"the" Mrs. Astor

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

We had some fun over Mardi Gras with beads. In fact, both of us agree that we have fun any time we are together, a type of cement of love. No matter where we find ourselves, no matter how big the hangover, no matter the tense situation; we look at each other and find a way to laugh and--indeed--we are always laughing, trading jokes, and jabbing each other in the side.
Some of us, however, chose to use the beads to immitate one of great heroines of all times...


...a great classic who never deviated from her ideals, as iconoclastic as they were: Louise Brooks.

Louise Brooks was certainly one of a kind, led an extravagant life, but ended up in upper-state New York a little down and out. A friend in high school contacted her one day when he found where she lived and had an interesting correspondance with a long-forgotten legend. Get the book.

Oh, and you better leave Mr. Astor alone next week; I know how you like to Shanghai handsome men back to your sinister castle.

A friend of mine penned a biography on Louise Brooks and I will lend it to you the next time we are togther. According to my friend, her most immortal words to live by were, "if I ever bore you, it'll be with a knife."
