Ms. Mckay On My Computer
Currently I have been listening to the fun, fantastic Nellie McKay. I have a soft spot for a girl who wears thrift store vintage, plays a ukulele, pays tribute to Doris Days, is an activist, and smiles. She may only be 27, but she is packing lots of talent. I like that she is kind of quirky and silly. Her song Mother of Pearl is a funny and smart song on feminism, while her latest album (Simple As Blueberry Pie) recalls a gosh-golly-and gee whiz kind of attitude.
Her music is great to listen to while the hum of the sewing machine whirs on, or while knitting needles click clack together, or really anywhere. With that being said, I think I will pick up my sticks and have a moment while the wee one sleeps.
