Elvis still makes the gals tremble...

I was listening to Rick & Bubba this morning at work and they were talking about how Graceland is having this deal where they wanted people to let them know if they ever had a personal experience with Elvis. (They didn't say this but I'm pretty sure they mean before he died.) Anyway,this woman named Joan called in. Apparently she's called in before and sang to Rick & Bubba because they called her Singin' Joan.

Anyway, she started telling this story about how she dated Elvis before he became famous and how he loved her so much that he asked her to marry him. Then he went on the Ed Sullivan show, got famous and married Priscilla. Joan claims that Elvis has only had 3 girlfriends - her, Priscilla and Ann Margaret and that anybody that says they have dated Elvis and their name isn't Joan, Priscilla or Ann Margaret is a liar. Ya'll, it was so funny. I honestly thought I might pee in my pants for a minute. Bless her, she said she had to get off the phone because she was trembling.

I'm not sure if I've told ya'll this before, but I am fascinated with people. When I meet someone, I want to learn all about them. I think this has a lot to do with my fascination with reality
television. I just love to see how other people live and what makes them tick. As hard as it is to
admit, I'm a reality TV junkie. And bless Jay's heart, I'm bringing him down with me. He'll be
innocently doing some work at the computer and before he knows it, he's sucked in.

I guess you can tell from the content of my post today, not a lot was going on. I will say that it's
day 4 of no caffeine or soda and up until about 1:30p today, I haven't had anything to drink except water since Friday night. Today was the first day that I didn't have a headache so I thought I'd treat myself to a little bottle of Cran-Grape. I drank it right up and then saw that it was 240 calories and 6 WW points! I thought I was going to croak. SOOO, do any of you know of some low calorie drinks that don't have aspartame?

Oh, and by the way, you need to head over to Fabulously Frugalicious and enter her giveaway for some adorable keylettes.

Oh, I wish I could have heard Singing Joan! She is hilarious when she sings her made up songs. I wonder why she hasn't written a bio about her days with Elvis???

Go girl on the Caffiene! You are doing great and I'll have you a prize soon.

I am so proud of you with the caffeine and as for singing Joan, bless her heart, does she really think anyone is going to believe that Elvis only had 3 girlfriends, but then who knows maybe Joan was his one great love. Go Joan

Woohoo! You'll never regret giving up soft drinks! Can't help you on the drinks, though. I sweeten green tea with honey, if you like that. Other than that, it's milk and water for us with the occasional fruit juice.
