Saturday, October 20, 2007


Okay, guys. Seriously. You’d think that when J.K. Rowling was following me around a few weeks ago, eating my snacks . . . in all that time, why couldn’t she have told me something useful and interesting?

Like that Dumbledore is gay, for instance?

There’s something good and positive, something . . . oh, what’s the word I am looking for here? Oh, right. Something TRUE. But oh no. She had to tell me that book seven was a musical, that Ginny is a robot, and that Ron is imaginary. She was keeping this tidbit to herself so she could show off at Carnegie Hall.

I promise you guys, if she shows up at the kitchen window when I’m at the UK office in a few weeks time, clawing her way toward my cereal, I am going to throw the neighbor’s cat at her. Magic your way out of that one, J.K.

She delivered this news last night to a large audience of happy people, many of whom are from Scholastic—her US publisher and my new home. Luckily for me, I got to meet some of those people the day before. They had a lovely lunch for Scarlett and I. I was given a microphone and allowed, yet again, to ramble. Hopefully, they got the idea that I am a truth-teller, and I was only telling the world what J.K. told me. It’s not like I lie.

At the end of the lunch, they gave me a huge blow up of Scarlett’s cover to take home. A huge blow up of your book cover is not the best thing to walk down the street with if you are trying to be inconspicuous, but it looks GREAT in my apartment. Now Scarlett can stare at me from the other room, her eyes constantly telling me to GET BACK TO WORK and ANSWER TODAY’S QUESTIONS because it is still Ask MJ month.

I am on it.

What the--Angel is hotter than Spike. I mean, Spike did go to all that trouble to get his soul back, and I agree about the blooming onion. But Angel is hotter. ADMIT IT.

I had no idea when I said this that I would be starting a feud with the creator of my idol, Mia Thermopolis. But I can’t back down on this one. I’m throwing down!

OK so last week Meg Cabot said in her blog that you had lucnh with her and E. Lockhart. Three of the best in one room, wicked!! Can you tell us about what she was really like and her views on zombies. Anyone who reads her blog knows how she feels about vamps.

See, this makes it even more awkward. I know Meg. I don’t want to get all up in her grill about this, because I promise you, she can take me. It will not end well for me, even if she is wrong. (About this one point. Meg is generally right about most things. When she puts advice on her blog, I take it. So should you.)

Meg did not specifically say what her view on zombies was. This is wise. She must know that they could be anywhere, listening. E. Lockhart, of course, is a public enemy of zombies. When the Great Zombie War is upon us, she will be on the front lines.

Oh my goodness. Did you know that you have become a terrible, terrible influence on teenage boys? 

You must read this. 


I am pleased to be of service! What’s extra refreshing is that I know Guildford quite well. That is where the UK office is located, and where J.K. follows me around.

I would have been happy to go to the library and read the book aloud. Perhaps I should even offer this service to my handful of UK readers, as I only have one book out there. (Oscar has them all, but they are in his house, which is not a lending library.) UK friends, if you are out there, please write in and make yourselves known! Tell me what I can do for YOU.

have you seen disturbia??? omg!! after i saw that movie i went out and bought binoculers and i am totally spying on my new neighbors!! after the old ones moved, they built this huge garage thing right next to their house, actually it was BIGGER than their house, and i only see them go in there at night!! scary huh? i wonder what's in there...

I have seen Disturbia. I have been a fan and supporter of Shia LaBeouf for several years. Ask Daphne, she’ll tell you. I said, “That Shia guy is the real deal” all the way back when Holes came out. I even sat through The Battle of Shaker Heights for him.

“A star!” I went on. “He’s going to be a huge star! That kid is FUNNY. He has depth!"

Daphne just kept typing with one hand and dialing the phone with another and said “uh huh sure yeah whatever you say.” And then she added, “Isn’t he, like, twelve?”

Then he DID become a huge star, and now Daphne thinks I am a savant of stardomeness.

Also, Daphne is with me on the Spike thing. She may not have vision when it comes to stars in the making, but she knows her vampire hotness.

