GiggleSugar's Reader Spotlight shines this week on grl in the world. This down-to-earth vegetarian pet lover (and wrangler!) provides some pithy one-liner comments that are often as funny as the posts themselves (not that I'm saying I'm that funny or anything...) So let's hear from grl in the world herself! And be sure to check out the image gallery after the interview.
GS: What is your motto? GITW: “If not for love, then what are we here for?” It basically sums up what I think life is all about: Loving and caring for your friends, family, pets, and the global community.
GS: Where are you from? GITW: I currently live in a small town in Ontario, Canada. However, I grew up in rural Ontario (red-neck country!) and that is what led to my strong aversions to cowboy boots, country music, and mullets!
What do you do?: GITW: Currently I stay at home pet wrangling while my boyfriend goes out and brings home the (veggie) bacon! I do the housework and most of the cooking, and try to make sure my non-vegetarian boyfriend submits to the lure of tofu at least once a week. He LOVES that ;).
GS: How would you describe your sense of humor? GITW: My sense of humour is pretty sarcastic most of the time. I can also be a big goof, especially around my siblings and my boyfriend. I’ve been known to make a bad pun every once in a while, just to make my boyfriend groan.
GS: What's your favorite GiggleSugar post? GITW: I couldn’t just pick one favorite GiggleSugar post, there have been so many I’ve really got a laugh out of! (GS: That's what we like to hear!) So my top picks would be the Taking Your Whale Tail for a Walk post and SNL clip Drew Barrymore Knows How to Work It. I also like the Kid Performs his Heart Out…at Best Buy where the boy sings the Queen song on web cam. I also LOVE all of the Pet of the Week posts. Everyone here has such adorable pets, I can’t get enough of them!
GS: Who's the cutest funny man and woman? GITW: Jon Stewart (I find his intelligence and humour very sexy ;) ), and Tina Fey from SNL.
GS: Who are your favorite comedians? GITW: Jerry Seinfeld (love his show and his stand-up routines) and Ellen DeGeneres. She has a quick wit and a sincerity I appreciate.
GS: What's your favorite comedy? GITW:My favourite comedy movie is Something About Mary. I’ve watched it over and over and I’ll never stop loving it. It’s a good mixture of funny, sweet and silly.
GS: If your life were a comedy, what would it be? GITW: I can’t think of a comedy that is like my life, maybe "The King of Queens" if you threw 7 pets into the mix!
GS: Do you ever get told you look like someone famous? GITW: I don’t think I resemble anyone famous, but I went online to a website a friend told me about (www.myheritage.com) and uploaded photos of my boyfriend and me. Apparently we have a 67% similarity to former "One Tree Hill" couple Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray. That was good for a laugh.
Free-for-all. About me: I’m a pet obsessed vegetarian. I love spending time with my friends and family. My favorite things to do are going to the beach and camping (both things I’m pining for while enduring another unending Canadian winter!) I love checking in on PopSugar, GiggleSugar, and the rest of the Sugar network during the day, and have met some really sweet people since I first joined a few months ago. Shout-out to MaryW, redsox26, and my sister moondancer77!
GS: When are you online for other readers to chat with? GITW: Since I’m home a lot, I check out the Sugar sites at least a few times a day, so feel free to stop by my GB and say “Hi!”
