1. Pat Teller will call back, when she does she wants us to meet, and I suggest Tuesday before or after WWW, and she says she'll check with her husband, who ALSO works at LTS, and call me back for a firm date.

2. Carozza is busy and will call back tomorrow. Maybe she's unhappy with me?

3. Ginny Crofts and I talk for a long time, she's now in charge of SCIENCE editing, and will get in touch with me maybe when she has a math book to do.

4. Linda Schaffner takes Jan's name to have the designer of the McGraw-Hill style book get in touch with him about his needs for New York University.

5. NYU for Jan, leave word, he calls back, thanks me for the contact.

6. Althea Strail at McGraw-Hill is very happy with Knickerbocker, no chance.

7. Mary Lefkarites will call back, called at 6 and tried rooting out lots of names of groups that offer trips through Hunter, but we BOTH think that going through OFFICIAL channels might be good to get an in with Hunter.

8. Called Ron Tiekert and got Tom Aloisi who said things were very quiet, more desks than people, 20-30 new Math Centers in the fall, and that "I'm waiting to get directions for the next couple of months from Charles Walthur."

9. Carol Sims at Dutton, and she refers me to Engstrom, whose line is busy.

10. It took me two calls to get through to Althea Strail.

11. Avi no answer at first, then he's napping from a hard day last night, he's been robbed a second time, NOT going to summer school, looking possibly for a trip (even with me), will call back when he's more awake.

12. Fran calls, and then I call Gateway to cancel the Carozza option I took.

13. Call NYC parks for "Turandot" tonight, but they say "Weather permitting" and it's obviously raining, so I don't set foot outside the building all day.

14. Called Bob Grossman at 8:30 to ask why he wasn't at the opera; no answer.

15. John Connolly will call back about canasta after he gets weeks' schedule.

16. Bob Rosinek IS design director at Schiffli, will call him for lunch Tuesday; he's sorry to hear about me and John splitting, is willing to have me talk about it.

17. David Sears calls about the Canedo, Jack Howells, mid-60s fat gay owns it, and DAVID may be moving permanently to London, like Fred Courtney.

18. Joan Casarino, no answer after being busy after 9:30, left word at service to call.

And my half the phone bill was "only" $12.43 last month, MORE, I'm sure, this month.

SIX of the messages were blank: no one left their name; Michael later said he thought my machine didn't work with a pay phone, but it worked for ME!

Rolf called for me to climb Mount Slide in the Catskills with him; called him.

Steve Abramson of ACC called to get my social security #; called him next AM.

Fran called to say NYC-Tokyo now $630; RTW, using Saigon: $1651.40, but that there will be THREE more increases: November 1, January 1, and March 1.

Steven Pearlberg called, but didn't say anything; he's still at Arnie's.

BILL HYDE called for Herman Adler's address, and that took a lot of doing, since there were four in the book, and then I looked up his request for the Pocher of Italy prices for auto models in various hobby shops. Wrote him.

Avi called to say that grass was available, but the guy never DID meet him, and I talked a long time to him, comparing notes from his and my lives.

A wrong number made a joke out of it, Martha answering, Frank telling a joke.

Arnold called Saturday AM to chat, and twice more: giggling and BREATHING.

Bob Rosinek called to talk, giving his work phone number. I talked long with him the following TWO mornings, he still wants to get together about Seth.

Bob Grossman called, saying he thought I should have been BACK by now.

And then Mark Kraus of Trans World called, saying he had work for me to do.

To get through to Arnie, since neither he nor Steven was home, I called Norma, and hold HER to have him call me, which he did, not being able to get through between 5 and 7, since I was solidly on the phone.

Shelley Dobbins didn't have my new number, so he left a message with Bill Kirkpatrick, but he couldn't fit me into his schedule, though he tried Friday.

John Capella called, and I called Kingsborough AND him to find class CANCELLED!

One bit of luck, since I would have had to have missed 4 of the 13 classes!

Someone, I guess Bob, told me to read the Baltic cruise in Sept. 30 New Yorker, and I saw that Arnie had it, so I can borrow it from him when we get back.

Then, on Friday, Ron Tiekert called to say that I should call him or Tom on Monday about a complicated freelance job too much to leave a message about. So I'll have to leave a note with JOHN to call him. And I call the tape recorder repair shop and find that my bill is $48! How perfectly AWFUL!

