tonight i met jen lancaster, and i still can’t believe it!!! seriously, i almost think i’m dreamin’!!! (no, SRSLY, i was even all ‘pinch me!’ …and she did!)
jeanne introduced me to ms. lancaster earlier in the year, and i devoured her 2nd book and immediately fell in love. so funny, so witty, so real. plus, you have to love anyone with a healthy dislike of all things squirrel (squirrels are fucking evil, ok??). even though i did it a bit out of order, i read her first two books and counted down the days until book #3 was out.
this june, she released her third ‘memoir’ Such A Pretty Fat: One Narcissist’s Quest To Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass LookBig, Or Why Pie is Not The Answer. i got it, i devoured it, i LOVED it. honestly, i think i’m going to have to read it all over again after tonight’s shindig because i’m reminded of just how hilarious and awesome it is.
coinciding with the release of the new book is a book tour (hooray!) and while the first phase totally skipped over the east coast, phase 2 included boston (double-hooray!). thus, jeanne and i took off work early and went downtown to the borders for a jen lancaster book event.
