I’m definitely tempted, now that the topic is pop culture, to just surrender to my lowest common denominator urges and write about Paris and her potential incarceration. I actually went on CNN and discussed this issue twice this week (I will talk about Paris ad infinitum if it means publicizing my book, and they were kind enough to show the book cover both times). I just want to know who wrote the petition that’s been sent to
Schwarzenegger, because that person needs to pursue a career in fiction! According to it, she “provides hope for young people all over the world,” and that movie House of Wax that she was in is a “horror classic.” Will she go to jail or not? Truthfully, I really don’t care.
I’d actually rather discuss the book I’m listening to (and yes it counts as reading when you’re listening to it), Mergers & Acquisitions. It’s by Dana Vachon, who’s under 30 andgot $650,000 for it, and I had every intention of hating it and him for those facts alone. But then I went to his book party and found him too charming to dislike. So now I’m reading/listening and utterly enthralled by the antics of bankers who care more about golf club memberships than anything else. His descriptions are spot-on and I’m actually driving around looking like an insane person, cackling at Roger Thorne’s ribald tales of his sex life, as I switch lanes. I’ve even been blogging about this on my own site.
So I’m buying into the Dana Vachon hype while attempting not to surrender to following the hysteria around Paris Hilton’s latest antics.
Unless, of course, CNN calls again.
