Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 10:35 AM by skypilot
John Roberts, Sam Alito, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter, Antonin Scalia, John Paul Stevens and, and, and...

Dammit, I ALWAYS forget one.

I don't have a clue about the Brady Bunch.

On edit: Now that others have responded I realize that Breyer was the one I was forgetting. I always forget him.

7. Well,
I came up with only six - and that doesn't include the new CJ - but in my defense, my head is stuffed with ten pounds of soggy rags and I am going to leave work early and try to get some sleep.

But I couldn't come up with ANY of the Brady Bunch (not their real names, a few of the character names).

10. Greg, Peter, Bobby, Marcia, Jan, Cindy, Alice, Mr. Brady and Mrs. Brady.
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 10:39 AM by GumboYaYa
Mr. Brady's name was Mike and Mrs. Brady's name was Carol.

I'm not sure if that makes me feel smart or dumb.

<ON EDIT> Don't forget cousin Oliver.

13. Yep- to scotus, not the bb. I even have a favorite
Breyer. Ever since one of his regular events with school children was televised I've had a crush. He's droll, adorable and has a sweet spirit he just can't hide.
