Best Blueberry Pancakes Ever

I didn't take pictures, but here's the recipe.
(this is a basic buttermilk pancake recipe. It's really good plain and it's really good with whatever lil thing you want to add. In fact, using half the flour and making up the difference in buckwheat flour makes a really really good buckwheat pancake)

1 egg
1 cup buttermmilk
2 tbsp melted shortening (or oil)
1 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 baking soda
1/2 - 1 cup blueberries (fresh or rinsed and well drained frozen)

Beat egg with whisk.
Add all ingredients one at a time as listed until everything is combined and batter is smooth.
Gently stir in blueberries.

drop by 1/3 cup fulls ( I actually use a measuring cup, but you can just ... make them the size you like) on hot (low-medium or about 200 degrees) griddle/large pan/electric skillet. If you're not using a griddle, a lil cooking spray is a good idea to make them easy to move.

cook until they're full of bubbles and edges start to look a lil solid and less shiney.
Flip them and cook for another couple minutes.

Ever have the urge to staple your hair?
I used to wrap chunks of hair in pipecleaners for lil ... multicolored bendable dredlockish things...
I've also used just plain silver wire for weird lil pony tail holders and interesting weave things (when I was much more into the complex macrame crap and used to regularly make 7 strand flat braids in my hair... I don't think I even remember how to do those without a reference book)

But I wonder how it would be with staples?
They'd be a bitch to get out, I think.

the aphex twin remix of mindstream is really beautiful in this odd way
I didn't realize it was the song at first with that slowly gaining, ethereal, wailing/chanting.
I forgot that I'd been hearing the same beat over and over and was concentrating on what I thought was noise coming from outside of the headphones. I thought it was the tv behind me. And it was just .. drowning out the song. But that didn't seem right.
Why would the tv be so loud?
So I turned down the volume ... and realized it had been the song sneaking up on me.

thinking about it now, it's not all that magical. But in retrospect is not where magic lives.