As for your neighbors . . . that large garage is actually a refrigerated unit to store body parts. They will claim it is for deer meat or bulk packs of hot dogs, but it is for human nuggets. MARK MY WORDS.

oh, i'm catherine by the way. in case you cared or anything.

I always care. You guys are the reason I come here.


here's my question(s): is Harrods an actual place in London, or did you make it up? or is it based on something, but you change the name? In all of your books, are the different places based on real places, or totally made up from the mind of author Maureen Johnson??

Like I said before . . . I never lie.

Harrods is incredibly real. It calls itself the biggest department store in the world, but I think that is false. It is the most confusing though, hands down. As proof of its real-ness, I offer this video of me inside of it with my agent, Daphne Unfeasible.

If you could choose any question to answer, what would you choose? Then answer it, please. =)

QUESTION: Dear mj, We, the makers of Vespas and Tazers, have gotten together with a few crazy scientists to make the Tezpa 3000, a combination Vespa-Tazer. Unlike a normal Vespa, this one does not sound like a hair drier when it runs—it GROWLS LIKE A LION. Also, it has invisible defensive shields to keep you from being killed by cabs if you are riding it down a New York Street. The handlebars are, of course, detachable pink tazers . . . but not that kind you can accidentally taze yourself with. They know you, and will immediately shut off when you are the target. In fact, they will only work on evil beings.

The Tezpa 3000 is designed to be completely fuel efficient. It is, in fact, the greenest mode of transport in the world, running on sunshine and unicorn hair and it emitting only good vibrations into the atmosphere. Worldwide use of the Tezpa could actually reverse global warming. The Tezpa comes in yellow, ice blue, pink, and mint green, and has a banana seat, a basket, and a bell. Would you like us to send you one in each color?

Are you possibly going to participate in NaNoWriMo this year?

NaNoWriMo is kind of my life. My version is called MjNoWriAllTheTime. Not because I am some kind of machine, but because this is my job. They should have some other kind of NaMo for those of us who are writers. I have been thinking on this problem, and here are some ideas.

NaNoBagzMo (National No Bags Month): This is one I have been thinking about for a while—I even mention it in Bermudez. It seems like every time I pick something up, even something as small as a container of milk, I get 60 plastic bags. I realize bags are just a small part of a larger issue of using too much packaging, but they seem like a good place to start. I wonder if I could go a month without accepting a bag. That would mean carrying some of the bags I already have with me and using them again. [It looks like my Secret Brother, Hank Green, is all over this! Check out his post on Ecogeek! Thanks, Maria, for the link!]

NaHelprMoMo (National Helper Monkey Month): This is a month in which I adopt and care for a Helper Monkey. (Free Monkey, though very much a monkey, is not a helper monkey. He is a monkey companion and consultant. There is a difference.) If you have a helper monkey you would like to volunteer for this cause, please get in touch at once!

NaDoSoScariMo (National Do Something Scary Month): Fear is our enemy. I know that is rich coming from me, as I am happy to list my many fears. But my listing them is the first step toward conquering them. Fear is the root of a lot of evils. In this month, you do something that scares you every day! It

Also, I seem to have invented a month with this Ask MJ thing. It was kind of an accident, but I am loving it!

Do you have any good ideas for a new month? Ask MJ rolls on, so please send them in! If I haven't answered one that you're asked, I still might! You never know!

I am so with you on the bag thing. Last week I went grocery shopping and got *5* things that were bagged all by themselves! The guy gave an avocado its own bag!

The illustrious Hank Green agrees with us. Check out this post from his Ecogeek blog:


It's a high-strenth nylon bag that folds up to the size of a tennis ball! You can keep it in your purse, your pocket, your glove compartment or the storage bin on your Vespa. Brilliant.

Hey Maureen. I have a question for you, and while I wish it could be a silly happy one, I'm all out of silly at the moment.

