Hello, and welcome to my "About Me" page. My name is Jenny and that is me sometime in the very early 80's. My hair still looks like this.
This blog is pretty much an online diary for me. I've worked through a lot of shit on here and it's been the most therapeutic thing I've ever done. It's also allowed me to meet some pretty awesome people and that is like extra thick buttercream frosting on this crazy lady's cake.
Someday I'd like to write a book. In order to do that, though, I have to get over some staggering self-confidence issues. What I lack in confidence I make up for in laziness and sometimes I think about just printing up this blog and calling it my book and be done with it. Because writing is hard work.
I used to hate my ex-husband but now I just don't care. Not caring is a whole lot better than hating. Now I hate people who take their sweet ass time going through the notoriously short left-turn arrows in my city. Seriously. Who brakes while they're going through those lights?
I have two life-threatening allergies. Penicillin and tree nuts. Assassins, take note.
I cannot wait to fall in love again. Or maybe I can?
Anything more than two dirty martinis is a bad, bad idea. At least for me.
I once met, and hugged, Chris Farley.
One of my kids is named after Charles Barkley, one after Molly Ringwald, one after William Shakespeare and my dog is named after a character in the John Irving novel "The World According to Garp". Henry was my grandfather's middle name so no celebrity/literary story for you, son.
Much to the disdain of anyone who texts me, I am guilty of emoji-overuse. Insert grimacing emoji here. Followed by the red heart and then either the martini or red wine one.
In the world of bloggers, I'm a real small fish. If there was a blogger family, I'd be the weird emo stepkid your cousin brings to the holiday gatherings.
That's all I've got for now! If you need to contact me, my blog email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a really great day.
