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)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@SmithWit: I appreciate that my friends constantly pour courage back into my life. They also make me laugh until tears drip down my legs.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@SmithWit: Happiness = the moment when you realize you just side-stepped sadness. Your heart has no choice but to smile. It’s pure joy.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@SmithWit: I can’t imagine anything more miserable than to be trapped in a small space with cats while being forced to listen to Celine Dion or Gloria Estefan music play on loop. Horrid.
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@SmithWit: The Kardashians
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@SmithWit: I’m a simple girl. I like a bean & cheese burrito and a cold beer.
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
(1) Education: My degree in English makes me feel better about spending all day writing tweets.
(2) High-speed Internet access: Because nothing sucks like waiting for twitter to load
(3) My Puggle “The Judge”: With a declining birthrate, the U.S. deserves this dependable source for cute.
(4) Electricity: Try spending 3 days without The Bachelor, without cold beer, without Facebook or without your telephone charger. No gracias!
(5) Vodka: Because dating these days is difficult.
OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)
@SmithWit: To see my book on shelves at the local bookstore.
@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @floridagirlindc)
@SmithWit: @WilliamFHolman, former contestant on The Bachelorette. He’s hilarious and I think we’d be friends if he knew me.
@OneChicklette: What is your most under appreciated tweet? (this question came via @MikeKelton)
@SmithWit: “May I get your name? Yes, it’s “I’m The Only Person Here Waiting For Coffee.”
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
@SmithWit: If you recall, how did you come to follow @1Chicklette on Twitter?
OneChicklette: Random shout out (can be a person, your business, a web site, a favorite product or brand…anything)
@SmithWit: I write a weekly recap of The Bachelor/Bachelorette, and splash in some dating advice from time to time. I get a penny or two if you visit the site. Go here now.
