As Good as It Gets

Edouard Manet, Le Dejeuner sur L'Herbe, 1863
Carol Connelly: “OK, we all have these terrible stories to get over, and you...”
Melvin Udall: “It’s not true. Some of us have great stories, pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just no one in this car. But, a lot of people, that’s their story: good times, noodle salad. What makes it so hard is not that you had it bad, but that you’re that pissed that so many others had it good.”

— As Good as It Gets

Here’s wishing all of you lots of noodle salad in 2012.

Happy New Year.