11/13 (!) 2:45 am: My mind simply WON'T stop. "Castle Keep" roared to a climax at 1:45. I finally finish putting my French stamps until 2:15 and crawl into bed without smoking or coming. But the list of things to do builds in my brain:

1) Price the US stamps for Cyndy's collection
2) Add the South American stamps from Sergio
3) Sort through Sergio's "Europe" envelope for new ones for me
4) Write Cyndy and send her $$
5) Call Sergio, clear my takings, return his, give him new, get his new
6) Write to Paul and Mike for stamps
7) Soak and sort and fix MY stamps in
8) Call for Kingsborough refund
9) Write Elaine and Mom and Rita
10) Tape to Bill and Arnie
But still my mind whirls: all the effort of PEOPLE for "Castle Keep," all the PEOPLE that have handled my stamps, all the THINGS I'd like to do, the places to visit, and the people to meet and love. AND
12) the articles to the New York Times AND
13) Inquire of Interplanetary Noose about my story AND
14) check out the tape recorder AND
15) check out buying a camera AND
16) the Do list that I already have listed---
And then the next morning, while I'm lounging in bed, I think of the old saying "Ad astra per aspera" (To the stars through work?) and think that it might PHYSICALLY be "Ad astra per ASTRA" (To the stars THROUGH THE STARS), and think of Babbitt Brighton building a ship to explore a black hole, which is NOT an antimatter core but the doorway to a new creation, as the womb of Kali is the black hole through which the white hole of creation comes out through her stomach, or whichever way it goes. I DO WANT TO WRITE!

Admittedly I had the NOTE to call Lloyd on my desk for some days since the schedule had arrived, but I CHOSE to try Lloyd for the FIRST time the VERY day he got the tickets and schedule sent to him by Daisy, and he'd just found that "Ivan" and "The Sleeping Beauty" weren't coming because the sets were too heavy to transport. I said I'd call him again; when the revisions came! Admittedly I had called Rolf a number of times since he'd left the note on my answering machine last weekend, but I chose to call at 10 pm yesterday, the very MINUTE he arrived back from a week away, and he put the stuff out of his car and called me back.

Not MUCH of a coincidence was my calling Marty and his calling back to say that he'd wondered how my interview at the New School had gone.

Called Bob Grossman this morning and asked him about Equity Library Theater's production of "Do I hear a Waltz?" JUST as he was going through New York Magazine wondering what off-Broadway productions might be interesting to see.

Usually when I call Paul Bosten he responds by saying "I was just thinking about you," but I think that's more public relations than anything else.

Then there was the bit of showing Bob Grossman my writeup of my first sex experience in New York on the very day that he had been thinking about HIS first trick on the beach and in the bushes in Chicago when he was about 17.

Then I showed Art the phrase "That's an entirely different story" in my New York article when he said he found himself using that phrase over and over in HIS New York article.

Then there was going through the Latham material to select things for McGraw-Hill on the VERY day that I met George Allen at the Joffrey Ballet.

Then there was passing who LOOKED very much like Martin Mayer in the Brooklyn Heights subway station ONE DAY after I'd seen him at the New School, and the slight coincidence of knowing Sidney Offitt from Arnold's party.

Then Bob Rosinek usually has some coincidental thing to say whenever I call him, but that doesn't work when he calls me, since I don't think that way. But that's quite enough for the period of less than a week, isn't it?

I'd been so proud of finally cutting down my do list to seven items [exercise and meditate; do writing list; call Kevin; wash windows; see Art's stamps; file scrapbook; send tape to Bill] that I was extremely loathe to add anything to it. But then, typing DIARY 9486 (so MANY pages ago!) I came across so many things that I wanted to remember that I wrote a NEW do list. It had 17 items at THAT time, and it's SINCE grown to 23 items, and I guess that's the end of THAT short list. Anyway, the new list, just to show where I am, since I never save the lists THEMSELVES (that would be a BIT much) (though I've done it a few times in the PAST, certainly), is here:
How many weeks WORKED in 1974---benefit year inquiry for more unemployment benefits
Arnie: contacted Bramson agency about ship work?
do income tax
fix apartment
Ron Greenburg: Whaddya Know?
cut grass, avocado, poinsettia
plant grass
clean and repot many
wash dishes
letters to Mom, Rita, Paul, and many others
Logical Technical Services: how is it going? Tellers, too
buy file cabinet
schedule an orgy
package from post office
souvenirs away
buy bedroom rug
sort out ALL sex stuff into sections of good and bad
file Travel Agent magazine
glue chair together
letter to Ron Miller for when he gets back from his cruise
get haircut
So now I have a list of 30 items, some of which will take ages to do, and we're back into the cycle again, and I'm gradually beginning to feel all typed out, so that there's not MUCH to do still more.

