A wise woman, well dressed



Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting.

Katharine Hepburn











I spent my corporate life trying to dress like her. ("Power Hepburn", I called it.) I just stumbled across this piece of brilliant Kate today. I like it even better than all those man-cut trousers I gave up with the mahogany desk.

    I have had an idea for a wild garden while I came from my Ecology exam and I watched poppies along the road. Perhaps I will to collect someone!

  • Classy, yet feisty! Love her!

    Two trivia gems from IMDB.com:

    "Did all her own stunts because the stunt woman never stood up straight enough."

    "Walked around the studio in her underwear in the early 1930s when the costume department stole her slacks from her dressing room. She refused to put anything else on until they were returned."

    Back to my "interesting" work now... (I think Katharine would tell me I could do better!)
