    Whaaat?!? Sorry everyone, I haven’t been around for a few days — you know Life sometimes has unexpected surprises in store for us… This is so awesome, I can’t believe I won — there were so many great entries!! Thanks SO MUCH for all the congrats, and thanks to the mods for setting up another fun contest, thanks to AP, Ross, & Deen for being such good sports and letting us put all sorts of words in their mouths, and thanks also to Erik Pineda for judging the contest. Apparently, Erik, you and I have the same sense of humor…If you look like your brother and you’re single, we should talk. 😉

    [As Santa moves Becky’s name from the “Naughty-But-Tries-Hard” List to the “Completely Hopeless” column…]

    BTW, I actually have had jalapeño ice cream with bacon bits (not as bad as it sounds, but I wouldn’t have it again), and I’m led to believe there is a very good chance there’s going to be sriracha beer at the New Year’s party I’ve been invited to… I’ve never tried chocolate-covered crickets, but I’d be willing to give it a go for anybody who can get Arnel Pineda to grow his hair back!

    Heeheehee, have a wonderful holiday season, y’all!!!!

    Deen: No, you can’t just go home – YOU are the voice of Journey, and you’re great!

  • Becky

    Deen [looking at Arnel]: Where have you been?? You’re late for rehearsal — everybody is furious! What’s the deal?!?
    Ross: Take it easy. His room is on the floor with the Victoria’s Secret models and they were out in the hall practicing all night in their…um…feathers and…whatnot.
    Arnel [feebly]: I couldn’t even get in to my room…
    Ross: So he just sat down and watched…
    Arnel [glazed look on his face]: …there were SO MANY of them…

  • Connie Crawford

    DEEN : “Perry was good……..ok, Perry was great. But you know what Arnel? Now YOU da’ MAN! So go OUT there & rock their FREAKIN’ socks off!” (even though I know Deen would use another word..lol)

  • Linda

    Deen: you two better not go and tell anyone you saw me here. Ross come on Arnel we’re telling right now.

  • Becky

    Deen: Now listen, mister. How many times have we told you to stay away from the 5-alarm chili and sriracha beer? And to top it off you have jalapeño ice cream with bacon bits and chocolate-covered crickets??
    Ross [sighing]: Come on, Arnel, I’ll take you to the bathroom.
    Arnel [moaning]: Ughhh, I’m gonna be sick, you guys.
    Ross [mumbling]: But I’m not holdin’ your hair back while you puke!

  • Becky

    Deen: Didn’t I warn you this would happen?!?
    Ross: Don’t be so hard on him, Deeno, he feels bad enough already. It was an easy mistake…
    Deen: And now it’s spread all over the internet!!!
    Arnel [shaking his head and mumbling]: It was just one slip of the finger… How could I do that?!?…I didn’t realize…
    Deen: I told you — you take selfies in the bathroom, you’re just asking for trouble…

  • 11:11 Everywhere

    Deen: Wait a minute… YOU got to play with him earlier today before rehearsal… Sooo not fair… IT’S MY TURN!!!

    Ross: Too bad Deeno… your loss… I found him first! Come on Arnel!

    Arnel thinking: JUST GREAT… now I get to sit them both down and spend the next couple of hours talking about the importance of sharing, human kindness and how you can’t always have it all!

  • Donna

    Ross: C’mon, it’s this way…
    Deen: Next time, remember to go before you leave the hotel!

  • Indaya09

    Deen: Ross,did you take my hair spray? Don’t you dare saying you didn’t,
    I can smell it…
    Ross: No, I didn’t. You can ask Arnel here… was just trying to give Arnel a
    new haircut!
    Arnel: Mum (Oh, boy! We’re in big trouble…)

  • Beckles Becky Smith

    Deen– Ross I’m on to you what was that all about um?

    Deen: Ross, how many times do I have to tell you, try it, you’ll like it! If it works for Arnel, it’ll work for you.

    Arnel: Yeah, see, come on Ross, I won’t peek, I promise. No nottiness here!

  • Deen: Roooss, what did I tell you about trying to sneak this young man into the clubs?
    Ross: Stop yelling at me, I’m very sensitive besides, he told me he was over 21 I swear, tell ’em Arnel!
    Arnel: {Just standing there with an apple in one hand and that innocent smile on his face} raises eye-brows as in ‘I didn’t do anything’!

  • Jasmin

    Deen: 「Ross, where are you going with Arnel! He’s my boy!」
    Ross: 「He’s MY boy!」

    Deen: “Arnel, holding hands and skipping is NOT in your contract!”
    Ross: “At least we weren’t running with scissors!….Come on, Arnel..let’s go play in the sandbox”.
