Goodbye, Norma Jeane ...

... though I never knew you at all.

Today would have been Marilyn Monroe's 80th birthday.

... and wouldn't she have hated it? I think she would have been the worst of all the Hollyweird ancient over-stretched faces. Better this way.

And I mean that in a respectful way. I adore her movies.

I agree that she would have hated it. The very thought of it is bizarre.

Liz Taylor, on the other hand, seems to be going strong (even if the jewellery is horrible). Especially now that she has worked out that blonde hair and black eyebrows a la Madonna circa 1985 is not a good look, especially not on a woman over 70, and has reverted to a relatively subdued version of her own original hair.

Well, she's still looking good as a global icon, anyway.

Hmm, she was quite clever in her own way, but personally, I've always thought she was a bit of a Tragic Wee-Wee.

She was always a little girl.
Her life ended at the right time.
