Congrats, Brad! With a little anger management, you just may be able to win 1st prize next year! Good job!

They damn well better give you something or that place would have erupted!

Thank you, thank you very much.

The contest was fun, though it was strange that there were four people singing "Suspicious Minds." In past years, everyone had to sing a different song.

By the way, here was the gist of the argument:

I said that the singular of Elvis (as an impersonator) was "Elvum" and plural was "Elvii." Judge Number 3 said, "No, no, it's Elvis and Elvises." She was pretty snooty, so that's why she got the punch-bowl on her head.

What's anger management, by the way? I've never heard of such a thing.

Brad: MY bad...never you mind about anger management. Actually, it's a GREAT Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson movie. You might get a kick out of it...um...yeah! I'd grab a bowl of popcorn IMEAN bananas or bowl of pudding and check it out...

Yay! Way to go, pal. But, what's wrong with Suspicious Minds? I love that song. By Elvis AND by Dwight Yokum. Like 'em so much, I have both versions on my machine, here. Know most of the words by heart.

Hey, keep the punch flowin' buddy. Judges need a dose of reality, sometimes. And, would you mind if I had half of one of your sandwiches?

Nothing's wrong with "Suspicious Minds!" It's a good song. The first three times I heard it in the evening, I was delighted. By the fourth time, though, I was a bit miffed. There are SO MANY Elvis songs. Spread the wealth a little!

I have class until 5 every day this week, but the RnR hall of fame is closed at 5pm this time of year. Otherwise, I'd get you a really cool souvenier...yeah, souvenier.

Brad, I saw your comment to me on Friday's site about the PB&B sandwiches. HOOK ME UP! Can I have mine grilled, though? I heard that's pretty darn awesome, but never had the gumption to try one...oh, and can I get it with a side of your banana pudding?

Can you tell I'm stressing?

No worries, nothing serious. Apprehensive about my "smoke out" day which is descending upon me like a vampire bat on halloween...

Do they make banana lollipops? That would REALLY help a lot...

I love "Suspicious Minds". When I heard it as a young monkey, I thought it was about 2 lobsters and it made me cry. I also became a vegetarian.
