"BREVITY IS THE SOUL OF LINGERIE" ~ We heard Dorothy Parker say . . .
"Brevity is the Soul of Lingerie"
Dorothy Parker flounced
to Absolutely*Kate's favourite classy dames . . .
Gathered they were, to wax eloquent and often ~
of feminine wit and wisdom
and sultry secrets through their ages
Calling Femme Authors
for brilliant Brevities on ~
In quip-stylistics of Dorothy Parker, Mae West,
Zelda Fitzgerald, (to name a few, but YOU have your faves too),
or memorable movie-speak, lyric-croon,
hunk of haiku, phrase o'prose, or even
proclamations your Mother bade you . . .
We wish what you can dish ~
Make it snippets and blurbs,
womanly thoughts and desires,
cool dame classic one-liners, or
sweet nothings which pack passion -
to whisper soft or yelp "ZOWIE!" in the night.
Sign up in THE SALON
along the right wall.
We'll send you the full info.
You'll choose your own topics.
And the universe shall encourage
your good goddess moxie mind
to let loose and fly fancy free.
The beguine of this fun
has just begun.
and the imagined spirits of ~
Dorothy Parker, Mae West, Zelda Fitzgerald,
Wilma Flinstone, Jane Jetson, Beaver Cleaver's mother June, Richie Cunningham's mom Marion, Franny of Franny & Zooey, Katie Scarlett O'Hara, Lucy Magillicutty Ricardo, Ethel Mertz, Thelma, Louise
. . . yeah, you get the picture.
Remember to be frightened or enchanted at Lily Childs' dark presentation of the annual, well-acclaimed FEMME FATALES, goin' on and spinnin' round all the days that are February.
Do Enjoy. Tell Lily's gals, "Absolutely*Kate sent me!" ... then watch for my own taunting tale to pop up ... maybe, just after mid-month (Shhhhh) -- you'll see.
