PALEOFITNESS IS STILL OUT, NO MATTER HOW HARD THEY TRY:  Last year, the Washington Post's In/Out for [Insert Year Here] Gurus correctly predicted the rise of Jessica Chastain, Kate Middleton's uterus, the tv series Happy Endings and Girls, Pinterest, Taylor Swift's bangs, and "hunting the God particle," even if their predicted Tang renaissance did not bear fruit.

What's in store for 2013?  More Longoria, less Clooney. Taxidermy. The 'Fro. Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon & Cecily Strong. A movement to draft Taft into the Nationals' Presidents race. And Donuts: why would they ever be out?

added: Also in for 2013, apparently? Oompa-Loompa attacks.

    I think I killed my original comment, so shorter version: growlers are so 2012, artisan craft distillers are what's in for 2013.

    one of my favorite sentences of the year: "Ain’t nobody gonna buy that clear liquor but a bunch of drunks. . Daddy always told us, ‘Make good liquor and put it in barrels, hide it
    over in the woods, where nobody can find it, and that ain’t no
    different than money in the bank.’ ”

    I'm glad they aren't going to waste time trying to draft William Tecumseh Sherman into the race.

  4. I am hoping (at least to some extent) that one of these predictions comes true and I am in a position to take advantage of it. (Sorry to be cryptic, but there are a number of balls in the air right now, and I don't want to drop any.)

    Haircuts from Wham!

  6. I can unambiguously state that no hair-related things are what I mean there.
