“I myself am having some Yuletide doubts.”


As per my Christmas to-do list, we curled up on the couch on Saturday night and watched my favorite Christmas movie of all time, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. This movie is just awesome and Kyle and I have seen it so many times, we can quote most of it.

Here are some of our favorite Grinch-isms:

“One man’s toxic sludge is another man’s potpourri.”

“Blast, this Christmas music! It’s joyful AND triumphant.”

“She’ll be on me like fleegel flies on a flat-faced flugelhorse! We'll, I’m sorry, Martha baby, but the G-Train has left the station!”

“If you so much as utter ONE syllable, I’ll hunt you down and gut you like a FISH! If you’d like to fax me, press the star key.”

“Kids today. So desensitized by movies and television.”

“The NERVE of those Who’s inviting me down there on such short notice! Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn’t allow it. 4 o’clock – Wallow in self-pity. 4:30 – Stare into the abyss. 5 o’clock – Solve world hunger. Tell NO ONE. 5:30 – Jazzercise. 6:30 – Dinner with me. I can’t cancel that again! 7 o’clock – Wrestle with my self-loathing…I’m booked!”

“Now listen to me, young lady. Even if we’re HORRIBLY MANGLED, there’ll be no sad faces on Christmas.”

What’s your favorite quote from your favorite Christmas movie?

OH man, that movie is full of so much hilarity. I love it!!

I can't think of a favorite Christmas movie quote off the top of my head, but I do love me some Christmas movies! Elf, Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone (1 and 2), and the Muppets Christmas Carol are just a few of my favorites!

I love the schedule line, brilliantly written and I my diary is pretty empty so I often fill it with that quote.
