“I just want more of her.” A wonderful piece on the late lamented food writer, Laurie Colwin.

And the Reviews Continue to Pour In


Dear Kay,
Just in case you haven’t been keeping up with the YouTube comments on our video, here’s one that came in today from what appears to be the Dutch version of YouTube:

Knitonepurl2 heeft een reactie geplaatst op Pardon Me (I Didn’t Knit That for You):
love it. are they both men?

I like the implication that one of us is OBVIOUSLY a man; it’s just not clear whether BOTH of us are.
Love,
Ann

  1. I had to delurk to say that this post made me laugh harder than anything in a while. Priceless.

  2. ditto! thanks for the giggle. dutch transvestites must be really good looking!

  3. You guys make my week. You guys make my week. You guys make my week. You guys make my week. <3

  4. only the shadow knows

  5. I loved your song before, but reading the recent Dutch response, ILSHIJABAG* or whatever it is the kids are saying these days!
    *I Laughed So Hard I Just About Bust A Gut

  6. Brilliant :))

  7. That is so funny!! I just about bust a gut too! Does the sound not work on Dutch Youtube? Maybe it’s dubbed in Dutch by men.

  8. Oh, it had been a long time since I had watched your brillant performance :) Just what I needed today. You guys are awesome.

  10. Gold. Pure gold.

  11. Sugar, you know that comment had to have been left by a straight person. Y’all are both just the perfect picture of graceful femininity and not at all drag-queenish.

  12. ROFL! My family could not understand why this made me laugh. I told them they are not knitters so they wouldn’t get it. Your video was great!

  14. Oh, mah goodness… I made my husband read that one. We both laughed harder than we have for a while.

  15. Oh my! I haven’t ever seen this (not sure where I’ve been) but I love it!! And the comment from YouTube

  16. Oh, my, now that’s just silly! (grin)

  17. I wonder which of you they are sure is a man???? The Dutch must not be familiar with American country music circa 1970!

  18. That was blueberry-pie-coming-out-my-nose funny–thanks for the laugh! (Laughing with you, not at you lovely ladies!) Followed by indignence: How could they!?

  19. Maybe I am showing my roots but I thought yall looked pretty if a little over the top. Europeans are very unfamiliar with country music or its heritage.

  20. oh, MAN. love it. waiting to see the Dutch equivalent in an upcoming Eurovision contest.

  21. Too funny!

  22. ROFL!

  23. It was great to see this again (I’ve watched it in the past a *few* times) — it made me laugh out loud all over again. I needed that—thanks!!

  25. The song and video are awesome! Whatever about confused Dutch people, but the song is hilarious and brilliant. Thank you for some laughter! :)

  26. What you need is a couple of Dolly Parton rhinestone covered outfits to go with those wigs!! And really high heels!!! And blue eye shadow……lots and lots of blue eye shadow.

  27. You should do a live performance this summer in Provincetown. I hear Cher (or a tasteful facsimile) is very popular there and, like Cher, you two are already known by just one name all over the interwebs. “Annankay”. Maybe Merle could join you on stage and really shake things up. Just remember all the little people when you are up on stage waving to your adoring crowds and throwing kisses. :)

  28. Oh dearie me.

  29. OMG! That is hilarious! I love it!

  30. Literally lol’d on that one. Thanks.

  31. Hehehe – you make a great looking transvestite. That’s a good story to tell your grandchildren down the road. : )

  33. I’m thinking “Cabaret” – Sally Bowles, a girl, pretending to be a boy pretending to be a girl?

  34. “…As the images unwind
    Like the circles that you find
    In the windmills of your mind…”
    Truly a Dutch treat!
    LoveDiane

  35. OK, I just got coffee up my nose!

  36. Oh, I had not watched that before. Hilarious on so many levels!

  37. They must not have too many men there!!!!

  38. I am also geplaatst (whatever that is).

  39. You know? Now that you mention it, maybe you did manage a decent impersonation of female impersonators. I was married to a Dutch man for 9 years. They do have a way of going straight to the point and saying what’s on their minds. Too funny.
    I love this video. I watch it often.

  40. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! :)

  41. Thanks for the laugh – I needed that!

  42. huge thanks for sharing this.
    i laughed right out loud, with Gusto.
    i hope we all laugh about this for a long time.
    xxooxxoo

  43. That was awesome! My fiance is probably wondering why I’m laughing hysterically (let him wonder, more fun that way). That totally brightened my night, thank you.

  44. And may the bird of paradise perch on your shoulder (and not fly up your nose). Thanks for the jolly reminder of your country music debut.

  45. what happened to your second n Ann?

  46. ROFL. Kay and Ann in drag.
    This is going to lift my day more than you can ever imagine. XOXO

  47. Well done! Good way to start a Monday!

  48. Well that makes the tea you just slurped come out your nose!

  49. Brings new meaning to “going Dutch.”
    Or with but one letter change: “going Butch.” :)

  50. haha… hilarious!

  51. HAHAH oh my Lord – Hah – what I want to know is exactly what search did they put in to UTube to come up with your video – hah!
    I don’t think I can stop laughing.

  52. HAHAH oh my Lord – Hah – what I want to know is exactly what search did they put in to UTube to come up with your video – hah!
    I don’t think I can stop laughing.

  53. Is this a new career in the making? It could lead to hilarious conversation at dinner parties…
    “And what do you do?”
    “I’m a Dutch Tranny.”

  54. laughing hysterically while working in Wyoming! love you guys. Maybe you ought to get dressed back up again and give an encore!

  55. too funny!

  56. Thanks, I needed a good laugh today!

  57. Thanks, I needed a good laugh today!

  58. Oh no, my 8 year old just walked up to the computer and said “who’s that guy?”.

  59. Now excuse me while I sneak out and try to breath while I change my pants from mmmm laughing so hard. I needed that.

  60. It’s just the wigs. . .

  61. My (also clearly feminine) daughter dressed up as Cyndi Lauper for Halloween (blonde wig) and people all over the school were talking about “that dude in the tutu.” This made her feel SO much better! Thanks!!
    It must be the wigs . . .
