Sitcom writer Kaminsky shares her tips on getting through a trip to the fortress of evil relatively unscathed. Tips include the half-hour rule (doesn't matter what you do, if you stay for 30 minutes, it counts), identifying the players (from the prison warden to the bored housewife), surviving the classes and more.
