In case you missed our Fun Fact Friday (is that a thing?!) post… We asked Ethos staff members five totally random questions.
1. What would you name your boat if you had one?
C: The Three Coconuts
E: The Crazy Katz
Z: Big Bertha
G: Ship Happens
J: Hugh Fancy Huh?
2. What’s the most useless talent you have?
C: I can find everyone’s celebrity doppelgänger. It’s a gift.
E: Remembering lyrics to my favorite songs. Old and new…once I learn them, they are in my head forever.
Z: In middle school, I was extremely good with tech decks, you know, the little skateboard things? Most people use their thumbs to pick it up, but we would use our fingers to pop the tail down and do jumps and tricks.
G: I must have been a sherpa in a past life, because I can carry so many things at once.
J: I can loudly snap my fingers on both hands – but use completely different fingers to do so.
3. What incredibly common thing have you never done?
C: I’ve never been skiing. For that matter, I’ve never engaged in any type of winter sport whatsoever.
E: I’ve never cooked so much, consistently, and eaten food at home than ever before due to the pandemic.
Z: I’ve never bought a lottery ticket.
G: I’ve never been stung by a bee.
J: I have never ordered food through a deliver service like doordash or grubhub.
4. What scene in a movie always gives you goosebumps every time you watch it?
C: The opening scene of the original Jaws of 1975 when the girl is swimming in the ocean and the freaking shark eats her!
E: In My Girl when Thomas J. dies and Vada is at the casket saying, “He can’t see without his glasses”. Gets me every time.
Z: In Hacksaw Ridge when Desmond Doss saves so many injured soldiers.
G: The end of The Breakfast Club when Judd Nelson’s character raises his fist in the air as he walks across the football field.
J: The “You Had Me at Hello” scene from Jerry Maguire.
5. What topic could you give a 20-minute presentation on without any preparation?
C: How to make the perfect standing rib roast.
E: 20 minutes? That’s a long talk! I could talk about funny things my niece says for a solid 15 minutes, then open it up to questions.
Z: Graphic design, duh!
G: I’m pretty sure I could talk for 20 minutes about how music today wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the Beatles.
J: It’s a toss up on how to make a charcuterie board or the perfect bow – no gift is complete without one!
