When you've gone over something AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN like I have, certain questions get answered, OTHERS SPRING UP! You mind plays tricks on you, YOU PLAY TRICKS BACK! It's like you're unraveling a big cable-knit sweater that someone keeps on knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting..."

laugh-in love

it was nice to have a night to just chill last night. i did a little bit more work on Cleaves. I'm about three inches away from being done w/ it. i feel like it should be done already. it's just a 2X2 rib on 11's. what's the hold up! i did have that great zen knitting thing going on when i was just crankin' away on it watching laugh-in on Trio. okay, i love that show. i wasn't allowed to watch it when i was a kid, b/c it was "dirty". but I think it had more to do w/ the fact that my parents actually voted for Nixon. what genius to surround whatever you wanted to say about anyone with puns, non-sequitors, sight gags, corniness and self-deprication. you probably couldn't get away with it now. we couldn't at MTV and we were the animation department! i mean, wouldn't you expect irreverence, weirdness and topicality from the MTV animation department? such crap. anyway, i love the dippy goldie, i love the crazy joanne whorley and i am ruth buzzi. i got to meet joann whorley after a show she did at Rainbow and Stars a while back. she was very nice and appropriately nutty. she was supposed to replace Linda Lavin (after Tyne Daly) in Gypsy and word had it that she was the best one b/c she could sing it and act it. never happened.
anyway, below is my book jacket photo. my publisher says a good picture will sell books so i let him have this one and he loved it. the book (the pubished version of THE MERMAID) is supposed to come out this weekend. i am very excited. i looked at the galleys yesterday and it suddenly dawned on me that this is really going to happen. woo-hoo!
