1) Spin the GTS Political Discussion Wheel and you get quotes from my beloved Jezebel (presented out of order):
General Bogardus: “One thing you can’t deny is that you’re the guest of a charming hostess.”
Aunt Belle: “I’m sorry, but this subject is an unwelcome one. Julie, as mistress of the house I’m sure you’ll agree.” Julie (disingenuously): “Why Aunt Belle, I wouldn’t dream of denyin’ any subject to my guests.”
Amy Dillard: “I’m sure Mr. Cantrell is capable of defending his own insinuations.”
2) I haven’t exactly “greeted the dawn with a breath of fire” today, but it’s going to be a good day today. As Luise Rainer memorably said in The Great Ziegfeld, “I mean it, I am determined!'“
3) In my box of stationery there are notecards I bought years ago that I know people would enjoy, but I enjoy them so much myself I’ll probably never send them.
