she don't use jelly

Last year I avoided complaining about the weather all winter.  It was a resolution of sorts.  Midwesterners are strong, resilient, and capable of handling whatever the brutal sub-zero wasteland brings.  That was last year.  This week, I don't want to get out of bed.  I find myself still wearing my scarf and goofy hat hours after I get home from work.  I have been turning the dial all the way hot in the shower, conservation be damned.  I've cooked dinner in every night just so I can stand near an auxiliary heat source.  Blerg. 

I needed a serious pick-me-up today.  Listening to a particularly moving radio show about Vic Chestnutt sent me into a mini-breakdown before 9:00 am.  I opted for creamy peanut butter, sliced bananas, and honey on whole grain bread and a quick dance party.  I'll take these toppings on a bagel, toast, english muffin...pretty much any wheaty bread product over a pbj anyday.

You gotta have some Elvis on that playlist if you're going to eat his signature dish.

elvis (presley) songs are sorely lacking on my ipod...I will rectify this oversight asap.

I think it's only right to post something from his fat period also. I have no suggestions to give there because I know absolutely nothing about his music from that era.
