Hildy, His Girl Friday, work icon

GIP!

Yes, it's an inspirational new icon. Whenever I am feeling lazy and inarticulate and I have to ring a surly editor or make some random phone calls asking people to help with an article I'm writing, I think "just imagine you're Rosalind Russell in His Girl Friday". And it kind of works. Except, of course, I don't have the fabulous hats or the gorgeous suits or the supercool typewriter or the sassy banter with my fellow newspapermenpeople or the sexual chemistry with Cary Grant. But still, it's a start.
