Paddler Spotlight -- Jenn!!

Hometown:
Diamond Bar, CA, rated one of the best cities to raise children!!
Dunking Day (birthday):
October 30
Favorite Food(s)?
I SCREAM FOR EYE CWEAM (ice cream) & MOOTHIES (smoothies)!!! But, I also love Mediterranean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, etc. I guess everything!
How long have you been paddling and who got you into Space?
About 3 months. Mista July (Scott) got me in!! He coached the water ninjas from Northrop Woodland Hills in July 2009.
Who got you into paddling and why do you do it week in and week out?
Although I'm afraid of the water and don't enjoy waking up EARLY (for a college student) during the weekends, the SDs are too freakin entertaining! Everyone is so different but meshes so well that it makes me feel the possibility of world peace.:) I also paddle to workout and lose weight; however, I think I've gained weight after dbing because I started eating like a Space Dragon.
Are you a better Paddler when you are Happy or Angry?
Probably angry?!
Favorite or notable Space Dragon moment(s)?
My first practice. I showed up to a huge crowd of people. I didn't know what to expect from practice or the team except from what Scott always told me, "you'll fit right in with the team." As we're doing our morning stretches, Janice makes her grand entrance by grabbing Tammy's boobies. :O Scott never told me the team was THIS comfortable with each other!
How do you prep yourself for a Race?
Eat light and hydrate! The combination of eating too much and anticipation makes me feel like throwing up.
Any hobbies, activities, interests outside of paddling?
1. shop, Shop, and more SHOPPING. Yes, I'm a shopaholic and I'm not afraid to admit it. Don't get me wrong, I don't buy anything expensive because I'm not loaded. When I go into a store, I dash straight to the back of the store where the sale/clearance section is. At the end of the day, it's FASHION SHOW time of all items bought!
2. FOOD! Whether it's making it or eating it! I love finding hole-in-the-walls on yelp and trying it for myself!
3. I love doing outdoorsy stuff! Things to come: hikes, pedal boating, snowboarding, rock climbing, etc. Oh oh! Anyone interested in going to a shooting range?!
4. Good ol? hanging out with friends and family  ♥
Any advice for new Paddlers?
I'm still new myself, but I would say, MAKE YOURSELF GO TO PRACTICE! I would say that waking up during wee hours on weekends is the hardest part of practice. So once you?ve dragged that hot ass to long beach, you're good to go!
Paddling-wise, any particular goals for yourself or the team?
I HAVE A DREAM to lose weight, get fit, and build endurance.
If you could change one thing about the Team, what would it be?
Not to eat at Ruby's, L&L's, or anything fatty after practice. I need to eat like a rabbit once again.
Best thing about being a Space Dragon:
Being able to be a part of the light-hearted and fun SD Family.
IF you have a single brother or sister.  What Space Dragon might you consider hooking them up with?
Grace. She gives THE BEST Chinese girl massage EVER, even better than those Chinese girls at the heaven on earth massage parlor that Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker went to (in Rush Hour 2).
Most interesting character you've met through the team?
But everyone has their own unique personality! I can't choose!
Something our SD readers don't already know about you:
I'm a big baby. I can do a wide variety of voice imitations ranging from baby to mickey mouse. Once mickey has come out, Disney will be ruined forever. Listen at your own discretion, don't say I didn't warn you.
If you were to trade any SD teammate for an RFX (Ripple) paddler, who would it be?
...but I don't want to trade anyone...can I not?
If you were to be stranded on an island with any 3 SD paddlers, who would you choose to get-by and pass the time with?
only three? fine, here they go: Janet because she seems to have traveled the world so she would know her way around, and she enjoys food just as much as I do! Jason because he's bold enough to do anything wild, funny, and stupid. He's probably your ticket out of the stranded island when he ends up doing something insanely smart.and Louise because gotta have my homegurl there to have our gangsta talk! She's also funny as hell. aw, can I have more? I still have a list going...
First thing that comes to mind when you hear the word(s):
1. pounce - Kesha
2. voluptuous - Curvayyy
3. predator - Janice, Tammy, Deej, Kat, Denise
4. prey - Allan
5. Space Dragons - Family