So my question is this. I just found out my parents are getting divorced. I'm...upset, to put it lightly. Unfortunately I've been sick for the past...well, since I was five really, but REALLY sick for the past three years, and when you're sick your "friends" tend to show their true colors. So basically I have none. Right now I just need to STOP THINKING. I went to the bookstore today and got a new book, but I already finished it. I need distraction! Here are the rules: I can't leave the house because A) I'm too weak from my cardiac condition and B) I have a head cold, because why do things halfway, right? So any suggestions? Books, movies, people to tazer....?

Thanks Maureen, and tell Free Monkey hello.

I've read some of your books (and loved them). I've also read your bio, and I'm surprised. I'm currently a sophomore at an all-girls Catholic high school (I miss boys so much), and I'm not really Catholic, either (there's actually a cloister of nuns on campus). So we have a bit in common, no? My question for you is: do you have any advice on getting through the next years of all-girl, nun-filled high school? A life raft of some kind for this drowning student?

P.S. I've always wanted to be a writer, and your blog is encouraging me to actually try and get there. Thank you.

I can't believe no one has commented on Dumbledore being fresh out of the closet? I think it's awesome that JKR is doing this. Dumbledore is seriously awesome, and hopefully such an amazing, lovable character will help some people see homosexuality in a different light.

Anonymous Jas said...

My friend (who is, in fact, gay) started freaking out about the Dumbledore thing. She went all "What!? Why wasn't I informed earlier?" It was mildly side-splitting.
I am sorry to say that I have no helper monkey to lend. I did once have a Curious George that I loved with all my heart, but I left him at a hockey arena one night and never saw him again. My only hope is that he found a good family to take care of him and didn't end up getting chucked in the bin.
I have no question this time, only an apology for launching into a vaguely insane rant in my last comment. I guess I'm just tired of living down here. Still, one can find beauty if one knows where to look. Sometimes, the humidity takes a break and a cold front moves in, and the wolrd seems at peace. A Florida sunrise, perhaps over a green swamp draped in mist, can be absolutely stunning. In fact, it often is.
Hannah, perhaps it's not my place to say, but I've lived with divorced parents since before I can remember. I've seen families destroyed by it, but I've also seen just as many triumph because of it. Just remember they're not doing it to hurt you, and that this may be the best way to avoid doing so. I'm sorry your friends hurt you like that. Sometimes, you just have to look for the beautiful things in life and remember that your family is there. Don't bottle in your emotions--trust me, I've experienced firsthand what it can do to you. Also remember that some families that remain "whole" become ten times more dysfunctional than those that separate.
Good luck. I really wish you all the best.

My question is, why do you go to England so much? Is it just a place to write? Does it help you when you are writing travel-ish books, like Girl at Sea and 13 Little Blue Envelopes? Why did you start going there in the first place? And how are the cats and slugs doing? :D

I'm totally with you on NaNoBagzMo, I hate that they give me a bag for every little thing. I bought some bobby pins and they put them in their own little baggie. Although, at the Wal-Mart near me they have a special container on the way out for anyone who doesn't want their bag. Just throw it in there to be recycled, which is great because most bags are used to bring stuff from store to car and car to front door, then they go to a landfill. Which is horrible. I always wave away bags, or sometimes if I remember (which I'm horrible at) I bring a canvas bag.

NaDoSoScariMo? I did something for that just 2 days ago! I had hair past my waist and I've always been in love with it and afraid of cutting it...but on Friday afternoon I cut off 15 inches for Locks of Love. I'm so glad I did it though, I like my new hair and hopefully whoever gets the wig of my old hair will love it too. Now...to work on that insane fear of sharp objects...by getting my ears cut. I may wait until the summer to do that when my best friend is visiting and I can squeeze her hand and have her distract me.

What would you do for NaDoSoScariMo?

Since you are an obvious expert on things possessing you (I read Devilish last week...BEST BOOK EVER!!) can you please explain to me why Ryan Sheckler is so..hot? (NOT to me.

