an equal opportunity eater.
Taking the neurosis out of food, one meal at a time.

Traditionally, the day after Thanksgiving I blast the Christmas carols. Traditionally, a week before Christmas my family is ready to crucify me.
In any case, each December we choose and test-run a new album. Last year we invested in and were disappointed by Annie Lennox's. This time we bought and fell in love with KiHo'alu Christmas, Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. My favorite quirky album has got to be the one pictured here. Listening, you may find Martha Wainwright's "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year," incorporates all the wistful angst of scattered adult Christmases, while Rufus Wainwright's dark and dismal "Counting Stars," from its first dissonant notes makes my daughter and me giggle uncontrollably. What are your seasonal music traditions?
