passed away on June 26, 2012. She was an
screenwriter, novelist, producer, director, blogger, and lover of life.
She wrote Silkwood, Sleepless in Seattle, Heartburn, & Julie and Julia. Watch this awesome scene from when HARRY MET SALLY
The world will be less beautiful without her in it.
In an extract
from her latest book published in the Guardian earlier this year, she listed
some of the things she would miss and not miss about life. So following Stasha\’s Listicles, I shall do the same
~~~THINGS I WILL
MISS WHEN I DIE
Coffee in the morning with real whip cream
Feeding the birds and squirrels before work
Blasting Madonna, Gaga, Nora Jones, & Mercy Me while
cleaning the house
Chocolate chip cookies
Polishing my toenails sky blue
My big fat Italian Family
My wild & crazy muse
Diet Coke w/ Lemon
Kick ass shoes
Sushi w/ gallons of ginger
The perfect shade of lipstick
Reading words that melt inside my mind
Hot baths w/ baby oil
The scent of Christmas
My Earth Angels
~~~WHAT I WILL NOT MISS WHEN I DIE
Losing that last 10 pounds
Stupid –idiotic- do- nothing- celebrities
Driving and never knowing where the hell I am going
Second-rate books I read just because I need to know the
Bossy people ( oops,
I’m one of them )
Driving to the cemetery
I WILL GAIN WHEN I DIE
Plus– all of the things I will miss above!
Dear Reader, what will you miss? Like me, do you believe in Heaven? What will you NOT MISS?
Ommmmygosh, one more thing…… I am craaaaaaaaaaaaaazy about THIS SONG!!
(& my fave. Listicle: Kathy
