Fare-Thee-Well Dame Elizabeth Taylor
This week, the passing of Liz Taylor bought back memories of rainy afternoons spent reclining on my sofa, watching 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, - my favourite of her movies, sassy and sizzling, as all good siren's should be. I mean, who wouldn't act like a pent up cat, having to sit opposite Mr Dreamboat himself, aka Paul Newman?
Another thought crossed my mind, -who would replace her? Do we even make stars the way we used to? These days, we have overnight sensations who are like, 12 years old, cue-that-Bieber- kid...what? He's like, 17? Still...you know what I mean, those kids, who just keep popping up. 'Pop-up' acts. Very temporary. My attempts to ponder this question were futile, it's a no-brainer, the only figure who popped into my tiny grey matter, was the stylish Julianne Moore, always, always looking old school glam...thanks to good genes, and her BFF Mr Tom Ford. Anyway, I digress - what I wanted to say was this...
Fare-Thee-Well Dame Elizabeth Taylor! Thank you, for being a wonderful supporter of charity, and for speaking your mind, you great big fabulous Hollywood-Icon-of-Yesteryear!

A/N: Secretly, I'm hoping Ms Taylor is reunited with Mr Burton. They belong together. That is all.
How are you all? This week has been super busy, I've been editing, re-writing, re-reading. Tomorrow, I shall be up early writing as I'm off to see a play in the evening with a dear old friend - very excited about that. Cocktails at the ready! How about you? How's your writing project, and what's going down in your neck of the woods?
Have a fabulous friday and a wonderful weekend!
