What's New? A Podcast of: It's Snowing, TV Talk, Paula Abdul is Slutty, and I Wish "Hello, Hannah Montana."

The Dude on the Right does a podcast, but thankfully none of it has to do with Apple Webclips because with that topic he's already wondering what he might have done. For the podcast, though, he is happy to see the snow that Chicago is getting and thinks an older lady might want to move. Some TV shows are coming back, namely "Lost" and "Survivor: Micronesia," but The Dude is still having a problem getting excited about the Super Bowl. He was excited about Paula Abdul looking slutty on "American Idol," but isn't excited about the movies opening this weekend, except for one he didn't get tickets for yet, namely "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert in Disney Digital 3D."

It looks like no screaming teens are in store for The Dude on the Right. There are so many things about that previous sentence that sound so wrong. Umm, let's get back to hot chicks on "Survivor."

I Wasn't Sure What to Blog About Until I Remembered that I, too, have been Pooped On.

By: The Dude on the Right
I was debating what to blog about today.  I could get political, talking about the repercussions of both Rudy Giuliani and John Edwards leaving the Presidential race today.  I fully understood Rudy Giuliani's exiting after Florida, in a message to every political strategist to never ignore Iowa and New Hampshire (although I still don't fully understand their influence), but didn't John Edwards, just a week or so ago, say he was in it until the convention?  And with him leaving the race why isn't he endorsing anyone yet?  Could it be that someone finally whispered in his ear saying "John, you've got no chance in hell to win this thing.  Get out before "Super-Duper Tuesday" so you don't muck up the numbers and then we can start to see who the front-runner really is because we don't want to endorse the loser, do we?"

Then I was going to blog about even at my being 40 years old, there is incredible hope for me to land a hottie.  It was in a news blurb the other day when, and I don't know how I missed this news, that Ryan Reynolds is dating, though not engaged, to Scarlett Johansson.  Most of you probably have no problem realizing who Ms. Johansson is, namely the 23 year old gorgeous, perfect, woman, but I'm guessing the name "Ryan Reynolds" doesn't rank too high in your book of Hollywood celebs.  Two words are simply in order for Ryan, and they are Van and Wilder.  That's right, he was Van Wilder in the movie with the same name.  As hope for me, with eight years being the age difference, I did a quick check and it looks like if I want to do the actress direction I should be dating the likes of Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Milla Jovovich, and if I wanted to find someone more on the musical side, K.T. Tunstall seems like a fun dudette to hang with, but how could I, in the end, deny Charlize Theron the man that is The Dude on the Right?

But since politics can be an explosive subject, and with my self-esteem not being able to handle the crushing blow of a rejection from Charlize, I heard about a video on YouTube today that reminded me of days that I was pooped on, literally.  One was when I was working in downtown Chicago, for a camera store, and on a trip out for lunch I walked a little too close to the buildings forgetting that along with crowding the sidewalks, sometimes the pigeons like to hang out on the building ledges about five stories up.  Walking along I suddenly caught a white blob, out of the corner of my eye, on my shoulder, and sure enough, I was pooped on.  Then I recalled another time, on the way to a Chicago Cubs' game, when a shortcut to Murphy's Bleachers from the El-stop (that's an elevated train for you non-Chicago folks) is down the alley the El runs along, when suddenly I feel something plop in my hair.  Luckily I had some napkins in my pockets to clean up the heavenly present.  I have also previously done a podcast on the terror that are Canadian Geese, and mark my words, the downfall of the United States might be by geese.  All of that said, I have never done what this reporter did during his news report, but it leads to loads of fun, at least for us watching.

Winged creatures might just be the death of us all!

What's New? A Podcast of: An Apology, Movie Talk, Some New TV and MTV, but No Stu.

Even though it's normally a day for a Weekend Wrap-Up Podcast with Stu Gotz, The Dude on the Right and Stu couldn't figure out how to meet up today so The Dude on the Right handles the podcast duty flying solo. The Dude apologizes for his choice of words in yesterday's blog, which he has since edited, but doesn't apologize for liking the new "Rambo" movie. But mostly TV is on the mind of The Dude and he thinks it's time for MTV to change its name because seriously, what do constant "America's Next Top Model" marathons have to do with music?

