    About that, I honestly can't remember the year I've given to Jason. Maybe it was 1980, maybe it was something else.
    Therefore I'm also going to guess it was me, @Willie Oleson. If it turns out to be me, it means I'm also winning the guessing game, right?:)

    I often roll my eyes when voters forget to mention who they believe chose the year.








    Anyway, I am going with @Willie Oleson

    lol I forgot that too!
    Chalk it up to being tired after not sleeping at all between tuesday and wednesday as I was watching the election on TV.
    Such tiredness stays with you for a while... :(

    Anyway my guess is that @Ms. Paige chose 1980.

    I think I need to become an 80's music girl, I've finally found a thing I'm somewhat good at. Congrats, Emelee, it only took you 32 years.
