Long noodles

I have been reading with interest the reviews of Andrew Solomon's book, Far from the Tree. The book is about "horizontal" children - children that are so different from their parents that instead of a vertical passing of similar characteristics, they are horizontal from their parents and live in a world completely different from what their parents are used to. I suppose I count Edda as my own horizontal child. He interviewed many, many families with horizontal children and the book has been getting favorable reviews. I will read it when I get a chance to - probably in a few years knowing the rate at which I read books. When it does get to the top of my list, I'm hoping that I will find it more interesting than the Noonday Demon, which also had a very personal topic, but I found not very interesting to read.

I am really a Scrooge for the holidays, I'm trying to be in a better mood by listening to the Pandora Christmas channel all day. Thanksgiving was lovely, lots of food which started with long noodles on the 21st for my mother's birthday.

Pandora Christmas channel would make me run screaming from the room like a Charlie Brown character. "AAAAAAGGH!"I'd be a super scrooge if I had to listen that stuff.
Maybe you should try listening to something else like say "KOKE FM 98.5 here in Austin.
