  •  You're my new idol. (none)
    I hope I'm half as cool when I'm 71.

    And on your Parker sig...I fell in love with Jennifer Jason Leigh playing her in Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle. One of my favorite Parkerisms was her response to a reporter who asked her what she wanted on her tombstone. She said, "What a morbid question. I think you've won my heart."

    •  Thanks for noticing Dorothy Parker. (none)
      She was great, and I fell in love with her work when I was in college in the early 1950s. My favorite one-liner of all time, though, is actually from Groucho Marx, but it doesn't work to use it here:

      Margaret Dumont, on the dock, about to board the steamship, looks at the luggage and asks Groucho, "Well, do you have everything?"

      Groucho: "Nobody's ever complained."

      "That story is not worth the paper it's rotten on."--Dorothy Parker
