To discuss some quick thoughts on polls, charity and word verification

Some quick thoughts:
  • The Top 90s Young TV Couples poll closed on Sunday. In an election more heated than Obama vs. McCain, Zack/Kelly of Saved by the Bell narrowly lost out to the winner, Cory/Topanga of Boy Meets World. Kevin/Winnie pulled out a third-place finish. Kermit and Miss Piggy garnered just seven votes, their worst showing since the made-for-TV Muppet Christmas special. I'm not surprised Cory/Topanga won. They always seemed right for each other, even in real life. It's nice to know Ben Savage and Fred Savage had a strong showing.
  • Will/Lisa, "Fresh Prince"
    2 (1%)
    Zack/Kelly, "Saved by the Bell"
    27 (25%)
    Cory/Topanga, "Boy Meets World"
    29 (27%)
    D.J./Steve, "Full House"
    6 (5%)
    Dawson/Joey, "Dawson's Creek"
    9 (8%)
    Kermit/Miss Piggy, "Muppet Babies"
    7 (6%)
    Kevin/Winnie, "The Wonder Years"
    19 (18%)
    Stefan/Laura, "Family Matters"
    1 (0%)
    Kirk Fogg/Olmec "Legends of the Hidden Temple"
    1 (0%)
    3 (2%)
  • Another poll is up, this one for just two weeks. The question: When do you put up holiday decorations? I had mine up before Thanksgiving this year, a record. At this rate, I'll be celebrating Valentine's Day on New Year's.
  • If you haven't already, check out JenBun's post, which links to an effort to raise money for the Lupus Foundation of America; her blog friend, Rachel, has a sister-in-law that suffers from the disease. You can donate through her site. At least one of us out there is doing something good. I spent much of last night swearing at a treadmill and eating granola bars. (Capricorn and I decided to start working out.)
  • If you leave a comment, here's your assignment: Look at the spam verification word. Whatever it is, no matter what, you have to write a definition for it. So if it's "aslongo,' for example, you could say it's Swedish long underwear. Get it? I would like to be impressed, and I know you won't let me down.