Missing the Award Shows, Movies and Movie Previews, and an iPhone WebClip.

By: The Dude on the Right
With this weekend coming to a close, and my having "The Screen Actors Guild Awards" on my TV, I realize that as much as I have been hating not getting new TV shows, other than the reality ones, I do miss the award shows that propagate the airwaves at the beginning of the year.  Why?  It's not the crap in between the awards because who really wants to hear bad jokes that can't offend anyone, but I do miss the speeches from those that win the awards, especially from those who are surprised they actually won the award.  We missed the drunken ones that might have happened during "The Golden Globe Awards," but damn, I hope the writers and the TV and whomever folks need to do it come to an agreement so that "The Academy Awards" can be the exploited award show we have grown to know and love, and maybe just give us that one speech, from one surprise winner, to make us dream (I'm cheering on Ellen Page).

On another note, this weekend saw me getting to see a couple of movies, namely "Rambo," which I really liked, and "Meet the Spartans," not so much.  I also got all of my movie previews up to date, thanks mostly to Tiger Woods making The Buick Invitational one of the most boring golf tournaments ever by beating the crap out of the competition, and the CBS announcers sounding like little schoolboys trying to call a golf outing, with one already pronouncing that this will be the year Tiger Woods wins the Grand Slam of golf and another (or maybe it was the same dude, I get them confused) upset because no one was able to get a birdie on the hole he was covering.  I know Tiger was so far ahead that it was nearly impossible for him to lose the tournament, but for goodness sake, can't you golf announcers control yourself?  He skipped Hawaii; it's only January; 2008 is the same length as any other year; with 320 days left, on any given day in 2008, Tiger might lose a tournament; but where is the dignity that is golf?  CBS folks, please go back and listen to your broadcast and boot the crap out of the broadcast of those who have already lost their minds in January.

And finally, on a last geek note, I have said before that I have an iPhone.  Fine, I'm a geek.  With the Macsomethingorotherconference, the world of Apple gave me another iPhone update, still leaving me without the ability to cut and paste, but that's another blog for another time.  What they did do, for the firmware update of 1.1.3, was give the iPhone the ability to add a WebClip to your iPhone.  Pretty much it means that on your iPhone homepage you can have a cute little graphic that when you touch it, well, it will open the web page associated with that WebClip.  Hell, that's too complicated to explain.  Look, if you have an iPhone, and you like our web site, Entertainment Ave!, go to our home page on your iPhone, click the "+" at the bottom of your iPhone screen and add us to your homepage.  We, unlike other non-cool sites, will have a cool icon on your iPhone that looks like our favicon, that when you touch it on your iPhone (and it also works for your iTouch, I think), instantly logs you onto Entertainment Ave!, keeping you informed of what's new.

Be smart, be safe, and if you like TV pray that the TV folks give in to the will of the writer folks, otherwise 2008 will be the year of reality, and who wants that, unless, of course, the dudettes on "Survivor: Where Ever They Are." are hot and get hotter with losing weight.

What's New? A Movie Review of "Meet the Spartans."

The Dude on the Right went to see "Meet the Spartans," and he even wrote a review about it. Although the movie did make him chuckle at times, there were only three things he used to give his final rating. Actually there were four things, but since two of them belonged to Carmen Electra, he left it at three. He also has grown very tired of Paris Hilton being the go-to fodder for spoof movies because there just isn't any more originality there.

What's New? A Movie Review of "Rambo."

Darn do-gooders. There John Rambo is, relaxing and getting on with his life in the jungles of Thailand, and they want to help people in Burma. Now Rambo has to kill people again.

Anyway, The Dude on the Right thought Sylvester Stallone did some nice closure with the Rocky character when he put out "Rocky Balboa" last year, and now, for this movie review of "Rambo," The Dude thinks the same has been done for one John Rambo. The movie gives you exactly what you probably expect from a "Rambo" movie, but he does say they up the violence quotient a lot, maybe to make some of you realize just how brutal some of the violence is in places like Burma. The only Sylvester Stallone character that now needs some closure is John Spartan.

What's New? A Podcast of: Get Me To Hollywood, Amy Winehouse, and TV is Back, Sort Of.

