Good lord, I get to do nothing but clean today. To that end, I'm making a Frank Sinatra playlist on my iPod. It has 754 Sinatra recordings on it,* and sometimes I shuffle the whole thing, but that makes it very Columbia Records heavy, and I could turn off shuffle for those songs, but whatever. Anyway.

Maybe I make a three two hour playlist and tell myself I have to finish the cleaning before it is all played.

Here's one you might not have heard, that is about the sweetest thing ever.

*There are probably a couple dozen duplicates because I have the original album and a collection, and haven't weeded them all out.

I enjoyed this. I enjoyed how it was the sort of list I'd want to do, with no bullet points. And it called to mind an odd rhyme my mother sang to me when I was a child. "Mostaciolli*, capacollo, won't you be my pizzaiolo?"

My favorite cookbook to read this year was Dinner with Georgia O'Keeffe: Recipes, Art, Landscape. I bought a copy for one of my daughters for Christmas. The one in the article I'm most interested in is probably Tasting Georgia. Something in that.

*my brain won't let me remember her saying "mostaciollo," but she certainly might have. Or she might have even said all the words with i endings, but more likely she changed it around, because she liked being silly.

Huge martini. 4 oz Hendrick's, 1/2 oz Lillet Blanc, 1/2 oz green Chartreuse. A bit sweet; you'd want a twist of lemon peel, but I was feeling lazy.

I think my entire existence online, as well as my "personality type," has been, if not vindicated, at least therapeutically supported by this article, and I have deep warm feelings for it.

The wild thing is realizing how many people might bother to read it and yet do nothing about how they portray their own perceptions.

A few people used to ache at me that daylight saving time is no good because they need the early morning sun.

It was no use pointing out that with clock time, that is highly dependent on where in your time zone your particular patch of curved earth lies.

It sure isn't light in early morning here. This is a very cloudy region and on top of that, light comes after wakeup and leaves before most people get home. Vitamin D deficiency is common here.

This is the funniest Twitter comment thread I've read in ages. I'm sorry about his giant face.

And the "war on Christmas" subthread is also a hoot.

Cosign every word. Well, except I've always thought he was handsome besides sexy.

Don't feel like retyping. Read this.

As a bonus, read some sound data on the ages of people voting a certain way in this week's election, and other factors, and also the number of people who voted this time who didn't even bother last year.

A picture needs a lot more filling in than what you'll get from clever sound bites.

You know that "lie down with dogs, wake up with fleas" aphorism?

Let's make up some more, like "lie down with the Devil, wake up on fire."

Your turn.
