Q&A with Sydney Delosh

What is one thing people don't know about you?

I was born with an extra set of teeth and my x-rays were used in a study at the University of Michigan's Dental School.

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would you live?

London, England because I could wander around that city for years and never get bored.

What is your favorite book of all time?

The Giver by Lois Lowry. I won't even watch the movie because I'm too nervous that they've ruined the story.

What is your favorite sports team to cheer against?

Any team playing Michigan State. Go Green!

What TV or movie character best exemplifies you and why?

I think Carrie Bradshaw, but we have a lot more in common than just writing. We have curly hair, can't cook, live in tiny apartments and have both worn many embarrassing outfits that we thought looked good at the time.

What is the most embarrassing music album you've ever purchased?

Jesse McCartney's album Departure. Although, the fact that I pushed my way to the front row of that concert might be more embarrassing?

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

I just moved here so I'm still exploring all of the city's hidden gems and I haven't found a favorite place yet. But when I do, I'm sure it will serve a mean brunch.

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett's popcorn?

Starbucks coffee AND food for more variety and flavors!

What is your favorite account to follow on Twitter?

I love @humansofny. I could spend hours reading the stories on that account.
