This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Bally Total Fitness. Here’s Teri Hatcher.
You always see these commercials during the first couple of weeks of the new year, which is when places like Bally and LA Fitness etc. sign lots of people up to fitness contracts, which then get used for maybe one month and then are forgotten…
Happy New Year, to those I haven’t already said that to. 2021 is in the rear-view mirrors, even that one that says "Objects seen in this mirror are larger than they appear."
In addition to all the usual folderol, I’m participating in two additional blog hops this month: Bloganuary, hosted by the gang over at Auttomatic (i.e. WordPress), and Just Jot It January, sponsored by our very own Linda Hill. The links above will take you to the first posts of each, after which they each get their own section fo the month. It’s going to be busy here this month…
Here’s the summary from last week.
- Sunday: Little Walter, “Boom Boom (Out Goes The Lights)”
- Monday: Elvis Presley, “Jailhouse Rock”
- Tuesday: Earl “Fatha” Hines & His Orchestra, “Second Balcony Jump”
- Wednesday: Matt “Guitar” Murphy, “Murphy’s Boogie”
- Thursday: ELO, “Mister Blue Sky”
- Friday: The Guess Who, “Don’t You Want Me”
- Saturday: Xavier Cugat, “Brazil”
After playing a month of Christmas songs, we had this opportunity to play New Year’s songs. I recycled last year’s list, adding a couple of new songs and dropping the ones that had disappeared from YouTube, for whatever reason.
New Year’s questions this week: what we’ll be doing when midnight strikes, New Year’s Eve traditions, whether we think this year will be any better than last, most important thing you learned in 2021, and a word that describes how we feel going into the new year. My word, BOHICA, is actually an acronym for "bend over, here it comes again."
Counted down the top 10 from WCFL’s last survey of 1974.
My one-liner was a bit of advice about choosing hobbies.
Did two of these, one from this week and one from the week before. The one for this week showed a cat pushing a kitten around in a shopping cart, the other was a picture of an Alaskan Husky raising its paw, making it look like he was about to box.
Wrote about my goals from ten years ago and discovered I really didn’t have any, and I bemoaned the fact because, after all, this is my blog.
Counted down the Top Ten hits on WLS’s "Big 89 of ’73."
The word was "resovve," so I talked about the carpet cleaner named Resolve and how I wished they would ask me what my New Year’s resolutions were…
- Alana Mautone
- Annalisa Crawford
- Arlee Bird
- Cathy Kennedy
- Dan Antion
- Melanie B Cee
- Paula Light
- Stine Writing
- Anyone I missed
- Everyone who left a "like"
And that wraps up the first edition of The Week That Was for 2022.

Wasn’t she Lois Lane?
Yes, she was, in Lois & Clark.
That Victoria Principle commercial is new to me. Her voice is unmistakable. I think we are all thrilled that 2021 is in the rear view mirror. Hopefully 2022 will bring us more safe opportunities to live our lives. (I can dream)
Just FYI: It’s Teri Hatcher, not Victoria Principal. Victoria did the commercials in the late ’70’s, when Dallas was a big thing, and Teri did them in the ’80’s, when Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman was. They do look and sound alike….
