my latest girl crush

yes it’s Karen O!

If I were as hip as her, I’d perform a cityscape musical too!

Karen O (and “the kids”) also did the soundtrack to Where the Wild Things Are… a fantastic book (still need to see the film), though I have to admit my favourite Maurice Sendak book is In the Night Kitchen. Perhaps because of my love affair with baking.

Speaking of which, my mother recently released the phenomenal recipe of her mother’s bread on her blog – wise ones will bake it pronto!  (Hey, then you’ll have bread for turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce sandwiches – trust me, they’re delish.)  We had it braided and sans-Cinnamon for Thanksgiving.

Wow, from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to children’s books to Thanksgiving leftovers…. but it’s all connected!
