End of the Gig

I'm sad to report that Deadbeat Crawdads broke up last night. Brutus griped that that as the bassist, he wasn't getting very much attention from the audience. The audience was complaining that they weren't getting very much attention from me other than the obligatory fruit-pelting at the end of each show. The owner of the Geogeo Lounge wanted us to open for Seth LaPod, after we'd clearly had an understanding that Deadbeat Crawdads would open for Sunny Sings Sinatra.

"Enough already," I said to the owner. Everyone in the room was quiet, waiting for me to throw a tantrum. I am glad to say I disappointed them. (I suppose Phil will be relieved that he doesn't have to sing in Latin.)

I'm going to take a few days off to think about what I want to do next. In the meantime, does anyone know where I can get a good mango daiquiri? I'm also craving some honey-glazed bananas a la mode.

Well, my dear Brad, your groupies could probably also use a few days off to ponder things. It is hard to keep up with you. You set a high standard for vigor. What, may I ask, is that absolutely sumptuous-looking dish you have displayed? Pray do not say it is a secret!

The picture displayed is honey-glazed bananas a la mode. Here is where I found the photo:

I think I have figured out how to TRY to make these honey-glazed bananas. I wonder if my recipe will be like yours.Perhaps when I come to visit we can compare with a taste-test.

Brad, I'm so disappointed about Deadbeat Crawdads. Why or why do things keep going wrong? I know your taking a couple of days off but I hope your planning on attending the Blog Flash Mob today. Details at my blog.
Thx and have a killer weekend.

How long are you going to think (silently and without blogging)?????
And I have to confess, my attempt at honey-glazed bananas was a dismal failure, so I ended up making it into a honey-glazed banana smoothie.
