One moment, the foobs were in a teal-and-lavender monstrosity of a wedding, and the next they were propelled back into the past. But it was a different version of the past. What happened?
I wonder if Elly will understand what eBay and thesmokinggun.com are when she gets back to the present day.

I like the line about keeping it in the strictest confidence. One of the things which I find irritating about the Phyllis Diller letters is the fact that they were up for purchase at all. Lynn says some very personal stuff in them that I am sure she never intended to be available for public knowledge. On the other hand, I am glad for the information as a fan, because it tells the reason why the quality of the strip has suffered over the last 10 years, which Lynn has never confessed in any other venue. I am glad to have read them, even though I am shocked at Phyllis for making them available.
howtheduck, I've had the same reaction as you to the letters to Phyllis Diller. I can't help but be interested in their content, but the fact that Diller listed them for auction stuns me whenever I think about it. It has also always struck me as odd that something possessed LJ to think "I'll write to Phyllis Diller; I am sure she'll 'get' me."
LOL - This is an upgrade on Lynn Johnston, who sent a handwritten letter (misspellings and all).And yes, I agree with you and Howard that these "foolish fan" letters should NEVER have been up for purchase at all. It's pretty disgusting for someone to so cavalierly sell personal correspondence that was never intended for the public eye, no matter WHO it is from.I may not like Lynn Johnston, but unless she actually consented to the sale of those letters, this is utterly despicable behavior on Ms. Diller's part, no matter how hard up she thinks she is for money.
