I was lying in bed putting off getting up by thinking of all the reasons why I love "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". I will enumerate them in this thread and you are welcome to join in. First of all, though, there are several parallels between TSLWM and BBM. One of them is that both stories debuted in The New Yorker! Here's a link to TSLWM by James Thurber from 1939!

More parallels. . .Walter Mitty's mom (played by Shirley MacLaine) is long suffering and Madonna-like, understanding him better than he understands himself. AND, she bakes cake! In this case, it's Clementine Cake and it appears in the North Sea between Greenland and Iceland as well as in Afghanistan! Most of the recipes I found were really weird but here is one that sounds good and is gluten-free: http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1016184-clementine-cake

Here's a cool interview with Ben Stiller and Kristin Wiig that appeared in a movie blog "Collider".
