Same Old Lang Syne

1) This week's song is the tale of an accidental holiday encounter between former lovers. (Hear it here.) They sit in her car and spend hours catching up, then she gives him a chaste kiss and they never see one another again. Is there a past love who still has a special spot in your heart, despite the years or the miles since your relationship? there is one I wonder about... we lost touch when he got married

2) This week's song includes a play on the traditional Scottish song, "Auld Lang Syne." Have you ever visited Scotland? not yet

3) Mother Winters has long told Sam that if she has a glass of water for every glass of champagne she drinks on New Year's Eve, she'll feel better on New Year's Day. Do you have a favorite hangover prevention tip or cure? I drink water until I have to pee before I go to sleep

4) Do you like champagne? yes, but I'm no connoisseur

5) This year at midnight, Crazy Sam will kiss the nose of her puppy, Chico. Will you be kissing anyone when the clock strikes 12? sadly, I will not even kiss Maggie the furry wonder because my parents' trip was canceled due to the storm, changing my house/dogsitting plans

6) The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy was the runaway publishing phenomenon of 2012. It was so successful that the publisher, Random House, was able to give its employees massive bonuses this year. Have you read it? I read the first novel and thought it was very poorly written

7) Year-end is a time for newspapers, magazines and websites to run lists. According to Askmen.com, Jennifer Lawrence of The Hunger Games is the at the of the year's "Most Desirable Woman" list. People magazine has declared Channing Tatum "The Sexiest Man Alive -- 2012." Do either of these two set your pulse racing? If not, who is your celebrity crush? I appreciate Channing Tatum but my heart belongs to George!

8) Pasadena, California, is known for hosting the traditional Rose Parade. It begins at 8:00 AM on January 1, so the people who watch it live must be there very early. Does the thought of getting up and dressed to sit in the California sun, bright and early on New Year's morning appeal, to you? uhmmmm, yeah, I might consider going to a major parade

9) Sometimes aches and pains that aren't serious can still really hurt. For example, Sam just dropped a can of tomato paste on her foot and the little red mark it left is making her crazy! Are you suffering through a bump or bruise or cut right now? as a matter of fact, I twisted my knee in a strange manner

Too bad about your parents' trip being cancelled. It is a gamble traveling in winter.

We could do Scotland and Ireland together: I can guide in the former and you can guide in the latter!

What do you mean? Tractors and local beauty queens sounds like an ideal parade. Have a great New year.

Re Shades of Grey -- It was just... teeny-bopper writing. It wasn't anything of literary interest...probably why it was SO easy to put down and not finish. :o/ Glad to hear others weren't impressed.

Hope your knee heals quickly.

I drink a lot of Crystal Light before bed. I can totally relate :)
