Famous But Not Rich
So, I'm mildly famous. Leastways, I've been interviewed: http://makingamark.blogspot.com/2006/06/maggie-stiefvater-two-of-everything.html, so that makes me sort of famous. A little bit. For some reason, when I was a kid, I thought that once you got famous, you got wealthy too. You know, the phrase is "rich and famous" not "canned tuna for lunch and dinner and famous."
But now that I think of it, there are plenty of famous poor people. Mother Teresa. Ghandi. M. C. Hammer. I could be poor forever, despite my fame! Ack!
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not motivated by money. I'm motivated by canned tuna. Actually, I'm motivated by a desire to not eat canned tuna. You heard it here first. Make sure they put it in my special on the biography channel. I want one of those sexy voiceover guys too -- he has to purr it in that nice voice of his while they show still black and white shots of me eating canned tuna with my family. "But all along, Maggie knew that this life of canned meat was not for her. More importantly, she wanted better for her two wombfruit."
