To Karen....From Bonnie

Guess what?? Bonnie Hunt gave me a fabulous Christmas Present!! It was such a fun surprise, and something I will have for years and think of her.It's an amazing vacuum that sells for $750 dollars! Wow what a gift(but after all we are pretty good friends now) Sure,she gave one to others in the audience too but it would have been weird if she didn't.Her mom probably taught her what mine did "unless you have enough for everyone don't give one to anyone" So we all got one! We went to her taping last week because I just had to see her set all decked out for Christmas.And it looked so pretty and festive.She came into the audience and we chatted just a bit. Then I saw Holly her BFF and waved and said Happy"Holly" Days.She was super sweet and smiled and waved back to us. I know I'm a true dork and even Chloe asked how long I had worked on that cheesy line. I brought her audience manager who get us our fabulous seats some "Atwood" wine and he was thrilled. I wrote since he gives us such a fun taste of Hollywood, I wanted him to have a taste of the best of Temecula.Her mom Alice was on the show and she sang "Silent Night" and I cried...She is so darn sweet and reminds me so much of my mom. I know some of you might think it's a bit odd how often we go, but I just love her and her staff so much! And of course being a Krikac everyone now has a nick name. Her big security guy is named "shoulders" (frankly they are huge) One intern is "Indiana" because that's where shes from. The other one is "cubby" because he always wears his Cubs outfit. So now they kinda know me too. Its like we're they're one big family...and I am the weird aunt. It is always a fun day...and I promise I wont go back until January.

January 5th she returns from hiatus!

Sophia, You are the funnest (not funniest) person I know! I've really never known anyone who actually stalked a movie star before...how exciting! I love the vaccum cleaner, did everyone really get one? I hate being away from my computer too...I miss keeping up with what my friends are doing. I should have asked for a laptop, I didn't even think of that. Maybe for my birthday. I loved the baton picture...darling! I was a twirler myself, no pictures however. Then I became a flag twirler in high school and my daughters have loved teasing me about that. I also loved the post about Steve, what a sweet, sensitive gesture. You hit the jackpot with him. I'm so happy you're enjoying all the holiday festivities...me, I can't wait for it to be over!! Merry Christmas!

OK, so this is my biggest complaint about writing things instead of saying them in person. That "funniest" comment was meant as a compliment. I didn't want you to think I thought you were "funny" in your love for Bonnie, I just wanted to say that I thought you were such a "fun" person, you know, fun to be with, you do fun things, etc. If I had said you were the "funniest" person I knew, you might think I thought you were "weird" and I don't, I think you are FUN!

What a fun post, and what a blast of a day that was! Hanging with Bon is a great Christmas gift, but the beautiful present on top of that was a terrific bonus! :) Loved this fun post - Don and Bon would be proud. Lots of love.
