What's your favorite thing about the holiday season?

The crass commercialism/consumerism.

What's your favorite holiday movie?  

ABC Family (now Free Form) made a movie several years ago starring Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez called "Holiday in Handcuffs." It's not good, at all, but it's great.

What can people expect from your reading?

I'll be reading an excerpt from a joke book I started writing a few years ago that was essentially a parody of the "How to be Funny" genre of books. The concept of mine is how to be funny in every office situation, so the book's sections included all major holidays, every day of the week, and the numbers 1 through 31, allowing the reader to cross reference the exact date and have the perfect jokes at their disposal. The book started with the idea of writing some (bad) Christmas jokes that any corporate stooge would be able to use.
