Scene: Sitting in Contemporary Memoir, talking about Rent Girl.
Professor: Blah blah blah, Michelle Tea, blah blah blah.
Student Jory: Well, when I interviewed Michelle Tea this summer...blah blah...
Class: Blah blah blah Michelle Tea blah blah Rent Girl blah.
Professor: Hey, Jory, could you email Michelle Tea and ask her this question for us? And also this question?
Man, why don't I get to be cool like Jory? Jory and I both have Tulip Festival pics for our Facebook profiles; that means we are similarly cool and I could interview authors for my blog, too, right? How do I get ahold of them? I'll just look them up in the phone book, yeah.
