CRAMDEN! We meet again...

btw, I should have specified earlier--the original meme only asked for "3 favorite songs". To accomodate my own brand of obsessive music-listening, I had to add the "3 songs I've been listening to obsessively" category. I apologize for any confusion.

And now, back to our regular programming.

One got said pants over a year ago at Eddie Bauer for too much money even after a 20% discount. I do like their pants in general, particularly the jeans. They're comfortable and fit well--although, again, they can be pricey, at least by my income's standards.
