Thai Food & Superheroines
Today was the IAmElemental interview and I can’t thank Julie enough for being accomodating despite her hectic schedule. She emailed me and suggested we go to Pure Thai Cookhouse on 9th Avenue (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU LOVE THAI). I agreed, despite never having Thai food before.
I arrived, quite taken by the place as it is small as most places are in New York and we sat down and ordered. We started talking and she struck me as a woman with conviction. She told me about the company, working in the toy industry, Hasbro (and how they didn’t give me an interview), Mattel (and how they never got back to me), and how the “Less hooters, more heroines” catchphrase came to being. We even talked about Wonder Woman.
I told her how I appreciated her company’s existence which you should totally check out because really, it’s awesome. iamelemental.com is the thing you should check out. Do it, I’ll wait.
Meanwhile, the food was amazing, but there was SO MUCH. I couldn’t eat it all. We decided to walk together afterward and she said if I had anymore questions, I could definitely email her. So it was a very productive hour and I found out a lot I could use for my thesis.
I also emailed AJ Mendez Brooks agent for an interview and how to hear from her in the next few weeks before Crazy is My Superpower comes out. Think positive thoughts for me on that front.
