Twitter Spotlight: Prad Patel

I had already done a first draft of Londoner Prad Patel‘s Twitter Spotlight when something really cool happened: I got sick in London.

OK, that’s not the cool part (at all). The cool part is that Prad did a very sweet thing and sent me a care package at my London hotel.

Care package

Prad’s profile was already one of my favorites since I started featuring people I enjoy following on Twitter in that his answers were thorough and interesting and really made me think.

Twitter friends are real and don’t you doubt it.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@pradip: A sense of adventure – I’m great at causing trouble or doing things which are risky, or which most people would blink twice at. Being around someone who doesn’t have that fear and is happy to hold my hand as I take a plunge is definitely what ticks my boxes.

I love tee vee (just not British TV)

*Downton Abbey excluded.

I’ll never be one of those people who say dismissively “oh, I don’t watch television.” (Or worse, “I don’t own a television.”)

In fact, I can’t even see myself ever giving up cable even though it’s all the rage to do so in favor of some combination of Hulu and Apple TV and online…like, stuff. So much of my TV viewing is done passively–my beloved Law & Order marathons on in the background while I work, blog, sleep, read and pretty much anything else.

Here in London, I’ve been struggling to find something to have on in the background during the times when I’m at my hotel. An American might think British TV would be all Masterpiece Theatre 24/7, right? Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Adrienne Allen

Twitter Spotlights are always fun for me. I love getting to know someone I follow on Twitter.

These little interviews are even better when I learn something new about a real life friend. Today you get to meet the wonderful, whip-smart, fearless Adrienne in a special Monday edition of the Twitter Spotlight.

I adore her and think you will too.

Twitter Spotlight: Courtney Rubin

We should have met years ago–Courtney and I graduated from the same university in the same year. I knew her name from alumni magazine columns. Courtney handled our class notes some months.

I had read her writing in publications like Self, Fast Company, People and the New York Times and wondered if it was the same Courtney. Indeed it was.

But it was only through Twitter that Courtney and I finally met in person. Thanks Twitter!

Drinks on me

Sort of.

Remember when I told you about this event?

WW

Walt and Bowery Collective are doing it again. Whiskey Washback, the next edition, will take place on Friday, October 24 at the Bowery Hotel.

(AKA my favorite place.)

If you like whiskey and bourbon (or you want to learn more about both), here’s your chance: Bowery Collective is bringing back Whiskey Washback on Friday 10/24 at Bowery Hotel.

And if you think the brown spirits are a bit scary (you shouldn’t–trust me), know that there will be cocktails available in addition to straight tastes.

This awesome event will sell out so if you’re interested, get tickets here ASAP.

To get 25% off your ticket, use promo code JEN. See you there!

Twitter Spotlight: Ty Bentli

Eventually, my goal is to include the whole crew from Sarah, Ty & Mel show in the Twitter Spotlight.

I was off to a great start with Sarah. Later, I featured Samy. And now, here’s your chance to get to know Ty.

Look out, Mel. Resistance is futile.

Twitter Spotlight: Carol Blymire

I am so impressed by entrepreneurs. The courage it must take to strike out on one’s own!

Carol Blymire is one of these brave souls. She has her own business.

But thanks to Twitter I also know that she was in a Rush cover band, practices Transcendental Meditation and has a super-cute dog, Dexter.
