The Soothing Sounds Of...Me 

Alarm at 7:30, and barely made it to the bathroom, even hunched over like an octagenarian. Back to bed immediately, alarm reset for 8:30, hoping for a miracle.

No such luck.

Skipped work. Slept until noon, and woke up unmovable, my back on fire.

So I've been on my back all day, aside from a few sessions in chairs, my daughter on my lap, her "computer" balanced on my precarious knee. Didn't put on clothes. Spent a fruitless hour in the bath, rust dust collecting by the drain.

But they say music is theraputic, and I sure hope they're right. I'm here, anyway, cranked up on coffee and Aleve in the basement of good old Stone Hall, broadcasting to the unseen uncalling hordes, hoping for the best. The show must go on, eh?

Playlist follows, as always. Breaks represent anecdotes from tonight's bedtime story readings, as always on the hour and the half hour, and taken this evening from the Alvin Schwartz collection of bear stories Fat Man In A Fur Coat.

maybe it's just me or the playlist looks short for this 'un?

lovely songs though (as usual)

"Thiiiis is me in graaade 9 baby, this is me in grade 9. this is me in grade 9, baby, this is me in grade 9 ..."

if I had a million dollars...
Hit "publish" instead of "draft" midshow, Shaw -- but good of you to notice, eh?

Well, as they say, "you don't know the half of it!" Hope you enjoy the second half as much as you did the first!
Sounds like a lovely, laid back playlist for a day when you're feeling under par.

Hope you recover!

yup - nice selections. i dig 'um
