Hands down, the best thing about working at The Frisky is our amazing readers. We so heart all of your witty, thoughtful, and informative comments—heck, we even appreciate the mean ones. Sometimes, we can’t help but wonder about the faces behind avatars. We decided to launch a weekly column where we learn all about a Frisky reader. After the jump, meet C. Munro, one of our most prolific commenters.The Frisky: Reader C. Munro please state your name for The Friskyverse:
Shaun (aka C. Munro): Shaun
The Frisky: How old are you (even though I know that question is kind of impolite)?
S: 34 for a whole month!
The Frisky: Where do you reside?
S: The vapid suburbs of North Dallas.
The Frisky: What do you do all day (other than follow The Frisky – which is totally condoned)?
S: Write, send out resumés, work, and daydream when all else fails.
The Frisky: How did you find the site?
S: Through links on CNN.com, actually. Journalism school made a news junkie out of me.
The Frisky: Relationship status?
The Frisky: What is your fave post in recent Frisky history?
S: It’s tough to pick a favorite, but the article about a male’s role in dealing with an unintended pregnancy provoked the kind of thoughtful discussion I enjoy.
The Frisky: What are your pop culture guilty pleasures?
S: The first two seasons of “The OC,” bitching about Sarah Palin, and wearing UGGs.
The Frisky: Can you share your most embarrassing dating story? We always share ours. It’s only fair.
S: Once I left a date at a restaurant. She was pushing all the wrong buttons the whole time. So finally I called the waitress over, paid the check and left her a huge tip in cash, and said to my date (right in front of the waitress), “Well, I hope you didn’t waste a pair of your good underwear on me tonight.” I walked out before the stunned expression left her face. It is probably the douchiest thing I’ve done.
The Frisky: If you were any superhero, what superhero would you be?
S: I wish I could say Batman, because he has the best superpower of all: a s**tload of money. But I’m probably more like Shaggy than any superhero. I’m goofy, cowardly and lazy unless I absolutely have to be otherwise.
The Frisky: Boxers, briefs, or boxer-briefs?
S: Cotton boxers.
The Frisky: What is your secret talent?
S: Baking. I make cookies from scratch that’ll make your knees weak.
The Frisky: If you could be anywhere right now, where would you be?
S: I have a friend in Fairfax County, Conn., whom I would very much like to visit, so if I could be anywhere I’d be hanging out with her.
The Frisky: What’s something you hope to see on The Frisky in 2010?
S: More of the kind of discussions that open up people’s perspectives and foster healthier, more respectful relationships between men and women.
