Getting the mix just right

As I mentioned earlier, my good wife does all the leg work as far as dough mixing and topping prep goes. The hard part though is over to me... choosing the right cd to get the ball rolling. I have somewhere in the region of 400 CDs so you'd think picking one would be easy. Nope, quite the opposite in fact. I reckon I spend about the same time choosing a cd some Fridays as it takes her to chop the toppings. You simply can't rush this.

Now with a blog on the go there's added pressure. I can't have a collective rolling of the eyes or a reaching for the "close tab" button. I tried the random approach. Start at the end of my (alphabetised) collection, pick a random number and count backwards.... Hmmm, note to self "remove the kids' CDs." I am NOT kicking this thing off with "Now That's What I Call Music Vol 30". Especially since it is NOT what I call music...

In the end I opted for a failsafe sing-along fave of mine; The Cure - Disintegration Robert Smith. A genius in lipstick.

I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are all I can feel

Next weapon of choice: Montana South Island Pinot Noir, that should loosen the vocal chords. Watch out kids... Daddy's singing old music again.
