2008....come on down!

Happy New Year to one and all! Adios 2007. Hola 2008!

With a whole new 365 days of fun stretching out in front of us until Jonathan Ross gets to change his film show title again, I feel moved to make some predictions for the forthcoming year. Come with me as I gaze into the future and witness events yet to occur.

I tell you the truth, when I say that in 2008...
  • Leona Lewis will conquer the American charts.
  • Andy Murray will compete in at least one Grand Slam semi-final.
  • Britain's Olympic gold medals will come from sailing, cycling and equestrianism (that's fancy talk for horse stuff don't cha know).
  • The Liberal Democrats will elect another new leader.
  • Dave will become the top-rated non-Beeb, non-Sky, digital TV channel.
  • Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will be the biggest film of the year.
  • Both David Tennant and Jonny Wilkinson will become single, fall in love with your favourite blogger (that's me, right?) and fight some sort of contest (the format of which has yet to be decided) in order to win her affections.

Well I don't know about you, but I'm excited!

Have tagged you in a meme at my latest post - from 4/1/08. Hope that's OK!

@Lilwatchergirl: I had been hoping for a celebrity contest along the lines of The Krypton Factor - maybe with a couple of other celebrities thrown in? - but if you're going for the nude jelly cheese thing then I rather hope it isn't televised.

I have no desire to find out how accurate the Billie Piper "David Ten-inch" nickname is... but maybe if you could have Rose Tyler vs Martha Jones on the other channel for me?

PS Go channel Dave!

I have no idea what a meme is lilwatchergirl! Blast my newbie blogger status!

JackP - I am very interested in this Krypton Factor idea. Or maybe the Crystal Maze? We could chuck in Lewis Hamilton and Michael Buble into the mix if we need some more contestants! :-)

A meme - the name comes from Richard Dawkins, the evolutionary biologist turned atheist manifesto kid (great biologist, mind you - "the blind watchmaker" and "the selfish gene" are fantastic works) to mean a self-replicating idea.

In the blog context, memes are generally a series of questions or some other form of themed post which you are encouraged to take part in yourself and then pass along to other people, to replicate the idea.

Hows that for a definition?
