"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Monday Musings - Taylor Swift

Be who you are and say what you feel... Because those that matter.... don't mind... And those that mind... don't matter." -Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

Below this blog I have a video from Saturday Night Live this past weekend - Taylor Swift and her monologue. How in the world did this girl (she's 21 I think or younger) get to be so smart and so self confident? I think she has that quote down pat. What does she have that others don't?

Hedy Lamarr - Happy Birthday

Some little known facts from Wikipedia:

"Though known primarily for her acting , she also co-invented an early form of spread spectrum communications technology, a key to modern wireless communication.

On 10 August 1933 she married Friedrich Mandl, 13 years her senior. In her autobiography Ecstasy and Me, Lamarr described Mandl as an extremely controlling man who sometimes tried to keep her shut up in their mansion.

Lamarr also wrote that fascist dictators Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler both attended Mandl's grand parties. Lamarr wrote that in 1937 that she disguised herself as one of her maids and fled to Paris, where she obtained a divorce, then moved on to London. According to another version of the episode, she persuaded Mandl to allow her to attend a party wearing all her expensive jewelry, later drugged him with the help of her maid, and made her escape out of the country with the jewelry.

In 1965 Lamarr made headlines for being arrested for shoplifting; charges were eventually dropped. This situation played out again in 1991."

Stars are so interesting aren't they?

I may be wrong, but I think that TS is only around 19!
Amazing, huh?
What's so interesting about your famous people studies is that they are only human afterall.
We tend to forget that sometimes, being blinded by their fame.
Only human's not so bad!
Unless the alternative would be to be a much loved and or spoiled corgi!
That....would be excellant!
