If my mom (the now Nana con Queso) is right, and you are what you put in your head, then the Hurricane and I are as follows:
Me: Besides about 40 blogs (Most are found by links in the comments section, so link to them and read them; they’re good. If you comment here and don’t have a blog, you should…Super Zoe, Sistaconqueso, Em, Janey, Merkin, etc…because they’d be really good reads, and I’d read them.), I finally finished “The History of Love” this weekend. Fantastic.
The Hurricane: Amy Wilson Sanger books. Perfect for a little foodie. He especially likes “First Book of Sushi” and “Hola Jalapeno!”. Let me just give you a taste of the first two pages…”Hola Jalapeno! I say, hello my chile friend. Seniorita Quesadilla, cheese is melting out your end.” And. There’s really no need to say more.
Me: Just bought the new one from Madeleine Peyroux on Friday to listen to on our drive out of town. I’m still listening to it tonight. It’s fantastic for a rainy night in.
The Hurricane: This is a must have. “The Colours Are Brighter” CD is a collection of children’s songs by Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, Belle & Sebastian, The Divine Comedy, and so on, to raise funds for the Save the Children Charity. It’s hands-down the best children’s album I’ve ever heard. Much better than the Baby Einstein Traveling Songs CD, which actually drove me so crazy that I was forced to throw it out of the car window last week.
Me: In an experiment, we have ditched cable television. I know. But since all of our favorite HBO shows are off until next year, we thought it would be a good time to see how much less TV we watched if we only have the networks. So, I currently watch this, along with the rest of the world. And reading what the writers blog about it the next day, is almost as fun as watching it.
The Hurricane: Charlie and Lola. I’m not sure who loves this more. Him or me. Probably me. Lucky for us, we have about 27 episodes on our TiVo. And I never get tired of them. The Hurricane doesn’t seem to either. Plus, it provides the best background noise of anything currently on TV today.
Me: My latest shoe purchase.
The Hurricane: His latest shoe purchase.
