Creative problem solving, chocolate mousse, making you laugh, road-tripping, forgetting where my keys are. Or my car.
Got obsessed with Mad-Men (the styling was just too snappy), and Tom Ford's Single Man before that (Colin Firth does sexy?).
How about "What the Bleep do we know" (the nerd comes out), or "Schenectady, New York" (I can be obscure, too). Any Almodovar but probably "Women on the Verge of Nervous Breakdown" is the best (so much red). Rushdie's "Satanic Verses" is amazing, as is "Midnight's Children" and since we're on magical realism "Love in a Time of Cholera" was great, but somehow I could never finish it. Milan Kundera writes so beautifully, as does Jeanette Winterson (I never understand a bloody word of hers but they flow so nicely).
