  1. Hello everybody!!,

    I have to say that Wodehouse is one of my favourite writers, he’s SO funny, there is madness in his books!!!. Bette, you have such a good taste!!!. But I haven’t read any of Nabokov’s classics, neither “A Conferency of Dunces”, they could be good options to read for this summer…., hot, sweaty summer…..

    Love,

    Eze.

  2. Hey, this is great, i thought that was her old motto?
    Its still a good one though its something i live by, lol
    🙂

  3. I loved A Confederacy of Dunces and I think her favorite Nabakov book was Pale Fire – Killer Of Butterflies….something like that.

    Eze…what’s your favorite Wodehouse book….????

    Love, D

  4. If things keep going the way they do I can supply her with the empty house and a book! 🙁

    Crystal: You coming to my birthday party?????

  5. I’ve decided to turn 45 and start over…I didn’t like how my 50’s started out and I can pass for 45…so sue me. Wish you were here too Cris. I’ll drink a drink for you….!!!!

    Love, Don

    HOLD UP HERE!!
    Excuse me! but where is MY invite mister??? Dont make me drive up there and sing in person D!! You know I love the attention and I have no problem taking it away from you 😛 lol 😉 and my fave Nabokov book is LOLITA ( of course it so closely follows my early years, LMAO 😛 )
    I was surprised and very happy to see she did the Proust questionnaire. I am always interested to see who says what. It is like the Questions at the end of Inside the Actor’s Studio. 🙂
    love ya bunches D!

  7. Andy – if I knew you wanted to be bored to death and drive 12 hours or more to get here I would have invited you….:-)

    Love, D

  8. Hi Don,

    I have read several Wodehouse books translated to Spanish, and one of the books I remenber that I couldn’t stop laughing was “Uncle Fred in the Springtime”. You know, the people in the stories, they’re so crazy and so funny!!!, and the situations are histerical!!!. Wodehouse creates his own world.

    I will try to read the book you say was Bette’s Navakov fovourite, thanks for the information!!!.

    Don, When is your birthday?, I though you were ageless, or timeless, like Bette and Barbra…… (-;

    Love,

    Eze.

  9. My birthday is July 14…I am ageless and timeless, but unfortunately not weightless, if you get my drifteroo… so celebrate it however you like….

    I’ll check out that Wodehouse book….

    Love, Don

  10. That is too funny that Bette loves Nabokov! The two things I’m (a little) obsessed with are Bette and Nabokov (I wrote my Master-paper on him) and I never would have thought that my two obsessions have a connection… If only I could find out what Sigmund Freud would have to say to this… Anyway: Pale Fire is quite possibly the best book ever written in English and, Mister D; It has nothing two do with the fact that Nabokov was fascinated by butterflies (and not so much with the killing, by the way: he was fascinated that no matter how similar they look, they are always different: he wanted to teach us how to really see things and appreciate their differences…) Thanks for posting it!

  11. Prince: I would love to read your report. I guess I’ll read that book, too. It’s so cool there was a connection….

    Love, D

    PS: Jamie – Cancer’s rule!!!!!

    ~g I’d love to hear what you thought of the show and the pics, too…
