Apologies for the late Odds ‘n Ends today. I’m down with a bit of a cold, and it took a while to get up the energy to snap the new O&E pic.
You know the drill–feel free to add your own Odds and Ends in the comments section.
ODD: I’ll be touching up my Snow Miser fansite over the next day or two. It’s a really big year for the Snow Miser, because there’s actually a brand-new special coming out: A Miser Brothers’ Christmas, done in traditional stop-motion animation and premiering on ABC Family Saturday, December 13th at 8 p.m. EST.
For those who may not be aware, I’ve had that Snow Miser site up for almost ten years now. At this point, the cheap Notepad-designed look has become part of its charm, I think (though if the site ever actually becomes profitable, I may have to look into updating it a bit).
END: The MOTUC article yesterday was so well-received, I’ll be doing a follow-up piece later this week or next week with a few more quotes. Thanks to all of you who commented publicly or privately to me about it.
ODD: Dr. Mrs. Ghostal and I watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas in HD last night, and I must say, it looked great. I felt like I was watching it for the first time, it looked so good. And I’d swear there was an extra verse to the “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” song, but maybe I hadn’t been paying close enough attention earlier.
END: Did anyone catch the new Simpsons episode on Sunday? What a stinker. Lame plot, the return of jerkass Homer, the random scene where Homer dives to save the Duff beer–and it all took place after Christmas, which makes tons of sense for a November 30 episode. I actually enjoyed the rerun of the “Bird is the Word” Family Guy episode more.
ODD: Dr. Mrs. Ghostal was able to order my Christmas presents (He-Man and Beast Man) without problem yesterday. As of 5 p.m. EST today, the figures are still available on Mattycollector.com, with the 10 per household limit intact. Most people have reported a pleasantly smooth ordering process. Bravo, Mattel. Now I just have to wait another twenty-four days to get my hands on them…
END: By curious coincidence, I may receive both my set of DCUC5 and my Orion/Lightray two-pack tomorrow. I’ve promised yo go re a set of DCUC5 reviews for OAFE, and my Orion/Lightray review will be right here. Next up–DCUC wave 6!
