Wednesday, December 22nd, 1976

Rotten Day. Shoe was elected Scrooge as expected. He enjoyed the Farrah poster  I gave him. Tried my best to avoid the Christmas party but didn't and ended up with stomach-hurting milk. Nothing else after that. Ugh.

Little out over the river but I bought Randy a calendar for Christmas. Maybe SILENT MOVIE tomorrow.

Another new Python on 48 tonight.

NOTES: I don't recall Mr. Shoemaker as being particularly Scrooge-like but it seems from this and an earlier post that he was the favorite to be named as Scrooge...whatever that entailed. To be honest I haven't the slightest memory of this situation. It's like reading about someone else. And I bought him a Farrah Fawcett poster!!??

Randy is my cousin. He went on to be a professional ventriloquist, a lawyer and, eventually, a local mayor. 

MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS had actually ended production in 1974 as a series and the guys went on to do films, beginning with MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL. To us in America, though, these episodes shown on the local PBS affiliate were still brand new.
