Monday Miscellany

1. During the course of downloading "I Believe" for my post about Stevie Wonder, I came across a version by the University of Wisconsin all-male a cappella group The Madhatters. Oh my god, you guys, you need to hear this song. It's on iTunes and it is soooo good. Is it just me, or does really good a cappella give you chills, too? ::shiver::

2. Am I the only one who didn't know that Toyota car company was named after the founder of the company, just like Ford? I don't know why I was surprised by that, but I was. I guess I just never thought of it.

3. Although I am not a big fan of winter at the moment, I am a big fan of that time in the morning when everything is still and the snow sparkles here and there like diamonds on a white blanket. Especially when I get to go back inside and have cocoa after looking at it.

4. I'm really enjoying the new season of Friday Night Lights. I like what they're doing with Tyra's character, and Tim Riggins is cracking me up (CALL ME, TIM), and you should be watching this show.


Maybe I should be, but I'm not. So there. Perhaps we should start a list of shows that people ARE watching but which they should not be, like "Two and a Half Men." Or anything with a colon in the title.

This post's "word" verification? Hamnost. So close, so close. Sounds like a word. Maybe in another language.
