Finally! The first Twitter Spotlight in ages. Hope you enjoy it.
NYCEditorGal (not her real name, obviously) is a real live book editor living working and living in – you guessed it! – New York City. Between her book chat, Bachelor viewing and Life in NYC tweets, I feel like I already know her. Hopefully we’ll meet soon.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@NYCEditorGal: A sense of humor, intelligence, kindness, loyalty, selflessness. A little bit of hotness doesn’t hurt either.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@NYCEditorGal: Open ears, honesty, wit, and overlap in mundane interests.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@NYCEditorGal: The post-workout, post-shower couch session.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@NYCEditorGal: Not being able to find a cab/get an Uber in the rain. (I live in fear of this.)
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@NYCEditorGal: Coach Eric Taylor. No question.
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@NYCEditorGal: If calories don’t count, a perfect bowl of cacio e pepe with a glass of Malbec, followed by tiramisu. Actually, if calories don’t count, let’s throw in grilled cheese with curly fries and a black & white milkshake for good measure. You know, high/low.
OneChicklette: This sounds a lot like my daily diet. Hm.
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@NYCEditorGal: My iPhone (too obvious?) and all that’s on it; Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish; FlyBarre; Papermate Sharpwriter #2 pencils; and Palmer’s cocoa butter stick because I never tire of people asking if I’m using glue as lip balm.
OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)
@NYCEditorGal: Eating at Barbuto before it closes. Is that sad? I mean, I’ve already been skydiving.
OneChicklette: Take me with you?
@NYCEditorGal: A lot of people—you, for one! Being anonymous has its cons.
OneChicklette: I can keep your secret. It’s my own secrets I rarely keep.
@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)
@NYCEditorGal: Ummmmmm maybe three hours?
OneChicklette: via @AndiLavs What was the last kind thing you did?
@NYCEditorGal: Helped my neighbor schlep her kid and stroller up a few steps.
OneChicklette: That’s so NYC. Very nice.
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
@NYCEditorGal: What’s your best we-met-on-Twitter story?
OneChicklette: Ooh, good one. I have lots of these.
OneChicklette: Random shout out
@NYCEditorGal: Trust me. Volume for days.
