First, a carry-over for the IAST:

Then, it was on the search for....BRAINS!
It's the word for this week at EIM. Oh, the choices were plentiful!

Thusly, I can skip over the Zombies and move onto the choices I did go with:
Partnership for a Drug-Free America (1987 version). You know the one, where they fry the egg? "Any questions?"

Lastly, I have this:
I did this for the TwobyTwo. You'll have to tune in next week to see what this could possibly have to do with "Echo." Head over to that blog tomorrow--Tuesday, natch--for the challenge post.
Be sure to check out all the associated blogs! And have a brilliant day!
