We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
Diane is my first name. Marie is my middle name. The End.
How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I’ve been a member since August of 2009. I came across Cheezburger one day back in 2006 or 2007 and found myself visiting the site every day thereafter. Everything I saw made me want to join, to be a part of this amazing, irreverent, cat-centric world. Unfortunately the laptop I had at the time was so old and temperamental it would crash if I tried to do anything but browse the pages. So I waited. The day I got my new laptop, I got on Cheezburger, created a profile, and made my first Lol.
What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
Friendliness, openness, enthusiasm. I also look for common interests and a similar sense of humor. That’s probably the best place to start when looking to make a new friend. Read the person’s profile, take a peek at the Lols they make and favorite, and see if you have any mutual Cheezfriends.
What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
Lolcats. For me, the unapologetic Crazy Cat Lady, Cheezburger will always be about the kittehs. Although…Senor GIF has been running a very close second!
What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy?
Did I mention the kittehs? Lol. The fun atmosphere, the creative energy, and being able to connect with other Crazy Cat People from around the world.
Tell us something super interesting about yourself—an embarrassing story, a quirky habit, something that will make us laugh!
I’m a total klutz. I drop nearly everything I pick up and if there’s nothing handy for me to trip over, I’ll trip over my own feet. For Christmas ’09, I ordered the kittehs a cat climber. It came unassembled. After putting it together, I decided the base was wobbly and would be best secured by pounding in a nail or two. The first whack sent the nail flying and I spent Christmas in an eye patch. No permanent damage, but like Ralphie before me, I shot my eye out!
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
I can has SUSHI?
If you could create a new feature for Cheezburger members to use on our sites what would it be, and why do we need it?
I’m going to jump on board the GIF creator bandwagon. I think a lot more people would get into animation if there were something like that available on the site.
What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
I love my work. I’m a hairstylist and makeup artist. Lately I’ve been branching out into the realm of cosplay hair and makeup. I also do volunteer work through a local organization (beach cleanups, charity drives, etc.). I’m passionate about music (gothic, industrial, darkwave, post-punk, synthpop, trip-hop, ambient, trance…) and I find any excuse I can to go out dancing.
