GeneralReading, skiing, riding my road bike along the Hudson, Tasti D Lite, riding my Vespa, anything crafty (I'm learning to sew), travel--Morocco is next on the list, red lipstick, writing, Grant, our canary Avey, jazz, fashion week parties, npr, handbags, salsa (the actual food, not the music although that's cool too), Audrey Hepburn, fall in NY, Neil Simon plays, cheap manicures and pedicures, the Sunday Styles section, afternoon naps, did I say Grant?, making up my own lyrics to songs, running into old friends, road trips, Cafe Lalo, free diet coke refills, the mountains, the Book Review, ok--the entire Times but only online, the KGB bar, Capri, when Grant makes me dinner, that new-book smell, humming, my niece Abbie Jane, pants you don't have to wear belts with, natural light!!, Montauk, Edward Hopper, decrepit architecture, The Great Gatsby, Gawker.com, Domino magazine ..
MusicMy all-time, better than any other song on the planet is Crimson and Clover. You just can't top that. I also just got into this old school 70s singer Donovan--you know the Mellow Yellow song? His whole album is good. Also: I still love Vanessa Carlton even though she hasn't done anything in a long time. Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Justin Timberlake, The Velvet Underground, Kathleen Edwards, Cat Power, Kanye West, Bruce Springsteen, Miles Davis, Zero 7, old school Wyclef Jean, I'm getting back into REM, the music in Carmen, Leonard Cohen, an occasional dose of Brian Eno. ..
MoviesDon't laugh, but one movie you MUST see is Josie and the Pussycats--you probably missed it in theaters but it's one of those silly movies that's is actually smarter than it looks. The whole thing pokes fun at itself. Oh, and I'm totally addicted to Planet Earth. I swear, every time I watch it I think I'm never going to buy another plastic water bottle again (and then I get thirsty when I'm downtown and cave in). And: Hot Fuzz, Little Miss Sunshine, Shakespeare in Love (best date movie ever), Amelie (Who doesn't love Amelie?), Dr. Zhivago, Wonder Boys, Rushmore, Bottle Rocket (love OLD Luke Wilson--not the new chubby, frat-boy Luke Wilson), Office Space (a classic), and there are about 100 movies on my Netflix queue that I move around every day. ..
TelevisionMy favorite is the HBO show The Wire. The writing is so amazing and the actors really pull it off. I feel like I'm living in inner-city Baltimore when I watch it. I just wish the fifth season wasn't the last. What do you do when it's over??? Also can't get enough of Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order (I think I may have seen every single episode and I STILL find myself watching the re-runs. Does that make me totally lame?) ..
BooksMy latest favorites are The Post Birthday World by Lionel Shriver--she is such a good writer!--and Everybody Into the Pool by Beth Lisick--one of the funniest women I've ever read! .. Old-time classics I can't live without are: The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion, Safekeeping by Abigail Thomas, Liars & Saints and A Family Daughter by Maile Meloy, Self Help by Lorrie Moore, Are you There God? It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume, 1984 by George Orwell, The Awakening by Kate Chopin, Good Night Moon, Dubliners by James Joyce, Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, Heartburn by Nora Ephron, all of Henrik Ibsen's plays ..
HeroesGrant, my parents, my best friend Kathy, Carmindy, my canary Avey (he's really dumb but VERY cute and fluffy), people who ride Vespas in NYC traffic, Nora Ephron, Jennie, Annie, Katie, Connor, my friend Chrissy who can totally rock a pearl-necklace and not look too Upper Eastside, Georgia Nicholson, and if I've ever told you that you're my hero, I meant it. I don't say that to everyone. I just forgot to put it here. ..
