Ooh - I was wondering about Barbara Kingsolver's latest. Let me know how you like it, Suze!

Thanks for responding, Mom! Your stew sounds delicious and now I'm hungry!

Jake said...

1. Tan socks and running shoes

Suze said...

Pam, I'm reading the new Kingsolver book awfully slowly (I just don't get much reading time these days) but it's quite good. It would help if I knew more about mid-20th-century Mexican history, though...

Scott said...

1. Old, worn out comfy socks.
2. MacBook Pro.
3. Not quite as freezing cold as it has been... lots of melting snow on the roof that I fear is about to re-freeze on my doorstep.
4. "The Manual of Detection" by Jedediah Berry (a friend of mine from college who now has a widely-published novel. it's great... kind of like a surrealist, punk-ish noir crime novel.)
5. I just watched the DVD of "Iron Man" with friends.
6. A singer I play for, who was setting up a time for a coaching.
7. I finished school in 2005. If I were to take classes again, they might be conducting classes. Or baking classes.
8. I drank a scotch with the movie. I ate popcorn too. Popcorn and scotch was an oddly satisfying combo.
9. I've been listening a lot to Owen Pallett's "Heartland" album.

P.S. Ooooh new Barbara Kingsolver. I want to read it too! My wife is currently reading it... and we're moving in August, to the town where she lives! (I can't wait to randomly see her at the grocery store or something.)

Pam said...

Scott - Where are you moving? Virginia? What is prompting the move?

Suze said...

Scott, that is SO COOL. She is one of my favorite writers ever. I have read every book she's ever written, including one from her journalism days in the early 1980s about a mining strike in AZ. Good luck with all the transitions, especially with a little one in tow. That town in VA sounds like a beautiful place!

Scott said...

Kelly got a tenure-track job at Emory and Henry College, a great little liberal arts school in VA that happens to be the school where Barbara Kingsolver's husband teaches. I loooove her stuff too, though I've only read two books. I need to read more. Also, we're expecting a second baby girl in May! And I'll be a stay-at-home dad next year down in beautiful Appalachian country. VERY excited!

Pam said...

That's SO awesome, Scott! :-)
