Fabulous Broads Highlights

Still flu-ridden (I think it's getting worse!) and braindead, so you get someone else's writing today. Last year's desk calendar: Quotes from Fabulous Broads. Here are the Top 7 that I pulled and straight-pinned to the wall:

The idea of strictly minding our own business is moldy rubbish. Who could be so selfish?
—journalist Myrtle Lillian Barker

Women are repeatedly accused of taking things personally. I cannot see any other honest way of taking them.
—writer Marya Mannes

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.
—writer Jennifer Unlimited

If I didn't think you meant so well, I'd feel like slapping your face.
—actress Mary Astor, in the film The Great Lie (1941)


Somebody once said we never know what is enough until we know what's more than enough.
—singer Billie Holiday

I may be a liar, a cheat, a drunk, and a tramp, but I've got principles.
—Joanna Cassidy as the university dean's wife, protesting her innocence,
in the film All-American Murder (1992)

    Two of my favorites:
    "I want women to be liberated and still be able to have a nice ass and shake it." Shirley MacLaine

    The next time a man suggests that "feminists have no sense of humor," offer up this pithy comment: "God did it on purpose so that we may love you men instead of laughing at you." Mrs. Patrick Campbell

  3. I"m sorry you have the flu, honey.

    Here's a quote to cheer you:

    "Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."~~Louisa May Alcott

  4. Sorry you're sick, but the bright side is this: You'll be immune for the rest of the winter. Sleep in a draft, make out with sick guys (if they're hott), go outside with wet feet - you can't be touched.

    How better to start the new year?
