Calling my grandmother every week.
Making Passover desserts.
Writing thank-you notes.
Always getting the best spot at the 9:30 Club (my secret, for now…).
Favorite plays I reread constantly: Arcadia (and most Stoppard, actually), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Twelfth Night, Pericles, and Mourning Becomes Electra.
Movies, in rough order of greatness: Three Colors: Red, The Double Life of Veronique, Heathers, Blue Velvet, The English Patient, Dangerous Liaisons, Annie Hall, Howards End, All About Eve, Thelma & Louise, Almost Famous, Melancholia, Don’t Look Now, Broadcast News, Titus, Caché , The Wings of the Dove, and Metropolitan.
Favorite chocolatiers include Bernachon, Jean-Charles Rochoux, Jacques Genin, and Reine Astrid. (That’s what you meant by food, right?)
Books – keep getting sidetracked as I make my way through the new Murakami, the Sontag diaries, and a tall stack of new Pevear/Volokhonsky translations of the Russian classics.
A maxed-out iPod.
A future trip in the works.
DC’s lack of voting rights.
Why The New Yorker insists on using the diaeresis.
