Pamela Ribon

Pamela Ribon is a bestselling author, television writer and performer. A pioneer in the blogging world, her first novel, Why Girls Are Weird, was loosely based on her extremely successful website pamie.com. The site has been nominated for a Bloggie in Lifetime Achievement, which makes her feel old. Ribon created the cult sensation and tabloid tidbit Call Us Crazy: The Anne Heche Monologues, a satire of fame, fandom and Fresno. Her two-woman show, Letters Never Sent (created with four-time Emmy winner and Jay Leno Show favorite Liz Feldman) was showcased at the 2005 HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. She has been writing in television for the past seven years, in both cable and network, including on the Emmy-award winning Samantha Who? starring Christina Applegate. Using her loyal Internet fan base, Ribon sponsors book drives for libraries in need. Over the years, pamie.com has sent thousands of books and materials to Oakland and San Diego, sponsored a Tsunami-ravaged village of schoolchildren, and helped restock the shelves of a post-Katrina Harrison County, Mississippi. Ribon’s book drive can now be found at DeweyDonationSystem.org, which has sponsored libraries from the Negril School in Jamaica to the Children’s Institute in Los Angeles.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I guess I'm at my happiest when I feel like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be at that given moment, whether it's early morning in bed reading a great book while drinking a fresh cup of hot coffee, or smashed into a packed subway in a foreign city, holding hands with the one I love. It's that feeling where there's no thought of being anywhere else. I'm describing contentment, aren't I? Maybe that's what makes me happy. Oh, whatever. I could be exhausted, freezing and hungry, but if someone's making me laugh, I promise you I'm happy.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I know this from what people say when they're mocking me. "Oh, I see."
