Watching: Chef, etc.

I've seen plenty of films that made me want to feast like a hog, but Chef is one of very few that made me want to learn how to cook. It's also stress-free, sunny, and delightful, and there's much to be said for actors and characters you simply enjoy spending time with.

See also: About Time, which I originally dismissed because the plot sounds très high concept and insufferable. Turns out it's a low-key familial goddamn love story!

Also, to read: this Frank Rich interview with Chris Rock (which had the double bonus of restoring my faith in New York magazine) and a lovely piece at The Toast on the very real joys of Disney World.
