And when I say she makes me laugh, that's an understatement. She makes me laugh so hard I sob, and she also makes me feel good about everything. She's like my own personal upper, without side effects, and it's pretty sweet. Which is why I found myself getting my boobs signed by her the day after her big pegasus delivery. Who else would I get to break my boob signing virginity after all?
On August 7th, Jenny came by the Indigo down at Bay and Bloor, where she had a great interview, read my favourite chapter of her book and then signed books and chatted the crowd up as if she was a good friend instead of a blogger we all admired via internet stalking on a regular basis. It was a fantastic evening, and perfect timing as I was buying her book to give to my Oma for her 85th birthday, which I was flying to BC for the following day!
Indigo has a great YouTube clip of her reading (she made me laugh until I sobbed again, and I wasn't the only one!). I told Jenny that my hubby was team Victor, and that he wanted her to know he thought she was a bad influence (ie: outrageous collections and kittens and such), we discussed my humming bird skull necklace, and I let her know she was my hero for so many reasons, not the least of which was how she could always make me laugh.
She told a number of great stories, and was genuinely a delight. Everything I could hope for after following her blog for the past year. Now stop waiting around and read her book already! You won't regret it!
