Currently (re) reading: “Me” by Katharine Hepburn


This is such an engaging memoir. Ms. Hepburn wrote it in a completely conversational style as if she’s actually talking to the reader. It’s jam-packed with stories and insights about key early Hollywood players like Louis B. Mayer, Judy Garland, Cary Grant, as well as Hepburn’s former beau Howard Hughes and, of course, her beloved Spencer Tracy.

If you’re ever hankering for a bit of Hepburn’s behind-the-scenes personality, you should start with Me. Unless you’ve already read it. Have you?

A quick round-up

Here are stories I found interesting and you might, too:

* Wall Street Journal piece on the chemicals in household cleaners.

* Showtime wisely passes on insulting, asinine L-Word spinoff.

* I feel sorry for this Graffiti Girl who’s facing serious hard time. Am I a sap?

* Kooky Cloris Leachman and Gene Hackman had “epic sex”? Weird.

* She’s gonna play Judy Garland?!

* Artist Justine Lai paints realist portraits of herself having sex with U.S. presidents.

* Wow, talk about old meets new: Modernist architect Frank Gehry has been picked to design an Eisenhower monument in D.C.
