Jenny Writes a Book - Beware!

Look what arrived in the mail! Jenny Lawson's new book - Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir.)

I've had the honor of knowing Jenny, the Bloggess, since our early bloggy days and perhaps the most interesting memory was when the two of us were cornered by a crew of Canadian bloggers at a party at BlogHer, back in oh, maybe 2007, and nervously agreed that we "tasted the bubbles" in the Canadian Aero chocolate bars, while telegraphing to each other that we had no idea what our new northern friends were talking about.

She mentioned that her husband, Victor, had acquired the domain name "thebloggess.com" for her, and since then it's been one hilarious, often profanity filled, sometimes touching, and always amazing post after another. Congratulations on your new book, Jenny!

Although I'm not sure she'll be able to look at the picture above, because she has a fear of giant squid. Hopefully, fuzzy octopuses are ok. They are cheering her on too!

Yay! I'm so excited to read the book too! Mine is on my coffee table. I'm considering putting my stuffed mouse near it.

I can't wait! Mine is on its way. I remember being in a hotel room with Jenny and a few others at BlogHer '07. She told some crazy story, then said "But you can't tell anyone that because I'm saving it for my book." And now the book is here!

I thought it was funny to see it recommended in Whole Living. That magazine is pretty tilted to the zen/seek peace sort of clientele. But laughing is good for the soul so maybe that trumped the profanity part of the book in the editors' mind:)
