Happy Birthday Marilyn

Happy Birthday Marilyn! 
Marilyn Monroe would have been 85 today.

I have been a Marilyn fan since I was a wee little Purl. She is simply irresistible. 
As a little girl I loved her for being a classic beauty who wasn't afraid to be playful and tomboyish. As a teenager I looked up to her for her talent as an actress, specifically as the unexpected comedienne. I won numerous dramatic competitions emulating Marilyn as I belted out her monologues. As I filled out into a curvy young woman I was grateful to the fallen starlette for having rocked those curves in such a classy way. 

"Ever notice how 'What the hell' is always the right answer?" 
— Marilyn Monroe

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be 
absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." 
— Marilyn Monroe

"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything."
— Marilyn Monroe

"I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it." 
  — Marilyn Monroe

Are you a Marilyn fan? Do you have a favorite Marilyn film, quote, picture?
