Well, why not have a Monstrous Monday on Christmas Eve? For one reason, I don’t have much else. I went running this morning, intending to do a Running Commentary. Steven and I had breakfast at Heidelberg Cafe in Herkimer, NY prior to picking up rolls for tomorrow’s Christmas feast, so I could have done a shout-out to a local business. Well, sometimes these things do not work out. Right now I want to get back to celebrating Christmas Eve with my loved ones, so I will attempt to come up with something mildly entertaining at least.
Here is another Frankenstein/Christmas mash-up: the most famous portrayer of the former reading a classic tale about the latter. But adding the macabre to Christmas is by no means original to me. There is even a line in a Christmas song, “There’ll be scary ghost stories…”
We watched two different versions of A Christmas Carol yesterday and might have watched a third if I hadn’t pooped out (I only mentioned one in my blog post; do you suppose I should go back and edit?). It is perhaps the most famous Christmas ghost story.
And now I see that I am over 200 words. Regular readers know I call that respectable, especially for my more foolish posts. Happy Christmas Eve and Monstrous Monday, everyone!
