Reading my People Magazine…the one with Douchy McAttentionWhore on the cover. I shan’t mention his name because that is what he wants!! Anyway, I came upon the book review section and discovered “The Richard Burton Diaries“…I read “Furious Love” a few years ago and have found their love/hate/boozefest story fascinating. The book covers more than just his years and marriage(s) with Elizabeth Taylor BUT that’s the most interesting part! He wrote of his passionate love for her:
“E is my only ism,” Burton writes. “Elizabethism.” While she was away, he noted, “I miss her like food.” He calls Taylor “an eternal one-night stand” and “beautiful beyond the dreams of pornography.” He declares, “She is a prospectus that can never be entirely cataloged, an almanac for Poor Richard.”
It left me longing for the days of love letters and being courted. (yes, all fantasies lol) What I have instead is from the Frug, which I received in this uber romantic text messages:
And later, this…
A beautifully organized “pantry”…be still my heart. *rolls eyes*
Sure, Richard Burton could write this of his wife:
“I have been inordinately lucky all my life, but the greatest luck of all has been Elizabeth. She has turned me into a moral man, but not a prig, she is a wildly exciting lover-mistress, she is shy and witty, she is nobody’s fool, she is a brilliant actress, she is beautiful beyond the dreams of pornography, she can be arrogant and willful, she is clement and loving, Dulcis Imperatrix, she is Sunday’s child, she can tolerate my impossibilities and my drunkenness, she is an ache in the stomach when I am away from her, and she loves me!
…but could he organize a pantry on a sunny Saturday afternoon??? Hmm.
