Hooray for Moira! Remember us little people toiling in the Mineshaft when you're all rich and powerful.

Yay, Moira! Damn, now I need a goofy ambition that comes with a paycheck.

This is something I flirt with ... well, I was going to say periodically, but it's getting up to damn near all the time. So this is an inspiring goad. Now all I need is an inspiring goat. And a plan for how to eat for the two years.

If you got five inspiring goats, you might be able to eat for a year or so.

There's big money in goat goading.

Congrats! The business is hard to break into, but from what I've seen and heard of staff writers (mostly on animated series, admittedly), it's a great group working on a lot of the shows.

Just remember, the Emmys are bullshit until you win a few.

Thanks! It's crazy. Insane, crazy, loopy and - did I mention insane? I'm getting paid to sit in a room full of clever, funny people and make dirty jokes. It's an Unfogged meetup! With white boards!

I'd rather keep the name of the show on the down low for now but suffice to say, it's going to be big. It's on a major network and while you haven't seen promos yet, you will not be able to escape them. Hot time slot.

Again, I can't believe it. In the spring I read most of the pilot scripts and while I would have been happy to get ANY job, this show really was one of my favorite pilots (this, and Pushing Daisies - which is Tim Burton-meets-Edward Gorey silliness). It's got that addictive mix of drama and comedy, with lots of soapy elements. What can I say? It's my favorite kind of stuff to write. (Which is why I wasn't surprised when no one wanted to interview me for, say, the Sarah Connor Chronicles.)

Also fun? Walking to the commissary and discovering that Luke's Diner is 50 feet from Chicago El from E.R. Oh, the magic of television!

i really doubt this is the show you're working on, but if it happens to be moonlight, you have got to get me jason dohring's number.

Given that she wants the celebrity introductions from Moira, why would she sit on your lap?

Yes. More to the point, he's married.

34: no. Scientologist. And married. Also, on TV. Tell you the truth, ogged is Amy Sherman-Palladino.

At the meetup, "he" was in disguise.

Good detective work, Catherine!

It's not Moonlight, though a friend and fellow alumna from the WB Workshop is on that show. And it's not Amy Sherman-Palladino's show. I can say that a few folks from Veronica Mars are on this show and I've heard REALLY nice things about the entire cast of VM, esp. K. Bell and Tina Majorino (who almost, but not quite, makes watching Big Love worthwhile for me). Enrico Colantoni is apparently a GREAT, down to earth and overall fun guy to be around. I'd expect no less from the real star of Galaxy Quest.

36: kristen bell IS the nicest! see here. vmars was my favorite show for a long time, so if folks from there are on this one i'm sure i'll be tuning in.
