Nine of the Best Dorothy Parker Quotes

I've been putting this off since March. So let's do this! I'm on vacation and that means the UC comes first for a few days. And family, I think.

shut up Norman Rockwell.  you sassy bastard.

Getting back to the task at hand, has there been anyone as vitriolic as Dorothy Parker? No. Never, and never again. Pippa Middleton can only dream of this!


MY HERO. and you know, she did a lot for civil rights as well!

Miss Parker is perhaps best remembered for her wit. I say that like I know her. Ha! She died in 1967 and I was born in 1988 so you do the math, buster. 

Anyway, without further adieu, I present to you....


9.) If all the girls who attended the Yale prom were laid end to end, I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

I believe this happened several times.

8.) She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B. - about Katharine Hepburn

7.) I don't care what is written about me so long as it isn't true.

Someday, the Useless Critic will be a profitable enterprise. Someday. Oh screw it.

6.) You can lead a whore to culture, but you can't make her think.

I have tried several times. I'm always like, "Lelaine, you really should read more Beckett." And she's all like "I have another STD Britt."

5.) That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.

I want mine to say "BRB."

4.) Too fucking busy, and vice versa.

My answering machine message.

3.) Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses.

Not true?
2.)  That woman speaks eighteen languages, and can't say No in any of them.

Well I wouldn't know what THAT'S like....

1.) This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.

I have felt this way about several books in my lifetime.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso
