I'm MORE than jealous!!

An "obscure" ;-) Mad Magazine writer I have had the privilege to talk to a couple of times online posted a link to his SmugMug account on Twitter today. Noticed he got to nuzzle close to Bernadette Peters in one photo at an animal charity benefit... I've had a "thing" for her since really noticing her in the '70's in "Mel Brook's Silent Movie"... she still looks, as Billy Crystal as "Fernando" would say..."Mahvelous"!

/just kidding, Dick DeBartolo is a genius at comedy writing
//has a full length episode of "The Carol Burnett Show" featuring of the episodes from the old "Columbia House" subscriptions

Writer's Block: Where Names Come From

Is there a story behind your real name or avatar? How did you end up being called that?

The username I use "almost" globally comes from lack of imagination from the time I first touched a computer and went online. "Albert71292" is just a blending of my first name, and my zip code.

My real name... named after my dad, first, last, and middle, making me a "junior", not sure where HIS parents got it from!

/grandfather was "Walter Vivian Sims".... Vivian?!? Good thing he wasn't around to see "The Young Ones"!
