Remembering Stella

No favourites today. Instead, let's remember our favourite moments with Stella Young, who died on the weekend.

I saw her Comedy Festival show, Tales from the Crip, earlier in the year. I think it was the first night because she was a bit nervous, and I hadn't seen her nervous before.

It was a terrific show about the earnest awkwardness of strangers who don't know how to treat a person like a person; she left everyone who was there cringing with embarrassed recognition. It's a mighty brilliant writer who can make her audience laugh at themselves.

And I don't think I'll ever forget her story about being asked to "stand up for a bit" during sex.

Love to Stella's family and friends.
