Um, Hello!


Happy New Year! I took a bit of a holiday, but I’m back, in L.A. and ready to provide you with all the latest scoopage about the mid season TV lineup. I also have lots of fun things to share that happened during the holidays.

I have to say it was a wicked good year for gifts from the Wii and iPhone, to the roundtrip ticket to NYC to the mortal and pestle and lovely jewelry made by friends. Yes, I must have been a very good girl in 2008. ;-)

I want to hear about your favorite gifts, or time spent with family. :-)

Also, if your curious about any upcoming shows, now’s the time to ask me questions.

I’ll also be posting short updates on Facebook and Twitter throughout the day so come hang out.

On the slate tomorrow is Ian McKellen, Richard Belzer, Lewis Black, Lily Tomlin, Kenneth Branagh, Claire Foy and the day ends with a private performance by Idina Menzel (Wicked, Rent) from “Chess in Concert.” It’s going to be a full and interesting day with PBS. :-)

So what’s up with you guys? I missed you.

  1. Happy New Year!

    So what cool things did you get for the Wii? Santa brought our daughter Rock Band 2 for the Wii, which all of the family has been playing — especially whilst we were Snowbound in Seattle. :)

    Since my wife’s from Spain, we also celebrate Three Kings’ Day — and the Three Kings brought our daughter Xbox 360 games — Lips (which we played at a friend’s house last week) and You’re in the Movies, which I’m personally looking forward to trying out.

    My two best gifts that I got were the custom Fender Telecaster my wife had made for me & the recliner my dad bought me.

    Didn’t realize you were on Facebook & Twitter too — I’ve been using them more than LJ these days, so I’ve added you on there too. :)

  2. HI!

    You have info on shows? Spill please! *G* My favorite Christmas gift may have been the Yoga mat bag that my family gave me for my yoga mat, or it may have been the gift card to the bookstore. *G*
    Glad you had a lovely holiday!
