Wed: Thai curried tilapia skillet

I cannot for the life of me remember or find the tofu recipe I used back in November that everyone liked. Grr. I'll try this one. I'll also be making double-apple bran muffins this week.

I have often marveled at the sheer volume of crap that my brain has retained over the years. I might forget that say, tuition is due the same day and in the same amount every single month, but I can sing songs I haven't heard since 1981 and am rather stunningly good at trivia games.

This morning, I heard someone on TV say, "You heard me correctly," and my brain immediately began playing a song, long lost between those wrinkles of gray matter: That's right, you heard us correctly...He'll be right in directly...

On it went, the whole little ditty, and I couldn't recall where I had heard it or why it would be so firmly planted in my subconscious. I closed my eyes: who had the King of Cartoons? Singing flowers?

Aha! Pee-Wee's Playhouse. 1986.

A few nights ago, I saw the name Hecate, and immediately upon reciting a rhyme about Hecate, I looked up the title of the book that included it--a childhood favorite--and put it in my Amazon cart.

I have often wondered why we might forget things that are currently important, yet retain a backlog of classmates' names, song lyrics, literary passages, minute details about things that do not really matter.

While we ponder this, please let me know if you would like for me to recite the Pledge in Latin, the Preamble, all of the Presidents in less than 30 seconds, a randomly-chosen sonnet, or a song you likely haven't heard in 30 years.
