Today's GiggleSugar spotlight shines on colormesticky. Combining the yin of sweet with the yang of snark, colormesticky's comments never fail to entertain. Read more about this funny animal lovin' lady! And be sure to view the gallery of images after the interview.
GS: What's your motto? CMS: I don’t really have a mantra or motto that I live by, but if I did it would probably be something along the lines of “I’ll try anything once if it won’t get me arrested.”
GS: Where are you from? CMS: I was raised in Oregon, but I moved to LA when I was 19 and I’ve been here ever since. I’ve been trying to convince my husband we should move, and maybe one day I’ll be victorious. I miss my family, and I miss having seasons.
GS: What do you do? CMS: The main reason I moved to LA was to be a professional makeup artist. I had six years of theatrical experience and went to school for special effects, then I realized I wasn’t willing to starve for my art. I worked at a bookstore for about three years, decided I wanted benefits and more money, and became an admin at a large corporation. I’ve been doing it for two and a half years, and I’m totally digging benefits, steady work, and being home by 5:00.
GS: How would you describe your sense of humor? CMS: Pleasantly eccentric.
GS: What's your favorite GiggleSugar post of all time? Your least? CMS: I’m kind of biased--my favorite is my Auggie dog’s Pet of the Week post. I love Pet of the Week, and I love most of the animal stuff. And I heart Mocha the broccoli-eating hamster! My least favorite is still that scary dog-boyfriend thing from way back when. (GS: Banner ad.) *Shiver* That ad still creeps me out.
GS: Who's the cutest funny man and woman? CMS: There are a few guys--I love Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Bill Engvall. As for a woman, I’ll go with Ellen DeGeneres. She’s hilarious and adorable, and she does it without being mean or foul.
GS: Favorite male and female comedian? CMS: Male--probably Eric Idle. I saw him speak a couple years ago, and he’s just as absurd in person. Female--Madeline Kahn. My God, was she ever funny. (GS: I totally agree with you there. She was genius in Young Frankenstein!)
GS: What's your favorite comedy of all time? CMS: Most of my favorite movies are comedies. It’s pretty hard to pick just one. I guess depending on what kind of mood I’m in, I’d say either Army of Darkness, The Princess Bride, or The Big Lebowski.
GS: If your life were a comedy, what would it be? CMS: Either an episode of South Park or The Red Green Show. Fart jokes and duct tape, that about sums it up. My brother tells me it would me more like Scrubs: “Dysfunctional and obnoxious, yet caring and devoted”. He would so be Carla.
GS: Do you ever get told you look like someone? CMS: Not anymore, but when I was younger I was always told I looked like Alanis Morisette. The first time I chopped off my hair I looked like Annette Bening.
Sticky's Free For All: My pets are my family. If you don’t want to make your pet part of your family, you probably shouldn’t have a pet. They are not playthings for amusing you or your kids- animals have feelings too. To ignore them is more than thoughtless. It’s cruel. Don’t get it if you’re not going to pay attention to it. If you do get something and it ends up being a mistake, don’t be too proud to admit defeat and let it go to someone who will make it part of the family. It will save both you and the animal a world of unhappiness. If you want something cute and fuzzy that you don’t have to train or spend time with, put out feeders for birds or squirrels. In the meantime, I think your dog wants to come in. ☺
GS: When are other GiggleSugar readers free to chat with you? CMS: Any time. I’m online at work (shhhh!) and occasionally at night. I haven’t been in the chat room in quite a while, but I always respond to private messages and check my guest book.
GS: Thanks, colormesticky!
