Hi. It's Hilarie. Thanks for checking out my part of the web page. If you're snooping around here, it's probably because you want some good dirt, so I'm not going to waste your time with lame stuff like where I went to school and how many fish are currently in my tank at home. Just know I went to college and I have fish.
I grew up in beautiful Virginia--one of five kids. One time, my brother Billy and I decided to play a trick on our youngest brother Conrad because he had hit me in the eye. So we took paper towels and colored a big red patch with markers on them and then taped the "bandage" to my eye. We told Conrad he had poked my eye out and he cried. But when he found out it was a trick, he chased us around the house with a real baseball bat and then beat us up. he was three...Billy and I were seven and nine, respectively.
Needless to say I come from a very tight family. And we all have a great respect for supermarkets. The local place is called Giant. I don't know if you have Giants in your town, but if you don't, call your local politician and demand one. My mother worked at the Giant as a teenager. My brother Billy ruled the Giant pharmacy in my town. He was even the first part-time employee of the month. My brother John took his place once he left for college. And yes, believe it or not, I was working at the Giant until I got my job at MTV. I even have my nametag still.
Actually, working at a supermarket and working at MTV are very similar. In both instances, the freshest product must be delivered, whether it's the new Jay-Z or a ripe bushel of bananas. And in both places, order is very important. You don't see flour in the ice cream aisle, do you? And on TRL, you don't see the number one video before the number five pick. Actually, those are the only parallels that I can draw, but I believe they're sufficient. Again, thanks for checking in and I hope you walk away feeling like you know me now.
Your friend Hil
