10:28 pm - We're Supposed to Get Some Books. On Stalin.
I know you all have been eagerly awaiting the second half of our Cathy Belben interview, so...there it is. Check out my mad interviewing skillz! She talks about dream casting, questions about the episode, and her fellow writers, among other things. Oh, and we find out what she's wearing. And what I'm wearing. Also, it has the best ending to an interview ever. EVER.

Now, some pimping.

cindywrites talks to Buffy about VM. She's taking the breakup kind of hard, I think.

horsefacehannah makes out with a cat. I link because she is pretty. Karen, not the kitty.

This book and this book are the greatest books ever.

The former:

It contains 365 daily orders, each one of which could turn your humdrum existence into a daily free-fall. On day 295, propose to a complete stranger. On day 181, get your street renamed after you. On day 16, discreetly give the finger to everyone you meet. Other days encourage self-crucifixion, currency manipulation, and writing to dictators.

The latter:

Days to spice up your life include:

* Claim you're Jesus day
* Lobby Celine Dion to sing about you
* Bake naked day
* Let children rule the world
* Speak only Esperanto day
* Speed-read
War and Peace

And the ever-popular Pour Cocaine Down an Anthill Day.

Well. I've run out of things to pimp already. I rock at padding posts.

Excellent interview. I love that she buys Glarkware. And, possibly more importantly, excellent icon. STEVE HOLT!

Those books sound hilarious; thanks for pointing them out! Though I don't think I can show them to my little brother after I get them, because he will probably do all of them. In a week. :-)

There needs to be a parade for Pour Cocaine Down an Anthill Day. And party favors.

I know that drawing of a stapler from somewhere. Where do I know it from? It's in a book I own. Dave Eggers? Help me!

Yesssssss. *dorky fist-pump*

I wish I could justify the price of a McSweeney's subscription.

THE MOST HILARIOUS INTERVIEW EVER!! Damn, that librarian made me laugh so hard. So cute!

Poor girl though. You tried to make her feel stupid by throwing all these small detail thingies in there. And then your inside RT knowledge. Tsk, tsk.

Although Springsteen, she should totally know...

Laughed my ass off with the 'which one do you prefer?' And then muscular Rob. Hehe.

She sounds like such a fun person to talk to. I'm officially jealous.

I wasn't trying to make her feel stupid! I thought she would know! She also didn't know who Carrie Bishop was, though.

She was fun to talk to, definitely.

You should leave a comment on the interview so she knows how much you enjoyed it.

Great interview. Cathy seems so sweet and her story really is amazing.

Also hee to the books. My best friend just gave me the first one as an early Christmas present so we can both start it January 1st. Should be hilarious.

I could actually see myself celebrating Bake Naked Day. I'd have to draw the blinds, though.
