Notes from Nora

Nora Ephron died this week. She was a journalist, writer and director of many of my favourite movies such as When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and Julie & Julia. She used words with incredible wit and heart like no other screenwriter and will be sorely missed. ListsofNote.com featured a post about two lists she created about what she would and wouldn't miss in life. You can read her lists here or check them out at the end of her book "I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections". Anyway, it got me wondering what my list would be. Here are my thoughts:

What I Won't Miss Doubt Queues The fact food that tastes good is bad for you Bank Statements Excel Arrogant, ignorance, intolerance Hayfever Text Messages Spiders Worrying about my appearance Bagpipes The smell of asphalt or cigarettes Bad customer service Not being able to find clothes that fit me Organised religion Leggings on women

What I WillMiss Making someone laugh Performing Old MGM movies Reading in bed Writing Chocolate Butter Visiting New York City My sisters The Theatre The diversity of friends Hugs Sleeping in Cooking for people Wandering around Sunday Roast The smell of books More laughing
