Before I came to New York, I only had a few pictures of the city in my mind. And you know 'That Girl?' Marlo Thomas jumping with her hat? I always loved that, and I wondered what that double street she crosses is. And it's Park Avenue! And that's what I can see out my window.
I love lamps. I can't stand overhead lighting. I have to have everything on a dimmer.
Every time I go to the market, Andy says, 'Don't forget the Triscuits!'
