Dear beloved Diary readers,
As much fun as it is to share my self-indulgent diary entries with you every week, sometimes a girl misses the interaction that a diary medium precludes. It’s a one-way conversation, see, and one that I can have alone in my apartment, wrapped in a blanket, with only a glass of wine and my frightening inner monologue to keep me company.
Once in a while, it’s nice to remind oneself that there’s a great big world out there, full of interesting people with interesting lives and interesting stories to tell. I don’t want to hear any of them, of course, because most of you are probably pretty annoying and I dislike almost everyone I meet, but occasionally it’s a good exercise to venture outside my comfort zone, and bring some of you into my world. Briefly. And without any touching or awkward pauses.
So let’s get to know each other a little better. I’ve taken the first step, by answering some of the questions you posted on Twitter. It’s like a conversation, except I’m not really interested in asking you anything. We’ll call this experiment “Ask S.E. Cupp,” or “Why Does Matt Labash Get to Have All the Fun?” Enjoy, and thanks for asking.
@duhCMB Well then here is a question, do you break dance..and whats your go to karaoke song!! dont lie every1 has one…sing loud sing proud
Great question, @duhCMB. I do not break dance — because I’m 31, a chick, and am clinging to what little dignity I haven’t surrendered to the political pundit demons. And I’ve never done karaoke, though I do fantasize about it often. I have a few songs I consider doing when the perfect moment presents itself, including Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” Alice Cooper’s “Feed My Frankenstein” and NIN’s “Closer.”
@colbyreade Random question…How much notice do they give you when they ask you to be on those TV panels? A day? An hour? #justcurious
Thanks, @colbyreade. Sometimes I’m booked as far as a week in advance, and sometimes it’s a last minute call. And sometimes I’m booked and then canceled when something bigger comes up — like Snooki getting arrested.
@CutThroatPK next time you host on a L.A. radio show can i be your intern??? Please
I’d be honored! Unless you’re creepy or incompetent, of course. Or ugly. Sorry, friend, but that’s the way of the world.
@Bulldrake Have you ever hunted wild turkey..not drank Wild Turkey..hunted wild turkey? How many deer have you killed?
I’ve not hunted wild turkey, @Bulldrake, but only because I like to hunt what I can eat. And I’m just not that into turkey. As for deer, I’ve killed 4,083 beautiful 22-pointers, but that’s just in my dreams. In reality, I’ve yet to bag a buck. Got two doe tags in the lottery this season though, so I’m hoping this is my year.
