Just Finished: "I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman"

It become apparent about 5 pages in that I wasn't the demographic for this book. Ephron talks about sagging necks, plastic surgery and everything else about the aging process. Nevertheless, I continued to read because she also discussed her failed marriages, living in NYC, and food.

I found myself giggling about her views on owning a purse-expensive and they highlight how unorganized we are.  I totally agree!

I also discovered cookbook author Lee Bailey because of Ephron, and put one of his books on hold at the library.

Some of Ephron's nuggets of wisdom:

*Keep a journal

*Take more pictures

*There's no point in making pie crust from scratch

*"Oh, how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was 26. If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini, and don't take it off until you're 34."

*Eat, drink and be merry

*Consider the alternative. It could be worse.


Quick read and her essay on planning her own funeral was eerie.

RIP Nora Ephron
