Trying to fall asleep late on a Friday night...and all I can hear are mockingbirds.
Reminds me of this...
"Mockingbirds are the true artists of the bird kingdom. Which is to say, although they're born with a song of their own, an innate riff that happens to be one of the most versatile of all ornithological expressions, mockingbirds aren't content to merely play the hand that is dealt them. Like all artists, they are out to rearrange reality. Innovative, willful, daring, not bound by the rules to which others may blindly adhere, the mockingbird collects snatches of birdsong from this tree and that field, appropriates them, places them in new and unexpected contexts, recreates the world from the world. For example, a mockingbird in South Carolina was heard to blend the songs of thirty-two different kinds of birds into a ten-minute performance, a virtuoso display that served no practical purpose, falling, therefore, into the realm of pure art."

Other than being artists and composers, I also believe mockingbirds are insomniacs.
Made to feel worn in and soft just like a good book, these t-shirts not only give you a way to sport your favorite classic when your iPad can't do the job, but the company also donates a book for every t-shirt sold via Books for Africa.
I came across a recipe for "Sunday Morning Crepes" and decided to give it a try (on a Saturday).
First I went to market to get some supplies...
Then I started on the batter, which is EASY! You just plop some of it down on a griddle or pan (lightly oiled) and they take about 1 minute on each side. I would recommend using a pan instead of a griddle, to get a nice circular shape - but I might have had such a rough time because our griddle pops up in the middle, making for strange shaped crepes.
Then you simply put on some jam, jelly, fruit (whatever it is you'd like) and ta-dahh!

I'm making broccoli casserole right now. I'm not sure if I'll even like it! Something about the word casserole usually makes me think "ew" but maybe this is another dish that with age, I'm learning to enjoy.
