Urban Bohemian's great screen name reflects her awesomely sophisticated yet whimsical comments. I love that she traffics in books and volunteers for silent film festivals! Sweet!
GS: What's your motto?
UB: I love the quote “Life is a journey. Enjoy the ride.” I heard it on a Volkswagen commercial and it resonated with me.
GS: Where are you from?
UB: I am from a town in Central Massachusetts called North Grafton. If you took out a map of Massachusetts and pinned a hole through the center of the state (minus that monkey tail where Cape Cod is), there's a good chance that you'd hit my hometown.
GS: What do you do?
UB: I work at an antiquarian bookshop that specializes in rare books and antique children's books. How sad of me that I couldn't find a deeper motto from any of these books instead of using a line from a car ad on television. And I volunteer for the city's silent film festivals here in San Francisco, CA.
GS: How would you describe your sense of humor?
UB: I love kiddie humor! Stuff that someone no older than a kindergartener would laugh at, basically. But I also appreciate good sharp humor, and a well-timed quip or dialogue that is snappy and smart always works for me. And anything campy or kitschy is fun!
GS: What's your favorite GiggleSugar post?
UB: Twin Peeps is great and makes you wonder at the same time. I also love the random videos. Any parodies that are pop-culture oriented are funny, like the Muppets, the old Batman T.V. show or High School Musical. Plus I got a cat ten months ago, so Happy Caturday makes me smile every time. My go-to article is definitely The Kitty Cat Dance video that was posted over last St. Patrick's Day. I probably play that at least once every day when I'm working!
GS: Who's the cutest funny man and funny woman?
UB: Paul Rudd is one cute funny man. He's been hot since Clueless, and has humor to throw in the mix. Isla Fisher is also really cute, and she's not afraid to put herself out on a limb for a laugh. I think Cookie Monster is quite a looker, too :-).
GS: Who are your favorite male and female comedians?
UB: Woody Allen is the man. He is so witty and neurotic. For women, I've always loved Goldie Hawn. When she was younger she had a wide-eyed wonder, and such a contagious giggle!
GS: What's your favorite comedy of all time?
UB: God, so many to name, but here's a list: My Cousin Vinny, The Full Monty, City Lights, Can't Buy Me Love, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and A Fish Called Wanda. Finally, Annie Hall and The 40-Year Old Virgin are also wonderful. Just a side comment: I love the way that both movies use humor to grasp life's tricky stepping stones. In very different ways, of course! And I think Judd Apatow is going to be our generation's Woody Allen. Mark my words! Now should you have any questions, comments, approvals, or anxieties about this list, drop me a note.
GS: If your life were a comedy, what would it be?
UB: Reality Bites. Just as someone who's just trying to get a hold on living in the real world and trying to separate what I do from who I am and fighting that quarter-life crisis in a Gen Y society. I've also been prone to dancing around to the radio at 24-hour convenience stores with my friends!
GS: Do you look like someone famous?
UB: I've been told I look like a few dark-haired, fair-skinned celebs. They're all beautiful, but I think the comparisons stop after the hair! But I once reminded someone of Anna Paquin, and that struck me. Not sure if I see that either though!
UB free for all: If you've made it this far in the article, it means that you like me, you really really like me! And congratulations! Your prize is simply a thank you from me to you for reading, only because I have nothing else on hand. Cheers, peace and have a lovely weekend! :kiss: *sigh*
Thanks Urban Bohemian!
