OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@AussaLorens: Steadfastness, Humor, Compassion, and Ambition.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@AussaLorens: All but one of my closest friends live hundreds, if not thousands, of miles away. I most appreciate the fact that despite the distance or passing of time I can always count on the fact that we will spontaneously break into “Defying Gravity” anytime we are together.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@AussaLorens: A room full of people sharing stories, possibly while eating Nutella.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@AussaLorens: Every minute of my life that has ever been spent at the DMV or the Post Office.
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@AussaLorens: Orual from “Till We Have Faces,” by C.S. Lewis—because I see all my worst parts reflected in her and yet she’s still redeamable.
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@AussaLorens: Nutella & Stella Artois
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@AussaLorens: Zola (the dog), Alex (The Boyfriend), My Passport, Books (all of them—is that cheating? I’m bad at math) and Netflix
@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this amazing question came via @tammy)
@AussaLorens: The Bloggess, of course!
OneChicklette: A question I should ask future participants
@AussaLorens: “What would you choose as your super power?”—I’d teleport. In which case I’d no longer need “My Passport” for question #8 and would replace that answer with “Nutella.”
OneChicklette: I see a trend here…
OneChicklette: Random shout out
@AussaLorens: I’d like to give a shoutout to all the people who still read my blog, against their better judgment. They empathize with my bottom-sheet-struggles, call my ex-boyfriend mean names and share the most absurd and heartwarming stories. We laugh, we cry, we win at the internet.
Update: Aussa and Boyfran got engaged. Go wish the happy couple well!
