Die Alone

Our hero’s acerbic and aggressive attitude has caused his long distance separation from his family at Christmas. In order to see his family again, our hero must use his wits to survive against thieves who both outgun and outnumber him. During his struggles, he comes to the emotional realization that he was in the wrong in his family dispute, is at fault for his estrangement from them, and wants only to be with them once again.

This is the plot to both Home Alone and Die Hard. So if Die Hard isn’t a Christmas movie, then neither is Home Alone. I’m willing to get into the ring over this. Bring it. Yippee kai yay, motherfuckers.

Hey, if anyone is interested in living out the Rowan Atkinson jewelry store scene from Love, Actually, go buy a Sephora gift card in the Kenwood Mall. I’m fairly certain the bags and decorations I’m carrying are worth more than the money I put on the card.

The guy behind the counter put the gift card in a decorative bag inside another decorative bag. After he added two perfectly shaped decorative sprouts of tissue paper – different colors and patterns, of course – he then insisted upon placing everything in a third decorative bag for my carrying convenience. I was content at that point to stand back and just see how many more flourishes he would add. It was kind of mesmerizing.
