Day of Doris



It's her 88th, and I feel the need to give her some much deserved love.

After all, she was an early role model of mine.
Oh, how many afternoons did I find myself watching an afternoon matinee of "Pillow Talk" on PBS....
dreaming of the day I'd become a a virginal interior decorator with a sexy husky voice....
with Rock Hudson lusting after me.

Well, I got the virginal part right at least.

 Anyway if you love her too, here's a  wonderful npr interview with the wonderful Doris by the wonderful Terry Gross (via the wonderful Felix)

And if you're too lazy to listen to that, just listen to this:

I wish she would have stayed in movies, but a lady knows when to step aside and protect her image. More importantly, how many of us are lucky enough to have enough of everything that we can spend 40 years doing what we love like Doris dis in advocating for pets?

Happy birthday DD!

It is hard to imagine her anything but how she looks in Pillow Talk.
