completely fangirled when i saw you have a tumblr. screamed so loud my partner ran in because they thought i'd hurt myself. or seen a silverfish. i deeply dislike silverfish. anyway, i think you're brilliant. truly gifted. that is all. :)

Don’t die! But also don’t worry, silverfish can’t kill you. Their mouths are tiny.

I just got your book the other day and it is HILARIOUS. It has led to many outbursts of snorting laughter, many of which occur during class. So thank you for that.

Hooray!!! Suck it, school!!! 

my brother and i are skipping the orphan black premiere to see you in boston on saturday <3

Woohoo see you there! Also Hooray DVRs!!!

Laney Strange here, a big fan from way back. I'm writing to share a new project I’m working on that you might fancy. It seems like we share some overlap in how we think and work about girls and nerds and creativity. In a few words, I'm putting on a conference in October, Blur, that provides a forum for technical chicks to pursue and display their creative interests loudly and unapologetically. I'd love to invite you to give a talk if it sounds as interesting as I hope! laney at memphispunch com

It sounds awesome but I am so incredibly slammed I cannot take on one more obligation. I’m about to get mono! You sound incredible and so does your conference and I wish you the most MASSIVE of luck. It’s going to go great!!!

In one of my podcast episodes, we chatted about "sensual" games. I mentioned that female gamers are pretty creative because they figure out that in the original Halo, they used the fat xbox controller, sat in the Warthog's gunner position, and fired off a few "rounds." Have you ever heard of that before? Also, who said gamers aren't intelligent? There was a lot of thought put into that one. HA.

In fact I HAVEN’T thought about that. :-) I’ve got other “controllers” to get that job done. Also, you are right. Gamers are brilliant. The world isn’t ready for us! Hah!

Pbltltlt, indeed. How 'bout Trebek's job instead...?

Haha I have so many jobs I can’t possibly do another. Feeling super lucky. Thanks for being so awesome and supportive! Your Renner avatar is adorbs.

Hey, Aisha I was wondering how you became the host of Whose Line. Did they call you and ask, or what? I was just curious :-) By the way, I think you're an excellent host! -Molly

They called and asked! I was INCREDIBLY flattered. And I feel so lucky to have that job. All we do is laugh and laugh. And make fun of Colin. Hooray! Thanks for watching!

miss aisha, lemme tell you-- i adore ya! you're gorgeous, hilarious and have always made me laugh!! I never thought you'd make me smile/laugh/snort, to the point of trying to control my bladder, on a crowded train. Self-inflicted wounds is hands down, one of the best books i've read! I don't care that i haven't finished it, i claim it best book EVER!! TY for writing this and sharing it!! it's helped me tremendously battle "the saddening" and everybody knows, don't nobody want "the saddening" ^_^

Boo “The Saddening!” Thanks for buying my book! You are awesome. Also, don’t pee!!!

Hey! Did you enjoy Louisville?

It was awesome! Too short. Got to drink 50-year old bourbon and cook with my buddy Chef Edward Lee (610 Magnolia). Can’t wait to get back!

Outside Frankfurt Avenue Beer Depot with Ed Lee and Matt Jamie. Hair smells like smoke. Face smells like smoke. Heart smells like smoke.

Chef Lee caresses a 50 year old bottle of Kentucky Bourbon like a twee fluffy kitten. And then we drank it. Boom. #mindofachef
