* RealLifeWritesThePlot: A large portion of the album dealt with Mitchell's partner break-ups, often in great detail and brutal honesty. The line ''I want to knit you a sweater'' in "All I Want", for instance, was something she used to for Graham Nash. "The Last Time I Saw Richard" is literally an anecdote about her last meeting with Chuck Mitchell, referred to as Richard.
