“That’s the good thing about hanging out with bloggers. Most of them are kind of f-cked up in the same way you are.”—The Bloggess
Have you read any posts by The Bloggess? Have you read her book: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson?
On Sunday Misty (go to her blog for autographed stuff) and I met The Bloggess. Here’s how it went down:
Thoughtsy: Oh my gosh, it’s so nice to meet you!
Jenny: It’s nice to meet you! What’s in the gift bag? Alcohol? Kittens?
Thoughtsy: Kitten-related stuff. And a shirt like mine so we can be twinsies. Sooooo…do you like my shirt?
That last part is not true. I tug on my shirt when I’m nervous…it’s my Mary Catherine Gallagher nervous trait.
Hi, I’m Thoughtsy. You’re awesome. Please accept this humble offering. BTW…Do you like my shirt?
If you haven’t read Jenny’s book, you should. It’s been on the New York Times Bestseller’s List for a month. If you’re still not convinced, maybe some bullets Movies-Teach-Us-style will persuade you.
Here’s what I learned from the book:
- Star Wars is not a documentary.
- Bobcats make good house pets.
- “Intestines” is French for “poop rope.”
- Feral cats are actually vampire cougars.
- Drugs make your boobies fall off.
- Licking wine off your arm is classy.
Well, Jenny, you’ve just met the classiest person to ever walk the earth.
