My perfect Sunday:
Read in the morning. Bike ride somewhere, a lake maybe. Or just have tea and read the paper and talk about the world with someone smart. Go on a walk. Go to a bookstore. Visit an exhibition. Or just have tea and talk about the world with someone smart. Go to the movies. Make a movie. Bake some bread. Go hiking. Laugh a lot. Whatever it is, if I'm with someone fun, I am happy.
The movie I've watched the most times:
I've seen all the Bond movies many *many* times. Am I ashamed? I'm not! But I also like the good stuff. Just saw Heavenly Creatures and thought it was amazing.
