- Making new friends over coffee.
- Being able to write two pages of fiction in the middle of the work day, because writing is now my job.
- Unexpectedly running into old friends over coffee.

(*) Brad thought there were too many different animation styles, but I thought it fit perfectly with the "scrap book" nature of the film. I loved that, although the film is clearly computer animated, any given frame looks like it was hand-painted or hand-drawn. The animated water-colors particularly impressed me.
