@ossobuco,
I loved many of her movies. She also had a great sense of humor. RIP

I loved her wit and the self-deprecation that you didn't notice until you had already laughed.
The last paragraph of the obit reads:
Quote:
Ms. Ephron’s collection “I Remember Nothing” concludes with two lists, one of things she says she won’t miss and one of things she will. Among the “won’t miss” items are dry skin, Clarence Thomas, the sound of the vacuum cleaner, and panels on “Women in Film.” The other list, of the things she will miss, begins with “my kids” and “Nick” and ends this way:

“Taking a bath

Coming over the bridge to Manhattan

Pie.”

@Joe Nation,
I know people who knew her, didn't know her myself. I didn't even see the movies. I know her from various writings in magazines and papers and a blog over the years, and I'll miss catching up on what she thinks next.

Some quotes re her death:

@ossobuco,
I did not know her name and I am ignorant of her writing and movies. Reading about her now, I wish I had known.

@ossobuco,
I've saved a few more items about Nora. You can tell I liked her.
Among other things, she was almost exactly my age, so shared times.

Here's one, but in particular the link at the end to an interview of her in Seattle that seems recent -
http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/hendrikhertzberg/2012/06/nora-ephron-thirtysomething.html

The interview link:



You could take her for spoiled plus luck., which I suppose she did too as she talked about it, plus a kind of programming she describes herself. I take her for much more than the whole of that..
