OMG IT’S HERE, YOU GUYS

Guess what?

Go out and buy every copy that you can find.  For America.

Or for Canada.

Or for…wherever you live.

Seriously, you’re my only hope.

UPDATED:  Holy shit.  This is in People Magazine…

I suspected this is all just fever dreams from the coma I’m obviously in, but this pretty much proves it.  I’ll miss you all when I come out of this coma.

  25. I preordered a copy from B&N (and paid for it with Christmas lights – best payment method ever) so that should be coming this afternoon. However, I plan on being first in the store at my local Barnes & Noble. Not only will I take pics of the LPTNH display but I plan on making sure that the book is in a good location with great exposure. If this means shoving a Nora Roberts book over to the side, so be it…

    Then I will buy the first copy of the day and I shall dance jubilantly (in my head). Wish that I could be in NYC to see you and the very not empty card table that you will be sitting at. Have them set one up in the ladies as well, just in case. Have fun today!!

  275. Finally, the day I dubbed Best Book Day Ever has arrived. Soon I will have yours and the newest volume of Walking Dead. See, when my husband preordered your book for me he also purchased Walking Dead Volume 15 except he didn’t check the shipping option that sends items as they are ready and instead left the group my items into as few packages as possible option checked which resulted in us having to wait for your book before getting Walking Dead. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy and so disappointed at the same time regarding the purchase of books. Now that your book is officially out, I’m just happy because both will be waiting at home when I get off work. Best book day ever!

    I got a nice surprise on my Kindle this morning! I read the first couple of chapters while waiting in line for lunch.

    First up, let me congratulate whatever person (or possibly AI) that translated text to Kindle so that the footnotes were clickable. That is super awesome. When I read a footnote heavy book without clickable notes, I have to page forward to the note and then painsakingly page back, which is so annoying that I don’t do it. So I usually just read them stacked at the end of the chapter or book and wonder what in hell they related to.

    But most of all, I found what I think is a typo. But it is so unintentionally hilarious that it is better mistyped. (Or more likely, misconverted to Kindle). And if you did this on purpose, then I salute your clever wordplay.

    In I Was A Three Year Old Arsonist, you talk about being in line at the liquor store and wanting to talk about childhoods. Here’s the quote: “Childhood trauma seems like the natural choice, since it’s the reason why most us are in line there to be gin with.” Be gin? Not begin? I think this is a conversion issue with the Kindle because I’ve seen some of these word breaks before, and since “be” and “gin” are both words it doesn’t show up in a spelling check. But since it’s about being in line at the liquor store, and you just mentioned gin a couple pages back, it is all the more funny. The line itself is funny, but the typo is even funnier.

    Either it’s unintended hilarity or intentional wordplay, but either way my fellow lunch-line mates now think I’m weird. Apparantly, busting a gut laughing over seemingly nothing is frowned upon. Who knew? Thanks, Bloggess!

    Thank you for delivering Jenny Lawson’s new book today. Next time I order a book, could ya not fuck up the dust cover before I have even opened it up? It’s called bubble wrap you jackasses. This book is going to be a collectors item- I have a bookplate that no else does, some Penguin guys sent it to me . My copy was exclusively signed by Jenny Lawson herself….in blood.

    OK Amazon, I guess I will just “…Pretend This Never Happened.”

    Hugs & stuff,

As soon as I can come up with an appropriate, work friendly blurb, it’s going directly on my Staff Reccomendation. I was lucky enough to get an advanced reader copy and, oh man. I laughed. I cried (from laughing). I thought I was going to choke to death (from laughing). I still can’t think of the phrase “deer sweater” without losing it, and the squirrel puppets at work are all named Stanley now.

