Twitter Spotlight: Washingtina

For years, we have commiserated about DC real estate, men, Metro and life in general. We have tweeted and emailed and tweeted some more.

Before I moved back to NYC, @Washingtina and I finally got to meet over a fun lunch at Matchbox. I feel dumb that it took us so long. Washingtina is a keeper.

What’s your favorite tweet that went largely unnoticed?

It’s hard to guess what makes people react to your tweets. What makes them mark it as a favorite or retweet or reply “that’s funny.”

For example, I thought this was amusing.

But some of you liked this one a lot better.

I still don’t get it. But I’m glad you tolerate me, particularly on Bachelorette nights.

I have a new chiropractor

That’s exciting, right?

Fortunately he has not put anything up my nose like Chris’ dad on The Bachelorette.

My experience with chiropractic care has been nothing but good. During my dancing years, I went more regularly.

Now I just hope to keep my back and neck feeling good. Maintenance for aches and pains that come from sitting at a desk most days, business travel and the like.

No endonasal cranial adjustments for me though, please.

Twitter Spotlight: Robert Mills

In honor of the premiere of Desiree Hartsock’s turn as The Bachelorette, I am breaking all of the Twitter Spotlight rules and posting on a Monday.

I have a great subject this time too: ABC bigwig Robert Mills agreed to answer my probing questions. On Twitter, he’s better known as @Millsy11374 and yes, that’s a pic of Millsy riding the same elephant .

Twitter Spotlight: Ashley Elgin

It’s coming: The return of Bachelorette on ABC. Desiree‘s season premieres as on May 27.

Some of you love it, some of you don’t so I’m sorry in advance. There will be a lot of Bachelorette tweeting and posting during these next few weeks.

In anticipation of the new season, I wanted to feature college student Ashley Elgin aka @BachelorExpert in the Twitter Spotlight.

Twitter Spotlight: Abby Draper

Have you met Abby Draper? No? Me either, and it’s a problem.

For now, I have to be content to follow this upbeat (but real) publicist on Twitter and enjoy her adventures in Los Angeles. I’m hoping that she might eventually inspire me to try SoulCycle.

Twitter Spotlight: Jennifer Mendelsohn

Who knew that television could bring so much fun into my Twitter life?
Journalist and ghostwriter Jennifer Mendelsohn aka CleverTitleTK and I first connected thanks to – what else? – The Bachelor. Even her Huffington Post bio mentions the show:
You can find her on Twitter (@clevertitletk), especially when the Bachelor is on.
But then we figured out that we shared a first name as well as a previous employer. Seems like we were meant to connect at some point!

Ready For Love?

Will you be watching Ready For Love when it premieres Tuesday night?

Ready

I plan to watch–even though it means being subjected to Giuliana Rancic’s blather.

I’m hoping some of my Twitter friends who watch Bachelor and Bachelorette will do so too. These shows are more fun with company whether you watch for sincere I-love-love reasons or for snark.

One of my college roommates works on Ready For Love, but alas, has not given me any juicy details.

P.S. Is it just me or do two of the three guys look like brothers in the photo above?

Twitter Spotlight: Debbie Smith

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.

Twitter Spotlight: Possessionista (aka Dana Weiss)

Lookie here: the witty and wonderful Dana Weiss has stopped by to be in the Twitter spotlight. Yep, Possessionista is here. I’d jump up and down, but I’m trying to play it cool.

Like Allison Winn Scotch, I bonded with Dana over our mutual affection for Bachelor, Bachelorette* and unadulterated snark.

*Check out her Emily Maynard interview here.

@Possessionista: I’ve been married to the same guy for 10 years, so at this point I’d say he should be funny, do laundry and have the same last name as me.

@Possessionista: Sarcastic

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without

@Possessionista: My remote control. My hair dryer. My kindle. My children. My Xanax.

 

OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant

@Possessionista: I’m not really big on asking other people questions. Can’t we just talk about me some more?

 

OneChicklette: How many days do you think you would you go without speaking a single word, if you were being paid $100,000 a day for every consecutive day you didn’t speak? (this amazing question came via @BrianSpaeth)

@Possessionista: None. My children always beat me in quiet contests.

 

OneChicklette: Random shout out (can be a person, a web site, a favorite product or brand…anything)

@Possessionista: Hi mom! (My mom always reminds me to mention her in my Emmy speech, but since I’m not winning one any time soon, this is the closest I could do.)
