    Hehehehe…I needed this post at the (near) end of my work day 🙂 I wish I could have seen the teenagers face.

    On irrelevant photo matters, the chilli peanut butter also looks amazing. It would be difficult to fully make up for the loss of dark chocolate peanut butter, but that jar looks like it would at least help.

    As a child I was so envious of kids at the tramstop while I was stuck in the car with my parents but then as a student I was envious of car occupants as I stood at freezing tram stops. As a cyclist I loved whizzing past cars but now I am in cars I often wish I was in a cycle – this is a roundabout explanation for why the sullen teenager was staring at you – it looked like freedom! Enjoy the walking and singing!

    Oh you’ve won me over with Dr Horrible. All of their songs are frequently sung in our house – “and even that guy who smells like poo….”

    Hannah the world needs more of your kind of craziness!
    I must confess, I’m feeling a little anxious. Now that you’re a busy working girl, I’m scared that soon you won’t have much time left over for us!
    I’d love you to tell us which books you’ve enjoyed lately. 🙂
    And I LOVE irrelevant photos! 😉

    Hehe you see this is why we’re friends. Because I sing when I walk along the street too. Which causes Mr NQN to drop my hand and walk some distance from me. Isn’t that mean! 😛

  7. Fiona

    Hehe you won’t be the only crazy one around there I’m sure

    What books? Don’t tell me – Sweet Valley Confidential!!!!!

    Tell me the book too!

    I get caught playing “air instruments” in my car all the time. I play drums on my steering wheel, air guitar, but my favorite is the air fiddle. Stopped at a red light, I sing so loud and play my air fiddle, and I get caught all the time by the people one car over. Whatever, I just hope I made their day!!!

    p.s. I was singing “I Need a Doctor” by Eminem so loud the other night, I imagine people in other cars could hear me.
    p.p.s. When I listen to my ipod while walking, I never sing out loud, but I dance. I would say I channel Ellen, but really, she channels me.

    Now you just need a cat and you can be a crazy cat lady. We have a woman in town who sings at the intersections- everyone in town has always wondered if there actually is music playing through the headphones. It’s always tempting to think that there isn’t….

    And you know that you can’t get away with that book teaser Madam. Spill. Love the random photos BTW, the nougat looks especially amazing.

    I’d love to be able to walk to work, but then I reckon I’ll end up running most of the time cos I’d always sleep in until as late as possible! lol.

  13. Ashley @ Thefitacademic

    Whoa, I need to know what book you’re talking about! Sounds great! And Chili PB? Ummm – I’d totally get on some spicy PB-sauce thai food!!! YUM!

  14. Errign

    I love doing things that are just so clearly ME. While I’m not the singing on the sidewalk type (though I perhaps would be if I could sing!), I am the break out in the random dance party or yell something real loud and embarrassing to friends type 🙂

  15. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Haha, you are so funny! I rarely sing out loud, but one time I was so happy to be done with a run that I was belting Simon and Garfunkel at the top of my lungs. Oh, the looks I received 🙂

  16. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    haaha I’m always singing too! Sometimes from far away, i think people give me the “look” is she….okay? 😉 And chili pb sounds quite intriguing, wow!

  17. Simply Life

    oooh that pb looks fun!

  18. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I love it! 😀

    I’m totally addicted to my iPod / music player and always listen to music while walking around. However, I don’t sing because I listen to a lot of electronic or classical (instrumental) music. But it happens that I stand at the tram stop and dance while waiting for the tram. 😉

  19. Jonathon Clarke

    Wonderful post, as always! I do have to ask, though; which book ‘pulled the rug out from under your feet’?? 😉

  20. Priyanka

    Nathan Fillion!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the twitter link up…I can now follow him.

  21. whisperinggums

    I’ll have to start driving down that thoroughfare at peak hour as I love to be entertained as I drive.

  22. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    I thought I read it wrongly at first – Chilli Peanut Butter? Are you serious? I didn’t know such a flavour existed. But oh well, if chilli chocolate taste good, chilli peanut butter shouldn’t be that bad as well I suppose? I think your craziness just brightens up my day! Hope all’s well at work for you:)

  23. Susan

    Yeah let us know which books they are, I am always looking for good books to read. I don’t really sing when I am walking down the street by myself, but I totally do it in my car.

  24. Anna Johnston

    So that was you 🙂 Girl, all you need now is a few people banging drums & blowing whistles & this town will be rockin’. Your bringing this ‘I’m a morning person & proud of it’ to a whole new level 🙂

    I randomly broke out into song last night when walking on campus (what better way than random to break out in song?!). The song was a belter, and around me it was dark and silent – except for everyone who heard me, I bet. gives a good idea of the volume the song has to be sung at. Oh dear!

    Chili peanut butter- Yum! Though it seems like a perfect pairing, I have yet to see it executed properly… I tried a jar of Peanut Butter and Co’s “The Heat is On” two weeks ago (and I normally adore their stuff)… And must say, I was very disappointed. It was lacking in complexity, and just tasted HOT, and much too much so! Nothing more than a blast of miscellaneous spice, and maybe some peanuts on the side. Not one I can eat simply in a sandwich, and it even made my peanut satay sauce too hot! Ridiculous… Anyway, what brand is that? I’ve never seen another spicy peanut butter on store shelves before.

    Good on you for doing what makes you happy. The world needs more of that, I think.

    Speaking of books, but not books with any greatly complicated plotline, have you read any Edward Monkton, or his alter ego Giles Andreae

    This post makes me think of his books. and at his other site you can watch the Pig of Happiness movie

    hahah!! hannah, you ARE one crazy lady. i love it!
    spicy peanut butter?! i’m a little weary of spicy+sweet mixtures, but i want to try this!!

  29. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    I wish that I lived a 20 minute walk from my office, but I mostly wish that I encountered someone like you on the walk there. We could do duets along the way, possibly holding a hat out to collect money to buy our morning coffee from passersby so enamoured with our singing prowess and fabulous outfits that they can’t help but throw money in our hat, day after day.

    Can you imagine?

    […] I’ve already mentioned, it’s a twenty minute walk from my house. A twenty minute sing-along […]
