Discovered Laura Mvula after hearing a review of her album on All Things Considered yesterday afternoon while driving home from…MY JEOPARDY AUDITION! Immediately loved everything I heard from it, so added to my Spring 2013 playlist, which is getting pretty long by now:
We had a great time in Nashville. Such a great time that I didn’t even bother to grab my camera out of the trunk! So, no photos come next Tueday…wahhhh. We had a fabulous night out with stops at The Silly Goose, Jeni’s Splendid ice cream, and this bar.
I had a blast at the audition. They try to make it tons of fun and there were lots of very nice people to laugh and chat with. Getting to use a real Jeopardy buzzer? Definitely a dream come true….hahaha. Overall I feel pretty confident about my performance on the test, but you never know. Now it’s waiting game…I could be called to play any time within the next 18 months!

yep, that’s right. this is my shower dancing playlist.
dancing in the shower (preferably with a beverage) is essential and having an iPad has made it so much more fun — put on early 90s pop or Jackie Wilson radio on Pandora and you’re all set! Or you can queue up this playlist…hopefully your shower doesn’t last longer than 9 minutes…haha
“Call Me Maybe” — Carly Rae Jepsen
“Settle Down” — Kimbra
”Take It Out On Me” — Chairlift
