Joey as she’s known, warns us from the start: hers is one of those “disgustingly blissful” marriages. And even when Joey is speaking honestly about the messiness of being a parent, you can tell she has plenty of love and pride too.
How does she do that? Joey is just real–as well as a darn fine writer.
Get to know her here.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@Joeyfullystated: I’ve been married to integrity, honesty, kindness, and humor for almost fifteen years, so anyone else would have a tough act to follow.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@Joeyfullystated: I appreciate sincerity, humor, and compassion, but more than any of that, I like to be “gotten.”
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@Joeyfullystated: I love a bonfire on a cool Fall evening. Smell of wet leaves and burning wood, roasting weenies and s’mores with friends and family.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@Joeyfullystated: Trapped in a crowded elevator with no cell service and without a pen.
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@Joeyfullystated: Ramona Quimby
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@Joeyfullystated: Oh God, I am a foodie, and I’m never without a drink. It’s hard to choose, but there are two things I never pass up: oysters and Coca-Cola
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@Joeyfullystated: I am a comfort creature, so, laptop, soda, cigarettes, pajamas, and phone keep me pretty happy.
OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)
@Joeyfullystated: I don’t have a bucket list. I would love to travel more, and I would love to finish a book, but I try to enjoy life as it comes.
@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @Tammy)
@Joeyfullystated: I’m not sure. Rather than pick someone whose work I enjoy, but I don’t know, I’d rather meet my friend Tracey, who would surely be thrilled to meet me as well.
@OneChicklette: How many days do you think you would you go without speaking a single word, if you were being paid $100,000 a day for every consecutive day you didn’t speak? (this amazing question came via @BrianSpaeth)
@Joeyfullystated: I’d like to say I’d make it a day, but I don’t know if I could. I’d aim for three.
OneChicklette: via @AndiLavs What was the last kind thing you did?
@Joeyfullystated: I got up at five o’clock in the morning to press my husband’s shirt and make his coffee.
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
@Joeyfullystated: If your personality was a brand, what would your logo look like?
OneChicklette: Random shout out
@Joeyfullystated: Shout out to people who can spell. Those people are my favorite!
