Hannah sits, uncomfortably, for an interview for a freelance gig with a website called jazzhate.com. The blonde interviewer suggests she write about a threesome, or doing cocaine, and then points to a sign on the wall indicating where your comfort zone is (outside the circle), to which Hannah responds, "Uh huh. Okay. " The girls are having a yard sale (which in Brooklyn is more of a street sale) and Hannah asks Marnie where she could actually procure said cocaine. Answer: Laird, her weird junkie neighbor.

From Liz Atwood: Call me a party-pooper, but I make it a habit never to shop on Black Friday. It isn't so much that I hate the crowds, but that I almost never know what I want to buy for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. I can never understand those folks who do their Christmas shopping in the summer and have it all wrapped by Halloween. I have only started to think about what I want to buy. I was scouring the websites to find out the hot toys for tweens this year and I'm reminded of the old saying "There's nothing new under the sun. " It seems the Easy Bake Oven, which has been around since I was a kid, is still popular.
