    Happy New Year, friend! I love how you capture just what Samantha is… she is escape, she is being enveloped, she is a world where you are lost in her strife struggle celebration madness and it is relief from my own for awhile. I love her. Please get her book.

    Booze: Evil Twin is now on my mental shopping list. The liquor store attached to our larger supermarket has an amazingly extensive selection of craft beers, so I am optimistic I can find it. They even had Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, which I had discovered in NYC.
    Books: I requested all four of the books you recommended. Not sure how closely our reading tastes coincide — I tend toward murder/suspense/scifi — but I’m always looking for a good read.
    Confirmation bias: “Avoid confirmation bias” should be my *one* word for 2016.
    Had I been at your house during the magic week, I might well have joined the blue-hair-dyed set. (It’s less permanent than getting a tattoo.)
    Growing up in a small town, I empathize with the writer of the McDonald’s/Arctic Circle essay. I felt like I had joined the rest of the world when I came to Minneapolis to attend the U of M. I kinda think Elder Son felt that way when he left rural WI for New York University in Manhattan. (But nine years later he was ready for the Midwest again.)
    Your Dear Mama is now in my Feedly, thanks!
    Will check out Catastrophe, now that I (think that I) have access to Amazon Prime.
    Group hug to you, too, buddy!
