Happy 2012, Y'all!!!

Hope everyone made it through the 2011-2012 transition without any major (or even MINOR, for that matter) problems...and here's hoping the new year is a VERY Gingery one for everyone involved!
 ...well, it's been a busy week getting back into 'normal' mode, but the 'Rio' review is shaping up pretty well, and should be out by the weekend...promise. In the meantime, here's some screen caps from the film...I have quite a few more than I figured (oh, about 200...dang, it's a good thing these are 'free', lest the local photomat be required to garnish my wages...) - a neat little sequence to follow is the 'head bonk' Ginger and Fred have whilst performing the all-too-dangerous, yet irresistibly provocative 'Carioca'...






...how many times did they rehearse this one again? Honestly, this is a pretty neat part of the routine here...one of my favorite 'non-epic' routines of GandF is the "...Eggs in One Basket" number in Follow the Fleet - it's probably quite hard to choreograph ineptitude... and make it look convincing. 


One of the 'big stories' of the past week or so is that my mom is now hooked up to the internet...AND, she is perusing this very site on a regular basis...SO, y'all be on your best behavior for Ma, OK? I'm not too worried, as y'all are a great bunch, y'all are... truly!
With the addition of Ma as a follower now (well, if not in the 'official' sense, at least in the 'browse the blog once a day' sense...), I'll have to step up my game, as she is a pretty tough critic...Ginger knows that...
...Miss Rogers always brings her 'A' game to the site, so no worries there, anyway... now it's all on Huey... I'll have to break out my Thesaurus and Harbrace College Handbook to ensure proper syntax and form... Ma wasn't a teacher or anything, but she DOES read oodles of books...or, tomes, if you wish... there's occasionally even a periodical thrown in for good measure.

OK...so, Rio review this weekend...and I am thinking of a few other posts and such to do in the near future... bummer about no entry for today's 'This Day in Gingerology'... over time, all of the days will get 'filled'... no worries.

In the interim, y'all KIG!!! (...that's short for 'Keep It Gingery', Ma...)
