SEE 50/50. I saw this movie tonight and it was incredibly well done. Everyone has someone close to them whose been affected by cancer, yet it's not a common subject in movies (probably because the topic can be so depressing). This movie told a story that blended comedy and the seriousness of cancer. One minute you were laughing and the next minute you were crying. Plus, the cast was absolute perfection. Don't miss this one!
READ Bossypants. I don't know what took me so long to finally read this book but once I started it, I finished it within 24 hours. I've never laughed out-loud this much from a book, which discusses Tina Fey's childhood in Pittsburgh, job at Second City, and success at SNL and 30 Rock. This is perfect to pick up if you've just finished a heavy read.
EAT at Kingsbury Street Cafe (that is if you live in Chicago). I went here with a friend for brunch the other day and I swear I felt like we walked into a cafe in L.A. Aside from everything on the menu being fresh and healthy, the atmosphere was light and cozy. I'm still craving the cheddar herb scone with eggs and potatoes, as well as the breakfast quinoa with walnuts and cranberries. Yum!
