Every Thursday, a different SeamlessWeb customer tells us all about how he or she orders from the site. This week we have the second of two brothers from the same mother, so here’s your chance to pick favorites. His name is Jeff, his brother is Eric, and they run ItsTheReal.com, a hip-hop sketch comedy site with some pretty famous fans. Nick Cannon, anyone?
Name: Jeff Rosenthal
Occupation: Hip-Hop Sketch Comedian (Ed: See, two weeks in a row! Told you this was a popular occupation among SeamlessWeb customers.)
How and When Did You Discover SeamlessWeb? I’m like a present-day Christopher Columbus. While I wasn’t the first person to discover SeamlessWeb, I was the first person to act like I did. Lucky for the people who run Seamless, I didn’t drive off everyone who had been here before me. On a related note: Happy Columbus Day! (Ed: I don’t care what anyone says because, “In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”)
Where Do You Use SW? I don’t want to sound like someone who hangs around in Craiglist chatrooms, but I usually use SW on the internet. Sorry if that offends anyone. (Ed: Craigslist has chatrooms?!)
Favorite Kind of Food: My favorite kind of food is the kind of food that I don’t have to make and that someone delivers to my doorstep. Delivery food!
Least Favorite Kind of Food: To be honest, I’m not a fan of Indian food. However, this has nothing to do with the Christopher Columbus thing above. Unlike Chris, I can differentiate between Indians and Native Americans.
Favorite Place(s) to Order From on SW? Restaurants. Also, Malaysia Grill on the Upper West Side, but that’s more of an experience than a restaurant. (Ed: Both brothers love this place. Guess it must be something special.)
Least Favorite Thing About Calling Restaurants? AT&T has all of these commercials where they have never-ending supplies of rollover minutes: rollover minutes for the clueless dad, rollover minutes for the chatty daughter, “Rollover, Rover” minutes to give to the dog. Well, none of those rollover minutes ever go to the restaurant phone operators, who need 15 minutes of your rollover time to take down your credit card information. And that’s why I don’t use AT&T.
Closest Previous Brush with Internet Fame? Hmm…probably when I was voted SeamlessWebber of the Week for the first time. (Ed: This is Jeff’s first time as SeamlessWebber of the Week.)
Favorite Celebrity Chef? Am I a celebrity? (Ed: No.) Oh, and I’m not a chef either, so I guess I’m barely out of the running. Maybe Wylie Dufresne, just because he makes everything bagels out of ice cream and they look delicious. Now, if only wd-50 would move within delivery range…
Favorite Cartoon Growing Up? Mr. Cartoon. I had a weird childhood.
What Superpower Do You Wish You Had? To be honest, I’ve got the power already, but as a second choice, I wish I had the power to never worry about rappers beating me up for the dumb things I say on ItsTheReal.com.
In the Past Year, What’s the Latest You’ve Stayed Up and Why? Listen, Mom, I don’t need you to know what I’m doing all the time. I’M MY OWN MAN, etc. Keeping with that theme, the latest I stayed up was 11 PM after I finished all of my homework, brushed my teeth, and said my prayers that no rappers would beat me up for the dumb things I say on ItsTheReal.com.
Plans for Tonight? I have a ton of SeamlessWebber of the Week questionnaires to fill out, so I’ll probably work on those for awhile. After that, NO RULES, BECAUSE I DON’T LIVE WITH MY MOM ANYMORE! YEAH!
Now that you’ve seen both sides of the story, which brother’s got your vote? And who would you like to see next up here? E-mail us at email@example.com if you’d like to be Webber of the Week or if you’d like to suggest a friend!
