The UO Nice List: Sh*t Girls Say
Hi! We are Kyle Humphrey and Graydon Sheppard, and we created Sh*t Girls Say.
What do you love/loathe most about the holidays?
GS: I love eggnog milkshakes. They’re so disgusting but so good. I loathe the guilt-trips from family about visiting.
KH: I am obsessed with vintage holiday ornaments and lights. I’m not a huge fan of LED string lights, I find them so irritating.
What’s your gift-giving style? Personalized presents, or a Starbucks card for everyone?
GS: My family only buys presents for my nieces and nephews (all under 4 years old), so I usually just buy a few things and let the kids fight it out.
KH: I’m a really terrible gift-giver because I just want people to tell me what they want to so I can give them exactly that.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
GS: Kyle ordered my favorite cologne (that I hadn’t actually owned since we met, I just mentioned it once) from New York and had it shipped up to Canada for me last year.
KH: Graydon gave me a Best Made axe, which came in the longest, weirdest box, it was such a great surprise. Any Lego set I ever got is probably one of the best gifts as well.
What’s the worst gift you’ve ever received?
GS: When I was about 13 my dad gave me a pink and turquoise girl’s electronic diary. I secretly loved it but I was totally mortified that my attempts at projecting masculinity to hide my girlyness had failed.
KH: As a kid, anything that wasn’t Lego.
If you could ask for anything this year (and money is no object) what would you ask for?
GS: A trip to the W Hotel in Maldives for a month and a lot of tranquilizers for the plane rides there and back.
KH: A cabin in the woods. And a DVD of Cabin in the Woods, I love that movie. And world peace?
What is your favorite holiday tradition that you share with friends or family?
KH: My family plays this game called Dutch Blitz. Or at least we played a lot of it one Christmas, so now every year we try to play it again like we used to but it’s kind of boring.
GS: We do family Christmas about a week after the real Christmas so that it’s less stressful.
What’s your favorite holiday snack or food?
GS: Um, hi… eggnog milkshakes.
KH: Stuffing. I love stuffing. It’s food cooked inside of another food!
Without looking it up, what are the ingredients in eggnog?
GS: Sugar, milk, and unicorn eggs.
KH: Gross, all kinds of gross.
Any idea how you will spend New Year’s Eve this year?
GS: Hopefully in Maldives, hint hint Kyle.
KH: Definitely not in the Maldives, probably at home, hopefully with champagne.
If you could be any character from a holiday movie, who would you be and why?
GS: I’d probably be that gay little dentist elf from the Rudolph claymation movie.
KH: Either Chip or Dale from Pluto’s Christmas Tree because as a kid I so wanted to be inside the tree like they were, surrounded by the lights and ornaments.
If you could plant a New Year’s kiss on your dream crush, who would that be and why?
GS: Nick Jonas. I know it’s wrong. I can’t explain it.
KH: Chris Pratt and Tom Hardy because dream big, right?
What was your proudest moment from this past year?
GS: My proudest moment was managing not to say “shit” on live television when we were promoting our book.
KH: Making the Sh*t Girls Say book.
What are you looking forward to most about 2013?
KH: All the pizza I’m going to eat.
GS: Getting a cat.
