FAVORITE THING #2: Sci-fi movies. For those of you who scoff at the idea of Star Trek, let me present to you Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (whose title, I might add, is an allusion to Hamlet's "To be, or not to be" monologue; in Hamlet, "the undiscovered country" is death; in Star Trek, it's the future). This movie really is an allegory of Cold War politics, but it's so much more than that. It addresses our natural racist inclinations and fear of annihilation--so apt today. (I just saw 2012 and The Road--it seems like Hollywood isn't letting up on the apocalyptic theme.)
FAVORITE THING #3: Brunch. Let's face it. I'm a brunch junkie. These delectable blueberry pancakes and the french toast in the next picture are both from Zoe, a restaurant in Soho.
FAVORITE THING #4: Korres. I'm really picky about lotions (I have extremely dry skin), and Korres' Jasmine (or Guava) body butter is insanely rich, fragrant, and healing. I'm also addicted to their shower gel and lip balm.
FAVORITE THING #5: Murad. While we're on the subject of beauty products, let me introduce you to Murad's Clarifying Cleanser. Great for people who have mild to severe acne.
