Every Thursday, a different SeamlessWeb customer tells us about how he or she orders from the site. This week we have a two-for-one special with Daina and Jeff, a very SeamlessWeb couple:
Age: 34 (average)
Occupation: Actor and Attorney
How and When Did You Discover SeamlessWeb? Daina (covering Jeff’s ears): An ex introduced me to it. Jeff: Learned about it from a friend working late hours at a big law firm. (Ed: At least you both learned about it from friends.)
Where Do You Use SW? Daina: My place. Jeff: MY place. Daina: …well, I use it at work, too. So there. Jeff: So do I. Daina: …all right, then. Jeff: Good talk.
Favorite Kind of Food: Daina: Eggplant rollatini! Jeff: Just about anything with duck in it.
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Jeff: Olives, ginger, and cauliflower, not necessarily in that order. Daina: Spoiled.
Favorite Place(s) to Order From on SW? Fresh Basil’s, Aki Sushi, Aoki Japanese Restaurant, Westway Diner, Don Giovanni, Gracie’s Corner Diner, Soup Stop, Viang Ping (Ed: But which place has the best eggplant rollatini?!)
Least Favorite Thing About Calling Restaurants? Jeff and Daina (almost in unison): They tend not to get the details right on the order. Jeff: Like two different dressings for her salad. Daina: Or no ginger within a 50-mile radius of his sushi.
Closest Previous Brush with Internet Fame? Jeff: I’ve been writing for TopFive.com for ten years, I wrote a couple of issues for StellaAwards.com, and apparently there’s a website called “Jeffrey Anbinder Must Die!” (but apparently it’s about some Australian dude, so I think I’m safe) Daina: I’m on YouTube. *Self high-five*
Favorite Celebrity Chef? Jeff: James Beard. I’m old-school. Daina: Mr. Coffee.
Favorite Cartoon Growing Up? Jeff: Bugs Bunny. Daina: I’d like everyone to join me in a rousing chorus of, “Da da da da da, Inspector Gadget, da da da da da da-da, woo-woo!”
What Superpower Do You Wish You Had? Daina: The ability to function on no sleep. Jeff: The ability to fold fitted sheets. Daina: Invisibility, so I wouldn’t “be around” to do chores like that.
In the Past Year, What’s the Latest You’ve Stayed Up and Why? Jeff: 4 a.m., talking to her. Daina: My brother and I went to Las Vegas to see Garth Brooks and didn’t quite make it to sleep the night/morning we left.
Plans for Tonight? Jeff: We tend to fly by the seat of our pants when it comes to evening plans, unless there’s a Cornell hockey game. Sometimes we catch a last minute show, sometimes we order in and watch trashy reality TV [*Daina giggles*], someti… Daina: Sometimes Jeff beats Daina over and over again in Scrabble. Jeff: And sometimes she make me listen to country mus… Daina: …as punishment for beating me in Scrabble!
