Quotes from a 105-year-old woman I interviewed today

Q: How are you?

A: "I'm still alive!"

Q: How can a person live to 105?

A: "You just go on living and tell yourself, 'I'll never say I can't do it.'"

Q: Will the 106th birthday party be even bigger?

A: "I live by the day. I don't plan anything ahead, because I'm here but maybe the Lord will take me away all of a sudden. So I don't plan for any other birthday. But I am happy that I can do what I do now. If I can continue for a while, I'm thankful."

Here's the whole story, but if you ask me, you just read everything you need to know.

Why Amy Adams is Hollywood's next It girl

You want recent success? She's in the No. 1 movie at the box office.

You want funny? She's not only Ricky Bobby's clumsy inspiration in "Talledega Nights" but also the title character of "Hot Girl" in a Season 1 episode of "The Office."

You want quality? She's an Academy Award nominee. Really!

You want a hot redhead? Since Lindsay Lohan's gone cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, what's stopping Adams and Isla Fisher from taking over?
