Happy Birthday Mrs. Parker!

Happy Birthday Mrs. Parker! Born August 22, 1893, in Long Branch, New Jersey, Dorothy Parker became the quintessential New Yorker and one of the great wits of her time. A favourite writer of mine, I took her name as a pseudonym when I began this blog. She is one of the reasons why I wanted to live in New York and why I write even though I agree with her when she said, "I hate writing. I love having written." I will be celebrating tonight by attending the theatre and having a cocktail or two. I think she would approve.
