And now Billie Joe McAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

It being the third of June today, someone on an internet forum I frequent posted a link to "Ode to Billie Joe", so now the song's going to be playing in my head all day. And it does demonstrate what I always say about a positive frame of mind being essential for memory competitions - I had a very speedy historic dates practice this morning, then heard that rather depressing song, and then was a good thirty seconds slower than usual when I went back to some binary digits training. It's a good idea to listen to something fast-paced and bouncy before you go into a competition.

Really great song, though!

Billie Joe never did have a lick of sense. Pass the biscuits, please.
