Saturday afternoon jam, March 22 edition

This must be the first Saturday in at least two months that my day has not been swamped with some sort of obligation, work-related or otherwise. I mean, don't get me wrong I've done a little bit of work (for school) but mostly this has been a very Saturday kind of Saturday: Lazy and unproductive.

Later we'll head over to some friends' house for dinner so I suppose that means I'll need to put on proper clothes and brush my hair. Then again, they're really good friends and probably would understand if I showed up in pajamas with a rats nest for hair.

Until then: Laziness. I slept in. By which I mean I got up at 8 a.m. and drank coffee and read and then by 10:30 I was falling asleep with a book in my lap so I went back to bed for an hour-and-a-half nap. Three out of four cats joined me. Bliss.

Got up, ate lunch, did a little bit of work on the laptop, still in my pajamas.

Made brownies to take over to our friends' house so I guess that counts as something productive.

Meanwhile, Cory's provided the soundtrack to the day; spinning records by, among others,  The Felt, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Neil Young.

The latter's "Down by the River" played as I made brownies and I'm not sure what version of the song it was but it played for a long time and as I listened, it struck me that it's the perfect Saturday afternoon kind of song: Long and meandering, lazily snaking its way through time.

Happy Saturday, carry on:
