these are a few of my favorite things

i love the caveman commercials. this is one of the first. the song is, "remind me" by Royksopp.

this one. i love this one. it never gets old for me. the song is "hurt you" by The Sounds.

the free credit tunes get stuck in my head for weeks at a time, so i have just learned to live with it and i have even grown to like it. oh, and the credit report is NOT free. its a lie-- a lie that i want to be told over and over again.

this is not a commercial. this a music video a la Wes Anderson from Vampire Weekend, with whom i share a similar grammatical philosophy . "Oxford Comma" is the name of the tune.

B! Bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

I have fond memories of my mother's banana bread. I mostly remember the anticipation I felt while waiting for the bread to bake and of course the awesomeness of a warm slice of banana bread with tons of butter. Yum. Well, I found my mom's old recipe and I happened to have some overly ripe bananas, so I baked a loaf and Chris called it "Awesome". This made me happy, indeed. So here is the recipe:


3 well-mashed, ripe bananas
2 beaten eggs
2 cups of flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
3/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp. of salt
2 tbs. of melted butter

cook 1 hour at 350

don't forget to grease the pan.

and remember, when you use bananas you are contributing to the degradation of the rain forest. just kidding...sort of.

i forgot to take a picture of the banana bread.