I even had to take a note on how many pages I was specifying on which diary page, and of course I have to type that note:

DIARY 9483, specified to 9497 (did 2, added two)
DIARY 9486, to 9498.
on the NOTE: "THIS on LAST page. " Where am I now?: LAST last (see DIARY 9500), the page that I DID say I'd get to on the last line of page 9481!


Took some sample sentences from New Century's OYOs to illustrate WHY the series comma SHOULD be used, to make English (written) clearer:

"When I call your home, your mother or your sister tells me you are out." If series commas are NOT used, that sentence is VERY unclear. WITH, it's PERFECT. "The judge added up seven, four and two and got a total of thirteen." looks horrible without the series commas. Hit Tom Aloisi with this in case he, or anyone else, ever asks why I like them. Now to mention the clarity of "We had corn and peas and carrots" for two vegetables; "We had corn, peas, and carrots" for three vegetables; and "We had beans, corn, peas and carrots" for CLEARLY three vegetables, not even NEEDING the extra "and" to make it clear.

I recorded them at random on a pink slip, so I'll transcribe them in no order:
Director---John Dexter---Equus
Actress in a play---Ellen Burstyn---Same Time, Next Year (Bob's delighted with his Wednesday matinee ticket!)
Actress in a musical---Angela Lansbury---Gypsy (only one of 3 I SAW)
Actor in a play---the two blacks John Kani and Someone Tschumi in Sizwe Banzi
Actor in a musical---John Cullom---Shenandoah---with cracks about reviewers
Director in a musical---Geoffrey Holder---Wiz
Choreographer---George Faison---Wiz
Best score for a musical---Charlie Smalls---Wiz
Supporting actor in musical---Ted Ross---Wiz
Supporting actress in musical---Dee Dee Bridgewater---Wiz GIVING WIZ 6 TONYS!
Book for musical---Shenandoah---beating out Wiz
Scenic Designer---Carl Toms---Sherlock Holmes
Supporting actress in a play---Rita Moreno---Ritz (Let me chauw you my bids) show you my beads
Supporting actor in a play---Frank Langella---Seascape
Special Award---Neil Simon, who looked and sounded dreadfully dreadful.
So there were 16 awards to plays: 6 to the Best of the Best: THE WIZ
2 each to Shenandoah, which won't get me to it, and to Equus, which I've seen.
The six singles: Seascape, Sizwe Banzi, Same Time, Ritz, Gypsy, Sherlock Holmes.
There were 451 voters for the categories.
The rest of the show had lots of no-talent people entertaining, except for the star turns by Lansbury, Alexis Smith, and Larry Kert, still beautiful.
The touted Bridge of Thighs went only about 10 feet into the orchestra, the crowd looked like fun, and now with Bob Grossman I think it WOULD be fun to attend one, though I'm sure it's difficult to get in. Best quote of the evening: by someone awarded acting awards for the Wiz: "If the children of God are the flowers of earth, it's been a ball to stroll in your garden."
So I now want to see the Wiz, Same Time, and probably Art and Nancy for the Ritz.

Meditating for the first time in weeks this morning, and I come up with the idea of another CONSTANTLY UPDATED list on the books, movies, plays, operas, ballets, dance performances, and people I meet and have sex with, so that I can just RECORD all those things about once a week and then THROW OUT all the programs and listings and sheets that I might have saved up---and so I won't have to face that pile of junk from a year and a half on the sofa for a week and a half already. And then it puts things TOGETHER, more accessible than the datebook list, showing HOW things like movies and books and other activities will fit in together, seeing which takes the forefront when, making it easier to update the INDIVIDUAL lists later in the year. And then it puts everything in WRITING---which brings me back to the thought of what I'll LOSE when or if everything goes up in a FIRE, but at least it'll be a LIST that I might be able to SALVAGE, rather than boxes and boxes of papers and programs and lists that really have little INTRINSIC value except as a RECORD of what I've done, and a record can be better kept on a list of a sheet a month, rather than a pound of SOUVENIRS for a month. I can still keep extraordinary things like "last and first performance" programs, still keep tickets stubs and matchbook covers, but for the rest, most of it can be thrown out or filed in the bookcases so that I have a better IDEA of what I have, rather than stacking things away in the closet to just vanish into the dust except as something to keep track of when the end-of-the-year updating time comes, or when painting, or when moving. It's a way of clearing things out, putting MORE things in writing, keeping LESS space occupied with it, making the DATA more accessible, which is what I think is the most important part of it. And AT LAST I'm also caught up on the diary pages for this sequence of time---just in time to get the OTHER things out of the way in preparation for the trip to Florida, when, again, things will get OUT of hand and have to be caught up with AGAIN. But the cycles are fun, and that's what life is all about, and I've managed to make a whole page, down to the bottom, out of THIS topic, too.
