White Chick of the Week: Amanda Strickland

Happy Thursday dearest WWCC readers! Welcome to the latest WCOTW feature.

I've known this white chick ever since 5th grade when she checked the "yes" box in a note I wrote her asking if she would "Go with me." And although we never really went anywhere together and our passionate elementary school romance wouldn't see the akward lights of middle school, she's nontheless always been a fantastic gal.

Along with setting the bar extremely high for any future relationships with white chicks throughout my lifetime, it's been a sincere pleasure to be able to call her friend for roughly 20 years. She's everything a fabulous white chick should be—cute, sassy, genuine, sweet and funny as all get out. Plus, based on her provided photo she's exquisitely skilled in the art of overdressing for college football games.

Though it's something of an inside joke between us that will never die, I once saw her walk full speed into a sliding glass door with more grace and panache than the Queen of England could ever muster on her most spectacular days a monarch.

AND...she's named me as her back-up hubby in case we're both single when we turn 40. So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Please give a warm welcome to WWCC's newest WCTOW: Amanda Strickland.


Age: Not known (12 on some days and 60 on others). Depends on the day.

College/Major: University of South Carolina College of Journalism and Mass Communications/Public Relations

Occupation: Development Coordinator/Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Hometown: Space

A quick, interesting fact about Amanda: What is not interesting about me? I mean really?!? That is why I am WCOTW.

The Things Amanda Cherishes Most:

Chick-fil-A Combo Meal: 8-piece nuggets with every sauce. Yes, each and every sauce they have...not kidding.
Non-threatening Singer-Songwriter: Ben Bridwell (Author's note: Band of Horses front man Ben Bridwell went to our beloved Irmo High School in Columbia, your high school's face!)
Brand of Ridiculously Expensive Blue Jeans: Seven
Boutique Cupcake Flavor: German Chocolate or Red Velvet (very much a toss up)
White Chick Flick: "The Cutting Edge" or "The Notebook"
Adult Beverage of Choice: Wine and vodka...but not mixed together. Obvs.


What are some things you cherish most as a white chick? Oh, there are just too many to count. But my top three things that I cherish as a white chick are:

Sunglasses—big sunglasses. You can never have too many pairs and you know you've had a good ride with a pair when the lens cracks and falls out because you have: A). Thrown them in your purse too many times or B). They have fallen off your head so many times and are stretched out...which leads to my second thing...

Big Ass Purses—I have a huge mustard yellow Jimmy Choo at the moment that I love love love.

And what would you wear big sunglasses to and carry big ass purses to? That's right, the third thing I cherish most as a white chick—Bachelorette Parties. They are the best nights out and I really think that after people get married they should just have random Bachelorette Parties each month per fellow white chick friend.

If you could appear on any reality TV show which one would you choose and why? I would be on "Big Brother" and I would WIN! That show is like the most fascinating sociology experiment I have ever witnessed. But in all reality, I was just having a convo with my gf's that we surely would be the most entertaining reality show ever and make the most money—a day in the life of funny ass white chicks. I see a spin-off show of this blog on the horizon! (Another author's note: I would definitely be willing to discuss selling the WWCC TV rights to the highest bidder).

Your wildest dreams come true: You become world famous and have a chance to appear on Oprah, Ellen, or Live with Regis & Kelley...but only one. What did you to become famous and which talk show would you choose? Well, obviously I am famous because I won half a million dollars on "Big Brother" and I would be appearing on "Live with Regis and Kelly." I think Regis is the funniest white guy on a talk show to date. And Kelly could definitely be one of my friends. The two of them together are a delight. Oh...however, I would totally love it if Anderson Cooper were filling in for Regis the day I was on the show—he is the hottest person on CNN.

What names do you have picked out for your hypothetical children? Ok—the first one is for my girl: Addison Stokes (insert future baby daddy last name here). And the next one is from that new owl movie I went to see this past weekend—yes, I borrow my friend's children to do kid stuff! It was in 3D and it was super cool. And the little boy owl's name was Sutton—so that would be my little boy's name.
