Playlist For Sunday, February, 19, 2017: And I'll Get A Gimmick, Too!

Some people probably don't feel this way....some people are happy with their knitting and their cats, playing bingo, paying rent. But every once in awhile, I feel like playing Andreas Vollenweider. Or Jay and The Americans. Morton Feldman. Guns and Roses. Ever feel that way? You know, wanting to bounce like a wonky tennis ball out of the court, crack the shell of your little cocoon, wish for other side of the planet-ness? Maybe it's spring fever (or more likely cabin fever) that's got me yearning for Different and New. Like... why not croissants and pate, instead of those Wegman's Oat-aramas tomorrow morning? Why not mules and mohair, instead of LLBean flannel (what WOULD the post mistress say...)? Why not Cisco instead of Piccard, Glenn instead of Patti, a boattail instead of a frickin' Ford Fiesta!... Jeez.

I would if I could. But...I won't. I'll tolerate the monotony a little longer, til that black ice out on the drive melts for real, and then I'll have to explode like those dandelions that I know are planning (even now) a cunning coup on my 0.8 acres. Yes (indeedy!), I will eat my morning banana with pride until that metaphorical kiwi ripens, put on my parka until the Blackglama comes back from the dry cleaner, and then...THEN... it will be lovely, there WILL be trumpets, I WON'T be tired, I'll say YES, and it will be my TURN!
