Those are only a few of the things I must avoid for the next week. The reason? On-screen continuity!

I'm down in Ventura, Calif., right now, getting ready to perform my stage monologue Ben Franklin: Unplugged for a month at the lovely Rubicon Theatre (if you know people in the area -- I think L.A. is about an hour away -- please let them know!). But early next week -- on an off-day from performing -- I'll be flying back up to the Bay Area to tape the second half of an episode of The Josh Kornbluth Show.

We taped the first interview -- with child psychologist Dan Siegel, co-author of the wonderful book Parenting from the Inside Out -- last Friday.