For this podcast The Dude on the Right admits that this one is kind of lame, but he does do a short parody of "Rehab" in honor of Amy Winehouse. He's also a bit flustered with "American Idol," is looking forward to the return of "Lost" and "Survivor" to fill up his Thursday nights, and wonders about the writer's strike and will it ever end.

What's the Deal with Food? And, Oh Yea, My Niece is a Rocker!

By: The Dude on the Right
With the passing of my father, and not wanting, yet, to get into some of the philosophical questions an event like that can bring, there was something that came up prior to his funeral that I suppose I can understand was important in the older age of funerals, but in this day and age, especially when my dad wanted a small, private funeral ceremony, why do some people assume that you need food and just show up with it, unannounced? And why am I conflicted with this topic because in the same gesture (by a different family friend) I was able to remember a dish I love?

Now I’m not saying the bringing food gesture isn’t nice, but shouldn’t the gesture start with a quick phone call offering condolences and then tossing in a "If you’d like I can bring you a ham dinner, complete with vegetables, coleslaw, and a store-bought jello mold in case you need something to eat?" But no, there it was, the night before, or maybe it was the night before the night before the funeral (they blend together right now), that a friend of the family showed up with half a ham, vegetables, coleslaw, store-bought jello mold, and lots of conversation for my sister to hear. The issue was that, in the land of the "on the Right" family, we had already planned for a small gathering of family following dad’s burial by securing a party tray, which, fine, for this occasion should probably be called a remembrance tray, but in any case the family refrigerator was already ready to be packed. Somehow, and God bless Sis on the Right, she found a way to stack, move, renegotiate, and fit everything in there, including the ham dinner, so that no one would get sick, and let me tell you, she knows all about the importance of refrigeration and reheating with her job in Lunchlady Land!

My confliction on this issue comes because even though the gesture on the part of our one family friend was nice, but wasn’t necessary, well, a neighbor baked a small dish of Noodle Pudding, and oh my God, it was so good. I forgot about Noodle Pudding, haven’t had it in years, and after getting back home found some recipes on the internet to try (although I should probably just call our neighbor and get hers, because, can I say it again, it was so good), so even though one family friend went a little overboard with her food gesture, that small dish of Noodle Pudding really hit the spot, and as more important in the time of comfort food was necessary, my mom loved it.

I guess I'm just really confused about sending food to the families of those going through the loss of a loved one, especially with the joy and tastefullyness of the Noodle Pudding that came our way, so to alleviate my confusedness, and because it's really not long enough for a blog, and because, during my "A New Chapter for the "on the Right" Family" blog, I mentioned how my niece is a rocker, I thought I would include in this post, my niece being a rocker.  Sorry for the sort of crappy video, but I think it really shows that my niece ROCKS!

BFF and favorite niece - YOU ROCK!

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! Lots of Movies, Mama Gotz's Issues, A New Ringtone, and Peeing on a Stick.

Being away from each other for a week sure doesn't put a kink in the conversation Stu Gotz and The Dude on the Right can put together for a "Weekend Wrap-Up" podcast, and they get right back into things for this episode. The weekends usually include a lot of movie stuff so they talk about that, Stu got a picture from Mama Gotz so they talk about that, Stu saw a pregnancy test commercial so they talk about that, The Dude has a new favorite ringtone so they listen and talk about that, and even though The Dude on the Right doesn't give a damn about the upcoming Super Bow, they talk about that anyway. And if that isn't enough they have other things to talk about, and they talk about that, too.

What's New? A Movie Review of "27 Dresses."

The Dude on the Right is still trying to figure out why the three hot women who came to see the movie didn't just jump him in the movie theater, but a dream unfulfilled didn't stop him from reviewing "27 Dresses." This movie appears to be one that is totally for the ladies, because even though The Dude can dig a romantic comedy, "27 Dresses" seemed to lack anything at all testosterone, even with Katherine Heigl looking fantastic and Malin Akerman wearing skimpy outfits.

A New Chapter for the "on the Right" Family.

By: The Dude on the Right
Every family has a change leading to a new chapter in the book that is their story.  Most of the chapters progress from things like the start of the book, namely the marriage, to the birth of a child, to the child's first words, to the child's first steps, to maybe the birth of a brother or sister, and much of the cycle usually stays the same for a while.  The chapters switch from the innocence of children, to the family progressing through the years.  The children in the family grow, to grade school, to junior high, to high school, and to adulthood.  A new book is started as some of those children create another family, an offshoot of the original story, yet still intertwined with the original.

