Today, 8/16, is Elvis's Death Day. Today in 1977, Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll was found unconscious on his throne. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead two hours later of cardiac arrhythmia. More info available here.
Tonight was a great night for my improvised team. Kelly, Karen, and I won 4/4 rounds. Karen had a 26, Kelly had a 27, and I had a 27 (out of 30 points each). A couple of our opponent's players went to Florida to help out, so they had a sub come in (he is normally a very good player; he did win his last game against me by running out 7 balls in a row). I am most proud of Kelly, whose record going into tonight was 2 wins out of 18 games. She managed to win her first two racks tonight, and she should have won the last game to get a 3 & 0, but she realized that she had a chance and succumbed to nerves.
Unpaid Testimonial of the Week
If anyone out there has a skin condition (dry, oily, scaly, etc.) that has bothered them for years, and you've given up hope of ever clearing it up, try this product. Cetaphil Cleansing Bars are the only thing that has helped my dry, flaky skin. I was staying over at someone's house, and she has severe chemical and food allergies, so this is what she had for washing since she's allergic to all soaps. I couldn't believe the difference after just one use. I had stopped using it for a while and just tried it again today, and voila! Soft, smooth skin again. It's like magic.
Yet Another Reason for the World to Hate France
Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. I heard this story on the radio earlier today. Limbless Woman Sues Air France Over "Torso" Snub I just can't believe how insensitive and stupid people can be. I'd sue Air France and the dumbass gate agent personally.
