What fresh hell?



This is now I now plan to start answering my phone.

An item I loathe with a passionate intensity.

In my previous life I don’t wish to have been Cleopatra or Joan of Arc.

I rather like snakes and I’d make a terrible martyr.

I’d happily settle for Dorothy Parker.

When I need a particularly cutting insult, I turn to her.

I adore her dry wit and aspire to have a tongue half as sharp as hers.

These are some of my favorite Parkerisms.

I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.
