I've been glued to my laptop and telephone for the past several days, working on tonight's show. It's amazing how much more work we had to do for a show where Bob and I aren't actually reading anything.
Instead, tonight How to Kick People will be conducted as a fake memorial service for the fake deaths of Bob and me, and our loss will be eulogized by friends and past guests from the show. There will also be videos, and more awkward photos of me than I'd ever care to see.
I'm exhausted right now, but there's more to be done. In fact, I just had a meeting with two people on the show where we brainstormed in the creation of a list of popular song titles made utterly disgusting. (On my way home from picking up dry cleaning, I came up with a great one: Joan Jett's "I LOVE COCK AND BALLS.")
I kind of can't believe I've figured out a way to still operate on such a childish level, even well into adulthood, but I'm pretty grateful for it. My parents are going to at the show tonight, and I think I'm going to make them proud. And by proud, I mean "sick." There are still tickets left!!!