And as the book that is a family's life is similar for all, there are so many differences.  There may be an illness or accident that takes a child away from a family;  There may be financial hardships that all must deal with;  There may be a divorce where mom and dad, not thinking of the children, do their best, at any chance they can, to make their children hate the other parent; and then there are families that, for most of the time, forget the meaning of family.

But with every family story, probably, usually, definitely, inevitably, there will come the death of a parent/spouse.  Sometimes that death comes as a shock and other times not, most will agree the death comes to soon, but for some it is way too soon.  With that death the story continues, though, with one character now only in memory as the next chapter begins with getting back to some normalcy, "some" because with the passing of a family member things aren't the normal that was created a chapter before.  The book that is the story of the family is not complete with the death of one member, more chapters must be written, until that day when the book can be closed when all of the members have passed on.

Fine, right now you might be saying to yourself a couple of things, things like "Dude, what's with the reflective beginning to this blog, and why haven't you posted anything new in over a week?"  Well, both the reflective nature of the opening of this blog and the lack of postings came about because of the passing of Dad on the Right on January 12th, starting a new chapter in the book of the "on the Right" family.  In the realm of my being old enough to fully comprehend and have to deal with the loss of an immediate family member, the recent passing of my Dad is the first.  I was 11 when my last grandparent passed away, and even though I've been older for the deaths of some of my aunts and uncles, and yes, their passings were sad, for me this death thing is kind of new and a lot different to deal with.  Sure, I could probably go see a shrink to help me "move on" as it were, but what fun would that be and why would I spend the money when I could just write about here it from time to time.

So, today's therapy lesson was two-part.  One was to reflect that as much of a bummer it is to have my dad die, I realized that my family's story isn't done yet and there are already stories to tell of the days immediately following when he passed, stories like "What the heck is his name, anyway?", "Who knew driving to a cemetery could be so much fun!", "What's the deal with the food?", "Niece on the Right is a rocker!", "That's not an obituary.  This is an obituary!", and "Everyone says 'Mom on the Right' is a hottie."  And Mom, if you're reading this, don't worry, one story will remain in the circle of our family to laugh at from time to time.

The second part of my therapy lesson was to get back to some normalcy, and what better way then seeing a movie, in this case "Cloverfield," and write a review.

So the story of the "on the Right" family continues, and at least right now Sis on the Right has her own book of her family so that even when the book of the "on the Right" family is closed, another book will lead people back to our story.

Stories are always to be read, but better to be written, even with a death as part of it.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!

What's New? A Movie Review of "Cloverfield"

In his getting back to some normalcy The Dude on the Right went to the movies. He saw "Cloverfield" and for this review he didn't like it that much. He did, though, appreciate the originality of the movie, but for most of it he found himself laughing at the stupidity of the crew of people, and damn, that dude's video camera has one hell of a battery. It's popcorn-fun at the movies if you are looking for a little bit of an escape, just don't take the thing seriously.

What's New? A Podcast of: 2008: What a Strange Year It's Already Been

The Dude on the Right is already flabbergasted at how strange 2008 has been, and it's only ten days in. For this podcast he leaves the family stuff for later but instead delves into Britney Spears and Dr. Phil, wants The Academy Awards to go on but only if the writers get their stuff, and now that Sony/BMG is going to let Amazon sell music/mp3s with no copyright protection, why no love yet for Apple who, sure, wanted to sell a bunch of iPods, but showed the world some people would actually buy music over the internet.

The Dude is also flustered by the elections and the influence Iowa and New Hampshire have on the entire picking a President process, but he has at least 11 reasons why he is looking forward to this season of "Survivor: Micronesia."

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! Movies & TV, Britney & Lindsay, Weather & Delilah.

Stu Gotz and The Dude on the Right finally get back together after weeks of being apart to do another "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast. If they didn't trim things down this podcast would probably last a few hours, but they cut things to some recent movies in the theaters as well as movies on Stu's Netflix cue. The weekend brought huge entertainment news about the latest BUI (Britney Under the Influence) and Dr. Phil (Stu & The Dude disagree on the Dr. Phil factor), and why not talk about Lindsay Lohan's New Year's Eve while they're at it. Chicago had a warm spell, and The Dude watched "American Gladiator." And Stu still likes tormenting The Dude about the song "Hey There Delilah." Stu can be a mean, mean, man.

