Happy Thursday. Let’s do the weekly random thing, shall we? First things first, though. What are you having for breakfast? I have savory oats on the menu. I made a double-batch of this recipe the other day—makes my life so much easier on busy mornings! All I have to do is reheat in the glass pyrex container I stored it in and then pour into a bowl and top with whatever I’m in the mood for. It (almost) keeps me full until lunch. The concept of getting from breakfast to lunch on a hospital-shift day without a little hangry episode is completely foreign to me. For better or worse, I’m one of those people who’s really hungry at breakfast and lunch but doesn’t need a huge dinner to feel satisfied.
Anyway. Though I could talk about Fourth of July happenings, I honestly have no idea if I’m doing anything festive yet, and since I haven’t blabbed about music in a while, I thought I’d share some recent musical obsessions.
*Rilo Kiley’s “Let Me Back In.” I even had a dream about singing this in a friend’s dark kitchen recently as part of some DIY karaoke party my subconscious was having.
*The other ones are Conor Oberst’s “Time Forgot”
and “Double Life.”
My favorite recordings of both are actually from this NPR Tiny Desk Concert.
*I’ve been making my “Reign of Cancer” playlist for this year. Yes, all my Spotify playlists have a little something to do with astrology. If the shoe fits. This one is a little watery (half-weary, half-hopeful?) and weird and a little bit folksy. Or a lot bit folksy. This time of year, I’m embarrassingly in touch with my 18, 19-year-old self, who was all about the 1960’s and 70’s. Who am I kidding? Not like much has changed there. I was going to say this would be great for a yoga flow, but maybe it’s better for a therapeutic cleaning session. Please tell me I’m not not the only one who grabs a mop and a bunch of rags and Windex when things get stormy in the ol’ brain.
Do you make playlists? Any music obsessions lately?
