Just can't get enough of finnfam? Fear not, sweet friends, the New Year's holiday will be simply teeming with finnfam, available on your television from the comfort of your own living room. That's right, friends, all of your finnfam needs can be met without even moving your big fat butt from the couch! It all starts on New Year's Eve, when you can pop a bottle of champagne and tune in to PBS for a performance of "A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor," live from Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. Wait, what's that you see? Why, it's me and my beloved, in the tenth row, enjoying the show! Wave to us -- you never know, we just might wave back!
And nothing cures a New Year's Eve hangover quite like settling in with the Rose Parade on New Year's Day. We just can't get enough of flowers, floats, and inane banter from hosts whose primary claim to fame is a recurring role on "The Young and the Restless." Watch closely, just behind Grand Marshal George Lucas, and you'll catch the Lakeville North High School Band, where Kelsey (Niece #5) and Thomas (Nephew #5) will be found trumpeting and saxophoning their way to Hollywood stardom.
Now what could be a better way to start 2007 than that?
[Update: The lineup for the Keillor show has been announced. Among others, we get Emmylou Harris. EMMYLOU HARRIS! Sorry, now I'm just bragging...]
