Oops, I almost let June pass by without a listening diary, but some unexpected free time late at night on June 22 sees me beginning this post as I cast my mind back and try to remember what I've been listening to these past few weeks.
Yum! I bought some pancake mix recently and have been making tons of dscrumptious banana pancakes. Here's my secret recipe set to the groovy 1960s sounds of compsoer John Williams:
And watch out for that second egg. There was something very very wrong with it: it felt wrong, looked wrong, smelt wrong, and tasted wrong.
