Well I sure hope you're wrong about Etta and Aretha.

You still haven't gotten the knack of this, but glad you keep up with the tradition.

And thank god you have kept Newhart, Cohen, Marshal and Michaels safe for another year!

Darev, Bob is 82, tick, tick, tick...

Mark, Etta is circling the drain as we speak.

Auntie, we shall see. Even a broken clock is right twice a day... that is except digital clocks.

Why Penny Marshall?

Also, as far as decent movies go:

rent Box Full of Moonlight, Moon, Timer,

Saw a few good recent ones (indies as well) The Way...you'd like it, and The Descendants...saw Charlize Theron's recent flick too, terrible. But I like small budget films...

Are you reading Game of Thrones? I read them all, Hbo's version of the show is pretty good as far as shows go, and of course, Downton Abbey

Unfortunately you have #1 right already. Hope this year doesn't just go down the list!

I'm putting a young Hollywood starlet on this one. Maybe a Kardashian (here's hoping? So bad!) or a Lohan... Spears seems to have cleaned up her act... Angelina, maybe? Poor Brad, left with all'a them kids...
