2. Melanie Lynskey's scene in Away We Go. The movie was uneven, but her scene was pretty amazing. (If your mom loves "Two and a Half Men," you may know her as the neighbor, Rose. But she was also in Heavenly Creatures with Kate Winslet! I just learned/realized that that's the same person.)
3. Colors. Colors? Yeah . . . colors.
4. Friends on the phone bein' friendly.
5. All the frowning people in that grocery store on 68th Street who reminded me what it's like to be around a bunch of frowning rich people. Unfortunate. Kind of funny.
Bonus: Iced coffee.
