CW, they were ambivalent. Yes, there was the chance to position me as an expert but (a) I've done almost no TV and had no 'media training' yet; (b) I would have had to be there within 3 hours (with 1.5 inches of grey roots showing...) and (c) most importantly, there is no book to sell yet -- publica...

Hmm, I wouldn't stop with a bucket. Keep it coming...

They are amusing, and at least most of her targets know full well that they are legit -- i.e., they have made their living by becoming celebs, and know the tradeoffs. Still, I do find that kind of celeb bio unappealing.

Misfit, this would be the Queen's Pawn, Princess Alais, whom you are slandering in this fashion? :D

Katie Couric wanted me on CBS tonight, but blessedly the publicist agreed when I didn't really want to do it. Still, cool to think that this is going to turn out to be more timely than I had ...
