Boredwalk Community: Irish Castles and Viking Shield Maiden Stuff

What's Kraken Shirt

Welcome to our weekly Boredwalk Community series, where we ask Boredwalk fans fun questions! This week we're talking to Amanda P. of Platte City MO, showing off an What's Kraken shirt.

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

I'm a Software Quality Engineer for an auto insurance company. I would love to eventually be a more consistent and more frequent conference speaker (I have 3 different talks so far this year). And if not that, I want to be a professional cosplayer — mostly viking shield maiden stuff. (Ed. note: that sounds pretty epic!)

2. You can curse your nemesis with a minor annoyance for eternity; what do you choose?

That tickle in the back of your throat where you don't really need to cough and clearing your throat or drinking some water doesn't help either. What's more annoying than that? (Savage!)

3. What experience do you most want to cross off your bucket list?

OK, so there are two things:
1. Speak at a conference that is held at Churchill College in Cambridge.
2. Travel around Ireland and see everything and stay in old castles.

4. Where can the rest of the Boredwalk community find you?

You're most likely to find me on Twitter @theqadiva.
