Let me tell you about Jen Marcus, another of my witty, fun, reality-television discussing Twitter buds.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@jenmarcus: Silly, a great sense of humor, someone who loves to have fun, outgoing, the opposite of lazy, and a kind heart.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@jenmarcus: Their supportiveness. I’m lucky to have an incredibly strong, and loyal, group of girlfriends. Some of them I’ve had since elementary and middle school. I think that’s rare.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@jenmarcus: My brother’s laugh… He’s autistic and tends to laugh at the most random moments, causing everyone else to burst out and laugh with him. It’s special.
And doing whatever I want.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@jenmarcus: Not being myself and changing for someone else.
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@jenmarcus: Lexie Grey… And now she’s dead, so does that even count?
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@jenmarcus: I love food and there aren’t many things I won’t eat. My favorite is definitely cheese. All kinds… I don’t discriminate. One of my biggest fears is being lactose intolerant and giving up cheese. That might be my other idea of misery.
My favorite thing to drink is red wine, closely followed by coffee, and a perfectly made dirty martini.
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@jenmarcus: The people I love, instagram (EVERYONE looks better instagrammed), DVR, red wine and my Teddy. Yes, I’m 26 and still sleep with my teddy bear.
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)
@jenmarcus: Thanks @BrianSpaeth for the awesome and mind boggling question. First, this is another idea of misery for me. At first, I couldn’t think of things that make me miserable and now I can – no cheese and no talking.
This challenge would be brutal, because I really don’t shut the hell up, ever. But because I really like money, I’m going to say one month, 30 days, giving me 3 million $. That would allow me to not work, and hopefully do whatever I wanted for the rest of my life. And what would I do for those 30 days of hell? I’d probably spend it on a tropical island reading books, and eating and drinking endlessly.
(Now it’s not sounding so bad, huh?)
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
@jenmarcus: If you had the opportunity to go on any reality television show, which one would you pick and why?
OneChicklette: Random shout out (can be a person, a web site, a favorite product or brand…anything)
@jenmarcus: I feel like this is an Emmy’s acceptance speech.
Person – My mom, @louisemarcus. She deserves a shout out because she’s the absolute greatest person in the world. She’s gorgeous, strong and back in the day, she dated Elvis. So when I say that my mom’s the coolest, she actually is.
Website – Besides my own, Jen’s Reality, have to give props to the second funniest website out there, Betches Love This. If you haven’t read it and you’re interested in peeing your pants today, I highly recommend it. Raunchy, rude, spot-on and hysterical.
