I made a pledge before I went to bed last night that I would post something every day in December. This morning, I making the pledge public.

I, David Steinle, pledge to post something on Foots Prints every day during December. If I don’t, please call me out and tell me I’m lazy and don’t keep my promises.

Okay then.

I’m in my Hallmark Channel addiction phase. I’m watching all the Christmas movies, many of which I’ve seen multiple times already this year after watching them in 2015. Mostly, I’m addicted to Alicia Witt, the redhead who not only has tremendous acting chops, but has a voice like an angel. If you don’t believe me, download “I’m Not Ready For Christmas”, the title of a Hallmark movie she stars in with Bridgid Brannah (“Army Wives”) and Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”).

Alicia appears in three other Christmas movies on Hallmark: “A Very Merry Mix-Up”, “Christmas at Cartwright’s”, and the newest one, “Christmas List”, which debuted last Friday. Many remember Witt from “Cybill” and a brief run on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, where she was paired with Chris Noth’s Mike Logan. I wish SVU would have brought Witt back to play Nola Falacci, but Kelli Giddish has been great as Amanda Rollins. Too bad Rollins can’t do anything right in the eyes of bitchy Olivia Benson. If NBC could get Witt to reprise Falacci, I would love to see her paired with Sonny Carisi (Peter Scanavino). Two Italian detectives. Look out.

Several very talented actresses appear in these movies. My favorites, in addition to Witt, have been Candace Cameron Bure (“Full House”), Danica McKellar (“The Wonder Years”) and Lacey Chabert (“Party of Five”). Mariah Carey directed and starred in one with Chabert. Very charming. Candace is also a favorite of mine because she is a devout Christian and a conservative unafraid to stand up for beliefs.

Right now, Hallmark is airing a movie starring Bonnie Somerville, whom I remember very well from first season of The O.C., where she had a five-episode arc as flirtatious lawyer Rachel Hoffman. Somerville’s character put the moves on Sandy Cohen, which naturally angered Kirsten and her father, tyrannical Caleb Nichol. In Somerville’s final episode, Kirsten tries to set her up with Jimmy Cooper on Thanksgiving, but it fizzles when Kirsten, Sandy, Caleb and the then-scummy Julie Cooper argue all day, and Seth finds himself torn between Anna and Summer. Sandy didn’t stray this time, but the temptation returned in season two.

I’ve seen the commercial with Lori Grenier from “Shark Tank” promoting the Simply Fit Board, one of the products she invested in on Shark Tank, at least 275 times. At least it’s not Mark Cuban. I still want Kevin O’Leary (Mr. Wonderful) to kick his ass.

I have an appointment with Crista this morning in Hays. I’m going to have to get ready after the movie with the lovely Ms. Somerville concludes.
