Last night, we stopped by Hurley’s near Times Square to celebrate A.J. Jacob’s latest book, The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment.
Though we arrived a bit too late to claim a free copy of Jacobs’ autobiographical tome, we did manage to score a blow up of the book’s cover, which Jacobs graciously signed. (And if you can’t read the inscription, it advises us to carry the poster — which is almost as tall as we are — around everywhere.)
We also managed to get Jacobs to open up about his next project. After conquering the mind, when he read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica front to back in The Know-It-All, and the soul — with his book The Year of Living Biblically — Jacobs said he is now ready to conquer the body.
“I have a trainer and I’ve been trying to eat healthy,” Jacobs told us. “I’ve been drinking goat’s milk because some people say that’s good for you.”
Jacobs also told us about these special shoes he’s been wearing that fit like a glove around the feet, “because some people believe you shouldn’t wear shoes.”
We can’t wait to read how that turns out.
In addition to Jacobs, we also chatted with Mediaite.com’s Rachel Sklar, Emmy-nominated “Daily Show” writer Kevin Bleyer and Twitter Wit author Nick Douglas. We also made sure to say hello to Jacobs’ son Jasper and wife Julie, who wrote a rebuttal chapter in Guinea Pig Diaries and was celebrating her ninth anniversary with A.J. last night. Congratulations all around!
