I have followed @SmithWit for a long time but until I asked her to be in the Twitter Spotlight, I don’t think I knew her real name. Nuts, right?
I know her name now as well as some more factoids. Debbie is a hilarious, Austin-dwelling former NFL cheerleader with a Masters in Theology who now does stand-up. Oh! And Ellen Degeneres gave her $1000.
You should follow her on Twitter if you don’t already.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@SmithWit: I like my man to be considerate, receptive and charming, yet with an unmatched zest for life and an overall fun personality.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
My company for the event was the wonderful @eimski. She and I met through Twitter and got acquainted when she visited NYC. Without Twitter I’m not sure what would have brought together a girl from Northern Ireland living in Houston with lil ol’ me. I’m so grateful.
E looks nice. Me? Not so much. That’s life.
We treated ourselves to a stay in a luxe hotel and lounged by the pool until it became too hot. Eimski and I are both fair-skinned so we didn’t last long.
Many months after moving into Williamsburg, I *finally* made it to Fette Sau. LOVED it.
My neighbor friend, her daughter and I went on a whim, ordering barbecued meat by the pound and beer served in mason jars (well, the two adults had beer; the three-year old stuck with water). As twilight fell, we ate at a shared picnic bench and chatted with the young couple next to us.

If you like to talk about food (ingredients, restaurants, anything), check out donrockwell.com. It began as a DC-centric food discussion site, but has expanded with time.
I made some great friends through the site, and I still post – just usually about NYC spots now.

I love Joanna Goddard’s post about her family’s trip to Austin. Can’t wait to get back there in a few weeks.
