Yesterday was a gloomy, rainy day and I got sucked into a wormhole of watching Chris Cornell videos and tributes on YouTube. I had never seen this cover and I didn't even know it existed. It's so beautiful I had to share. I also stumbled across a video of him covering Billie Jean, yes that Billie Jean! It was pretty amazing. I also watched several videos of him singing duets with various people, and what struck me is his respect for other singers. He has such a powerful, strong voice and he really holds back when he's singing with someone else to not overpower them. It shows a level of respect and a lack of ego that is just really refreshing.
Since I had a pretty melancholy day with quite a few tears shed, I wanted something easy but delicious for dinner. I've been craving cold sesame noodles for awhile, so I decided to make that happen. I used tahini for the sauce, and they turned out really tasty. Cold sesame noodles are a favorite takeout food of mine back when I used to actually eat takeout. I wrote down what I used so I could share!

This morning I was looking everywhere for Afro and couldn't find her. I was starting to panic even though obviously she had to be somewhere. But I have been watching Supernatural and things disappear on that show all the time. Anyway, I found her in the cat room laying under a shred of paper looking at me like I was crazy!
Caroline sent. She loves this toy so much she sometimes brings it to bed! Brutus is nowhere to be found at this moment!
