    For You, From One Who's Tried It

    Résumé Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give; Gas smells awful; You might as well live.  - by the incomparable Mrs. Dorothy Parker Thanks, Dottie!

    Time Doth Flit

    Dorothy Parker: One word really only does justice to sum her up and that's stunning. I'm not, so wouldn't it be fantastic to be more like her?

    Indian Summer

    In youth, it was a way I had To do my best to please, And change, with every passing lad, To suit his theories. But now I know the things I know, And do the things I do; And if you do not like me so, To hell, my love, with you!
