About Maggie

Age: 27

Location: Chicago, IL

Current Job: Project management associate at an advertising agency

Dream job: Chief of Staff in the Rahm Emanuel White House/Ballerina

Girl Crush: Mindy Kaling

Guy Crush: Colin Firth

Biggest Pet Peeve: People describing the process of giving birth. I’ve heard about what happens. I get it. No need to discuss it over cocktails.

Guilty Pleasure: Eating chips and dip for dinner.

Splurge: Most recently, bras. Boring but true.

American Girl Doll you owned as a kid: Molly

American Girl Doll you wish you owned as a kid: Samantha. The two things I want to be most in life are old-fashioned and aristocratic.

Favorite Movie: The A&E version of Pride & Prejudice. (NOT the Keira Knightley version. Jane Austen would never have Mr. Darcy say a line as gag-tastic as “You have bewitched me, body and soul.”)

Favorite TV Show: Parks and Recreation.

Favorite Song: “Black or White” by Michael Jackson.

Favorite Book: Anything set in a prep school.

Least Favorite Movie: How Do You Know. This is, definitively, the worst movie ever made. And that’s coming from someone who has seen Piranha 3D.

Least Favorite TV Show: 16 and Pregnant, along with its equally tragic offspring, Teen Mom. These shows make me deeply, deeply sad.

Least Favorite Song: “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Richer

Least Favorite Book: Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps. The title says it all.

Television memory from your childhood: Watching the kids on 7th Heaven come home from school and eat fresh fruit out of this huge bowl on the counter as their after-school snack and thinking that if only my parents would keep a stock of fresh produce in our perfectly set-decorated kitchen, I would be inclined to eat that instead of a bag of Oreos when I got home from school.

Most embarrassing story: The time I peed my pants while playing a night game of Capture the Flag at an outdoor education weekend with the entire 4th grade, because I was too embarrassed to tell a teacher that I needed to go back to camp and use the bathroom. You know what’s more embarrassing than telling a teacher you need to use the bathroom? Peeing your pants. I didn’t have a lot of foresight as a child.

If you could go anywhere in the world you’ve never been before, where would it be? Argentina, because I hear you can get a steak and a bottle of red wine for, like, $10.
