"How To Be Thoroughly Modern" with Millie Lammoreaux


Set goals in life and in love...

"I plan everything I do. I figure out what it is I want and then I set out to do it. Like this apartment -- I've been decoratin' it ever since I moved in. And even if I fell in love with a guy and wanted to get married, I wouldn't move into his place. He'd have to move in with me. And even then I'd want to know everything there is to know about him. Includin' money and health."


Take pleasure in preparation...

"You can start by taking some of that cheese spread and squirtin' it in a circle on those Sociables. And then put an olive on top of each one. I made these once before and they were a real big hit."

"I'm famous for my dinner parties... We're havin' pigs in a blanket and chocolate puddin' tarts!"



Be the life of your own party...

"Do you guys know how to play Scrabble? It's a real good game - you can learn a lot of new words. My roommate's got this boyfriend who's really good at it. He knows some words I've never even heard of before. "Orator." It's in the dictionary alright. I think it's some kind of, oh, professional talker or somethin'. But the most unusual one was "zebus." You know what zebus are? The humps on a camel's back. I didn't like the guy I was with too much, though. All he wanted to do was make up dirty words. We weren't gonna play that way."

Three Women. Now there's a fever dream of a movie. Totally amazing. I love Shelly in this movie. She's really pretty in it.

This is a great blog post!

Before seeing this movie I didn't know what to make of her, but after this I was forever a fan of Shelley Duvall. She's so unique and so perfect, even moreso considering much of her dialogue was her own creation.
