    “On the spot: Brita Furr, Anthropology senior”

    Is that a family name?

    It is. My mother’s name is Bridgette, and Brita is the Irish-Gaelic version.

    Do you like it?

    I love it.

    Did you ever get teased?


    What did they call you?

    Water filter.   “”Can you purify my water?””

    Well that’s obvious. Has anyone used that as a pickup line?

    No, not really.

    Would it work on you? Like, after a few drinks?

    (Laughs.) No, not even after a few drinks.

    What bar would you go to if you were on a date?

    Probably IBT’s. I like dancing.

    If I found a straight man who would go dancing at IBT’s with me, I would marry him. What are your thoughts on Lady Gaga?

    Gaga equals God.

    Truth. If you had to live in one of Lady Gaga’s music videos, which would you pick? Dibs on “”Bad Romance.””

    I have no idea. I don’t know what any of the songs are called.

    You shouldn’t even be allowed in IBT’s. I’m serious.


    It’s OK. Tell me something random.

    My picture is at Core.

    You’re the Core girl? The girl with the salad?

    I’m not the Core girl. There’s a picture of me on the menu.

    Did you pose with the salad, or do action shots?

    No, I just posed. They touched the salad a lot.

    Do you get free Core for life now?

    No, but I got a gift card.

    All you got was a gift card?

    Yeah, I use it to buy smoothies. I don’t reallylike salad.

    You’re a sham of a salad model.
