One person can make a difference......be that person
Who is Paul?
Nickname: None fit for print
Occupation: Meteorologist/Traffic Reporter at WRIC-TV 8
Oh, gosh…lots.I am a huge horror movie fan, and watch them all the time. I love music, especially Motown, and collect it on vinyl albums. I love to swim and used to swim competitively as well as teach lessons, and I also like to be active outdoors, whether it’s running or walking.I am also determined to someday publish a book, so I love to write fiction, and am a huge fan of reading mysteries/thrillers.
Twitter: @paulmillikenFacebook: none! (last person alive without it, and I’m very proud of that)
List 3 words that best describe you:Optimistic, Energetic, Temperamental (what do you expect…I’m on TV!!)
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? And why?
I would absolutely want to be able to read minds, because I am totally paranoid and always convinced people are plotting against me/thinking bad thoughts about me.
What is the best prank you’ve pulled on someone or was pulled on you?
When I was a young kid, I told all the other kids on my street that my parents weren’t really my parents, and that I’d been kidnapped as a baby.In retrospect, this was incredibly mean to my parents, who I love very much…but I was a very dramatic and attention-starved child
List 3 things you want to do in your lifetime:
Write/publish a novel, visit Egypt and see the pyramids, and live in a big city with mass transit so that I don’t have to own a car (I HATE DRIVING!)
Favorite Food/Meal: I love sushi and could eat it for every meal for the rest of my life.
Favorite sport: I love the Olympics, but otherwise I am totally sports ignorant. I know nothing about football, basketball, or any other sport people care about.
Favorite movie/TV show:
My favorite shows right now are “Dexter” and “True Blood” and my favorite movies are pretty much any slasher movie from the 1980s (i.e. Friday the 13thParts 1, 2, 3, etc.)
As you can see from my previous answers, I don’t feel guilty about anything!But I do sometimes get addicted to the weekly marathons of “America’s Next Top Model” on the Oxygen Network, which I wouldn’t necessarily tell people.
List 3 things you cannot live without: I could not live without my family, the Internet, or my iPod.
What is your idea of a perfect date?
The perfect date for me involves dinner and then maybe a really nice walk somewhere, like on the beach.I am a talker and think the point of a date is to get to know someone, so really any situation where I can chat and get to know all about a person is good.
What is something your friends do not know about you?
Hmmm…I’m pretty much an open book.But very few people know how much I love to sing in the car and the shower…and trust me, I sound GOOOOOOD.
Where can you be found on a sunny Saturday afternoon? Sadly, at this point in my life, I’m at work on the weekends!
What is your dream job/profession? I’d love to be a full-time fiction writer, so that I could work from home!
List anything else you would like people to know about you: I guess the important thing here is that I have a very fragile ego, which means people need to bid lots and lots of money for me to avoid giving me a total emotional breakdown JActually, I guess people should know that I’m a pretty good sport about things and have a decent sense of humor, especially about myself.
Paul's Date Package
You and a friend will get a tour of the WRIC studios on Saturday October 16 8am-9am, with a behind-the-scenes viewing of Paul’s morning broadcast.
