January: Favorites (no order)

1) all the friends who make me roffle and keep me sane
2) The versions of Debussy's "Beau Soir" and Schumann's "Mondnacht" on Classical Barbra (the album's not a masterpiece, but it's quite good when Babs scales back the little Broadway showstopping that's there and respects the material, and when the lieder she's singing aren't frothy/gothy middlebrow crowd-pleasers like Fauré or Orff)
3) Pete Seeger's "Walking Down Death Row" (on Dangerous Songs!?)
4) E! True Hollywood Story (recently watched: Angelina Jolie, Meg Ryan, Mel Gibson, Tawny Kitaen)
5) the jukebox at the Commonwealth (and also the cheap, cold Amstel Light)
6) Kidz Bop's enthusiastic and letter-perfect rendering of Crazy Frog's "Axel F" (a/k/a "The Frog Song") (and apparently Kidz Bop 9 has "Pon De Replay" and "Wake Me Up When September Ends"!)
7) The Sleuth Channel (cop shows galore, including Miami Vice)
8) Trader Joe's Tuna in Red Panang Curry Sauce with TJ's jasmine rice
9) learning that not only can I buy a Slurpee in the borough of Manhattan, but i can buy a sugar-free Slurpee!
10) my local likka sto and wino emporium
