Okay--this is a first. Controlledspin is so laid-back that she's the first reader to submit a picture of her self reclining in a chair, a lawn chair to be specific, with a light blanket over her. Haha. My kinda gal. Her humor is laid-back as well. Just see for yourself! And be sure to check out the image gallery. She sure likes her comedians!
GS: What's your motto?
CS: Laughter is the way into anyone's heart.
GS: Where are you from?
CS: I am from a small town in Central Pennsylvania. Lots of Amish people surround us here.
GS: What do you do?
CS: I work a horribly boring job in medical billing - I enter charges into an online database from printed bills to allow the company I work for to get paid faster than if the bills were mailed. Ah, the glamorous life!
GS: How would you describe your sense of humor?
CS: I think it depends--very much like my family's sense of humor. My Mom and I are famous for finding something completely hilarious at the most inopportune times, like weddings or funerals, then causing each other to laugh hysterically. My Dad and I are very similar in making the jokes right after something bad happens, then saying, "Too soon?" And my little brother and I always find something very slapstick to laugh about, so I guess it runs the gamut!
GS:Who's the cutest funny man and funny woman?
CS: I think Dane Cook wins for the men, and Sarah Silverman is really gorgeous.
GS: Who are your favorite male and female comedians?
CS: I have always had such a soft spot for Will Ferrell, but I also love Lewis Black, Brian Regan, and Jim Gaffigan. For the women, I like Wanda Sykes, Kathleen Madigan, and Caroline Rhea. I'm sorry, I can't choose just one!
GS: What's your favorite comedy of all time?
CS: I watched Ace Ventura: Pet Detective religiously when I was a teenager, and now that I am older, 40 Year Old Virgin ("F***er came outta nowhere!") and Anchorman ("I love lamp") take the cake.
GS: If your life were a comedy, what would it be?
CS: "Office Space." ("So, what would you say...you DO here?")
GS: Do you look like someone famous?
CS: Oh, heaven's no.
Controlledspin Free For All: My husband and I love to laugh together, and I think a sense of humor is the sexiest thing about any person. I feel very lucky to have found a mate with the same sense of humor I have. I think you can go through any tough time in your life and make it through successfully if you don't forget how to laugh!
(Controlledspin just chillin', Dane Cook, Sarah Silverman, Will Ferrell, Lewis Black, Brian Regan, Jim Gaffigan, Wanda Sykes, Kathleen Madigan, Caroline Rhea)
