Welcome to I'd love to kiss you but I just washed my hair! An unwieldy title, certainly, so we'll just use I'd love to kiss you.

As a first post I thought it would be appropriate to explain the origins of this blog's title. It is ofcourse a quote from Bette Davis - from The Cabin in the Cotton (1932), to be precise. Her exact words were "I'd like to kiss ya but I just washed my hair", but Bette misquoted herself many times whenever she greeted an audience - to standing ovations.
Here's a video of the original scene:


  1. I love that movie. Actually, I was wrong, I hate that movie but I love Bette in it. She is such a devious femme fatale. Wonderful!!

  2. I would agree it's not among the best movies Bette's been in, Emma :-)


Thank you for your thoughts and comments - it is much appreciated!
