ends...

First, thanks to Ron (yet again) for info regarding a 'festival' of Ginger Movies, to be shown at the Brattle Theatre, in Cambridge, Massachusetts (just northwest of Boston). The series runs from December 25th thru December 30th, 2011...here's the link:

GingerFilm Festival in Boston

The 'Backwards & in High Heels' Tribute is another awesome Gingery event in Boston...got to give props to Beantown!!!
...speaking of 'Backwards and in high heels', I was in a Hobby Lobby store yesterday with my daughter (I had been with her on a field trip, and we took off after lunch), and ran across this metal sign, which I have seen before, but knew at this point I HAD to buy, lest I never see it again:

...It's pretty nicely done, and has a 'pinkish' hue...I think Ginger would have loved this sign! If you told me four years ago I'd be buying a pinkish sign with high heel shoes on it, I'd have probably laughed you out of the room...yet here we are, right? Gingerology is serious juju, y'all...
And finally, I thought I had already posted this pic, but I guess not... it's in regards to an original movie poster I purchased on eBay for the GingerFilm, 'I'll Be Seeing You':
...it's a honker, to be sure... 27"x40", which is a 'style A' poster - also called a 'one-sheet', I believe... at any rate, it's big... but I really want to frame it, as it needs 'preserving' - as you can see the 'slits' in the crease marks, and the corner 'loss'. Overall, tho, it was around $5.00, including shipping, so a pretty good deal for Huey.
...AND, while we are on the Gingerbilia subject, y'all be sure to reply with whatever Santa or whoever else brings you that has Gingery Goodness to it... hope y'all get some good stuff!!!

Y'all just KIG!!!



  1. That's awesome you found the sign. I found that at Hobby Lobby two years ago and said I have to buy that!Lol..... Now it's hanging up in my room. And it's also neat you found the I'll Be Seeing You poster. :)

  2. Great sign and poster! I should go check out my local Hobby Lobby to see if they have one too, lol.

  3. GF11: Thanks! I actually saw one a while back, but not this SPECIFIC one... the one before was wooden, which was OK, but this one is just...cooler.
    As for the poster, strangely enough, that was one of the big reasons I wondered in there in the first place, to find a frame for the poster, and more specifically, frames that are 'LIFE magazine' size...I have quite a few of the 'GingerAds' from the pages of that tome...

    Betsy: Thanks! Hopefully you can find one as well...this one was $12.00, which was a bit steep, but it IS a metal sign... which probably only cost about 0.75 cents to make...hey, I just figured out there's no 'cent' sign on my keyboard! Guess there's not too many occasions in the 2011 economy to be at under a dollar, eh? :(
    I hope all is well in the Gingerella household (sorry, I just CAN'T resist calling you that :-] ) - and that you and yours have a joyous and GINGERY Holiday season!!!

    Thanks again, y'all!!!
    Feliz Navidad!


Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!

...I TRULY appreciate these, and the kind words regarding this blog...thanks for all the inspiration I have drawn from each of your blog sites, which are all awesome in their unique ways!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!

Thanks again, JW
