Did my first ever late-night talk show appearance on Craig Ferguson's CBS show tonight at 12:30. (Or, technically, tomorrow morning at 12:30.) Audience very disappointed to see me. They were hoping for someone famous. Also, I still don't know if I was supposed to keep this bag of $50 in quarters I won in a bit. I may have stolen it.

Fan of Craig here. Characters welcome, that's the motto over there :) Your array is exactly what's required!

I haven't finished writing my book: Why is it 35% off already? This isn't giving me confidence. I'll write tomorrow. http://ow.ly/8NCVt

I guess I didn't help any by checking it out from the library, did I?

Even when the guy shooting at the White house is a young, non-white, liberal, he's still from Idaho.

That's because Idaho is considered to be Spudville, literally and metaphorically.

Don't know how Lifetime got the math so wrong, but Jennifer Love Hewitt would have to show 36% more cleavage in those ads to get me to watch The Client List.

I have no idea how this will help sell my book, but I'm supposed to ask you to "like" my book's Facebook page. How did I become 90 years old?

Screw it. Just pre-order the book here:

Joel, you are one of my favorite writers, but I seriously cannot figure out how you have achieved the career that you have. Yes, you are intelligent (certain about some things - way to call it on the Ryan Gosling thing), and funny (I chuckled when you talked about your son's circumcision), so from the bottom of my jealous-infused-blood filled heart I ask, TEACH ME! How can I ratchet my awesomeness level up to yours? And before you suggest it, yes, I'll buy and study your book, but come on, there has to be a secret society that you are part of or something and I want in.

Perhaps the whitest thing about me is that I've never once had an issue with anyone respecting me.

"disrespecting" you mean, right?

Yes, Time Magazine picked The Protestor as the Person of the Year, but I named Ryan Gosling as the far more prestigious Coolest Person of The Year: http://ow.ly/7ZpiX #POY2011
