Let's Fold Scarves

It's what I am.

<-- back to home


That's a good word.

I came across a Dorothy Parker quote I hadn't seen before - "This wasn't just plain terrible, this was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it." (does it date it if raisins are considered "fancy"?) - and I was reminded of a couple of my favourites:

Katharine Hepburn "ran the whole gamut of emotions from A to B."

News Item:
Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses

This is a great quote wrongly attributed to DP:

"If you want to know what the Lord God thinks of money, just look at those to whom he gives it." - it was Maurice Baring (though it should be noted that even after consulting tried and trusted sources, it is difficult to locate original sources of quotes).

My favourite poem when I was young and miserable was Résumé:

Razors pain you
Rivers are damp
Acids stain you
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful
Nooses give
Gas smells awful
You might as well live.
