Just a quick Season’s Greetings from all of us (me) at If You Want the Gravy…
If I haven’t explained where the name came from, or did so back in the earliest days of the blog, I’ll tell you. I was in a stand-up comedy class in college, and it seemed to me that a good stand-up needs a catchphrase.
Out of some corner of my mind came, “If ya want the gravy, ya gots to get the biscuits!” It was well enough received. I’ll chalk it up to my delivery.
Anyway, a quick heads-up as to what to expect over the next few days. I’m not committing to a strict publication schedule just now, but I’m seeing Into the Woods and the final Hobbit film today, probably catching The Gambler tomorrow, and seeing about fitting in The Interview, Unbroken, Annie, and whatever else I have to catch up on before New Year’s.
At some point, I’ll put up some awards updates (there are quite a few), and maybe an overview of just what the scoreboard is like in terms of nominations and wins.
And there will be a few more soda reviews. I drank a bottle of Fentimans Victorian Lemonade the other day. Very nice. Not necessarily nice enough to merit writing a full review, but whatever.
Anyway, have a merry Christmas, watch movies (last year I did both versions of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. That was interesting), and get the gravy.
