The funniest part about being Totally Famous is that I'm famous for something I never thought I'd be famous for. I guess that's kind of how it goes. You try to be an actress and end up a brilliant playwright. You go into college admissions and end up in Iowa Writer's Workshop. You think you'll become a precocious novelist and publish in your twenties, and instead, one day, you get asked to write a libretto and you do and then it totally gets performed.
From time to time, everyone googlesearches his- or herself, right? For years, I've been trying to get this inane bit I wrote in to the Honolulu Advertiser pushed onto at least the second page of results. Unfortunately, it is still the number one result, but at least--finally--I also have something in the top ten results of which I can be more proud.