  393. So the other day I checked my mail and had this little envelope with a picture of a penguin on it. I recognized it as a publisher’s logo and for a second thought, “Holy shit, I’ve been discovered!” Because we all know how publishers like to browse the internet looking for blogs that never get updated, then offer that author a book deal. So I opened the envelope, and there was the tiniest slip of paper inside that might have been a multi-thousand dollar advance. But it wasn’t. “Hmm, I thought, why did J. Lawson sign a sticker with Shakespearean mouse on it and send it to my house?” And then I remembered and rejoiced. Way better than a check for $10,000. Seriously.

    The end.

    I’m so f-n mad and pissed and bummed and depressed and any more adjectives you all can think of to add to this. I went to Target today to buy the book and I couldn’t find it anywhere and there was no one to ask either. I guess it was Karma for not ordering from you in the first place Jenny. I’m sorry. Anyway, I also had a chance to go to B&N but I decided Sunday (not remembering the book was out on Tuesday until yesterday) that I was not going to go to the event (not related to your book unfortunately). Anyway, to make a long post shorter, I am still feeling crappy because I had a crappy day AND I didn’t get to buy your book. But you have saved the day as usual Jenny because when I came here to post all that I saw the boobie mushroom post and that was so funny it cheered me right up. Thank you Jenny.

  423. I was very excited today to power up my Kindle so I could receive your book! Of course, I’m at a hotel for a conference (remember how you scheduled your NY book tour date purposefully so that I couldn’t attend?!) so I had to wait until the end of the day to read it. But then I took my Kindle to the hotel gym, figuring at least it would help me get through my torturous half hour on the bike. My first emotion whilst reading your book was shame, as I laughed inappropriately loud in this public place and may have spit on the machine in the process while an elderly man (in white shorts and knee high socks) scowled at me. My second emotion was sadness as I realized my bike ride was coming to an end and I would have to put the book away for at least 2 minutes while I returned to my room. Kudos to you, as it is the first time in history that anyone was sad to see their stationary bike ride come to an end, and you should totally put that factoid in the sequel. I will accept either an autographed copy of said sequel or US $1Million as fair compensation for my contribution.

  430. Totally pre-ordered a copy for me and for my lovely ex-Houstonite friend Ellen who also loves critters and dressed-up dead critters. (Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with you Houston people?) Didn’t tell her I was sending it neither. Got a text when she got home and found your book as a surprise on her doorstep. There were happy noises in text followed by movies of her petting a baby squirrel. A BABY SQUIRREL.

    Oh, wait. What? Book? Oh, yes. I found the dedication K-Mart story to be exceptionally poignant. I cried.

    I also cackled aloud to the first two chapters (well, the second chapter and that first one that didn’t really count, I guess), prompting husband to ask, “What’s so funny?” I would read the passages.

    “Oh. I don’t get her. She’s not that funny.”

    I would establish a rule that husbands just don’t get it (lumping Derek and Victor together into the case study group that therefore proves the rule for ALL husbands) except then I remember that I am Derek’s husband…and that’s when my argument falls apart.

    Anyhoo. I am SO happy this book is here, and I’ve already read way more of it than that Palahniuk thing I started two years ago. I would take this on my roadtrip to Denver but a) I’m apparently driving the first leg and 2) I would throw up all over our friend’s gigantic truck I get so carsick. (Don’t worry — I’d hold the book high enough to avoid vom.)

    Oh, and the tour totally needs to move inward. Apparently, I need more roadtrips, but Dallas is the closest and that’s still like 10-11 hours. What about Des Moines? Omaha? Tulsa? I think there’s a nice book section of the Wal-Mart in El Dorado, Kansas that I could make it to while dropping in to pick up bait.

    Hi Jen,

    So I picked up a few copies on Amazon, one for me, one for mum, one for a friend, but then my partner split up with me; so now I have several copies of your book in transit to my exes house. I’m really hoping that he doesn’t set fire to the package, I think that there should be some sort of insurance policy on Amazon for that, ‘act of vengeful ex,’ it could cover ‘act of vomit-y elderly cat’ as well, because I think that he would think it was creepy if I camped out on his front porch for a week with a fire extinguisher, and you just can’t stop 16 year old cat from eating grass.
