And now we present the women who make you actually want to go in to the office. Are you a hot girl with a cool job? Write us so we can appreciate you.

How would you describe your job?
As a comedian, I've performed at colleges all around the country, in clubs from Boise to Memphis, and on military bases in Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and Djibouti. (And no, I never get tired of saying "Djibouti." Djibouti, quite frankly, is hot, dirty and full of goats).

I've also been hosting an adult spelling bee since 2004. As a spelling bee hostess, I get called a "hipster" a lot. But I don't mind: I'm just promoting orthography with as much verve and panache as possible (pardon my sesquipedalianism!) I also host math, geography, trivia and vocabulary competitions for adults.

What's the best part of your job that people don't realize?
I've developed a ridiculous vocabulary. Some favorites are "kakistocracy" (rule by evil men), "traumatropism" (when a plant grows in the direction of an injury), "oxytocia" (fast childbirth), "discalced" (without shoes, especially when applied to a monastic order), and "noumenon," defined as "thing-in-itself, Kantian idea."

What's the most annoying part of your job?
Well, public scrutiny can sometimes go wrong. Something I wrote once got linked on Fark, and an anonymous commenter said I looked "like Pee- Wee Herman in drag." It's true! I do!

What's the weirdest thing that's happened while you're working?
Once, I arrived at a comedy club in Ohio only to be told once I arrived that the first show of the night was a "teen show." In actual practice, that meant the audience was seven junior high school students, drinking soda. Most of the jokes I came with were not appropriate for this audience. It was a lot of "Clap if you hate social studies! Yeah, baby, repre-SENT!"

Is there anything particularly sexy about what you do?
Well, I like making men stammer and become unsure of themselves, and hosting a spelling bee is very efficacious in that regard. Also: I can crush a man to death with my thighs.
