New Correspondent: Meet Nora
Strap in, because our new Midwest correspondent is on the scene and she is a firecracker.
Nora McInerny recently relocated back to her hometown of Minneapolis from the Big Apple, and we asked her a few "Get to Know Ya" questions:
ChickAdvisor: This is often telling, so we always ask it first. What is your nickname and how did you get it?
Nora McInerny: Nicknames are tough when you’ve got a name like mine. My mother calls me Lambchop, my sister calls me Norski and my little brother calls me Brother.
The evolution of Nora, from Babar to Ray-Bans
CA: You work in advertising and marketing, but we also know writing is a lifelong dream of yours. What career did you imagine for yourself as a child?
NM: I really wanted to be a truck driver because the job combined my two main interests: road trips and unlimited access to fast food.
CA: In the spirit of the season, we're looking for solid Halloween ideas
NM: When I was 6 I wanted to be Autumn. As in, the season. Highly conceptual. There was also a huge snowstorm, so the costume that my mother painstakingly made with her bare hands was hidden underneath my snowsuit. SADFACE.
CA: What will you dress as this year?
NM: A sexy sandwich. OBVIOUSLY.
(See, readers? She. is. awesome.)
CA: What was the most surreal experience of your life?
NM: When I was 17, my dad drove our car off a cliff while on vacation in Italy. One moment I was listening to Britney Spears on my Discman and crying about my ex-boyfriend while driving to our amazing rental Villa, the next I was smashed against a car window staring down my death and praying I wouldn’t die before I got the chance to make out with an Italian stranger in Italy. Luckily, my prayers were heard.
CA: What is your favourite current fashion trend?
NM: The '90s are FINALLY BACK and it’s okay for me to dress like I’m an extra in Clarissa Explains It All.
CA: And your least favourite?
NM: As long as it doesn’t make me look fat, I’ll probably wear it.
CA: What is your spirit animal?
NM: I’m big-eyed, long-legged and easily distracted by bright lights. This means my spirit animal is a deer. Or Scarlett Johannsen.
CA: What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
NM: There is enough in this world for everyone. Enough love, enough success, enough popularity, enough whatever you are worried about. Believe in abundance and nobody’s win will ever be your loss. Okay, you can roll your eyes now.
Stay tuned for more from Nora coming soon!
