“Bitch, please; it’s Friday.” Elaine Stritch

As Elaine Stritch once sang (thanks, Sir Sondheim):

“And here’s to the girls who just watch–
Aren’t they the best?
When they get depressed,
It’s a bottle of Scotch,
Plus a little jest.
Another chance to disapprove,
Another brilliant zinger,
Another reason not to move,
Another vodka stinger.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!
I’ll drink to that.”

Such theatrical brilliance. Such truth of intention. Such raw emotion. Such intensity. Such indefatigable determination to live every moment without compromise. Elaine Stritch. Icon. Idol. One of a kind.