You're about to be launched into space in a zombie-proof, non-hot vampire-proof, broccoli-proof spaceship, when suddenly! The news comes in that your shipmates have been involved in a non-serious accident and have injuries that prevent them from venturing spaceward for at least a month. So now you have six spaces where there should be shipmates, and to make sure you're not lonely, they say you can choose your new shipmates! But there's a restriction. You can only take two people you know in real life (qualifying as have spoken to in person at least five times), two characters from any of your books and two characters from any book not written by you. Who do you choose? And why? And for bonus points: what would you feed them when it's your turn to cook spacefood?

Dear MJ,
Congrats! You have helped influence the open eye realizations of the evils of book-banning. That's a mouth full. I was inspired to OCD over book banning due to the Bermudez (my favorite book which, trust me, is a big deal) And ending up giving a speech on it and the lives of atleast 80 people have been effected successfully! So for my question to qualify this post and all, "Have you swam in the waters of Book Banning anymore since Bartelsville? Or were you just dipping your toes in and decided the temperature isn't quite right and moved on?" Hopefully you get through that without too much confusion.

OK, I will admit, Spike was FUNNIER. Angel did brood a lot. But there was the whole incident in the bathroom for which I cannot quite forgive Spike even if he did get his soul back. But Spike is totally dead anyway. Right? So...Buffy is going to end up with A. Unless I missed something.

And what about zombies? They eat your brain. You can't date them. You have to kill them. Just like you have to kill all vampires just to be on the safe side, except Angel and I guess Spike now that he has his soul back. Except he is already dead.

Maureen, your blog is brilliant, but mentally very taxing. I have to go read Us Weekly now to recuperate.

I feel the need to inform you of another rising threat. BLIND PEOPLE. You may feel that the blind are people who, if not pitied, should at least be respected and helped. This is wrong. Even if you ignore the fact that all of them deny how their other senses have tripled, there is still the fact that they are ARMED. As the movie Daredevil and the television show Blood Ties show, those sticks that you think are for swinging ahead of onesself so that one does not walk into things, are actually designed for battle. When you place one of these in the hands of a blind person, they automatically become a ninja. The seeing world must be warned before it is too late.

If you had to make a choice between a pink tazer and a pink Vespa which would you choose and why?

I'm all for NaNoBagzMo. I take my own bags to the store and reuse then until they fall apart and have to be recycled. It's fine for going to TJ or Whole Foods, but try taking your own bag to a regular store. People look at you like you've grown a third eye or are a zombie who only wants to eat their brains or perhaps take them (the brains that is)home in your bags for later.

PS. Meg Cabot is right. Angel is way hotter than Spike. Also, he got his own show. Sure, Spike got his soul back and was awesomely funny but did he get a prime time show? Huh? Did he? No. No he did not. He had to latch on to Angel's show after Buffy got cancelled.

Why does everyone want to know exactly what the 13th envelope said?

Yeah, that's my question. 13lbe is one of my favourite books and I cannot see why people cannot connect A to B and see what it obviously said. The point, in my personal opinion, is we cannot know because that is how life rolls. Crap happens, you have to deal.
I'll get off my soapbox now. It just drives me nuts that people take things at such extreme face value and allow a concern to overshadow the rest of the novel.

I am so confused about the whole Angel/Spike thing! Which direction should I allow myself to be pulled in, which side to take?! When I was in school I had a phase of liking both. Those phases didn't overlap though, of course. That's way too much vamp lust all at once. But that was so long ago, and I don't really remember what happened in the last couple seasons of Buffy, and I never even got around to watching Angel, so how do I chose? I can't even choose a side based on how much I love you and Meg, 'cause you're both made of awesome.

Anyway, I have no idea why I thought I should post that mess of ramblings. But hey! I live in the UK and you wanted us UK-dwellers to make ourselves known to you, so, I am. Just so you know, I own all your books despite your claim that only one is out here (Seriously, is that true? Really? Why haven't they all been officially released here yet?) Anyhow, as a British fan I, much like Rebecca further up in the comments, am endlessly curious about why you have a London office. How did that come about? One would think flying back and forth fairly regularly would just make things more complicated. We all know air-travel right now is hardly fun, as used to it as you are.

P.S. My word verification is 'oioil.' I thought I'd share that with you, since it's so groovy :)
