    She never went to college because it was not considered proper for an upper-class lady.
    She liked to sleep in until three in the afternoon.

    When World War I broke out, she complained, 'And it was this month that my book of poems was coming out here. What attention will it get with this going on?'
    Worried about a possible wartime shortage, she ordered 10,000 of her favorite cigar brand.

    She won a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for 'What's O'Clock.'
