    Btw, before I forget, my official guess for Who Was Behind 1983 is....@Richard Channing
    I know you've hypnotized everyone with those red eyes, telling them to nominate anyone but you. But what you don't know is that I've been wearing anti-hypnotic-shield contact lenses this week.
    I know what makes you tick, so it's my job to always stay at least one step ahead of you.

    Interesting theory Willie....And quite a coincidence that you picked this week to wear your anti-hypnotic-shield contact lenses. I guess we'll find out pretty soon if you're right! :cooler:

    1983 was a very memorable year for me

    It was the pinch me i must be dreaming this

    but as a very excited teenager, i was flown to LA, got on the MGM/Lorimar set of Dallas and met 9 members of the cast on an all expenses paid trip as Uks biggest Dallas fan

    it was surreal, it was exciting and i never thought in my wildest dreams that something like that would happen to a devoted to original Dallas fan

    and i loved the music that year, KC, bananarama< irene cara - just reminds me of those happy times

    Im an 80s girl dontcha know!!
