You better watch out...
...but I know that won't happen to any of y'all...you know, last-minute shopping, prepping for the big meals, keeping all the extended fam happy upon their visits, wrapping presents, and... beginning the recovery process... oh yeah, somewhere in there is the actual Christmas observance, of which I hope y'all remember what all this is REALLY about... and yeah, 'y'all' includes moi, thank ya very much... and yeah, we're hitting the mall (again) tomorrow...
ANYWAY, not really sure what brought all that dissertation on, but... all that to say, hope all you Gingerologists out there have a great, yet reflective Christmas...
As to 'odds and ends', first off, we GOTTA have a few GingerPics, right? So...
...well, Ms. Lombard got some nice face time, anyway...something tells me she's gonna take the Big Best Actress competition in the works this year...well, you know the one Monty and Mythical Monkey headed up last year, where we propelled our girl to victory!!! ...BTW, they are 'retiring' past winners, i.e., Ginger, and Irene Dunne... so, THIS year, y'all just jump over there (I'll post stuff when it nears...) and vote for...whomever... but Lombard is the odds-on fav, it appears...
Ginger's Ma, Lela, was born on Christmas Day, 1891... just throwing that out there for your knowledge, if ya didn't already know...
Hey, TCM is showing 'Twist of Fate...this morning! Hope y'all get to see (and/or 'record') this one if ya don't have it, as it is one of the 'more elusive' GingerFilms out there... it's a pretty good film, but not your typical 'Ginger-centric' feature... it's more of a suspense deal, so... check it out.
...and to prove it...well, that sounds a bit tacky... let's just say...here's a few I've done so far, with a few choice comments regarding the process, or painfully evident lack thereof...
...it's kinda 'sad' to see Ginger smoking (glad that she quit), but...this is one of those 'caption this photo' deals, to be sure...
...so, there's a snippet of it... the 'full review' will... be... at a point... beyond this exact point... in TIME...
EDIT: 12-26-12... VP's comment link:

OK - well - y'all have a glorious, honkin', peaceful and reflective Christmas out there, and as we always like to say here...
Keep It Gingery!
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
