WO: Weekly Obsessions
I’m feeling especially peppy this evening, perhaps because I was up earlier than normal and did some good for my community. Or because I have a phone date with my mom tonight and can’t wait to hear her voice. Whatever the reason, here are four more things to celebrate:
- SF-Marin Food Bank: I had the pleasure of volunteering at the SF-Marin Food Bank this morning. The hours passed quickly, thanks in large part to lively crew mates and tunes. But even more exciting than that? The 4,200 pounds of rice we packed will feed more than 16,000 Bay Area residents in need.
- Ben’s Bitter Award: My fellow blogger and favorite naysayer, Ben, is up for an awesome award — and he only wants 2nd place! So go vote for him and tell all your friends … because 2nd place for WEBLOG OF THE YEAR is hardly impressive.
- A Song A Day: Speaking of my talented friends, you should todes sign up for my friend Shannon’s site, A Song A Day. I’m discovering great artists and songs I’d have otherwise never known … plus Shannon is like, the best. You can also sign up to be a curator and help others find solid tunes. So do it!
- “Weathervane” – PigPen Theatre Co.: This was the first (of many) gems found by the curators at A Song A Day. It’s moody and brooding and all the things I love to tune into when I need to zone out.

I did get second place by the way (or at least that’s how I’m gonna play it),
You know what they say: First is the worst, second is the best 🙂
If that’s the case, I’m the best in a lot of aspects!
Thanks for pimping me on here! I finally made your obsession list!
I can’t believe it’s taken me that long to feature your blog! For shame…
Yeah, so shameful. By the way, I really like your Facebook photo of your friend doing your hair or something? You looked great!
Thanks! I had to get a new stylist when I moved to SF, and she’s blown me away each time 🙂
Nice to find a new one in the area. It’s hard to find good stylist help.
Thank you so much for including A Song A Day, Amanda! We ❤ you! Also, this song is a great one. I hadn't heard it before. I think John Meyers is your curator, right? Anyway, you're the best and I love that you volunteered this morning!
