-You said you wanted to grow. Do you feel you’ve grown?
-Well, I hardly know how to answer that since they misinterpret that, meaning in inches or something.

"Well, I used to long for it. I used to appear on, when I was modeling, on mens’ magazine covers. Such as, uh, I don’t know… Squint, Peep, Take A Peep…" [laughs]

Lock me in your arms forever
That’s the place I want to be
So anyone can see
That I belong to you
And you belong to me

"Her expression and moods were as vital as the rush of Niagara. Marilyn was never more vibrant than onstage and backstage at the Hollywood Bowl, in her Lorelei dress from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, to raise funds devoted to the St. Jude Hospital for underprivileged children, a charity close to her heart." - Bruno Bernard

Tumblr Fan Page Submission Request - “Impact of a Legend: Marilyn Monroe” Survey

Hi there,

My name is Tayla, and I’ve been a keen fan of all things Marilyn Monroe ever since I can remember. I adore her so much so that I’ve decided to conduct a research project for school all about the impact and influence that she has had and continues to have on popular culture, and her effect on our society.

As a part of my research, I am to collect and analyse information from a broad variety of primary and secondary research sources, one of these sources being a survey.

I was wondering if it might be possible to share this survey to any Marilyn Monroe-lovers you may know and on any of your Marilyn Monroe fan social media pages, in particular, this very Tumblr fan page, so that I may be able to collect as many answers and results as possible, please?  I really would greatly appreciate it.

If you do choose to share it, I would very much appreciate it if you could share it as such:

"Attention fellow Marilyn Monroe enthusiasts!

My name is Tayla, and I’m currently conducting a research project all about Marilyn Monroe and her impact and influence on popular culture within our society. As a part of my research, I am to collect and analyse information from a variety of different sources, one of these being a survey. So, I thought - who better to complete such a survey than those who know and love her best! That’s right - I’m enlisting your help.

I really would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete this survey, entitled ‘Impact of a Legend: Marilyn Monroe’, linked here:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NWM9CSB

It will only take just a moment, really! And don’t worry, you don’t have to be crazy obsessed with Marilyn Monroe or know too much about her in the slightest to complete the survey. And if you’re not all that keen on the topic, it’d really mean the world if you could share it to as many of your friends, family or relatives as possible that may be interested.

Thank-you so much for your time, I really do appreciate it!”

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

I wouldn’t be able to thank you enough if you could share this, and if not, I would be very grateful if you could complete the survey yourself or pass it on to anyone else you may know who it might be of interest to.

Thank-you very much for your consideration and time.

Kind regards,

Tayla Giles

(P.S. - I absolutely love your fan page, by the way - keep up the great work!)
