Good morning and happy Thursday! Here’s some random stuff on my mind today.
- The Elvis Costello/Roots collaboration, Wise Up Ghost—I love the sound and totally dig the way obscure Elvis Costello lyrics crop up in random places.
- The Avett Brothers’ Magpie and the Dandelion got me through work yesterday. Seriously, there should be a rule about how many people are allowed to be admitted to a given unit on a given day, but having this album on repeat helped me get all my notes done and retain a good mood. I didn’t even know they had a new album coming out, so it was kind of like surprise Christmas in October.
Also, I saw this poem floating around Facebook yesterday. Pretty freaking awesome. Once in a great while, I miss spending more time around the performance poetry scene—so many talented young women telling it like it is and refusing to keep quiet about stuff that matters.
Orange vegetables. During lunch yesterday, while enjoying some roasted butternut squash (having already enjoyed pumpkin oatmeal for breakfast), I decided I should probably take a break from the beta-carotene soon. Or at least cut back before I turn orange. Starting next week…
What are your Thursday things?
