    Wilson, what happened with you and the girl from the restaurant? Did she call you back?

    As for the Jim Carrey version, I have decided that it doesn't exist. See it if you want, but don't say I didn't warn you.
    I have no plans to see the Carrey version - I just don't see how the story can translate well into a longer movie. Besides, it would be hard to top the Grinch's dog from the animated version. He was my favorite.

    Yes - enquiring minds want to know.

    Alas, she did not return my phone call. However, I remain undaunted. No longer shall I allow attractive women to pass through the grocery store unspoken to.

    She has no idea what she's missing.

    Have fun getting phone numbers from the attractive women of Atlanta.

    Yes, clearly this one was not worthy. I'm sure you'll find someone who is.

    I thought it was the UNJ-D (University of N.J. at Durham).

    Maybe she's waiting a few days to return your call.

    Don't limit yourself to the grocery store. Do you belong to a gym? How about joining a co-ed volleyball league? There are lots of places where you can meet nice women, including the internet.

    You could also try meeting women at the Brickstore Pub.

    Wilson is partly right. The Jim Carrey version exists, but it's actually an Internet hoax. Even IMDB has been fooled. It's actually a ploy to propagate the worst virus ever. If you find a DVD that says "The Grinch starring Jim Carrey" and attempt to play it on your computer, the virus will reformat your hard drive and use your email address to subscribe to every porn site it can find. If you play it on a generic DVD player attached to a TV, the TV will melt.

    So don't say Wilson and I didn't warn you...

    This is all 100% true. The Muppet Christmas Carol, on the other hand, is brilliant.

    Agreed. The really difficult pick is between Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Family Christmas. I might have to make the young Turks watch them both back-to-back and see what they think. They would probably lean toward MFC at this point, but it's been a while since we've watch the Carol.

    Is MFC available on DVD? My VHS copy is worn, and I don't own a VCR anymore anyway.

    Wow. Well, it sort of is. It's been discontinued, and the cheapest used copy on Amazon is $78.95. Christmas Eve on Sesame Street (also excellent), however, is only $8.99.

    DISCONTINUED ?!?!? <thud>

    Good gravy - I have the VHS too and thought I could pick up the DVD whenever the tape started to go... stay calm... stay calm...

    I would definitely watch anything Muppet before the Jim Carrey Grinch. I wish the Muppet Show was still on. (I may have to pull out my book - "Miss Piggy's Guide to Life" for a refresher course this week.)

    It looks like you can get the complete Muppet Show DVD collection here:

    Amazon sells individual seasons, and there's a "best of" as well...

    What?! No Emmet Otter's Jug-band Christmas??

    I'll have to defer to Wilson on that one.

    In my (hazy) recollection, I thought the Jug Band got a song (or two?) on one of the Muppet Christmas shows; I didn't remember that they made an entire special...

    That's actually an unauthorized set. The official releases are only through season three so far.
    As for Emmett Otter, yes...there was a full-length special. It's available on DVD, and they replay it on TV some years.
