If you don’t know Kristen Schaal, you really should. She appeared on “Flight of the Conchords” and sometimes shows up on “The Daily Show” to talk lady business. She is funny and odd and very easy to talk to. Also, when I told her to order the fanciest drink at the coffee shop around the corner from my office she got a flat white, which is a cappuccino without the foam and which turns out to be quite delicious. My interview with her ran in Salon yesterday. This is my favorite part:
