10 Most Fascinating People of 2007

Did you catch Barbara Walters special last night? I had a JLM social, but was able to catch it when I got home with the boy, sans commercials, which is always nice. So what did you think? Did you think they made good selections? Who would be on your top 10?

I agreed with some of the selections, but man did she feed in to Victoria Beckhams ego or what? She is really something, and did you see her smile? Now I know why she doesn't smile, she does not exactly have the most attractive smile. Or maybe we are just so used to her looking so serious.

I love JT, so of course I loved the fact that he was chosen, and I thought it was kinda funny that he slammed Brad and George.

How about our former President Bill? I actually thought he came across as quite charismatic. But he still would not get my vote. . .

I love that they picked Katherine Heigl and Jennifer Hudson. Both girls seem so down to earth and have both had really big years. Definitely deserving and I thought they both came across really well.

The founders of My Space. I am not a big My Spacer, I have a space, but I never go there or use it. I guess I prefer to do my social networking one on one, but I do like it for viral marketing and think it is a great tool. I had no idea it surpassed google though. Good for them I say though, take an idea and turn it into millions.

Don Imus, well he has definitely had a big year. I don't like how the media swarmed on him though. I do believe what he said was wrong, but I also think that it was slightly taken out of context and I still believe that we live in America and have freedoms and one of those is freedom of speech. Yes, what he said was wrong, and he was called out for it and apologized, but I do not like the whole media circus that ensued because of it, I think it only made it worse.

J.K. Rowling, most fascinating? Okay, I can deal with that. I have never read the books or seen any of the movies, so I am not sure if I get the hype, but I am very happy for her, she also took an idea and turned it into millions. Go for your dreams!

You may notice I did not even mention Hugo Chavez. I don't like him. I don't believe him and I have no faith in him as a leader. He frightens me and his people are giving him too much power in a country that needs a strong leader not a powerful leader, if that makes sense.

If I had to choose the most fascinating person of 2007, I am not sure who I would choose. There are so many to choose from, I will have to put some thought into it. How about you? Who would you choose?

She lost me at the Beckhams, they do not fascinate me in the least!
