i am reminded of one of the early indications i might have been not completely absolutely 100% straight:

my cousin once got me to stay up late by telling me elvira was on late… and she took her shirt off right there on tv (it was okay, because it was on really late!)…and she had bazooms! (elvira, that is; not my cousin. that would be weird… although, this was rural arkansas, so maybe the rules flex a little.) we stayed up late in eager anticipation, but we never did see elvira, i dunno if we got the day wrong or the channel, or what. (we were like 8! there was no tv guide! shut up.) i remain disappointed to this day. maybe someday, O Mistress of the Dark; maybe someday.
