Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was good, thank you. I saw the movie, Mud, which I loved and highly recommend.

Exercise-wise, Eric and I walked alllll over Boston on Saturday. I’m not even sure how or why but we must have racked up a good 10 miles by the end of the day. On Sunday I went to Bar Method which felt great after a 3 day hiatus and then I watched the French Open.

Any Nadal fans in the audience? Did you see that crazy protester run onto the court with the lit flare that looked like he borrowed a stick of TNT from Wile E Coyote’s collection of ACME products?

It was nuts. I was expecting an anvil to drop from the sky next.

Anyways, the match went on and Nadal pulled through for the win, which makes him the first guy in history to win 8 French Open titles.

Allez Nadal!

Anyways, the inspiration for today’s mixtape has nothing to do with all of that. The inspiration for today’s mixtape came from the following train of thought:

(Friday afternoon)

Inside Charlotte’s head: ‘Who sings that song ‘here I go again’ again? Ah yes, Whitesnake! Thanks Google. You know what song I haven’t heard in a while- Feel Good Inc by the Gorillaz. That was a good song… Oh that’s funny they both use animals in their names, if I had a band I would do that too. Like, Charlotte and the Sharks with Freaking Laser Beams Attached to Their Heads (that would be one of those electronic music bands that also do light shows) or Charlotte and the Sheepdogs (that would be an 80s hair band cover band.) Anyways, I’m hungry, what time is it? What meal am I on?’

(2 days later)

Charlotte aloud to nobody: “Animal band mixtape theme! Bam!”

Did I miss any good animal bands?
