Gabe: hey kelly
Kelly: Hey, Gabe
Gabe: how’s it going?
Gabe: did you have fun last night at the videogum birthday party?
Kelly: It’s going well! I did have fun last night at the Videogum birthday party. It was a very good time and I even took home a cupcake and just ate it right before this chat.
Kelly: Did you have fun?
Kelly: That doesn’t sound very convincing
Gabe: sure i did
Kelly: That’s closer
Gabe: oh hold on
Gabe: how’s that? better?
Kelly: Oooook, that sounds even less convincing then before.
Gabe: you know what, forget it, i can’t live my life trying to figure out what YOU find convincing
Gabe: with your weird rules
Gabe: and impossible expectations
Kelly: Someone sounds like he needs to eat one of the leftover cupcakes.
Gabe: someone sounds like he ate 2 a few minutes ago
Gabe: no, it was great
Gabe: very fun
Kelly: haha, good
Gabe: jesus, GET OFF MY BACK
Gabe: can i live?
Gabe: CAN I LIVE?
Kelly: ALL I SAID WAS GOOD
Kelly: You may live, we all had fun, we have fun.
Gabe: speaking of people who live and have fun
Gabe: arnold schwarzenegger needs your help
Gabe: he’s writing his memoirs, but he doesn’t remember what happened
Kelly: Oh no!
Gabe: and he wants his biggest fans, namely you
Gabe: to come up with suggestions for what he should write about
Kelly: That’s great news!
Gabe: that’s exactly what i would call it
Gabe: “great news”
Kelly: There are so many specific events in his life that I like, know about?
Kelly: But that I don’t know everything I WANT to know about
Kelly: So this is a perfect opportunity
Gabe: like what?
Gabe: what’s a story you want to hear more about?
Kelly: Well I want to know if there were any behind the scenes pranks during the movie where he was pregnant, primarily.
Gabe: here’s what i want to know:
Gabe: how pissed were you that 9/11 delayed the release of Collateral Damage
Gabe: and who’s your favorite steroid, living or dead
Kelly: Those are pretty good, maybe you should take the front seat in working with him and his fans on this bio
Gabe: i guess my other question would be
Gabe: if you don’t know what to write your memoirs about
Gabe: have you ever considered not writing your memoirs?
Kelly: Please, Gabe
Kelly: And keep all of his great stories that he can’t even remember to HIMSELF?
Kelly: He’s a lot of things, but a selfish man he is not. I think that’s clear.
Kelly: The fact that his fans need to provide him with the stories they want to hear from him is just a slight bump in the road
Gabe: which road is that again?
Gabe: the road to Great Booksville?
Kelly: Right to the three-for-one table at Barnes and Noble
Gabe: i feel like every asshole in the world writes a memoir at this point
Gabe: so it MAKES SENSE for him to write one
Gabe: GET IT?
Gabe: why doesn’t he know what it should be about?
Gabe: Stay Tuned For My Next Move And Also Tell Me What My Next Move Is
Kelly: Maybe he is aware enough to realize that there is nothing in his life that really warrants a memoir at this point, but not aware enough to realize that other people know that too
Kelly: A sad place to be in, really
Kelly: Poor Arnold Scharzenegger
Gabe: poor guy
Gabe: The Saddest Story Ever Crowdsourced
Gabe: that will be the name of his memoir
Kelly: That is beautiful
Gabe: search for it at your global e-bookseller’s
Gabe: it’s right next to
Gabe: I’m Fired: The Kelly Conaboy Story
Kelly: I am a little less mad at Arnold Scharzenegger for crowdsourcing his memoir, though, than I am at writers who
Kelly: ask their twitter followers for information rather than looking for it themselves
Gabe: haha, who are you following on Twitter?
Kelly: I’m not going to name names, Gabe
Kelly: But PEOPLE
Kelly: At least in his case he probably just legitimately cannot think of anything to write about from his own life, and maybe thinks that it is only because he is too close to the source?
Gabe: i feel like you are being VERY generous towards Arnold Schwarzenegger’s thought process
Kelly: I’m trying to give him the benefit of the doubt
Kelly: before we start on this project together.
Gabe: “I’ve got a great memoir in me, but perhaps I’m too close to the source. What’s importnat is that the book is as good as possible, and perhaps to achieve that I need some distance.”
Kelly: Classic Arnold
Gabe: i feel like it was a little bit more like
Gabe: ME SLAP THE KEYBOARD NOW AND HIT SEND
Gabe: ME MAKE ASSISTANT SLAP THE KEYBOARD NOW AND HIT SEND
Kelly: Hahah, right.
Kelly: I was hired as a ghost writer and it is proving more difficult than I expected
Gabe: the fact that he’s so obviously not going to write the book himself
Gabe: but can’t be bothered to help someone else write the book for him
Gabe: and is even outsourcing that part of the process
makes this book One 2 Watch
Kelly: That is 4 sure
Gabe: but not 2 read
