Happy New Year!

Or as Ginger Rogers would say it in her fake Swedish accent in Bachelor Mother (1939):

'Appy Nuuu Chyea!

2008 was a strange year, mostly bad but not without its good points. I got my Master's degree (read my post about that here), I learned to knit, this blog really took off and I made lots of great new blogging friends. So many of the classic film bloggers and classic film fans I have gotten to know are witty, intelligent, kind and fun folks. I hope I get to learn even more about you in the New Year! And I look forward to lots of new blogging projects in 2009.


  1. Congrats on getting your Master's Degree! I always look forward to reading OOTP, I especially liked your Otto articles. Happy New Year to you.



  2. I always enjoy reading your blog... even at work which is where I am now...shhhh...:)Here is wishing you a happy and healthy new year Raquelle.

  3. What about some real Swedish for a change? Gott Nytt År! Jonas

  4. Appy Nuuu Chyea, and Gott Nytt Ar. I'm easy.

  5. Wow a Masters...I feel like a bum ;0)

    New Year's Wishes to ya!

  6. Congratulations on receiving your Master's! That's a wonderful accomplishment.

    Happy New Year,

  7. I can barely knit, but it's fun! Hope you had a great New Year :)

  8. Busby - You too!

    Thanks John! I appreciate you reading this blog and being a little naughty at the same time.

    Jonas - Hell yeah to the real Swedish. That's what I'm talking about.

    Jacqueline - Thanks for the bilingual greeting!

    Carrie - Don't feel like a bum. I feel like getting my Masters took years off my life. I'm glad it's all over.

    Laura - Thank you!

    Sarah - Keep at it. Knitting is a huge stress reliever and you end up with something to wear when you finish. Plus plus!


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
