the Tuesday Song of the Week

So beautiful.

Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks Theme

Resurfacing yet again.

So I was sick for a week two weeks ago (I think it was two weeks ago), and then I was good for a week, but super busy, and now I'm sick again.

Which, believe you me, is sickening.

Nevertheless, I'll try to come up with a Tuesday Song of the Week, and a Daily Double or three.

Sorry to be MIA

I know you're missing your Daily Doubles (as well you should) but I'm crazy busy, plus I am in desperate need of
 a nap.
The above is my cat Tippy aka Lady Tippington aka Tippulah (pronounced 'Tipyoolah).  Thank you.


So, why not comfort yourself by looking at all the thoroughly AWESOME neckties in my Zazzle store??

the Tuesday Song of the Week

This is one of those songs that never stops being cool.
'Time Out of Mind' - Steely Dan

My 'Time Out of Mind' memory: at the time this was a hit, I was working after school and on weekends in a secondhand bookstore.  So one evening, I was on a ladder shelving books, and this came on, and I sorta kinda lost it and fell off the ladder.  

However, the ladder was only 4' high, so I lived to shelve another day.

your Daily Double or GET IT GET IT GET IT

I spent so much time on the blog yesterday that the Daily Double was completely forgotten.

Obviously.

Lovely hat, lovely lady.
