Millionaire update (no news is no news)

No phone call, so I’m not going to play Millionaire this time.  Maybe it’s time to send a video for the daytime show… 🙂

As promised, the answers to my 5-question Millionaire Fastest Finger quiz:

4. bad
3-4-2-1: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

Question 2

1. Queen of Hearts
2. Mad Hatter
