I have met incredible people through Twitter and I have decided I need to share them — lucky you! First up, the lovely and talented Holly MacKenzie aka @stackmack.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
StackMack: Conversation, kindness and passion. If there can’t be some serious word play, I lose interest quickly regardless of the other things they’re bringing to the table. It’s cliche to say, but seeing how they treat the people around them. From the way they talk about their friends, to how they interact with taxi drivers, servers and strangers on the street, kindness owns my soul. People who are passionate about what they do or are trying to do make me swoon. Whatever you love, chase it. I love those people. I also love forearms and calves. Weird, I know.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word!)
One Chicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
StackMack: That they allow me to be exactly who I am, even when it doesn’t make sense.
One Chicklette: Your idea of happiness
StackMack: Living honestly with yourself about what you want and being brave enough to get it.
One Chicklette: Your idea of misery
StackMack: A life without adventure.
One Chicklette: Your favorite fictional character
StackMack: Currently True Blood’s Lafayette, although the series lost me once it introduced witches into the mix. Also: The Wire’s Preston “Bodie” Broadus.
One Chicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
StackMack: On the food side, avocado anything. On the drink side, I flip between Macallan and Jameson. Both neat. Really though, I’ll drink whatever you put in front of me, provided it’s not sweet.
One Chicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
StackMack: My late father’s journal, my Macbook and my iPhone/iPod/just give me something to play my music. I’m not a big “stuff” kind of person. Words and people are my deal.
One Chicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
StackMack: “How do/did you conquer your greatest fear?”
One Chicklette: Random shout out (can be a person, a web site, a favorite product or brand…anything)
StackMack: Random shout out to all of the people who are refusing to settle.
(See why I love this girl?)
