My Abandonment Of The Blogosphere...

My actions have been totally unforgivable. I'm an outrage. I'm a disgrace. I don't deserve to be part of the blogosphere. I really don't.

But it had to be done, I assure you all! School is killing me a bit at the moment and...well, school is killing me a bit at the moment. I HAD NO CHOICE!

I promise you, dear blog, I will return. Find you, love you, marry you...I'm quoting Atonement again, aren't I? Scrap that. Um...basically, I will be blogging regularly again very soon.


I leave you with this, just because it has been stuck in my head for all of eternity. Enjoy!

Presenting Alfred Hitchcock!

My tribute to Alfie Hitch! Enjoy!

Michael is such a cool guy! Happy birthday!

Cool spectacles.

The Black Rose...

The Black Rose...

This is inspired by Erté's painting, The Black Rose, even though the roses in the set are quite obviously NOT black!

Quote Of The Day!

From the brilliant Etta James!

'My mother always told me, even if a song has been done a thousand times, you can still bring something of your own to it. I'd like to think I did that.'
For some reason every time I read an Etta quote I hear her sing it instead of say it...

Quote Of The Day (and Happy Belated Birthday, Jean Harlow)!

*pops up from behind sofa* I'm late again, aren't I? Oh dear. I can't keep up! I shall get back to blogging (properly!) at the weekend, I promise!

'I was not a born actress. No one knows it better than I. If I had any latent talent, I have had to work hard, listen carefully, do things over and over and then over again in order to bring it out.' 

Happy birthday, Jean!

I'm a wee bit in love with this photo!

RIP Jane Russell

No doubt she will be missed greatly. A brilliant quote from her, which I shall certainly use in future:

'The music these kids play nowadays, it`s nothing but screaming and pounding drums! You can`t hear the words, and that`s just as well, because the words stink!'
