Samantha Sammy da Silva is one of those little doggies that have hit their head one too many times on the mailboxes while sticking her head out the window on the drive home. A loyal companion and a strong dog. But oh, such a silly one.
She hails from Keetmanshoop (in Namibia) and has a peculiar love for frozen veggies. Bless her. We’ve embarked upon the easy mission of getting to know her. Here is a few scribbles of our findings…
Tell us what embarrasses you…
Me, myself and I. I have terrible foot-in-mouth disease. I honestly embarrass myself once a day at the very least!
Do you have any phobias that we should know of? You know, just to make a day at the office interesting…
Rodents for sure! A mouse bit me on my toe once and I was scarred for life. I hate mice!
We made a lunchie just for you, Sam!
If you could date any actor for a day, who would you scoop up and why?
(squeals!) Ooh!! Stefan Salvatore from Vampire Diaries. My, he’s so hot!
Name 3 Words to describe your personality.
Silly, funny, realistic.
Who was your childhood crush?
Freddy Prince Jnr! From the movie She’s All That! I liked the jocks, I must admit.
What kind of music are you into?
A weird combo, I know, but I Really like metal and dubstep
Name one of your ultimate pet peeves.
I absolutely hate it when I am in a shop and there is a till open and the cashier doesn’t beckon me to come over! I get so frustrated and spite them by breaking all the chocolates in the aisle while I wait! I’ve broken many a chocolate log in my day!
If you were going to write a book, what would it be called and what is it about?
I’ve actually thought about it , you know. To write a book about my life. I’ll call it ‘Keeping up with Sam’.
If you could learn one random skill, what would it be?
When people’s computers get fixed, I want to type shiz in there and fix it! I want to know EVERYTHING there is to know about computers! I wanted to be Bill Clinton’s twin. Oh no wait, I meant Bill Gates’ twin!
(No comment from the interviewer’s side. And no making fun of Sam in our heads either)
Have you ever taken a personality test? How did the results turn out?
I’ve done one online based quiz that revealed I’m a bit of a whacko. (laughs)
What’s the most money you’ve ever given away?
R35 000 to myself! For personal use!
What’s the biggest personal change you’ve ever made?
Well, I generally like to be surrounded by people. I’m a big extrovert and always liked the company. Nowadays, I’ve learnt to be by myself and have become fond of my personal space. I’d like to think that I’m more independent now.
If someone asked you to give them a random piece of advice, what would you say?
Never change who you are just because people don’t like it!
We couldn’t agree with you more Sam.
Never stop breaking those chocolates and always remember to wear a helmet to bed. You don’t want to hurt yourself you know..
