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.

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)

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.