Smoke Detector Nightmares

By: The Dude on the Right
As I have stated before in some blogs, I sometimes find myself just a tad crazy, obsessive, or just bizarre.

Case in point...

So the other night I'm sleeping when I wake up to a familiar chirp.  I knew I didn't have any 9 volt batteries in the Dude-Pad so I close my bedroom door hoping to deaden the noise.  I manage to sleep through the night, waking up every now and then to a chirp, but figuring that in the morning I could track down which one of my three smoke detectors the chirp was coming from (I was guessing the living room area because it wasn't loud enough for the upstairs one nor quiet for the basement).  I woke up that morning and got myself a gun.  No, wait, sorry, that's the theme from "The Sopranos" and a great song from Alabama 3, but I digress.  I woke up that morning to find there was no more chirping.  Remembering that I failed to change the batteries in my smoke detectors when we fell back in November, I figured the battery issue might have been caused by A) My having the thermostat turned down to a balmy 60 degrees at night so when the detector warmed back up in the morning the chirping stopped, or 2) My humidifier was messing with the smoke detector, in conjunction with the balmy 60 degrees, and again, when the detector warmed back up in the morning the chirping stopped.  In any case I figured it wouldn't hurt to change the batteries in all of my smoke detectors so that afternoon I picked up some batteries, pulled out the step-stool, and changed the batteries in my smoke detectors.  The Dude-Pad was safe once more, or at least I would hear a fire coming and try to figure how to get the hell out.

I went to bed.

Sometime about three the next morning: "Chirp.... Chirp....  Chirp....", and I roll over saying to myself, "Self, what the fuck?  I changed all of the batteries, what the hell is going on?"  So I get out of bed, stand under the upstairs smoke detector, hear the next "chirp" from below me, then head down the stairs to the living room.  I stand there, in the dark, in my undies, staring at the living room area smoke detector (because it could still be the basement detector), only nothing chirps.  One minute.  Three minutes.  Ten minutes later I'm still standing there, in my undies, and no chirp.  Confused and tired I head back to bed only to be woken up again, around four in the morning, to new chirps.  Pissed off I close my bedroom door again figuring that by morning the chirping will be gone again, and sure enough it was.

Another day goes by, another night of chirping begins, another standing, staring, shivering, in my undies, under my living room detector goes by, then I wake up in the morning, don't get myself a gun (although at that point I really wanted to shoot my living room smoke detector, just for the hell of it), and I head to my basement area to exercise.  And just as I'm about to put my headphones on in preparation for a stationary bike ride I hear a chirp.  I now know the basement detector is not the culprit and head up stairs.  I stand under the living room smoke detector and hear a chirp, only it's not coming from the smoke detector, it's coming from my piano.  I know my piano can't chirp, I know Steve, my clownfish in the fish tank next to the piano can't chirp (although how cool would that have been), and then I remember my carbon monoxide detector was plugged in, behind the piano, and sure enough, it was the damn thing that was chirping, keeping me up at night, and hell, who remembers that your carbon monoxide detector has a battery in it, let alone that you need to change said battery.  I had one extra 9 volt battery left from my smoke detector upgrades, popped it my my carbon monoxide detector, and sure enough, no more chirping.

As much as they harp on changing your smoke detector batteries when we spring ahead or fall back, and maybe I'm not paying enough attention to the harping, but as a public service announcement to you, our loyal reader, don't forget changing the battery in your carbon monoxide detector so you won't wake up, countless nights, wondering where the hell the chirping is coming from.  Trust me, it won't be your fish talking to you.

Just a little tip for the new year.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!

What's New? A Movie Review of "One Missed Call."

Dare he say it. Dare, dare. But yes, he did, The Dude on the Right dares to say it that "One Missed Call" is the best thriller of 2008. Sure, it's only January 5th, but The Dude probably throws all of his credibility as a movie reviewer out the window with this 3 star rating (and he so wanted to give it 4 stars), but he's got his reasons and in the end it's because of the children, or at least the teens, who won't have to see "The Water Horse" the weekend before they go back to school.

