Mites vs. Peewees

After seeing the new Dunkin Donuts commercial (the Peewee hockey one), I demanded that BH Google to determine who was behind the catchy jingle. Was it Fountains of Wayne? No, word on the street is that it's They Might Be Giants,, the nicest band I ever met (tm). I crewed a show they did just after their first album, and they were funny, humble and grateful to everyone on our staff. And of course they rocked the house.

I got a chuckle though from a comment on another blog critiquing the commercial for showing kids who are supposedly too young to be in the official Peewee age class. I guess "freezing at Mites hockey" just didn't sound as good...

The cold wind is howling outside and I have an inexplicable urge to get to a DD, stat.

You gotta cut down on yer pool-playin' mate. Get some exercise!

Z seems very musically inclined, and enjoys the mix tape CDs we listen to on our commute to preschool. This week she is a backup singer for Blur, and I have to bite my lip to keep from cracking up when a winsome little voice peeps "Park Life!" at the correct intervals from the backseat. She's stronger on the chorus though - "All the people/So many people..." Which come to think of it must be how our rush hour crawl seems to her.

Two weeks into my new job at a different locale. I miss my old friends (who threw me a boffo farewell bash) but I'm liking the new place so far.
