omg::::::::::::::::::Cupcake Envy is a like a kind of Heaven inside your mouth.
Best Mini Series: “I Claudius” will blow your silk skirt off into Timbuktu. I called in sick to watch the last episode. Naughty girl. Brilliant piece of work. I-Claudius is a C-C-C-lassic.“I Claudius”
Favorite Movie Star: Meryl Steep is a chameleon. A non-traditional beauty. A treasure. She can do anything, anything. If I had my own production studio…..For example, “OWN”….I’d cast her in every movie.
Julie & Julia, WOW.
The Blog That Transformed Me: 65 Red Roses

One of my Fave. Movie Scenes: I can never get enough Jack. This is one of his best roles. Firsrate. Superb. A Classic Jack Ass, Indeed.“Five Easy Pieces”
Greatest Film of All time: – “Spartacus”
For me, no other movie has surpassed Spartacus. In this scene Varinia shows Spartacus his baby for the first time. “He is Free,” She says. “He is Free.” I sob every time I watch this mindblowing, 1960 Classic.

Best Book of Poetry EVER: “Ariel,” by Sylvia Plath is overflowing with delicious, decedent symbolism & metaphor. She is the reason I became a writer. She is the reason I may be sane…….OrPerhaps, Not.
