Our GiggleSugar spotlight shines this week on Moni B, shown here standing next to a chicken in a suit and a giant ear of corn (naturally). When she isn't studying her socks off at Brown University as a sociology student, she's posting witty comments on GiggleSugar. (I'm sure she has other activities to entertain her, but this is one of our faves.) Let's hear from her in her own words, and be sure to check out the gallery of images at the end of the interview.
GS: What is your motto?
MB: "I'll be everything you taught me" from "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men in memory of my high school senior English teacher. He died at the end of my first semester of my freshman year of college. He truly believed in me and treated me like I was his own daughter. I took it upon myself to do my best in his honor. (GS: What a touching tribute to his memory, Moni B! He'd be proud.)
GS:Where are you from? MB: Born and raised in Pawtucket, Rhode Island (birth of the American Industrial Revolution!) Now I'm in Providence, RI.
GS: What do you do? MB: I'm a full time college student at Brown University, candidate for a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology.
GS: How would you describe your sense of humor? MB: A little bit of sarcasm and a whole lot of silly! (GS: Can I steal that as our motto? Sounds about right!)
GS: What's your favorite GiggleSugar post? MB: Best Music Video of 2006- OK GO's "Here It Goes Again" and usually any Family Guy clip...LOVE Family Guy.
GS: Who's the cutest funny man and woman? MB: Hands down: Dane Cook. For woman it's a little harder, but definitely Drew Barrymore.
GS: Who are your favorite comedians? MB: Here are my staples: Robin Williams, Dane Cook, Greg Proops, Mitch Hedberg and Eddie Izzard.
GS: What's your favorite comedy? MB: Too many to mention. A good rule of thumb is if it has anyone from the Frat Pack, I'll dig it. Adam Sandler is also a plus. I also like, Super Troopers and Broken Lizard's Beer Fest. I'm anxiously awaiting Super Troopers 2...which reminds me...I want to go bookmark some Super Troopers clips to spread the giggles!
GS: If your life were a comedy, what would it be? MB: It would probably be based around quirky, silly things that happen to me every day. There's always something amusing that goes on, from blond moments to shared humorous moments with friends and coworkers. (GS: May I suggest Legally Blonde?)
GS: Do you ever get told you look like someone famous? MB: When I was younger, apparently I looked a little like Charlotte Church, but that's the end of it. And that was based on one person. So probably very little significance.
Free-for-all. About me: Moni B = Monica. 20 years old. College student/ dog lover/ reading enthusiast/ sushi addict/ health nut/ tech nerd/ I can't believe I'm doing this instead of doing homework for tomorrow. :-)
GS: When are you online for other readers to chat with? MB: It really varies. I have such a hectic school schedule I hop on whenever I can. Ballpark estimate: usually at night.
Thanks, Moni B!
