A better name for me would be:
Barbara. It was the name my parents were going to give me originally, it is the name
everyone calls me when they cant figure out my real name, and I like it better than
I have a hard time understanding:
how anybody can eat oysters.
If I ever go back to school, Id:
probably flunk out even more gloriously than I did in 1962, since I can't remember
anything any more.
You know I like you if:
I want to spend time with you.
If I ever won an award, the first person Id thank would be:
depends on the award. I did win an award for helping to write a script (my
involvement was minimal). It was just a few months after Paul died. When he
was alive, I always said that I wanted to see him win an award so he could thank me from
the stage, so when I got the award, I just held it up and said "this is for
If I could bring back a TV show for a reunion it would be:
Northern Exposure (most of the other shows I liked have already had reunion
Take my advice, never:
...bite into something that looks like a green bean on your plate of Indian food.
It isn't a green bean. Trust me.
My ideal breakfast is:
Crab Benedict and fresh squeezed orange juice
A song I love, but do not own is:
Actually, I think I own all the songs I love. The nice thing about iTunes is
that you can buy ONE song without having to pay for an entire album that you don't care
If you visit my hometown (San Francisco), I'd suggest:
Take me along as your guide. You can see the cable cars, Fisherman's Wharf and
all the usual tourist spots on your own, but I'll give you a one day driving tour of the
spots people don't usually see...and throw in lunch at Greens, which I suspect most people don't know
If I could meet a couple of my blog buddies, I'd include:
I'm always tempted to want to meet Rob (Schuyler's Monster), but I don't think he
likes me very much (despite the fact that I'm such a likeable person!) so I won't put him
on this list. I've wanted to meet Marn
forever, even though she doesn't blog as much as she used to. I want to visit her
cabin in the woods and walk among her hostia and meet the spousal unit and their cats.
I'd also love to get together with Kwizgiver,
since we are both crazy.
Why wont people:
see that we are all just people, black and white and yellow and brown, male
and female, gay and straight, weak and strong, American and other nationalities. Why
do we have to have so many people hating so many other people?
If you spend the night at my house:
You'd better like dogs and clutter
Id stop everything for:
a call from my mother saying she needed help.
The world could do without:
Prejudice, hatred, wars, and beets.
The last time I got drunk I:
I can't remember the last time I got drunk...which either means I was blotto or that
it was so long ago I have forgotten it. Since I don't drink any more, I suspect it's
My favorite blonde is:
Paper clips are more useful than:
straight pins (and less painful too)
If I do anything well, its:
I used to say "type" but since my typing has turned abominable and
embarrassing now, I'll say that am a wiz with a ComCast TV remote.
And by the way:
If everyone I love would please stop dying, I would very much appreciate it.
