Joe Blog's Interview #40 Hope Floats

Name : Hope
Age : 33
Location : New Jersey
Vocation : Writer
Philosophy : Sleeping Aids are your friends

Sum up what your blog is about.
It's a witty take on life in New Jersey by an actress, comedienne, writer, bartender, wife, and mom.

Why are you doing your blog?
To keep a record of the unusual (and usual) things that happen.

Whats the funniest entry on your blog?
I like writing about the pub where I bar tend. Probably the story about how I had to kick an intoxicated Little Person out of the bar for being too rowdy. And his girlfriend tried to come on to me. I gave him a Frisbee for answering some trivia questions correctly, though.

What is your writing style?
Simple and sarcastic.

How much would you sell your blog for?
Five hundred pennies and a pack of smokes.

What do people commonly say about your site?
That the bar stories are amusing.

Why should someone visit your site?
Guest Blogger David leaves the most hysterical comments.

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
That's a reality, brutha. I'm way too afraid to see that Al Gore movie. My husband is obsessed with it and he taunts me with little, scary snippets from the film every day.

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
Miss Snark, Pub Rants, and a whole slew of writing/publishing blogs. They take up half my day just keeping up with them.

What would you have written on your tombstone?

Would you go on a reality TV show?
For sure, but not one where I'd have to eat gross things or starve on an island. I love my man Jeff Probst, but I need my cheeseburgers.

What one website would you recommend and why?
MySpace It's addicting. Even when you're in your thirties. It kind of makes you a little bit of a loser, but it is so worth it to see the guy that dumped you in high school is now bald and likes Asian porn.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
I once stayed after a performance of The Producers in NY to meet the cast. I commented to Matthew Broderick that he took longer to exit the theatre than everyone else. I asked him if he'd taken a bubble bath in there and he immediately gave me a nasty, dirty look. Actually, I thought he was going to punch me. I've held a grudge over this ever since. Okay, it's not funny. It's just weird.

Had any supernatural experiences?
I can move things with my mind. Does that count?

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
If a really creepy guy wearing a black hat and a black coat approaches you and says he lost his puppy, DON'T help him look for it. You're not going to like his basement.

Can you tell us a joke?
A hamburger walks into a bar and asks to see the menu. The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve food here."

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actress’s, comedian, song and film.
Johnny Depp, Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" by Rufus Wainwright, and "Say Anything" with John Cusack.

What’s the most incredible thing that’s ever happened to you?
I had one of my plays produced in New York and then had it published. I make royalties on it now.

And finally, what would you wish for with 3 wishes?
1. A lifetime supply of Reisen chocolate candies
2. For "Six Feet Under" to return (pretending that they all didn't die)
3. To win American Idol

Now it’s your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like. What have you learned by doing these sassy little interviews?
Joe Blogs : I've learnt a lot of people have very interesting stories to tell. And apparantly my interviews are sassy and little. Oh and I've also learnt Matthew Broderick is a prima donna.
