Get to Know Frankie and Kenndey

A MESSAGE FROM THE TABLE: Hey guys! Since we tend to do things untraditionally around here, we’ve got some get to know us questions you might not hear too often but which will give you amazing insight into the characters we really are.  All questions were answered separately so any similar answers are just fateful coincidences. Please comment on and feel free to leave your own answers! Enjoy!

1. What three things would you bring to a deserted island with you?

Frankie:  Chocolate, pencils, a sketchbook. (assuming all basic necessities will magically appear.)

Kennedy: My phone with access to iPhone and iBooks: I use reading as a destresser, so just in case I get stressed about being on a deserted island, at least I can read. Sunscreen! As I’ve mentioned before, I’m allergic to sunlight so I need an endless supply of sunscreen with at least 100 SPF.  The cast of Scandal so that I can have them reenact my favorite scenes. Plus I would be able to feel like Kerry Washington when she has to choose between Jake and Fitz.

2. If you were a box of cereal what would you be and why?

Frankie: I would be Fruity Pebbles ’cause I love fruity Pebbles.

Kennedy: If I were a cereal, I would be Special K! Get it! Because my name is Kennedy!

3. What’s your favorite thing about being human?

Frankie: I like being able to express myself in every way humanly possible, especially regarding appearance.  I mean, if I were like a zebra or something, I would just blend right in to the herd.

Kennedy: My favorite thing about being human is that I can vocalize with people in a way they understand. Even if people speak different languages, facial expressions, body language, and voice annotation helps to understand what they are trying to communicate. With animals, you have to rely on a more difficult form of communication.

4. Who is your role model and why?

Frankie: Omigod this is too difficult… Probably Tim Burton because he is an artist, famous movie director, married to a freakin awesome woman, and scares the crap out of people.  He also works a lot with Johnny Depp which is kinda awesome. I think if someone should aspire to be like anyone, that anyone should be Tim Burton.  Did that even answer the question?

Kennedy: My role model is my mommy because we have the same personality and we know how to keep it real! My mom is an awesome mom and I want to be a mom like her when I have kids.

5. A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. He says…

Frankie: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You kill my father.  Prepare to die.

Kennedy: I can’t come up with anything creative to say.

6. What kitchen utensil are you most like?

Frankie: A blender XD

Kennedy: The kitchen utensil I am most like is a blender because I am really loud and once you’ve come in contact with me, I will shake you up and make something entirely new.

7. What is the most played song on your iPod?

Frankie: “Starstruck” by Lady Gaga

Kennedy: “Really Be (Smokin N Drinkin)” by YG.

8. I you were a boy for a day you would…

Frankie: Swag.

Kennedy: If I were a boy for a day and I still had my personality, I would try to decide which is better: boxers, briefs, or boxer briefs.

9. If you could learn to do anything what would it be?

Frankie: Lyra.  [That giant hoop thing hanging from the ceiling that is used as an aerial dance art.]  And also magic.

Kennedy: If I could learn to do anything, I would train to become a sniper.

10. If you could date any fictional character who would you date?

Frankie: Riley.  He’s one of Robin Wasserman’s supporting character creations in her Skinned series.  None of my friends know who he is, but he is perfect. And he’s basically a robot with a human mind.  But Riley’s Mech body resembles his human body, making him a little more human than the other Mech characters.  He’s very soft spoken yet strong at the same time.  And also perfect.

Kennedy: If I could date any fictional character, I would simultaneously date Alejandro, Carlos, and Luis Fuentes from the Perfect Chemistry series.

11. What is the best gift you ever received?

Frankie: ALL OF MY ANIMAL HATS!  (imposter Spirit Hoods for you name brand people)

Kennedy: The best gift I ever received was on Christmas Day when I was 10 years old and my grandma drove me to the American Girl Doll store in Chicago and I got a Just Like Me doll and I got to pick all of her outfits.

12. Give your 10 year-old self some advice.

Frankie: Just because that scarf matches your shorts AND your socks doesn’t mean you should wear it.  Oh, and learn how to spell ‘scissors’ so you don’t have to awkwardly draw them on the board when you’re sent to give a message to the other class that your teacher wants them to bring scissors today.

Kennedy: The advice I would give to my 10 year old self would be to not pick friends out of convenience, rather to choose friends that would make you a better person.

13. Where’s Waldo?

Frankie: Turn around.

Kennedy: Waldo is hidden somewhere in the forests of Fiji because he is exhausted from having people trying to find him and every vacation destination he tries to visit.

14. What’s your best trait?

Frankie: ME *_* and my inability to accept societal norms XD

Kennedy: My best trait would have to my smile because braces in grade school really did me a solid and my teeth are really straight and my calves because when I wear heels, they look pretty bangin’!

15. What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime?

Frankie: I want to write a novel…and maybe end it in a full sentence.

Kennedy: In my lifetime, the one goal I really want to accomplish is to make decisions that seem scary at the time, but look back on those decision with pride.

16. Quick, tell us the first name that comes into your mind.

Frankie: George. <–My fingers typed this; only in my head it kinda was more like Jorgé (????)

Kennedy: The first name that popped into my mind was: Chester!

17. What’s your biggest fear?

Frankie: Apparently tornadoes.  I kinda sorta cried when there was a major storm and the alarm went off in my dorm.  And I don’t really cry that easy; ask anyone at The Table.  I was terrified.  [Of course I cried in the dark, silently, behind closed doors.] wow, that sounds pathetic haha.  And like Demons and stuff that crawls out of Hell. {I watch too many scary movies}

Kennedy: My biggest fear is not doing something and later on coming to regret my decision.

18. Besides the necessities, what is one thing you could not live a day without?

Frankie: Chocolate.

Kennedy: One thing I cannot live a day without is my C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve. It has multiple purposes. It can be used for your face, lips, cuticles, elbows, knees, and face. And just to give a boost, I bought it from Bath and Body Works. Go out and discover the genius of Rose Salve!

19. What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever done/seen/eaten?

Frankie: Well, this guy on my floor got his finger chopped off by a lawn mower.  He is missing the top knuckle part and therefore has no finger print or nail on that finger. 0.0

Kennedy: The most unusual thing I have ever seen was when I came to college at Spelman. To get around Atlanta in the most efficient way, I have to take the MARTA, which is a public train. I was on the train and I about two rows behind this woman. I’m with two of my roommates, but all of a sudden the woman starts having phone sex while on the train! It was so awkward because everyone was looking at her and she just kept going. Afterward, it was funny, but in the moment, I was so embarrassed for her.

20. Say something interesting

Frankie: Frankie.

Kennedy: Something interesting. Hmmm. I went to a party called Pretty Nasty. Two fraternities from Morehouse hosted it: The Pretty Boys of Kappa Alpha Psi and the Nasty Dogs of Omega Psi Phi. I was with my friends and the Ques or men of Omega Psi Phi are notorious for being kinky in their behavior. So me and my friends are dancing and I feel in pinch on my butt and I look down and a Que was on his knees crawling around guess what?!?! He bit me on the butt! Like how gross/weird is that?! But they do that to everyone, but it doesn’t seem sanitary. And he was really cute, but that did not make up for the fact that he bit me! But I thought that was pretty interesting if I do say so myself.
