Twitchy, Bitchy -- and Manic

"Partly Jane Fonda and partly Jane Fonda!" Oh, JunkThief, what are you talking about, I've heard many a youngster ask. Well, back in 1971, my grammy took me to see this musical (complete with the Oh Calcutta! bare assed reference edited out of the CBS broadcast). Grammy P just loved the show and said she felt it embodied a world where I would one day reside and thrive. I pleaded to have her take me to THAT bar for a Shirley Temple, but she drew the line there. I did make it there eventually "It's just too groovy to believe!"

And you know what, Grammy P, I agree that it's dull to be too sane. Thank you for opening that first window all those years ago.

I had no idea they made a musical version of "All About Eve". Do you think it was wise to be tossing Lauren Bacall around like that? I mean, even in 1970 she was like 235 years old. What if she fell down and broke a hip? What would Sanka have ever done?

Give the old girl a break, Angry. She was only 218 in 1970, by the way. How do you think she got that Tasty Feast gig? All those cat moves and nine lives.

OMG! How amazing! Reminds me of the time I saw Carol (the other Mrs.) Channing in "Hello Dolly!" She stopped the show to ask the audience if we thought she was going to fall into the orchestra pit. What a doll! Sorry I missed Bacall! You lucky boy, you!!
