Oh man - I love Oprah - should have put her on my list too!

Debra Sue said...

Okay, you have the honor of being the first person to tag me in the year I have been blogging. I have finally arrived.
Clerks II today, but I refuse to go to the movies on a Friday or Saturday. Too crowded. Maybe Sunday night.

Debra Sue said...

Oh yeah, about BB7 - I don't like to think about James with Sarah. I am crushing too hard. All I know is he's in a relationship....SIGH...
Yeah, HOH should be interesting.
