Happy New Year to Jackie, Zoe and all the friends I've made here. Jackie, you've done an amazing job yet again> I hope you had a good time watchign the ball drop on TV last night. I watched it here too, and was glad to not be in the crowd this year.

Looking forward to more off topic posts and chats til our shows come back on again!

Happy New Year to all of you. Jackie, I posted on your last entry and forgot to mention that I hope your knees recover rapidly. It is good that you know your "new" one can hold up to accidents.

Now I have a big favor. I know I asked once before and something came up and I forgot about it. Would someone please email me and let me know where and how I can send a donation to Jackie. She does us all a big favor letting us gather at her house, doesn't fuss and the wine spilled on her sofa and the mess we leave behind. All kidding aside, I do feel that I have made some good friends here. I would like to send a little something to Jackie in appreciation for her keeping this blog going.

Zoe, your graphics rock!

Happy New Year -
Let's hope 2009 brings us better health than 2008.

Jackie I hope your knees feel better soon.

Becky- there should be a link on the right side of the screen on Jackies main page that says make donation. I believe it goes to a PayPal account.

Jackie, I think you have my email address. Since I do not use pay pal, please send me a snail address (your work one would do) so I can send you a check.

You've outdone yourself, Zoetawny!

Happy New Year to everyone here. So many of you have become great friends in the short time I've been here. I look forward to the shows coming back so we can talk about them!

Great graphic Zoetawny, as always! I miss you.

Jackie, I said all my mushy's over on the last post but want to include Zoetawny here. Love the graphic..you do such good work. If it only played Auld Lang Syne. Now I guess I'm expecting a little too much...but then I've been known to do that.

becky: could you email me, I have something I want to ask you. marge77bsc@aol.com Thanks.

Happy New Year Jackie, one filled with good health, and fit knees for sure.
I miss my Survivor, my BB, too, but this group gives so much love and support all year round its just awesome.......

becky said...

MEB, it's done. Looking forward to hearing from you.

meb said...

becky... thanks... I just realized that I can't get into aol here at work... so I'll talk to you later tonight. Get off here at 5:30, have to go to the club, then go to the store, then we'll talk... Thanks.

Just wanted to make you guys aware of something I found blogging that you might want to take advantage of.

I found this site through Sydney's Stocking Stuffer post.

I asked for permission to tell you about it...

So, this gal Cher is writing a book and posting it on her blog site. It's really very good and sometimes keeps you on the edge of your seat. She posts a chapter about twice a week. She's on Chapter 9, but you have to start from the beginning.

If you'd be interested, click on my name and run down the list of blogs I follow and you'll find "Shuffle". Click on it and go there...start to read with Chapter 1... Leave a message and tell her meb told you about the site.

I really believe you'll like the book. And no, I'm not receiving any royalties from it. LOL

Jackie, I hope it's okay that I posted this here. Thanks.

Say it is not true:

Dancing stars Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff have gotten engaged, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Dang another hunk bites the dust!

Petals said...

Hey! If you go to ABCs The Bachelor link, the clip that they have running now is my pal, Shannon. She's in a red (very low-cut) dress. She doesn't look anything like that in real life, but it sounds just like her.
It'll be fun watching her. I know she gets eliminated pretty early on...maybe because she knew too much about him/

Petals said...

Wonderful New Year to Everyone!

meb said...

Was just watching the new dance show... totally forgot the name already... and watching Russia, kept looking at the guy. I knew I knew him from somewhere ...finally figured it out... it was Pasha from So You Think You Can Dance. They were pretty good. I didn't watch all of it, have it taped... will finish watching tomorrow.

How many times did I saw watch in that paragraph? Need a new vocabulary!

Clementine said...

Happy, happy New Year and best wishes to all for a healthy, prosperous 2009! I think it's going to be a great year!

Thanks to Jackie for our little meeting place and for all the great content you provide. And thanks to Zoetawny for the fun graphics!

Now, on to the news of the day...
Maksim and Karina are engaged?? What happened to Mario Lopez? I wish them well, but they seem like two people who like to be the center of attention, so it will be interesting to see how it works out. I'm sure DWTS will hype the heck out of it next season!

Meb, I also noticed my lovely Pasha and also his partner Anya from SYTYCD! And the pop-locker boy competing for the US was also on the auditions for SYTYCD, but didn't make the top 20.

Petals, I watched the Bachelor clip and ROFL!!! I know it's probably editing, but she said she wasn't a stalker so many times, I was laughing at the look on Jason's face! Too bad your pal left early, because she seemed like she'd be fun to watch. And she looked gorgeous in that dress!

And congrats to Laurie on her Chargers pulling out a great win against the Colts last night!

Oh well, I had a nice long weekend, but it's back to work tomorrow. Is there anything good on tv this week?

Donna in AL said...

Happy New Years everyone a few days late!! I love the pictures Jackie and the graphic by Zoetawny. I look forward to more off topic pictures and stories.

I have alot of reading and catching up to do since I've been sick since last Wednesday and haven't been where I could get online!!

meb said...

sorry you were sick donna in al... didn't know it...

don't remember Anya from SYTYCD... do remember the guy from US. He was the one that was given a chance to be in the top 30 or 40, but refused. Guess he just went to the auditions to be noticed... guess it worked too.

Macs and Karina..yuk! Love Macs, like Karina as a dancer but don't like her reactions to the judges.

Delee said...

Many shows return this week with new episodes.

Plus Nip Tuck starts Tues and Damages on Weds. This viewing season seems so different than past seasons with re-runs all the time.

Petals said...

Nip/Tuck!! Awesome! Except I hated that they may have "jumped the shark" a coupla seasons ago. I liked the show alot more when it was in Florida.

sizzie said...

Donna, hopeyou are feeling better. I missed you on the board, but thought you might be on a holiday trip with your family. Sorry to hear you haven't been well.

Happy 2009!!!

Becky - I, for some reason, don't seem to have your email address. These blogger comments don't provide it although I thought I had it at one time. If you send an email to jackiestvblog@gmail.com, I'll get back to you.
