Thought for the Weekend - Marilyn Monroe

I'm in the middle of reading 'Marilyn Monroe - The Personal Archives' at the moment, so I guess it is of no surprise that Marilyn gets the ticket this week. 

Marilyn was a movie icon that has always intrigued me.  In fact one of the first essays of any substance that I remember writing as a teenager, was about Marilyn Monroe, and how people are seldom what they seem.

'I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.'
— Marilyn Monroe


  1. I drew a portrait of her once. I have found her intriguing too. Love her in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", but the whole way through most of her films, I feel a sense of sadness at how she was forced into those "dumb blonde" roles.

  2. 'It takes a smart brunette to play a dumb blonde', another quote from Marilyn!

  3. Love both quotes. Laughed at the name of your blog. Shouldn't it be "121 socks" as they never match up evenly after a washing!
