Q: Nikki, wherever did you come up with the brilliant domain name NakedCarp.com?
A: Well, the dot-com boom began just over a decade ago when… oh, you mean the actual name bit. I was thinking about this the other night, and I can’t quite remember. All I know is we were driving along on Moyer and whichever road becomes East Main Street at the very edge of Niagara Falls and Welland, and I somehow put those two words together and decided I was bored of my blog’s predecessor name, HappyIdiot.org. So that’s that, although it’s not a very good explanation. Location, location, location remains true in this case, at the very least.
Q: I hate you.
A: That isn’t very nice, and it doesn’t really align with the point of Q&A if you want my opinion, but I’m sure if you took the time to get to know me you’d find I can sit down and chit-chat with just about anyone, as long as they’re non-threatening and respectful.
Q: Do you like math?
A: You’d be shocked to discover that I really do enjoy math. In fact, if there were things in the region to be done with math that didn’t only involve accounting and estimating the size of land, I’d have gone into a field math-related instead of business, which, you know, was my dream career… moving right along.
Q: What movie do you quote the most?
A: That would have to be Billy Madison. Billy Madison and the Simpsons (the show, not the movie) are among the most quotable things in my life.
Q: I don’t remember you ever mentioning this Q&A would take place. Did anyone really ask you these questions?
