Every Thursday, a different SeamlessWeb customer tells us about how he or she orders from the site. This week it’s Jesse, a West Coast Webber, but don’t confuse him with Chris. He’s an online orderer whose profile looks something like this:
Occupation: I help youngsters raise their Scholastic Aptitudes
How and When Did You Discover SeamlessWeb? Divine revelation; Summer ’06
Where Do You Use SW? Everywhere it’s legal. Mostly Los Angeles.
Favorite Kind of Food: I have a Pivenesque relationship with sushi.
Favorite Place(s) to Order From on SW? Chillllllllllllllllllllllli Thai (Ed: That’s Chilli Thai to those who want to do further research.)
Least Favorite Thing About Calling Restaurants? Post-call, I despise my apologetic tone when inquiring about paying with a credit card.
Closest Previous Brush with Internet Fame? I’ve emailed Bill Simmons on numerous occasions, and I’m positive that I’ve been a last-minute mailbag cut at least once (Law of Averages).
Favorite Celebrity Chef? Wylie Dufresne is an adorable freak.
Favorite Cartoon Growing Up? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Ed: Ah, the good old days.)
What Superpower Do You Wish You Had? It’s a three-way tie. (Ed: Would you tell HIM that?)
In the Past Year, What’s the Latest You’ve Stayed Up and Why? All night so that I could call my roommate and tell him that attending a sunrise concert is retarded.
Plans for Tonight? After reading some Rap Exegesis, I plan to complete the screenplay for a short film I’ve been working on, in which Steven Levitt and Malcolm Gladwell meet in a bar to argue theories of policing, self-promotion, and counterintuition. Levitt throws Gladwell through a plate-glass window, breaking it. Gladwell stabs Levitt with a shard of broken window. In a corner, 1975-76 New Jersey State Chess Champion and 2009 10-Page CV-possessing Econ Blogger Tyler Cowen plays chess against himself. With his dying breath, Levitt apologizes for the climate change chapter in Superfreakonomics and blames the whole thing on Stephen Dubner. A triumphant Gladwell leaves with two beautiful women. Cowen accepts his own offer of a draw and takes a thoughtful sip of a cheap tequila from Iceland that he maintains is the world’s best.
