How can you not love someone whose many mottos includes, "Yay! Go me!" I think we have a few things to learn from Sweetpeabrina, who is an actual school teacher, so let the schooling begin!
GS: What’s your motto?
SPB: I have a couple. “In vino veritas.” Mainly because I have this bad habit of drinking wine (mmm... Pinot Noir) and telling people what I truly think. “A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a woman perfected without trials“ was my mantra that helped me get through my divorce to Number 1 Douchebag. And the one that I say at least twice a day, “Yay! Go me!”
GS: Where are you from?
SPB: Atlanta, GA – I love it here. I’ll always be a southern girl at heart. Lately I’ve been aching to get out! I know the grass is always greener (or scorched, in this case) on the other side, but my BFF is in San Diego and my brother is in San Francisco. I need to be in California. My parents are from St. Croix and St. Thomas, USVI, so I also like to claim that as home even though I wasn’t born there.
GS: What do you do?
SPB: I’m a teacher—8th grade, Physical Science. Most people look at me like I’m insane when I say that I really like teaching 13 and 14-year-olds. They are soooo melodramatic. Everything is such a big deal to them. They have this strange sense of humor that makes me laugh. One of my coworkers and I love to find their notes that they write to each other. If we can find one of those notebooks that they write in then pass back and forth, it makes our day. Ohh! My 7th period has me hooked on Potter Puppet Pals.
GS: How would you describe your sense of humor?
SPB: My sense of humor is very sophomoric. I’m really silly and goofy. Much to the amusement of my friends, when I get really excited about something funny and try to tell them about it, I tend to get my words mixed up and out of order. I think that came from when I had my tongue pierced. My brain moves too fast for my mouth.
GS: What’s your favorite GiggleSugar post?
SPB: Cute Alert: French Bulldog Pups! I melt every time I see this! I love the WTFs and the
GS: Who’s the cutest funny man and funny woman?
SPB: I’d invite Dane Cook over any night of the week. I’m not sure if you can count Drew Barrymore, but she is funny and hot.
GS: Who are your favorite male and female comedians?
SPB: I really like stand up comedians. This will probably change but in the men category I love Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, Jim Carey, Ron White, George Lopez, and Mitch Fatel (because he likes panties). For the ladies, I like Tammy Pescatelli (because she has class), Margaret Cho, Wanda Sykes, Kathy Griffin, Ellen DeGeneres.
GS: What’s your favorite comedy of all time?
SPB: It’s a tie between Office Space and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. If you haven’t seen either of them, you must rent them this weekend. Have you seen my stapler?
GS: If your life were a comedy, what would it be?
SPB: Definitely Clueless minus the ditziness and the falling in love with my ex-stepbrother part. I don’t have a stepbrother.
GS: Do you look like someone famous?
SPB: When I was little, I looked just like Rudy Huxtable! Now, not so much. I like to imagine I look like Halle Berry, but that’s only extreme wishful thinking!
SPB Free-for-all: I think I’m in danger of becoming addicted to the internet and books. I spend my free time surfing and reading. I’m addicted to HyperSugar. I’m absolutely nuts for LOL Cats. Maybe it’s because I really like my own cat, Gadget, who is curled up next to me right now. I also read a lot. I go through about two books a week, which totally sucks because books can get expensive. I could go to the library but bookstores are so much more fun. I’m totally into Monopoly. I think people’s true colors come out when they play Monopoly. The sweetest person will cuss you out when they land on your properties with hotels. Um.. there’s so much more to add but I’ll stop here. Yay! Go me!
