What are you a big fan of that people wouldn’t necessarily guess that you’re a big fan of?
Podcasts!! If you run into me with my headphones in, I’m probably listening to The Daily, Armchair Expert, Wine and Crime, The Cut or one of my other favorite podcasts. Still come say hey to me – I’ll take my headphones out!
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
I’d want to read people’s minds. I think it would come in handy, but I’d have to be careful not to abuse the power.
What celebrity would you absolutely HAVE to go up and say something to if you saw them out and about?
This is really not a fair question. I have no “cool” when it comes to famous people, so I’d feel the need to approach all of them. But I would probably lose my mind if I ever met Dax Shepard (I’m screaming just thinking about it), Kristen Bell, Oprah, Mindy Kahling, Jennifer Lawrence or Michael Strahan.
How closely are you connected to a famous person, and who is that person?
My cousin is dating McCauley Culkin’s sister. I haven’t met her yet, but I hear she’s lovely!
What advice would you give to your younger self?
I have so many things I’d like to tell her, but I wouldn’t, because I wouldn’t want her to do anything differently. I like the way things have turned out so far.
But, if I HAVE to answer this question, I’d probably tell her not to go ice skating on January 2, 2020 because she’ll break her ankle and have to use a knee scooter for four weeks and that will be embarrassing.
You can only pick 2 out of 3 for the rest of your life: Taking a shower, brushing your teeth, or washing your clothes. Which do you pick?
Gross. But I guess taking a shower? I’d shower with my clothes on and gargle hot water. Did I find a loophole?
What would you be doing if you weren’t doing your current job?
Oh man. I’d like to say something cool like travel blogging, but I’d probably be getting my masters. In what – I’m not sure. Still figuring that out!
In a bank heist, what role would you play?
I’m the one who packs a bag full of emergency supplies – duct tape, dynamite (do you use dynamite in a bank heist?), that special spray that reveals the lasers on the ground that you have to tip-toe around, a first aid kit, and snacks. Plenty of snacks.
Also, I’m probably going to take pictures of the group to post on Instagram later. You might not want to invite me on your bank heist.
