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!

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.

Twitter Spotlight: Captain Lee of Below Deck

First, let me get the bad news out of the way: Captain Lee is spoken for. As in married.

The enigmatic silver fox is pretty dreamy so I wasn’t all that surprised. Who doesn’t love the strong, silent type!

Anyway.

I became a fan of Bravo’s Below Deck at the gym. Marathons of Season 1 made my time on the treadmill and eliptical go by much faster. I wasn’t aware of yachtie culture and quickly got hooked on the ups and downs of crew members. Who’s flirting? Who’s fighting? And most importantly, how big was the tip?

Chartering the Ohana is out of reach for me (can you imagine how fun that would be?!), but I’m still hoping I get to meet Captain Lee for prime rib and Cabernet some day.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@CaptHLR: She needs to be my best friend, and my wife is. She also needs to be a beautiful person, not the beauty that only your eyes can see. She needs to have the beauty that radiates from within. I’m fortunate that my wife is both.

Twitter Spotlight: Samy K

When I listened to the Kane Show on Hot 99.5 during the years I lived in DC, I never thought I would have the chance to feature The one-and-only Samy in the Twitter Spotlight.

But then I connected with Sarah Fraser and fell in friend-love with her while she lived in the NYC area. Sarah has since moved back to DC where she has returned to the radio via 107.3 FM’s Sarah, Ty and Mel Show. And guess who recently joined the fun? Yep, Samy.

What’s new with you, @JunDishes?

While it hasn’t been too long since I featured @JunDishes in the Twitter Spotlight, she has been doing so much, particularly with her new venture Rice House that I was eager to bring you up to date.

From Jun, three new things:

1 – I opened the very first Korean restaurant, a takeaway joint, in Flanders: Rice House.

Aside from finances, Rice House is helping me share some of the Korean culture through food and conversations, with people here in Belgium. There are people still who associate Korea with only Kim Jong Un. Korea is about more than the division between North and South Korea. This is important to me because my son is half-Korean and at barely two-and-a-half, he recognizes already the Korean flag which adorns so much of Rice House.

At home I raise Noah as a trilingual child of mixed heritage, but Rice House now makes it easier to show that to him in a real way.

Twitter Spotlight: Daile Bree

Confession: I have a little blog crush on this week’s Twitter Spotlight participant, Daile. She’s got sass and even without makeup, she looks like this:

No makeup

Not fair, right?

She also has this adorable cat named Bixby who reminds me the darling Fitzroy Brandes.

Better to crush on Daile than to be a jealous hater, I figure.
