As I type this, E is chatting into my iPod. He seems to believe it's a phone.

Recently, I discovered Kate Christensen. Of course, I'd seen The Great Man in stores many times, but I was put off by the fake New York Times article at the beginning of the story. Once the actual narrative starts, though, it's great. I'm glad I finally gave it a chance. The main characters are all at least 74, and portrayed very differently than the elderly usually are.

After I finished The Great Man, I started reading Trouble by the same author. And after that, I hope to read In the Drink (her first novel).

Tomorrow I hop on a train to go to Massachusetts for Christmas...anyone else traveling for the holidays? I hope you have a good one.

I hope you have a good one, too. I am envious that you live in a place where you can hop on a train!

Safe travels and happy, happy holidays!

I'm going to VT next weekend (New Year's).
