Who's your favorite Chicagoan, living or dead, real or fictional?
Ferris Bueller, Kanye West

What's the best meal you've eaten in Chicago?
sushi at Japonais

In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?
study kids, kids cereal, and media

Where do you get your coffee?
Starbucks

What's the last thing you saw at the theater?
King Lear at the Goodman....incredibly good

Do you give money to panhandlers?
Never

What's your drink?
Lately I've been drinking a lot of wine, usually red. Usually making me get really goofy drunk, causing me to send weird confusing text messages, and giving me a nasty headache the next day (i.e., last night).

How often do you prepare your own meals?
Once or twice during the week, but usually depends on my schedule. My meals, however, are not usually difficult to prepare. Think pasta, think frozen fish, think homemade pizza.

What's your favorite medication?
I don't like medicine. Except aspirin. For those post-red wine binge headaches or when my knee acts all crazy.

What's hanging above your sofa?
Two evil eye paintings my roommate made. They aren't really my style.

How much is too much to spend on a haircut?
I don't spend more than $50. And I think that is too much.

When's bedtime?
Generally around 11, but lately it hasn't been so easy to fall asleep.

Brunch: pro or con?
Indifferent. There are a few brunch places in my hood, but I don't really do brunch.

What's your thread count?
Strangely enough, I have no idea.

What do you hate most about living in Chicago?
The poorly designed public transportation system. And the weather.

What's your brand of jeans?
I don't think I have one favorite. I love how my Rock & Republic's make my butt look.

When's the last time you drove a car?
A few weeks ago when I had to drive to Indiana for a career fair.

Who should be the next president?
If Barack Obama runs.....

Tribune or Sun-Times?
I read both, online. Actually, if I had to pick one, I'd choose the New York Times.

Cubs or Sox?
Sox, of course. Despite their poor performance this fall, I'm a South Side girl at heart and prefer the good guys in black.

What makes someone a Chicagoan?
They say pop, dislike the suburbs, and complain about the CTA/the mayor/the weather at all times. Oh, and they've got an awesome, undefeated football team.

The brunch question gives away the origin of this query. Yuppies across midtown gather for brunch on Sundays.

You're right. Brunch hasn't really caught on here.
