The Grammy (ELC) Awards

Since The (Actual/Real) Grammy Awards are about to be on this evening (7:00 p.m.? CST? Not completely sure.), and since I probably won’t be able to keep my eyes open past 8:00 p.m. CST, and since I haven’t done a post recently, I’ve decided I will do my First Annual “Grammy” (ELC) Awards. Why the heck not?

They will be so random, y’all will have no clue as to why I’ve chosen my categories. Just go with me, okay? (Also, some categories will have a “Runner Up”—or two. Or five. Because…)

Finally, there will be fourteen (14) categories. (At this time, as I type, I can actually only think of about five…so I don’t know why I even asked TLC how many I should do. She came up with 14. Because of Valentine’s Day. Sure. Why the heck not?)

Here we go:

BEST CANDY: Peanut M&Ms. Runner Up: Heath Bar. Runner Runner Up: Snickers.

BEST COOKIE: Chick-Fil-A Chocolate Chip. There are no Runners Up. These are BIG. Soft. Chewy. WARM. YUMMALICIOUS. (I confess: I had to look up how to spell Chick-Fil-A. I usually spell it this way: Chick Filet. It drives TLC completely bonkers. I’m not a totally ignorant person. But I am old-ish. Clearly, over the years, I’ve not thought it was critical that I remember how to spell this particular fast-food chain. Only where to find them!)

BEST SOFT DRINK/SODA: Diet Mountain Dew. DUH. Runner Up: Coke Zero.

BEST CEREAL: Post Shredded Wheat and Bran. Yes. This is simply a personal preference. I like to put two (2) Splenda packets on about a cup and a half of cereal. Top it with about a cup of 1% milk. Then have it with a Diet Mountain Dew. Fabulous.

BEST MINI SERIES: Downton Abbey. Runner Up: The Thorn Birds. Runner Runner Up: Shogun. (Shogun should have a little dash-thingy over the “o”—but I have no clue how to do that.)

BEST TELEVISION SERIES: (Still and ALWAYS.) Grey’s Anatomy. Runner Up: Scandal. Runner Runner Up: SMASH. Runner Runner Runner Up: Glee.

BEST COUNTRY WESTERN SINGER (Female): Carrie Underwood.

BEST COUNTRY WESTERN SINGER (Male): Garth Brooks.

(I would be here all night if I tried to do Runners Up for these two categories. I ADORE Country Western Music. Have for forty years. My favourites are too many to list. But these two peeps top them all—for moi.)

BEST FAST FOOD JOINT: Sonic Drive-Ins.

BEST CHAIN RESTAURANT (could be a Texas thing—not sure): Saltgrass Steakhouse.

BEST COMEDY (improvisational and otherwise) SHOW in Texas (possibly the World): Four Day Weekend; Downtown Ft. Worth.

BEST MALL IN TEXAS: The Galleria. In Dallas. Runner Up: Northpark. Dallas.

BEST DOG ON EARTH: Teddy Buddy Boo Bear. Runner Up: Y’all’s Dog(s).

BEST MORNING TV NEWS SHOW: Daybreak; WFAA (ABC), Channel 8, Dallas. TLC, Little Leighton and I all TREASURE Izzy, Ron, Alexa and Greg. They completely CRACK US UP. Every morning. Five mornings a week. They ROCK.

There you go. The First (and probably Last) Annual GRAMMY ELC Awards…for what they are worth.

Gotta scoot…gotta go get my seat on the couch and try to stay awake for as long as possible…

smooches!
