Q-and-A With Jenee Graham

Jan. 9, 2008

What are your plans following your senior year and graduation?
“That by far is the question of the year. I am weighing out many options like graduate school or taking an internship in Chicago, but right now I am just not really sure so I try not to think about it too much. Plus, it makes me sad… graduating means entering the real world.”

What was your first job as a child? Did you like it?
“My first job was babysitting at my church, but that was as a volunteer. My first paying job was at Papa Murphy’s and I loved it; mainly because I got free cookie dough.”

What are your favorite websites to surf?
“I have a new addiction of searching YouTube for fun clips. For all of you who don’t know there is an amazing clip of Niner (Lindsey Nyenhuis) dancing on stage at Cancun… just search `Niner Does Her Thang.'”

What celebrity would you like to have dinner with?
“All my teammates will say this is an obvious question, which it is because it would have to be T.I.”

If you were a superhero, what type of superpower would you want as your trademark?
“I think I would like to be fast as a speeding bullet because then I could get extra sleeping time before I had to be somewhere.”

Where would you go for your dream vacation?
“I would go to Brazil because the pictures I have seen always look so pretty.”

What is your favorite “board” game to play with your teammates?
“Catch Phrase is my new favorite game to play with my teammates because it is hilarious watching Abby get `mad’ at Kelsey when the buzzer goes off. It’s only because Abby used to be the worst at the game and now she thinks she is better than Kelsey so she yells at her every time the timer is about to run out.”

What is your favorite type of candy?
“That’s easy, Nerds.”

Will you have any New Year’s Resolutions?
“My New Year’s Resolution is to contribute to my team in any way that allows us to reach our basketball goals.”

Which player on the team has the coolest cell phone ring tone or song?
“Unfortunately, we have pretty boring ring tones because the only one that I can think of that has a song is Johanna and it’s No One by Alicia Keys. Although last year I sung Deck the Halls for my ring tone and I accidentally forgot to turn it off before practice. Then, Coach Bluder was talking about what we need to focus on in practice and my phone rang as loud as possible. Needless to say I was extremely embarrassed. Furthermore, Megan (Skouby) informed me that I had the lyrics wrong and it should be `Deck the Hall with boughs of holly’ and not `balls of holly.'”
