    I think she's a fantastic actress with a huge take-no-prisoners presence who knows how to sell a song too.

    And I'd love to get plastered with her.

    I saw her in "A Little Night Music" in October.........she was FAB.

    AND Max, you'll be drinking alone.......Elaine stopped drinking years ago.

    Saw her in Company in 1971 (4 times)... Fantastic!
    Saw her in her one-woman show, "At Liberty" a few years ago. Brilliant!
    Saw her in "Night Music" last year. Sublime!

    How can anyone possibly hate Elaine Stritch? She's the cat's pajamas in my book.

    She cracked me up in the 2000 movie "Screwed." The denture bit was a hoot.

    Loved her as Dyan Cannon's mother in "Out to Sea", and her recent turn on "30 Rock" as Alec Baldwin's mother was hilarious.

    I'm shocked she's still alive! I thought that she was older than my grandparents when I was a kid.

    Game girl;Tough old broad; Clever; Hugely talented.

    I seen Elaine Stritch in A Little Night Music. She still has it. In her 80s, nothing stops her. I applaud for her timely work in both Broadway and films.

    I would like to go, but at the moment I am so strapped with bills and whatnot that I rarely go to the city than I did before. It seems like I am going less now than I did. I use to spend over $200 dollars at one time, but now I have to save it for paying bills. Also, I am now rarely seeing plays nowadays. I use to see a lot of them, but with the job and everything, I'll to save for another. When? I don't know...
