I’m not a birthday guy. When I was maybe 9 years old, birthdays were great! They
were like the warmup show for Christmas—where toys and cash rained from the heavens.
Now that I am a safe distance into my 30’s, birthdays merely mean that I somehow
survived another trip around our modest sized star. Those birthdays also seem to
come a lot faster now.
Time is indeed relative and, as a kid, it moved along at a snail’s pace. I wanted
to grow up so badly. My mom always used to say, “Enjoy being a kid. Adulthood sucks,
honey.” Well, maybe not in so many words, but that was the gist. And, wow, was she
right. Why are moms always so right? Responsibilities, careers, bills, mortgages,
deadlines, insurance, 401K’s, politics, taxes, doctors, gray hairs, nosehair plucking.
When I was a kid, I always wondered if having armpit hair would tickle. Well, it
doesn’t, but nosehairs do. The worst is when you can feel them wafting in the wind
with each breath. God, I want to make a sprint for the bathroom and pluck this thing.
I will admit, the first list I presented was thrown together in haste. I didn't do much research and some very deserving women suffered. I wanted to join in the fun and make a list too! The new and improved Top 20 is my final verdict. There was so tough decisions all around, some tears were shed in both joy and sorrow. I could just cut it down to only ten. In fact, I had a hard enough time with only 20! So without further ado, here is the ultimate Top 20 Hottest Celebrity Chicks for 2008!
