    LOL! I love Weird Al.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    I watched a bit of his new Tacky (Happy) this morning when I returned home from work. I like this one much more.

    I like "it's quite apparent...your grammar's errant..." and I over-use commas. Oh, dear. There is another line I like; not sharing it here.

    I like Tacky much better than the original Happy. The words are much better, and the costuming is an added bonus.

    That was GREAT! It actually made me nostalgic for diagramming sentences. Those were the good old days!

    Oh Jane, thanks! I loved it! Even though I fail at grammar sometimes, it is a pet peeve of mine, when people get it wrong. And I didn't even know that Weird Al was still around!

    (you're right - I'll be humming the tune all night long.)
