Laura here, as mentioned in Michael's Diaries by cmclaura on 6 June 2008 5:41am
 
Just found this site, whew. Yes, I really am the Laura of "Laura & Loretta" as mentioned in Michael's diaries when the troupe was in NYC in May 1976 (was I really just 17?). Loretta and I lost track of one another years back. The last time I saw Michael (with Terry Jones) was at a civil liberties fundraiser in London around 1984. Despite having lived in England from 85-92, I discontinued stalking at that time : ) I'm going to visit England in October this year and would love to see if anyone has any info about Michael's schedule. Otherwise, I will write to him (snail mail, ack) to see if he might possibly sign my copy of his book, on the page where I am mentioned, because OF COURSE no one I know today (have I become too sedate in my old age?) believes it's really me. I do have photographic evidence that it's me although I'm years older and pounds heavier, ugh) but I would love to have it 'notarized' as it were, from Michael himself. Besides which, I've always thought he makes the very best cuppa in the world and I'd love another!

Another knicker thrower.

Laura, hello. Are you in New York now.

Gosh, Laura, hello & welcome & you're actually MENTIONED in the 'Diaries'?

Lots of us will be very impressed, I certainly am, well you're Immortalised in print in a huge best-seller!

Check out the site (on this Blathering On thread) - if anyone finds Michael gigs, we put them here, with details.

I'm Linda, living in London & now I'm off to look you up in the Great Work again!

weren't you those two girls who tried to pick up Mike and Terry in their hotel in NY ?... sorry I don't remember I must go home and check the book.

Maybe I'm just cynical but is it the same girl who's posting now ?

JTM,cynical ? Laura, I haven't read the diaries, so am intrigued to know how you came to be mentioned ?

Goodness, quite a few replies. In answer to the questions:

Johnnythemonkey, I've thrown no knickers. I am, however, a major name dropper. : ) And I don't understand your cynicism.

Tucsonmike, I haven't lived in NYC since 1983 but I am just 2 hours away in Pennsylvania.

Geordiegirl, Hello Linda! It was just a quick mention because Loretta and I threw a little party for the boys backstage at City Center, where they were performing. Yvonne Innes helped set it up. We were young and we babysat for Terry's daughter, Sally, while they were staying in NYC. It was a fun time and so perfectly innocent. My other dubious claim to fame is that you can actually hear me laughing on the Live at City Center album....they had the microphone right above where I was sitting and my laugh is recognizable (could be scary, but it's a good laugh, not a Drescher-esque one). Where in London are you? I'll be there in October!

Kisch, I've never tried to pick up anybody. When I knew Michael and Terry, they were renting Garson Kanin & Ruth Gordon's home on East 49th St, right next door to Katharine Hepburn. I remember one day Mike was so excited that he had seen Kate in the garden!

Wow! This is amazing! Thanks so much for finding the site and posting here!

That's fantastic! You're an honored guest among the likes of us, then. *bows* Welcome to the site. :-)

By the way, where are you in PA if I may ask? I have family in Mechanicsburg and Harrisburg.
