James Lipton

So we have this book called "An Exhaltation of Larks". It's like an etymology dictionary, but more entertaining. It lists the more obscure words for "group of", among other things.

Today, Erica noticed that James Lipton is the author. Hrm, that's neat, is it THE James Lipton?

*Websearch* *DING* Yes, in the 1960s. Oh, Wow...

James Lipton was born in 1926. He's 83.

I NEVER would have guessed. Goes to show what a little hair color will do for perceptible age. Plus, he's very clear, composed unflappable, and overall mentally so much more active and able than his age would let on. I mean, just a few years ago, he chugged a Foster's oilcan and crushed it against his head during one of Conan's shows!

I hope I'm his mentally active when I'm 60.

Er, actually, I wish I were that mentally active now.
