And I remember when I was 5 years old, my dad's partner, his wife, Marlene Rosenbaum, at their house, she was making dinner. She said what do you want to do when you grow up? I said a comedian, very like, matter of fact, 5-years old and she laughed. What? It was me to a certain extent, you know what I mean? It was like an extreme version of myself, you know, once again at that time, you know, I mean, I played her a little bit more naive, a little bit more like walk around like, this is, you know, taking in the world. So, you know, it was in character. I love that I do that. I think it's such a really like great thing, another watershed moment in my career in terms of just, you know, the performance artist aspect of everything, you know. I mean, I do it as much as my day to day life as I used to. Of course I have a different take on things having a daughter. You know, I want to protect her and make sure that she's on the right track. But when it comes to my live performing, I'm still like, you know, all bets are off and I pretty much say and do what I want to. You stay true to yourself as an artist and never changes. You just got hopefully more evolved and deeper as you go on. The things that surprise people like I really love to clean my house. I did love doing laundry and I'm super organized.

I wish I've known how happy I was going to be in having a dog 'cause we have a dog two years ago. He's a rescue from North Shore Animal League. He's a mix of bull or terrier, maybe a little bit of pug, named George. Occasionally, I watch Teenage Moms [unknown]. Hippie meets classic. Magaga, Lady Magaga [unknown]. Well, my life as karaoke, I guess anything from Heart. Spare a little candle. Save some light for me.
