    Wow, I'm impressed! What a lot of smart people! I was telling a couple of friends about something I was reading that was very sad, and they said, "we're going to have to give you some romances to read." That makes me feel like I did when I was in high school and my mom wanted to send me to a "charm" class. No way! Well, I might want to read a romance, but I don't think that the ones they read would do it for me. Sometimes I get totally off of reading and sometimes I try to read and nothing holds my interest. Thank goodness for the internet! Anyway.....

    I guess my favorite performers would be:

    1. Ellen (of course)
    2. Aretha Franklin
    3. Kathy Griffith
    4. Stevie Ray Vaughn (gone but not forgotten)
    5. Janis Joplin (R.I.P.)
    6. Bill Cosby
    7. The Beatles
    8. Anne Bancroft (gbnf)
    9. Justin Timberlake
    10. ?

    As for songs, that is really hard, because I don't really have favorites--usually what I am listening to at the time!

    Artists

    1. Monet
    2. Van Gogh
    3. Michaelangelo
    4. Leonardo di Vinci
    5. Caravaggio
