Best TV I'm Not Watching: Bones, How I Met Your Mother, Entourage, Arrested Development (because I'm a season behind...)
Best J-Blogosphere Idea That Never Took Off: Jewschool's Ethical Speech Initiative. Why no liftoff? I blame the little rebbe icon. Still, a good idea to think before you post. Plus, this post also has 2005's Best Post-Blogbattle Reconciliation Photo, too.

Most Ambitious Media Plan for 2006: Me (TV, web, radio, publishing, area appearances, cross-country and international locations, auntdom, world domination...it's all in the works, so stay tuned to be a part of it...)
People Whom I've Never Met But For Whose Comments and Readership I Am Nonetheless Grateful: You.
Wishing you all, bloggers and commenters, old and young, Jewish and non-Jewish, male or female, rabbinical students and rabbis, neighbors and friends and faraway not-yet-friends, a happy and healthy 2006. May all of our dreams come true.
