When I heard "Iran," I sat up on the couch. When I heard "cleric," I sat on the edge of my seat. When I heard "boobquake" I jumped up and down high fiving my friend. When he said my name* and showed my photograph, I started screaming and flailing and even crying a little. Yes, boobquake got covered by CNN, BBC, CBC, ABC, FOX... But I'm a 22 year old geeky liberal - being on the Colbert Report is pretty much The Best Thing Ever. My friends and professors joked about it happening, but I never thought it really would.

Following my friend's suggestion, whenever I'm feeling down or defeated or overwhelmed, I am going to listen to Stephen Colbert saying "You go girl!" to me. Possibly on repeat. Wow.

Though Stephen did get the science a bit wrong, saying the Taiwan earthquake was proof, even though I later explained why it was not. Maybe he needs a certain young female scientist to explain it to him a little bit more on the show *wink wink nudge nudge* ...Okay, maybe I shouldn't push my luck, haha.

*My name is spelled McCreight, but pronounced McCrite. Yes, I know it doesn't make any dense. Blame the Irish (who, ironically, also mispronounced my name in interviews).

  5. Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes
