seven things to be happy about


  1. Finishing the structural outline of my screenplay! Wahoo! Took over a month. Now I just have to write the damn thing.
  2. Calling my mom on Sunday night only to have her rush me off the phone to watch “Game of Thorns.” Mom, it’s “Thrones.”
  3. Listening to my first book on tape– Tough Shit by Kevin Smith. My lovely friend Tracy sent it to inspire me and keep a fire under my butt. It’s working!
  4. My Beverly Hills Public Library library card. I’m trying to save money and books are my biggest splurge. First items checked out: Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri, Where I’m Calling FromĀ by Raymond Carver, and Collected Stories by Anton Chekhov.
  5. Early evening walks through Larchmont Village.
  6. Waking up without a hangover. Hey, it’s the little things.
  7. My 11m Saturday night trip to the 24 hour Von’s Grocery Store. Items purchased: one honeydew, one plum, one bag of Terra Sweet Potato Chips.
