How to improve your odds of being in the Twitter Spotlight: live in DC (or have lived there previously), be named Jenna, post about food. I’m only half joking.
Jenna moved to California somewhat recently so I missed her during my DC days. I hope our paths will cross in the future though.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@CajunJen: adventurous, ambitious, loves a challenge, knows how to live a full life, keeps me laughing, keeps me grounded
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@CajunJen: Honesty & authenticity: about me, about our friendship, about themselves, and life.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@CajunJen: Laughing and crying over old stories and memories with my Louisiana family over a table of boiled seafood. Or writing while drinking coffee with a dog at my feet.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@CajunJen: Standing in really long lines. Being a podiatrist (I hate feet).
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@CajunJen: Does Laura Ingalls Wilder count as fictional? Anne of Green Gables is a close second.
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@CajunJen: Boiled crawfish on a hot day. Lattes, preferably my dad’s.
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@CajunJen: Books, chapstick, pen/paper, a dog, my Miami University hoodie I got when I first toured my campus.
OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)
@CajunJen: See a Broadway show
@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @Tammy)
@CajunJen: @brianneburrowes. We’ve been “friends” for about 5 years, and now I write for her website, @IWantHerJob. I think we’re kindred spirits.
@OneChicklette: What is your most under appreciated tweet? (this question came via @MikeKelton)
@CajunJen: Ha. Probably most of them. But I suppose there are a couple I’ve written since moving from DC to California about missing friends that I wonder if people see or care about. (Pity party alert!)
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
@CajunJen: What experience or memory would you relive again if you had the chance?
OneChicklette: Random shout out
@CajunJen: This one’s for @drew_myers, someone I started following in my first couple of years on Twitter, and then was fortunate enough to meet in person once. He’s always inspired me to live life to the fullest, and to go after my “perfect day” (not April 25th). He’s “wonderfully great.”
Note: I’ll be recovering from a red eye on Wednesday, September 25 so no new Twitter Spotlight that day.
