I'm not sad like I am about Robin Williams -- she lived a long life, and I hope she's reunited now with Bogie. But of all the glamorous actresses of that age, I think Bacall's the most modern. I had the opportunity to meet her in 1997, and she was funny and charming. One cool dame, for sure.
@Julie the T My mother has told my dad he should read USA Today instead of the local paper on his laptop because she's convinced the local paper has given his computer viruses.
@brista128 I know! I didn't realize she didn't go any of the years she won.
I love Jane Wyman's in 1949 -- it looks really glamorous on her, and for the new ones, Marion Cotillard's dress in 2008 was so cool. You can really see when the stylists and entertainment press (who are you wearing, darling?) really entered the picture. No more "unknown" or "off the rack." Not as much fun for the viewer -- do yourself a favor and look up Sissy Spacek in 1981. Sweet baby Jesus, it's bad.
@sophia_h Ooh, sorry. Maybe on FB just post a daily message: Still in there.
If you're between stations, you could name your kid Orange Line (or whatever line you're on). May want to avoid connector buses.
@sophia_h I was just talking to a friend the other day about books that made us cry. For me, it was A Bridge to Terabithia and Where The Red Fern Grows. Oof, so sad.
@TheMnemosyne I loved A Little Princess too! Read it over and over.
@crane your neck -- Yes. I'm so glad to see someone else say The Fudge! I read Henry Huggins, Ramona & Beezus, A Wrinkle in Time, Blubber (omg, that one still haunts me).
@George Templeton Strong John Lennon referenced that in "Beautiful Boy"!
