thoughts on: I Remember Nothing

I Remember Nothing: and Other ReflectionsI Remember Nothing: and Other Reflections by Nora Ephron

Nora Ephron is funny.  And real.  She admits that she met Eleanor Roosevelt, but remembers getting lost en route better than she remembers the former first lady; that her feelings were hurt when a friend asked her to bring mashed potatoes instead of dessert to their Christmas dinner; that she is addicted to Scrabble Blitz; and that she is old - not just older, but old.

This slim collection of essays feature recollections, and lack of recollections, little rants about eggs whites and teflon, and what it feels like to look back with both fondness and regrets.
