Took him to lunch and Chicago's Lincoln Park zoo when he was performing here. His advice:. Always carry a toothbrush with you, just in case you get lucky.

I love what Quentin has to say about dust, Jeremy - that after four years it stops growing! Reminds me bizarrely about Billy Connolly’s joke about pubic hair!! Imagine it grew as long as a beard...well that is associative thinking for you ! 😱

You’re peachy! Talking about Quentin has taken me to you tube to watch old footage of some of his interviews. What a mind! Had forgotten just how very witty and wise he was - thanks for the reminder !

I hope you know you’re never too old to do anything. Had my daughter at 39. Earned my Ph.D. at 45. Won a teaching award at 61. Yeah—I’m that old, and I rock! Stop the bias about age—and particularly about aging women. We are wise and wonderful!

Congrats to you! You are going to be needed now more than ever - going forward into our uncertain future - even the previously mentally stable need a psychotherapist now !

Listened last night -I wanted to hear Douglas again. Thanks for putting us together Camilla! He is special. Joe made it all very intimate for us. There should be a name for a queer swoon!
