That's Friday for You Friday Random Ten

A woman at work was talking to one of her employees - she's sort of a boss, I guess, but without the negative connotations - and was using a different voice every few seconds. I asked if the voices were a regular Friday thing. She said yes, in so many words. People get giddy at the end of the week.

1. John Lee Hooker - Burning Hell
2. k.d. lang - Help Me
3. Tori Amos - Doughnut Song
4. Duke Ellington - Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me
5. Nancy Wilson - If It's the Last Thing I Do
6. Reading Rainbow - I See Light
7. Ben Folds Five - Smoke
8. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Rainy Day, Dream Away
9. Nick Drake - Hazey Jane I
10. The New Pornographers - The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism

Are you sure she hadn't had a liquid lunch?

We watched 'Stormy Weather' a few weeks ago. Lena Horn was pretty boring but Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, and Cab Calloway were amazing.

I remember seeing an old movie featuring Lena Horne with you and Jerry. I think it may have been cabin in the sky. But that was some pretty stiff competition you're talking about. Cab Calloway was still a thrilling performer when he was in "The Blues Brothers."
