Every week, we turn the spotlight on one of our fans to see what makes them tick. This week's fan is Alyssa Ginn and she's not messing around. That's right, she's got a very awesome and permanent Conan tattoo.
1. Please state your name, age and hometown for the record. (also, your twitter handle, if you have one)
My name is Alyssa Ginn, I'm 22, and I grew up in Chitina, AK but now live in Whittier, AK. (AK is Alaska, not Arkansas)
2. Relationship status?
?? I'm taken!
3. Favorite snack?
Mt. Dew. I know it's not really a snack but it's the only thing I consume regularly enough to be considered favorite.
4. What was the last good movie you saw or the last good song you heard?
Last good movie that I watched was one I had already seen a thousand times and already loved and it was Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. It's a great movie!
5. How long have you been Team Coco? What's your earliest Conan memory?
I feel like I've been Team Coco for probably 8-ish years and my earliest-ish memory is when Conan invited Max and Joel over for a bbq or something and he showed pictures of it on the show. "Max wore his Speedo, I wore my traditional bathing suit (Conan in full body bathing suit) and Joel dressed as a mermaid." That was years ago and it still makes me crack up every time I think of it!
I know this wasn't part of the question but I'm adding to it. My favorite memory was going to the show this past November and Conan autographing my Conan tattoo. When we left the show we drove to Atomic Tattoo on Hollywood Boulevard and got Conan's autograph permanently inked on my leg. That was a great day!
6. How do you spend a typical day?
Work. Work is the only thing typical. If it's not raining I like to spend my free time outside, basketball and hiking and such. It rains a lot.
7. Tell us something about you that no one else knows.
Mostly, my best friend Rachel knows everything but we like to look at pictures of disgusting things on google. Things like ingrown hairs, gout, and hammertoe. It's fascinating.
8. Name five things - besides Conan - that make you laugh!
My best friend Rachel Johnson
Watching my dog chase around the little red light from a laser
Birds. They don't have arms!
9. What's the one thing you would never ever do; not for a million dollars or all the chocolate in the world?
Camel spiders... I wouldn't touch one, I probably wouldn't even go to where they live whatever part of the world that may be. THEY CAN RUN UP TO TEN MILES/HOUR! And they're huge.
10. What would you like to see more of from Team Coco?
Remotes. I love when Conan goes on remotes. And I miss the beard so I'd like to see more of the beard.
SEE?! Alyssa isn't messing around. What an awesome tattoo! And lucky for her, it's summertime again, so maybe we'll get to see more of our guys in their swimwear.
Now for the rest of you folks, if YOU would like to be considered for a future Fan Friday, throw your hat into the ring by leaving a comment on this very post! If you're lucky we'll shine the spotlight on you next week! If you're not lucky, you'll get struck by lightning or something, but hopefully that won't happen.
Alright, that's all we've got. Have a good weekend!
