Who Remembers Playing the F*cking Recorder? Or not Playing?

recorder-instrument

I was listening to City of the Sun last night, and got to thinking about that stupid instrument I had to play in 4th/5th grade. The flute. Nope. Actually, the recorder. It was 25 years ago, but I have a couple distinct memories from music class. One, my teacher looking at me with that look that I knew meant “what the heck are you doing ruining the song for the entire class? How are you so bad at this?“. Second, constantly pretending to play along, but not really blowing at all (so as not to actually make any noise) without getting caught by the teacher. So, who else played that f*cking recorder — but didn’t really PLAY the recorder? [Graphic via Musicalnose.com]

I hope one of the AirBnB execs called this couple and offered them a few free nights of accommodation…I know I would if I were in their shoes.

The Best Creation EVER

BourbonPecan

What is it? Simple. Spiked Peanut Butter. Enter Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter (by Reginald’s). Are you kidding me? Peanut butter, which is utterly amazing on its own, teamed with bourbon? How could it get any better than that? Oh yea, more bourbon. College would have been even more awesome if we had thought to spike peanut butter & jelly sandwiches to bring to class. My mind is racing with possibilities. PB & rum? PB & vodka? PB & tequila? PB & jager (gross)? Hands down, Spiked Peanut Butter is the best creation ever. Now, if only I could find peanut butter abroad – I’d be all set. PS: My friend Katie gets the hat tip for … Continue reading
