This is basically the best birthday mix I’ve ever seen.  Thanks, me!  What a great present!  I will listen to it on the way to school tomorrow!  And also during plan period!  And possibly on headphones while my students do Socratic Circles.  Is that rude?

I kind of love the Friday/Saturday birthday double-punch combo.  See, I get them both.  I CLAIM them both.  These days, these days, I turn 31.  31 is prime.  I hate 2010, but I may love 31, so…they’re going to have to fight it out.  No hair-pulling, boys.

    What is unfortunate about your playlist is that I cannot hear it also. I am so hung on Rufus right now it is quite rediculous and silly. I feel I must branch out for some odd need not to seem autistic or narrow in my taste for what appeals to me…but the thought of rocking back and forth to the one fab album of his with these incredible headphones that B. was kind enough to lend me, seems like a great idea. I’m glad to be reminded that there are other musicians out there though.
