Face Time



Lindsey MacNabb ’08


Where are you from?

Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, and Deerfield, Mass.

Did you always know you wanted to come to Smith?

No. I applied to Smith regular decision but I decided to go to Smith because I wanted to stay in the east and Smith had everything I was looking for!


Who gets the most face time with you?

In general, the ski team sees a lot of me.

When was the last time you wore a dress?

Hmm...A while ago, Christmas or Thanksgiving.

What are you reading now?

Dancing Naked in the Mind Field by Kary Mullis, winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1993. A book of bizarre accounts of everything—very smart and funny. And Neither Here Nor There: Travels in Europe by Bill Bryson. A hilarious perspective of travels in Europe. Non-stop witty humor.

Do you eat fast food?

Never at McDonalds, etc. Spoleto Express is good, though!

What do you miss most about home?

My friends, the lake in my town and how everyone feels like they're in a winter wonderland for the entire winter season.

What is your favorite movie?

My recent favorites are Atonement and Enchanted. Old favorites include The Italian Job and Les Choristes.

Describe your worst date.

The basic gist: My friend and I were traveling for a few days after a long summer job. We were both pretty tired from it all (two months without a day off) and to add to it, he wasn't feeling wonderful one particular night. While waiting for the bill at a reasonably classy place on the water, he ended up sitting with his arm cradling his head on the table. Just imagine a tired 2-year-old in a 22-year-old body—embarassing!

If you suddenly had two hours of free time, what would you do?

When I have free time and no pressing things to catch up with, I love getting my mountain bike out and climbing Mt. Sugarloaf!

What is your favorite wall hanging in your room?

All of them! I have two homemade photo boards, a world map and a few posters of a few of my favorite cities.

Do you consider yourself an urban, suburban or rural person?

I have lived in generally rural areas but it's time for a big city next!

What annoys the heck out of you?

Skiing or ski racing in the rain.

Who are your role models?

Different people I have met through school, summer jobs and athletics. I'd give names but they wouldn't mean much without knowing the person behind the name—it's who they are and what they do that makes them role models for me.

What single piece of advice would you give to President Christ?

Get to know the students on campus.
