20 Questions with Marisa Colucci

Have you ever wondered what would happen if a group of children were left to fend for themselves for a day? If so, just come observe the Fish office when Marisa goes on vacation. Full disclosure… it’s not pretty. As our executive assistant/office manager extraordinaire, Marisa has mastered the art of keeping us all in check. I also think it’s safe to say that without her taking on the role of project manager for the construction of our new building, Lorne would have likely checked himself into the loony bin months ago. Dealing with us on a daily basis is no easy task, which explains Marisa’s affinity for yoga. Here’s what else you should know about the real MVP of Fish.

Work you and personal you likely differ slightly. So how would your friends describe you?
Optimally organized and crazy clean. Not much difference there, haha!

And how would Lorne describe you?
“How did I survive before you?” would be an accurate description.

Bookworm or TV addict?
Can I be addicted to both Harry Potter and Parks and Recreation? Well, I am. If I had to choose, bookworm.

What’s your funniest Fish memory?
When Lorne caught Jenna and I in the middle of turning our water cooler into a cocktail cooler. Ah, Summer Fun.

If you were Lorne for a day, what would you do?
Four day work week, anyone?

Early bird or night owl?
Once upon a time I was a night owl. Now, I’m in bed by 9:30 pm. Still, don’t talk to me before 8 am.

What are you currently binge watching on Netflix?
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Wild Card!!!

Tacos – hard shell or soft shell?
I accept all tacos but that crunch is where it’s at.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
How do ladies wear heels all day?! I’m short! Tell me your secrets.

If it were up to you, what would your song selection be for conference line hold music?
The music is up to me… bwahahaha!

Bloody Mary or Mimosa? And you can’t say both, although I’d absolutely respect it.
Mimosas were made for the morning. Anything after 3pm, wine time. 

You can bring anyone as a date to a dinner party, dead or alive, who’s your plus one?
Gordon Ramsey because you know we’ll be eating an amazing dish with him as my date. If it’s not, I’ll be highly entertained. 

We know you can’t sing, but what’s your go-to karaoke song?
I remember every word from Disney’s Hercules “Zero to Hero”. Just like that. 

What’s your party trick?
The Cinderella trick. I have to be home by midnight or else my car turns into a pumpkin.

Pick your poison – straight shot or mixed cocktail?
It’s Wine time!

Amy Poehler or Amy Schumer?
Amy Poehler. I would love for Leslie Knope to call me a poetic, noble land mermaid.

If you could spend a year living anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Italy! No one would notice how much pasta and wine I consume. This is normal. Completely normal. 

When was the last time you told a lie? And if you say you don’t lie, then your answer should be “right this second.”
I lied about breaking a wine glass and blamed my older sister. Never got caught. Don’t tell my mom.

Besides an ice cold cocktail, what motivates you?
Family. My sisters are my two pillars and favorite people on this planet. My dad drives me to keep pushing myself and never settle.  And my mom motivates me to do yoga, especially when I’m not feeling it. How does she do that? Mom powers. 

If your name were an acronym, what would it stand for?
Adopts every animal I can
Really (really) organized
Is a yogi
Addicted to wine night
