What is a bama lama?

I found an Elvis Costello cd I hadn't heard before. I'm listening to it as I write this so I am only sorta paying attention to the words on my screen.

I still remember seeing EC at the Hollywood Bowl. It was our last California concert before moving to Redneckistan.

This is the time of year in Mexico Beach that is my favorite. The weather is a little cooler, the humidity has crawled back up Satan's ass, and the tourists have gone back to their flyover states.

Text conversation yesterday -

Sis: happy 50th
Me: wrong day
Sis: I know. I worked all day yesterday and didn't get a chance to text you.
Me: still wrong
Sis: Tuesday. I'm early. You're welcome.
Me: ...
Sis: you're old.

No, I am not 50. Baby sisters can get away with shit you can't.

My vehicle registration has gone up 10 cents this year. That is such bullshit.

No Elvis, you should never cover a Billie Holiday classic. I get that you want to pay homage to her, but no. You're not worthy. I say that with all the love in the world.

I feel about people covering Billie Holiday the way I feel about them covering Adele. Just don't do it. You haven't got the chops or the style.

Titty sprinkles!
