Great comment purpleartichokes! Today's creates have filled my head full of fun things ... and it's great when they fill it with music! Even when I wish I had a stop/play button after it repeats itself for too long!

Here's a tune for the day: "Uhm, forgettable, that's what you are. Uhm, forgettable, though near or far..." - Nat King Cole (not referring to you BTW, purpleartichokes!!)
