Back with pictures!

Dear friends.
Writing to you is a totally exhausted woman, starting to resemble a mental breakdown with all these cardboard boxes, paper bags, empty beer cans and chaos around her - but at least I'm situated at our new downtown place with a comfortable chair on the balcony to prepare for many cigarette breaks. (Believe me, they're needed!)
And our bed will arrive first tomorrow morning. Three nights with mee sleeping on the thinnest sofa ever existed, and my fiancée on an inflatable matress. (But since we're used to sharing a 110 cm wide bed, the new 160 cm will be considered as real luxuary!)

I'm still too confused and tired to have any blog inspiration today, but I felt that I wanted to scramble down some words here anyway. I thought that I could share pictures of celebreties doing all that I want to do now in this mess - drinking.

And regarding my upcoming, cool DVD collection special: it will come up in a month or so, when I have been able to order the shelves for them. (Lack of money is such a bitch.) I was thinking about filming it and narrate, instead of just putting up some photos. What do you think of that idea?

Kate Gabrielle said...

Fantastic pictures!! Definitely film it - that will be so neat :)

Lolita said...

Haha, that gif is lovely!

Bardot's body is simply amazing on that photo, DeHavilland looks so cool (totally unlike the innocent self she used to be in the pictures!) and Die Asta has probably filled her glass with Jägermeister!

Kate Gabrielle:
Thank you! Okay, then it's settled: I'll film and narrate my DVD collection!

Meredith said...

Nadine said...

Great post! I agree, my favorite photo is the one of Olivia de Havilland. Tres sophisticated.


Millie said...

Love the photos!

Ever since you did that "stars in front of mirrors" post a while ago, I always think of you when I see a new mirror picture -- I was looking for Susan Hayward photos just now and found this one:

It seems like there are so many, someone could start a blog just about movie stars and mirrors!

Lolita said...

It's easy to understand why so many people like that DeHavilland shot - she looks so cool, comfortable and femme fatale, a look she doesn't have in many of her films!

Thank you!

Great! Me too ;)

Kate Gabrielle:
Thank you! I have saved up quite a few more mirror pictures after that post I did! I'm thinking about an encore ;)

In the photo of "Clark Gable, Van Heflin, Gary Cooper and James Stewart"...are you SURE that's really James Stewart on the right? It sure doesn't look like him to me, although I've seen this picture posted many times and places online, always with the exact same caption...
