Jive Monkey Playlist: 5/5/17

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  Happy Children’s Day!  I’m not sure if Spring came quite late this year in the Northeast.  The weather has definitely been temperamental as the temperatures keep going up and down.  However, there have been enough sunny days this week, at least in the mornings, to allow me to order iced cappuccinos and affogatos.  Generally, the sunshine has been putting me in a good mood and has me replaying this week’s playlist song.

Just Bananas About: Week of 4/25/16

After deciding to give Fantastic Duo a try this weekend, I wasn’t prepared for my reaction to it.  Particularly one contestant who goes by the stagename, Fish Cake Girl (aka Kim Da Mi).  As I missed out on watching the pilot back in February, I missed out on this girl’s fantastic duet with Kim Bum Soo.  And what’s even more, she’s hilarious in front of the camera.  Think I got a girl crush.  Heh heh.
