The Not So Mean Girl

I am so excited to do a little Q & A with the real mean girl today.  Yes, this title is the first thing you read when you get to her blog, but why don't we call her by her first name today, Christin. She is not really that mean.  She just says things we all wish we had the guts to say aloud.  So to those of you who have not read her blog or shied away from it because of the title, fear not, for today I will demonstrate just how similar she is to you and me. Let's start with some pictures shall we?

I was personally floored with how amazingly well she can rock three completely different hairstyles.  I don't know if I could say the same.  Nor do I know if we'll ever find out.

So anyways, now you've "seen" Christin.  On to my Q&A.

How did you get the name of your blog?
I had a lot, ok like two, blogs before trmg and they had lame names. So lame I can't even remember them. I know I have a xanga that's still up that is kinda hilarious. But, I digress. One of my friend's ex-boyfriends starting calling me mean girl after I told him he was a douchelord. It wasn't mean, it was honest. This same friend encouraged me to start a blog. So I did. But mean girl wasn't available nor was the mean girl, but the real mean girl was.

Now I regret the name because a lot of people don't get it and think I'm a total jerk all the time when in reality I'm not that mean. I just do things that you wish you had the nerve to do.

What do you do for a living? Give us an inside peek at a normal day for you!
I don't think you want to know. Haha. I work in advertising on the account side. It is a lot of work and I work crazy hours and I'm always tired.  I do not have a normal day. I get a zillion emails and my phone is always ringing. I have meetings and reports and all sorts of insanity. You all should come shadow me for a day. It would be f-u-n.

What is your dream job?
No job? Kidding. I want to have a show, and I'm undecided if I want a sit-com or a talk show. But right now, I'd love to be a writer - for a show. Tina Fey, if you're reading this, please have your people call my people. I'd also love to write a book.

How long have you been dating this amazing BF of yours willing to help with those fabulous gold stripes?
9 years on and off. We met in the spring of 2003 in college. Awwww.

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in the glorious suburbs of San Francisco. You know the movie Mrs. Doubtfire? Remember the restaurant they go to for the mom's birthday? Bridges? Yep. That restaurant is not in San Francisco but is in Danville where I'm from. We're kind of a big deal.  [Carly talking now...she's telling the truth. See?] 

Where did you go to school?
Hooray, Hurrah, Mizzou, Mizzou! Or the University of Missouri to the lay person.


Chick flick or thriller? Comedy
Sweet or salty?
Why can't I have both? Are you greedy or something?

Jennifer or Angelina?
To be honest, I dislike them both for different reasons. I think Jen is turning into a bit of a sad state of affairs and Angelina is a home wrecking whore. Yea, I said it. She's a whore.

Britney or Christina?
Britney. All day. Every day.

Backstreet Boys or N*Sync?
Backstreet's back, alright!

So there you have it folks. How great is Chistin? She is not mean, but rather funny hilarious. Happy to have introduced you somewhat over the web today.  I hope you'll pop over to her blog and laugh along with her and of course me. And seriously, Tina Fey are you reading?!

Love it, love it, love it! Christin is hilarious & most definitely needs a talk show/to write a book. Someday, she will be famous (hellooo, Tina Fey!) and we will all be like, "OMG I READ HER BLOG". Yeah... she will definitely be famous.
