Good stuff.

Life and work and a phenominally non-functioning headspace have all conspired to make it very hard for me to post today. And so, unless I have a brain wave later, I’ll just leave you with these, some of my favorite moments by Eddie Izzard – the (Most of the time, people on the intertubez give it up for his Dress to Kill show — for that reason, I shan’t! Except for the last one, because really, I must post “Cake or Death.” How could I not?)

Note: It would perhaps behoove me to mention that part of what is slowing me down today is that I am trying, valiantly, to figure out that piece of blogging second only to “posting” in importance: Drawing in readers! So, hopefully next week I’ll have some fancy stuff added to the site (maybe even pictures! Oooh!) to aid me with this, but in the meantime, if you’re enjoying the random wandering through my head, from Eddie Izzard to fetid water (!), please do tell your friends and loved ones! Enemies, too, what do I care?

(By the way: I’m listening to the “Machines That Lie” clip as I write this, cracking up even as I type! And believe you me, I have seen it a time or two or twelve…! Enjoy!)


  1. Eddie is easily the funniest man I’ve ever witnessed.
    Used to be Robin Williams, but Eddie’s intelligent humor finally won out over the manic energy of Robin!
    Do you have a flag?

    Emily, thank you for the Eddie hilarity!

    I JUST read your farewell on Jez and I sent you a PM there; I hope you can still access it. I will try to join y’all in the “basement” as mentioned in an earlier post… I was wondering where the hell everyone went!

    Also, I loved your piece on your little girl’s b-day. We don’t have children, and probably never will, but there are certainly little ones in both our extended families, and I’m always thinking about the messages society sends boys and girls. I really enjoy your writing and was sad to see you go at aforementioned site.

    I don’t comment often, but I’m here, lurkin in your inter-tubes!

    Oh how I love Eddie Izzard. On his last tour, I spent gobs of money to see him live, and it was money well spent.
