Phone message from my mom

May 26th, 2006 | Oddments

I’m having trouble getting YouTube to embed in my new blog, so if you want to hear this you’ll have to leave the site. It’s not a video, really, it’s the only way I could figure out how to record this phone message from my mom on the day I did the Entertainment Weekly photo shoot–catch the aside she makes to someone in the room as she’s hanging up.

    LOL… Probably similar to what my mother said when I told her I’d been accepted into graduate school! Congratulations!

    Hee! Sounds like something my mom would say.

    That’s great. I have Fun Home on order from the local bookstore. I dreamed the other night that it came and the pages were falling out. The text was in cursive and there were only a few pictures. Anyway, the point is, I haven’t read it yet, but always had the idea that your mother was pretty cool because of the way she handled your avoidance of the scarf dance.

    Gees, easy to see where the fodder for your writing comes from…

    I just finished reading Fun Home last night. It is the third graphic novel that I’ve ever read (the other two being by Harvey Pekar) and I simply can’t stop thinking about it. Congratulations on a true work of art. I’m a mother of three, 47-years-old and I want to read more about your life, Alison. And I wouldn’t mind being gay either–what have I been missing my whole life??? I will definitely research access to more of your work. Best of luck with your tour. Any chance of coming out to Shaker Heights, Ohio??

    What’s scary is that I can hear myself leaving a message like that for my daughter… particularly the “I think”
