Twitter Spotlight: Mine

I love getting to know new people through the approximately weekly Twitter Spotlight. But truth be told, it can be tough to keep up with.

I am going to take a few weeks to stock up on Twitter Spotlight victims lovely participants. Until then, here’s one more spotlight.


OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@1chicklette: honesty, forthrightness, trustworthiness, a kind heart and a sense of fun 

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@1chicklette: Some days, fearless. Others, uncertain. I strive for more of the former, less of the latter.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@1chicklette: Whether it’s old friends or newer friends, I’m grateful for my friends indulging my whims and tolerating my many idiosyncrasies. I am so fortunate.

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@1chicklette: A great night’s sleep (nine hours would be heaven) followed by brunch with my favorite friends. A bottomless iced latte. Reading a great book beside a beautiful pool. Lunch with my parents at Pellegrino’s.

OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@1chicklette: Sleep deprivation. Caffeine deprivation. Being on the receiving end of the silent treatment.

OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character

@1chicklette: Liz Lemon and Lizzie Bennet.

OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink

@1chicklette: My strange addiction? Lemonade. When I was a teenager, I drank so much of it that that, well, very bad things happened to the inside of my mouth. Even now, I don’t trust myself to have just one glass. My current cocktail of choice is a Manhattan. Favorite food…probably pasta with white truffles.

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without


1. My iPad which serves as reading material for the subway (thanks to @AndiLavs for reminding me of that), map, a place to take notes, you name it.

2. Cold water to drink (I panic when I don’t have a bottle in my bag)

3. A phone that also takes great pics. Current favorite: Samsung Galaxy S4.

4. A good foam pillow (I’m allergic to feathers)

5. Jo Malone body creme in blackberry and bay. If I had to live without Jo Malone, I’d go with Curel.

OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)

@1chicklette: I subscribe to this line of thinking, however I am going to Kenya in July. If I had a bucket list, that surely would have been on top.

@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life?  (this question came via @floridagirlindc)

@1chicklette: No question, it’s @JennyJohnsonHi5. Although I’d be a bit nervous about it. I also cannot believe I have never met @AestheticsGirl in spite of years of tweeting and emailing. And @courtyforrest @pnuts_mama, @JoannePistonFan@isaiahk_ and lots more.  

OneChicklette: Random shout out

@1chicklette: Anyone who has read my blog or replied to a tweet to say I made you laugh, even just once. Thank you – you make my day just about daily!

    This is so cool!!! I don’t know how you can make it allergic to feathers – I have to have my pillow. The rest of the bedding I’m negotiable on but not my pillow.

    You make me laugh lots of times but I don’t take the time to say it, so, um, I guess I’ll say it now. Thank you.
