The Interview

I agreed to be interviewed by Monique. I guess I was feeling a little adventurous. Anyway, here goes...

The Rules
1. If you want to participate, leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.” (And your e-mail address, please.) 2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions. 3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions. 4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post. 5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

1. Have you ever been rejected by a crush?
Of course, it was my first crush on a white guy and he didn't feel women of color like that but would flirt something awful. It was a long time ago and maybe that is why I now keep my crushes under wraps until I know he is feeling me as well.

2. What does your screenname mean?
KayC is a nickname my oldest and dearest friend gave to me the first day we met. It has now been over 18 years so it apparently stuck. The Quiet Storm was my line name, I decided to to use the two together when a co-worker ironically called me Quiet Storm and had no idea of my pledge days. The two together describes me perfectly, merging the past and the present.

3. What is your greatest strength? Weakness?
My ability to see all sides of a situation. Because of that I also get my greatest weakness of over thinking things. I will seek advise and contemplate for days or weeks sometimes before I make a final decision. But once my mind is made up, that is pretty much it.

4. If someone were to go through your nightstand, what would they be surprised to find?
Every birthday, anniversary, wedding, baby shower invitation that I have received in the past eight years. I never throw that stuff away. Funny, I like a good story and they provide plenty. *I don't keep the good stuff in the night stand ;)

5. On a guy: Boxers, briefs, or boxer briefs?
Depends on his body. Boxers are sexy on some men but if his body is right, definitely boxer briefs.


  1. I hoard birthday cards! I have every one since the age of 1.

    This was such a great idea. Now we know more about you...

  2. I hoard xmas cards! How strange. Lol

    And briefs, huh? After seeing one too many men in speedos in Vegas I've decided that briefs are NOT the way to go! Lmao

    I liked this =)

  3. I don't throw anything away either! Cards & magazines are my vices...LOL!

    I love boxer briefs too!

    And thank you so much for posting the music of Jarell Johnson on Pchats!

  4. Ms.Knowitall,
    This was fun, you never know what the questions will be, but Monique was pretty tame :)

    LOL, not briefs. I don't like tighty whities. They must be boxer briefs, but only if the body is tight!

    Your simple responses are great! Keep coming back.

    I am so sentimental.

    I thought I was posting Jarell Johnson to my blog here. I was wondering why I had do it twice to make it show up. Nonetheless, he fits the PChats vibe. Not bad for my first post there. I love his song "Perfection" it could be the ultimate slow dance for me one day ;)

  5. what sorority did you pledge?

    i like this format. might have to steal it. lol

  6. 12Kyle,
    I am a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. I will be lucky 13 this year!

    You want to be interviewed? I get to pick the questions.

  7. I definitely love the blog. And boxer briefs huh? Okay...okay I see you. Was pledging a great experience for you? Because I knew some people, and they said that what they went through and the stuff that they're going through it doesn't seem like its all worth it, so I had to know from someone who's established in it.

  8. Charles,
    Welcome to the Storm! Stop in again soon.

    Pledging was a good experience for me. By "good" I mean that it taught me how to work with people from other aspects of life that were nothing like me. Don’t get me wrong, there have been many ups and downs in those 13 years.

    Greek life, as with anything else, is not for everybody. You will not get along with everyone and you will not like everyone. Such is life...

    Pledging as a process is meant to humble you and make you work as a team instead of the "I" mentality. When done right, it works. When done wrong, it can go terribly wrong.

    Many people who are "pledging" other people today have not been "pledged" themselves and they are doing things to their pledges they have not done. They are trying things just because they want to demean and belittle people and that is NOT what it is about.

    Since this has turned into another post, hit me up on email and we can talk about it :)
