yesterday was talula's fourth birthday,
so we celebrated with cat treats and tunafish.
and while it was an altogether happy day,
it was also sad to lose a much-loved actress, elizabeth taylor.
i must admit, besides the old version of little women (1949),
and the white diamonds commercial, which i sometimes like to
re-enact- pretending to remove my diamond earrings and hand
them off to a table-full of handsome gamblers, while saying,
"these have always brought me luck--"
i don't know much about this truly remarkable lady.
and so, better late than never, i watched
cat on a hot tin roof (1958) this evening and loved it.
as my friend, sarah says, "swoon.." they really don't
make dramas like they used to-- or actresses,
for that matter.
