Agent Speed Date

The idea of speed dating is that you get 10 minutes to sit down with a prospective date and get to know them. Since we're asking our clients to speed date with you, we thought it only fair that we participate too. In that spirit, we present Agent Speed Date. A quick 10 minutes for you to get to know us. Today we'd like you to meet Jessica Faust.

"too much coffee" lol

Nice to know more about you. Thanks.

Loved this tidbit of personal info. I'd recommend Hanibal Lector. He was charming and refined, or maybe that was just Anthony Hopkins. I like Anne of Green Gables but we'd be chatting up a storm and not getting anything to eat.

Robena Grant said...

I like that your glass is more than half full.

Where would my morning be without a cup of java? Good to "meet" another fellow coffee fan. I love "Pride & Prejudice". I've read it 3 times--really good book.

Taping fingers can be very musical in the right progression (my younger brother is working on his PH.D. in musical composition, so I've picked up bits and pieces of music terminology from him).

Leslie said...

Morning person? Nah, you're the Woman-Who-Never-Sleeps! Have to up my own coffee intake just to keep up with you.

AE said...

Will you be doing this for Kim and Jessica as well?

Carrie Butler said...

If it were a metaphorical mug, instead of a glass, I doubt it’d be half full. Coffee break, anyone? ;)

Lynn(e) Schmidt said...

Edith Wharton. I couldn't agree more.

SJ Drum said...

Hmmm... I love the idea of Hannibal Lector but I would worry that he'd be having me for dinner instead of having it /with/ me.

This was by far the best "speed date" I've ever been on! Thanks!

"1/2 full and then some". Sounds good to me!

I would definitely choose Hannibal Lector...just, bring your own food and be polite-he prefers to eat rude people.