What's New? A Podcast of: Flip-Flopping the Iowa Caucus, Lindsay Lohan, Lions, and Tigers.

The Dude on the Right does his first podcast for 2008, wonders about the Iowa Caucus results, but he flip-flops on his initial thought about the caucus process. In the end he sees a plus side to the caucusing, namely picking up dudettes. The Dude didn't see the return of the late night talk show hosts, even though David Letterman's beard seemed to be the big news, and some jack-load gave Lindsay Lohan a bottle of champagne. On a lighter note The Dude also ponders the fact that tigers and lions like to eat people sometimes.

Our First Blog of 2008, and Do You Want a Free Bag of Cheese Curls?

By: The Dude on the Right
What better way to start a new year, albeit a day late, than with a new blog!  At first I was going to work on the transformation of Entertainment Ave! to 2008, which pretty much just means a global search and replace of the website thus changing the copyright information from "1996-2007" to "1996-2008," and also including a link to our sister site,, but then I wondered why would I link to the sister site yet when I haven't begun one of my New Year's Goals, namely consistently updating story links over at Mostly Entertainment.  I did create the graphic for the link, have to admit it's kind of lame, but hey, go ahead and click on it if you want to link to some old headlines from back in October of last year (at least as I post this).

Updating the website aside, the second day of January also made me realize something, especially after the food meltdown I had on the 1st day of January, and that is I just need to order and ship the damn things to my friends rather than bring them back from the old country to distribute later, but then my question is if any of my friends actually deserve a case of them.  That's right, I'm talking, again, about cheese curls.  I blogged about them before, the best cheese curls in the world, from "Snyder of Berlin", and as my never-ending quest at losing weight was just ready to begin yesterday, with a new plan for just losing 1 pound a week and trying to get inspired by "The Biggest Loser: Couples," out of the corner of my eye, high on a shelf, the glorious bag caught my eye.  There was only one bag left of the three originally purchased because I did at least dish one off to Stu Gotz.  The other two were supposed to be for another buddy I know, a dude, who if you met you would never think he was a cheese curl kind of guy, but at a lunch one day he told Stu and me about his Achilles heel of snack food.  I promised him I would bring the best cheese curls back for him for the next time we met.  This was actually back in early November, and when I went home for Thanksgiving I brought back a couple of bags to give to him but those never made past the first week in December (yup, I ate those two bags), and then at Christmas I brought back three bags, quickly dispensed one to Stu, quickly ate one for me (even though that one was originally planned for my buddy), and did my best, for four days, to save that last bag for my buddy.  But as the bag of glorious cheesiness beckoned me I could no longer resist, and now, half a bag gone, I was tempted to throw the rest of those orange, curled, baked goodness into the garbage, but no, there they are, waiting for my next moment of weakness which will probably be about four hours from the time I am typing this blog.

Herein lies my next dilemma - From the Snyder of Berlin order form I can only order my beloved cheese curls by the case, which would contain 14 bags of cheese curls, and even I feel bad about dumping 14 bags of cheesines onto only one of my friends.  The thing is that if I ship the case to myself I know I could unload a couple to Stu, if I'm prompt about it I could re-ship two bags to my local buddy and two other bags could go to a staff member's girlfriend in New Jersey.  That leaves me with 8 bags of the World's best cheese curls which I could probably eat in a span of about 12 days, which I really, really, really, really would like to do, but for my weight loss goal is probably not a good idea.  So here's what I'm proposing and there is no guarantee you will get a bag.  If you would like me to send you a bag of what I consider the best cheese curls in the World, send me an e-mail to with your name, age and shipping address stating you would like a bag of cheese curls.  If I do, in fact, order a case, and I do not, in fact, eat them all, and if they do, in fact, have expiration dates later than when you would get the bag, I will ship you a bag of cheese curls.  I'll do my best to package them nicely but make no promise they won't arrive crushed and broken, Birds Eye Foods has absolutely nothing to do with my sending you a bag of cheese curls nor this blog, and don't blame me for one, free, taste, that might make you an addict.  In any case, if this cheese curl giveaway happens because I don't eat them all, I really just want to know what you think of them.

Here's to your weight loss in 2008!

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
