Twitter Spotlight: Kim Windyka

Kim Windyka and I have talked on Twitter for so long that I feel like we’re already friends. But somehow we still haven’t managed to meet.

Kim recently completed her Masters degree and is now working in Marketing Communications. She also writes and blogs. This post on Nashville was a favorite.

@OneChicklette: What is your most under appreciated tweet? (this question came via @MikeKelton)

OneChicklette: Random shout out 

@kimlw: Right now, i’m all about this dating site called coffee meets bagel. Get into it!

“Isn’t it terrible about Chechnya?”

In awkward moments, I have been known to quote Bridget Jones.

“Isn’t it terrible about Chechnya?” I’d say when no other words felt right and a silence needed to be filled.

The response would either be laughter because the people around me got the reference or a double-take.

“Isn’t she clever about world affairs?”

[OK that’s how I chose to interpret the looks. WHATEVER.]

When I met Renee Zellweger at SoHo House in LA a few years ago, I actually told her about my habit. She laughed pretty hard, seemingly with sincerity.

Anyway…I guess I have to put this saying on hold for awhile.

Twitter Spotlight Jason McCool

I think you’ll have fun getting to know this DC-based musician, composer, actor, teacher and social media pro.

McCool. Yes, that is his real last name. It’s either a lot to live up to, or a great way to describe Jason. You be the judge.
