"It's good to play all types of personalities. Embracing individuality is one of the greatest things you can do."

Most people my age remember the first time they saw Brittany Murphy. She had brown hair, a weird accent, was very short, and awkward in her role as Tai in Clueless in 1995. The next movie I saw her in was the white-trash re-imagining of Little Red Riding Hood, Freeway. Murphy was a psychotic teenager in a juvenile facility with Reese Witherspoon's character, Vanessa. She was creepy and pathetic as Rhonda, who befriends Vanessa and continuously attempts to make out with her. (If you haven't watched Freeway, and you love off-kilter and raunchy humor, YOU MUST WATCH IT).

"God forbid you do anything individual or go against the fad. But I did."

What can be said about the iconic Elizabeth Taylor that hasn't already? She began her career at the age of 9 and was a lead actress by 12. Over the course of her life, she would win 2 Academy Awards, marry several times, have children, and create her own perfumes.

"Compassion is the foundation of everything positive, everything good."

Rue McClanahan needs no introduction to be recognized, either as a beautiful woman or a talented actress and humanitarian. Rue worked as a file clerk when she moved to New York. She began acting in 1957 in off-Broadway productions before hitting the Great White Way in 1969's production of Jimmy Shine alongside Dustin Hoffman.

Apologies For Lack of Updates

When I started this blog, I did it because a friend had the male version already going. Also, when I started this, I knew next to nothing about blogging. I didn't check pageviews or traffic sources or ANYTHING. I decided to focus on my other blog, Pinky McLadybits Has A Blog , because I thought more people were reading it. I was so very, very wrong. Wrong by about 11,000X.

So, I'll be posting here again more often. Clearly, someone is reading whether they comment or not, so I thought I'd give them something new to read. A sincere thank you from a gal who didn't think anyone would read her ramblings.
