Boredwalk Community: Bitter Coffey + Cheetos With Chopsticks

Welcome to our weekly Boredwalk Community series, where we ask Boredwalk fans fun questions! Want to be featured! Shoot us an email at hello@boredwalk.com and we'll make it happen! This week we're talking to Kelly and Darek of Winooski VT:

Bitter Coffey Crew

What's your actual day job and what's your dream day job?

Kelly: During the day I work at a hospital in the Medical Group Education & Training department and nights & weekends I work as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence. My dream job would be to play percussion for Marvin Gaye from 1970 to 1975. 

Darek: I spend my days as the Content & Communications Manager at Logic Supply, an Industrial Computer company. I love it, but in a perfect world my only day-to-day responsibility would be coming up with clever taglines.

What's your biggest pet peeve?

Kelly: Hearing someone use the word "literally" incorrectly.
Darek: People who stand still at concerts.

What's a life pro tip the Boredwalk community needs to know?

Kelly: Eat Cheetos with chopsticks to keep your hands from turning orange.
Darek: (Ed. note - Darek left this blank. Apparently he has no life pro tips to share. Or he just wants all of us to fail miserably at everything we do.)

Clear up a common misconception about yourself (e.g., about your job, where you are from, or some other topic you know a lot about.)

Kelly: As much as it may appear, I am NOT the love child of Sara Gilbert and Ben Folds. 
Darek: Language is fluid. The "correct" way to say or write something often changes over time and is largely a matter of current popular opinion.

You can curse your nemesis with a minor annoyance. What do you choose?

Kelly: Sporadic dry-heaving. 
Darek: Unpredictable chronic hiccups.

Where can the rest of the Boredwalk community find you?
