Maria, this was so excellent to read. Your utter lack of pretension combined with your beautiful high-altitude brain is like chocolate and peanut butter. Such a good interview!
@IBentMyWookie I don't live in America, I didn't read her book or watch The Office, so I don't know anything about her really except what she looks like. Maybe she's pudgy and non-white, but I think she's objectively very, very pretty. Super pretty! Do you really think she's plain?
@heartbreakturnip This was the opposite of tedious. Maria going all Nancy Drew with her e book search function was *thrilling*, even.
