now I’m watching Stritchy sing “I’m Still Here” at the Sondheim concert and I’m crying 

Elaine Stritch was one of the last true broads of Broadway

Like, she was a broad

And a great one

Elaine Stritch, Tart-Tongued Broadway Actress and Singer, Is Dead at 89 | NYT

Plainspoken, egalitarian, impatient with fools and foolishness, and admittedly fond of cigarettes, alcohol and late nights — she finally gave up smoking and drinking in her 60s — though she took it up again — Ms. Stritch might be the only actor to work as a bartender after starring on Broadway, and she was completely unabashed about her good-time-girl attitude.

“I’m not a bit opposed to your mentioning in this article that Frieda Fun here has had a reputation in the theater, for the past five or six years, for drinking,” she said to a reporter for The New York Times in 1968. “I drink and I love to drink, and it’s part of my life.”

“I was reading [a self-help book] yesterday,” she says, “and it said: ‘Make your own bed.’ I said to the book: ‘Fuck you! I don’t have to make my own bed! That’s why I live at the Carlyle.’ ”

I don’t think this song gets much better than this. Elaine Stritch performing “The Ladies Who Lunch” before it gathered all the baggage of being her signature song.

I’m hearing from reliable sources that Elaine Stritch has passed away. A moment of silence would be the least appropriate response, so instead, I’d like to propose a toast.

Here’s to the one and only lady who lunched, there will never be another like her.

I’ll drink to that.
