Twitter Spotlight: Emily Brandwin

Here’s a first: a former spy in the Twitter Spotlight! Emily Brandwin who also goes by @CIASpyGirl on Twitter has also dabbled in stand up comedy as well as public relations.

Versatile? Yes.

When Emily and I met face to face for lunch in LA a few weeks ago, I tried not to obsess over her past spy work, but it was hard (at first). Fortunately she’s used to people like me acting like goofballs and patient about it. We’re still buddies.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@CIASpyGirl: My most favorite qualities in a love interest are sense of humor and talent. “Funny” and “talent” are a killer combo. I also look for generosity of spirit, intelligence, smarts (street smarts) compassion, beautiful eyes, wisdom and an ability to overlook a new purse purchase.

Your chief characteristic (one word)

@CIASpyGirl: Grateful.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@CIASpyGirl: Sense of humor! My best friend @Eminmotion is hilarious. Continue reading

I’m laughing, Matt Damon

Matt Damon is highly underrated as a comic actor.

He was great as Jason Bourne and all, but I loved him most as Carol, Liz Lemon’s pilot love interest on 30 Rock.

In case you missed Matt’s takeover of Jimmy Kimmel Live, here’s the intro.

There’s a long history between Jimmy and Matt. There’s a great recap of the relationship here.

I have my own Jimmy Kimmel history–yes, really. In 2008, I was backstage at the show for work right after Sarah Silverman’s infamous “I’m f*cking Matt Damon” launched. The people I was there with hadn’t seen the video.

So Jimmy pulled out his laptop.

Can you picture it? All of us squeezed in around to watch. People abuse the word ‘surreal’ but that moment deserved such an adjective.
