1. Buckets of cornflowers and sweet williams and dahlias at the Farmers' Market.
2. Scaling a fish for the first time - don't the scales get everywhere!
3. Sin City, which is a horribly violent film, but really intriguingly shot in B&W but with little slashes of colour as needed - red shoes, golden hair, yellow bastard, turquoise car. It has three stories that touch each other and then veer apart. And it makes you care about nasty, nasty men, too.
