Twitter Spotlight: Joanne Ross

Joanne is one of the nicest people I’ve never met. If you’re on Twitter, you know what I mean. Twitter friends are real.

Joanne, a lover of corgis and the Detroit Pistons, and I first connected thanks to NBA Twitter, but now she feels like a real life buddy.

One day soon, I hope, we’ll get to meet. For now, we’ll make do with a Twitter Spotlight.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@JoannePistonFan: Dog lover, sports fan, and I love when people are able to laugh at themselves when something goes wrong.

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@JoannePistonFan: Pragmatic.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@JoannePistonFan: My friends allow me to feel okay being myself–my weird, WEIRD self–, and will listen to anything from a serious rant to me giggling like a fool over an episode of Archer.

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@JoannePistonFan: I love the thought of an evening with my husband and dog, good food, and watching a Detroit sports team win.

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

@JoannePistonFan: Fajitas and coffee, but not together. I would prefer a margarita with fajitas.

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without

@JoannePistonFan: My iPhone, lip balm, DVR, coffeemaker, and does my dog count as a thing? It feels bizarre calling my dog a thing, so I will add my Pistons hat.

Real estate: what $2000/month will get you (via @curbed)

I’m really enjoying Curbed.com’s renters’ week content, including this round up of what $2000 per month in rent will get you in various American cities

Even though looking at the NYC option makes those of us paying high rents feel a little silly. And poor.

$2000 per month goes far in Detroit.

But NYC is home. I don’t even know what I’d do with more space. Honest.
