I love Sunday mornings.
Tobie and I wake up, he brings me breakfast in bed (and a delicious americano).
And we either listen to a "This American Life" podcast, a CBC Ideas podcast, or we watch a CBC episode of Q* (because now they also film the radio broadcasts). I know, it's nerdy, but it's our way of staying somewhat connected to our roots. Makes us feel a little less homesick. Which we both are, most of the time.
Then I start school work and Tobie practices.
Today we watched the Q interview with Paul Shaffer. It was pretty hilarious, if you've got 20 mins it's entertaining and worth a watch. But the pinnacle of the interview was when Jian Ghomeshi brought up that Paul Shaffer had written some award winning music, and a number one hit, "It's Raining Men". To which Paul said that it was kind of awkward to have been a bachelor at the time and only known for writing the song (implying it could have easily destroyed his chances with any future women). But his rationale was,
"You gotta be straight to have written a song like, 'It's Raining Men'".
I don't quite get the logic but I thought it was brilliant.
Off to try and wrap my brain around the kidney. Ugh. Hormones, pumps, ions--oh my!
*This all started because of the famous Bill-E-Bob interview, also highly recommended. You can watch Billy have a little temper tantrum on live national radio. I am not going to lie, Jian gives me a rash sometimes but my respect for him as an interviewer began when I watched him handle this debacle. Paul Shaffer actually alluded to the Bill-ee interview as well.
