On the second day of my internship I got to my desk to find a We Vibe vibrator, what a bizarre surprise.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? How about now?
I wanted to be an author and a talk show host. I’d still love to be a talk show host- a hybrid of Chelsea Handler and Oprah. As for my aspirations to be an author I do plan on coming out with a comedy style memoir- I’m already 500 words in.

Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter, with only 140 characters people have no choice but to get to the point.

I would love to work on the alcohol brands, like Wild Turkey. And of course I would love to work on TIFF.

The entire Pistol Annies CD “Hell on Heels”.

What’s your idea of happiness?
Happiness to me is being with my family, we’re loud and always laughing.

TV Guilty Pleasure?
Celebrity Apprentice – because, well, it’s ridiculous but also it’s for charity. And I like keeping tabs on the Donald’s hair.
