Elvis Inn Jerusalem



If I had Purgatorio's readership, I might offer up a caption contest for this here photo, but instead, I will simply share it. It ties in nicely to the latest Fire Ant Theatre reading, I think, and of course to my own ties to the King.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis is in the building. No, Elvis has left the building. No wait, Elvis is ON the building! Yes!

Thanks to my cousin, Mike, who just reported in from the Holy Land (and we're not talking Memphis here; we're talking Israel) where he is working on assignment, we have this. This being, of course, the King...in Jerusalem. Mike, being from Tennessee and being related to me, recognizes good kitsch when he sees it. And I probably owe him a big turkey dinner or something for allowing me to share this with ya'll. Thanks, Mike!

Made more ironic by that wall being the sign for the men's room!

(Or at least I think that would be hillarious.)

Definitely a good companion to Eric's reading ;).

Susie, is that a first? ;-)

Beth, you had me going back and looking for the restroom signage...that would be ironic (and funny)!

Rachel, I'm wondering if Eric's got a sequel in him? Although I'm not sure what kind of sequel this elicits. I rather liked the Shakepearean Elvis. ;-)

Gwynne, you should be thrilled...nay, ecstatic...from the realization that tomorrow evening's edition (that's Tuesday, the 9th, since comment dates don't appear on your blog) of "American Idol" will be All Elvis, All The Time.

As far as a sequel, what would you think of a Buddy Holly / Proust reading? ;-)

"American Idol" will be All Elvis, All The Time.

Ayyyeeee....are you fer real? Isn't that like the teevee equivalent of deep fried cheese balls? Adding insult to injury? Something like that anyway. Okay, count me NOT an American Idol fan, but this I might actually enjoy. I'll be sure and record it. Thanks for the heads up...and oh, my blog now dates comments. ;-)

As for Proust and Buddy Holly, I like it (In Search of Lost Time/Not Fade Away, or It Doesn't Matter Any More...something like that?). Be sure to wear the glasses when you're reading, so we get the full effect.

I'm also thinking there's probably a good Homeric version of Little Richard somewhere in your repertoire. ;-)

Er, no, my blog does not date comments. It only dates posts. My blog does as it pleases, mostly. Grrr...

Ah, ha! Now it dates comments. Take that, you stupid stinkin' blog!

But I'd like you to take note that it is now July. Wait, no, August already. Holy Moly! We're in a time warp!! Okay, so the blog wins this one. Take that, will ya? Please. Take it!

Well, you're using the European dating convention (which has nothing to do with wearing a beret and smoking a thin cigarette in a holder while leaning seductively against a 400 year old mahogany wood bar). Just switch the month and date variables and you'll be Americanized.

Oh. [blushing] Never mind.

Thank you. 8-}
