Dirty Courage

I don’t care who you are— this is AMAZING.

I don’t know if some of you have been to these live reads at LACMA, where a classic film is read live on stage by actors who just sit and read the script. We did one recently of American Pie, but we reversed the gender roles. All the women played men; all the men played women. And it was so fascinating to be a part of this because, as the women took on these central roles — they had all the good lines, they had all the good laughs, all the great moments — the men who joined us to sit on stage started squirming rather uncomfortably and got really bored because they weren’t used to being the supporting cast.

It was fascinating to feel their discomfort [and] to discuss it with them afterward, when they said, “It’s boring to play the girl role!” And I said, “Yeah. Yeah. You think? Welcome to our world!

I present you with the best thing you’ll ever read. Enjoy! "Missy is SO thoughtful", she purred. "Just the other day she saw an ad in the paper for some sheets that cost $780 - imagine! $780! - so she clipped it out and sent it to me." "Yeah," said Missy. "Can you imagine trying to make love on $800 sheets?" Shirley dropped a forkful of salad "Missy!" Edward roared. "Edward, Shirley is such a prude!" said Stanwyck with a throaty chuckle. "How can you put up with her?" "But I’m serious," Stanwyck persisted, her eyes twinkling merrily. "I can’t imagine anything worse than trying to make love on $800 sheets. Talk about your mental hang-up! Talk about your sexual inhibitions." "No one is talking about it except you!" said Shirley. "Eat your dover sole." "Most men have enough trouble already without the added pressure of $800 sheets!" said Stanwyck, unable to resist a parting shot.

Art Nouveau jewelry is 98% flowers, peacocks, and dragonflies, so I am especially in love with this piece for not following trends.
