A wish to be on: the journalist that threw his shoes at George W. Bush and what really happened to him afterwards.

I have a long list of hits for 2008. In no particular order; Sue Johansen, James Appathurai, Ray Anderson, Robbie the Tiger, Cold Play, John Cusack, Farely Mowat, David Suzuki, David Frost, and about 10 others ... Where I thought the interview went well and the guest was interesting and had something to say that was intriguing to me.

Those that I really didn't enjoy, for various reasons; Julie Couillard (was too soft on her), Gordon Ramsey(replayed waaaay to much and he's rude); Jenny McCarthy (because she is preaching a cure! What she is doing is admirable, it's a way to MANAGE a disease but NOT cure it. That is false hope and I cannot respect that.)

Meli you forgot your wish list for Robert Downey Jr... :-)

We all wants Robert Downey Jr on the show!!! It will be nice !!!

My wishlist:
I would love for Alexz Johnson to be on the show. She has her debut cd coming out in the Spring and she's Canadian. Really amazing artist to look out for.

Any of the boys from Supernatural, but mostl: Jensen Ackles. Great actors and really funny/nice guys.

Stephenie Meyer, just for kicks. I want to see what George thinks of Twilight.

More animals!

Meli said...

My apologies Barb, you are correct, I did forget my wish for Robert Downey Jr. ... to be on the show that is. ;)

Once I e-mailed it to G, I forgot all about posting it here!

Once again ... George when you read this ... PLEASE have R.D. Jr on The Hour :)

My wish for '09 is,
for 'the hour' to stop using 'I'm your boyfriend'... and
will the real Strombo please stand up?!
IE: (not that it matters), but is he gay, straight, in a relationship or what?

I think the boyfriend comment at the beginning is cute. I hope they keep it.

He is in a reel relationship with the country and his real relationships (with his current GIRLfriend) is his private life and none of our business.

Steph A. said...

Oh, I forgot one guest for my wishlist, but it would be quite unlikely...Barack Obama. THAT would be interesting!
