Andi Buchanan's new anthology out this month
It's a Boy came out last November. Literary Mama: Reading for the Maternally Inclined came out this month. That's a collection of work from the online literary magazine LiteraryMama.com, which she co-founded. It's a Girl will be coming out in April.
So... does this woman have time to watch much TV? Does she ever run to the "boob tube" for escape? (Is watching TV like breastfeeding? Maybe it's not so nurturing, but it does calm one down... except when you're watching Nip/Tuck or Twilight Zone reruns...) She's up next on the Girlfriend's Cyber Circuit, and I had the chance to ask her about her TV watching proclivities.
Are you a TV watcher?
I do watch some TV, though not a lot. Most of the TV I watch is kids' TV, since I have two little kids, and my "grown-up" time, when I'd ordinarily watch TV, is mostly spent working.
What's your favorite show ever?
I love Arrested Development and The Daily Show.
What TV character (past or present) do you identify with most?
I guess since I have two little kids, the character I most relate to at this point in my life is Steve from Blue's Clues (not Joe -- we're old-school Blue's Clues fans in this household!). A guy, surrounded by younger characters, who has to write everything down to explain his own world to himself? I can relate.
