Since Diablo Cody's movie was mentioned on the Drift a few days ago by Megan I thought I'd link to her story here in which she explains how she got that awesome name of hers (no, it wasn't when she was still stripping for a living).
Just for reference, Cody wrote Jason Reitman's Juno after being offered the gig via her blog. Juno is making its tiny presence felt considerably during this awards season (4 Academy nominations including Best Picture) - propelling Cody's career to red hot.
Cody is also embarking on a periodic column for Entertainment Weekly (which I read cover to cover regularly). In her second witty installment she picks out women characters in films that she's taken a shining to despite their vanity. "Since when is a dab of beeswax a concession to the patriarchy?"
