That we had a perfect week in Key West with our oldest friends and that we still find things to talk about 24-7. (Books, movies, plays, politics, kids, common friends, our past). Hope you each have friends like this.
That Jordan Peele made such a smart, funny, scary movie: GET OUT. The more I thought about it, the better it got. We saw it in a theater full of 20- somethings on a Tuesday night.
That the team from LaLa Land showed such class in realizing MOONLIGHT had won and immediately stepping aside.
That my grandson can draw a picture like this one at age 10. I couldn't do it now. He can also skate like the wind.
That I enjoyed two books on my trip, SISTERLAND by Curtis Sittenfeld and THE ICE BENEATH HER by Camilla Grebe (Swedish). Although I have to say I figured the second one out halfway through much to Phil's consternation. And that is my gripe with books that depend too heavily on whodunit. If you figure it out, the incentive to finish it nosedives. Still a good story.
That GIRLS' Lena Dunham managed to write such a smart episode of GIRLS (American Bitch). Matthew Rhys made the perfect seductor and bravely she allowed her character to fall into it. Only in the last seconds does it feel like a TV episode and not a one-act play. Like her or not, like GIRLS or not, she is brilliant.
