‘In March…’ or as it really turned out ‘In April 2012…’

‘In March…’

I originally posted this on August 25, 2009. I probably wouldn’t have noticed it again had I not been working on migrating and collating old blogs (tumblr/WP) onto this site.

Earlier this year, I bought a copy of a book with this cover. I don’t know if my subconscious remembered, but it was certainly the neatest cover choice for my copy of ‘If You Want to Write’ by Brenda Ueland. Funny how things happen.

Lauren Bacall on Twilight

“Yes, I saw Twilight – my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, ‘Now that’s a vampire film!’ And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!”
