It’d be way more useful than the little laminated, pocket-size diplomas they gave my class when we graduated from high school.

So my week has sucked – my one year old broke his arm and I got some nasty test results and the doctors are making me do this whole biopsy thing tomorrow….I thought my husband was going to explode from the stress of final exams, working a full time job, having a baby with a broken arm and a wife who apparently is grows suspicious cells – but last night he went out and bought me your book and we curled up in bed and laughed until our bellies hurt. And today at work when I wanted to cry – I just flipped through the titles of your chapters and it made me smirk. I’m bringing your book to my biopsy tomorrow. Thank you for the comic relief. P.S. – In my head, we are friends.

  550. So…tonight I cried a little because not only did I miss my normal small group Bible study, but your book signing…(you’re the real reason I cried a little …those other girls will forgive me and see me this weekend at the party.)

    Either way, it is all due to my wedding reception that is this Saturday and while I thought I had planned a perfect amount of time to do it all (I totally did), what I didn’t plan for was a blown fuse, people calling me to buy my software (daytime job) every 10 mins (this is awesome!) and having to put together little gift baskets for guests attending our party this weekend…

    Long story short…I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wish that I had been able to come to your book signing tonight. I was saving buying your book for this. Now I just have to get it online and miss the chance to try and make you my best new friend. My partner (husband/whatever) already agrees that both of our lives would be more full if you were part of it…and not because he thinks I am lacking. It is because then he would not have to be my “Victor” and he would probably not have to give me crazy looks if you and I were friends.

    Congrats on all that is so obviously deserved! I look forward to continue sharing you with everyone I know!

  636. it is everything you deserve – and not the least of the everything. the kind of everything that grows and grows and grows until everyone you touch feels it deep in their hearts and touches you back (but not in the bad way).

    it is gratitude and it is thankfulness and it is relief and it is understanding …. and it is endless!

    My partner thinks I’m crazy because I often start crying reading your blogs…from laughing, not because they are sad. Then I try reading them to him and he can’t understand a word I’m saying because I’m laughing too hard so he says he will just read it himself but I won’t let him because I want to read it to him.
    Anyway, I think you rock.

    BTW….haven’t read the book yet but as soon as I have the money I will be getting it. I can’t wait….I might try to fit it into our food budget.:)

  720. Completely deserved. The other day, I was sitting in bed reading your book and wishing that reading could be more of a group activity, just so I wouldn’t have to laugh like a lunatic all by myself. So I asked my husband if I could read him a chapter, and he said no, because he’s planning on reading the book after me and he didn’t want me to ruin it for him, but I did it anyway because that’s how I roll. And then I started laughing so hard while I was reading it that I was crying, and I couldn’t go on, so maybe reading it out loud was a bad idea. But then I realized my husband was TOTALLY enjoying it, which only proves that I’m always right and he should just defer to my wishes all the time.

    ANYways. Point is, this book was already the best book I’d ever read EVER even after I’d only just read the first page. When it ends, I’ll be sad, because other books will pale in comparison. So many congratulations.:)

  771. Dah-yum! You go girl! Of course, WE all knew you were this good, because you’ve been making us pee our pants laughing for YEARS now. So this was NOT unexpected by any stretch of the imagination. You rock, Jenny! Thanks for just being who you are, and doing what you do. The highs and lows you share make me feel like I’m not alone in struggling through this roller coaster called life, and when you can make the journey funny, you do. And the lows don’t seem as low, and the highs get higher. So rock on, sister.

  774. I think you can now sufficiently justify that Harry Potter collection of dead animals to Victor. Great seeing you in San Antonio. Love reading the book [and intermittently losing all bladder control]. Keep going, Girl!

  777. Congrats! This is super exciting news. I haven’t had a chance to get your book yet but it seems like it is you in book form. Since you are awesome it thus makes sense that everyone would love it. I’m glad that everything is going according to the master plan that I’m sure you have in place.

    1) Conquer the internet by being amazing
    2) Write a book
    3) Become super popular in the “real” world
    4) ?
    5) Cage match with JK Rowling
    6) ?
    7) World Domination

    I personally am looking forward to the various well dressed dead animals that will soon be watching over all of us and keeping us safe.

    Congratulations again. We’re all super proud of you obviously.

  780. SOO happy for you! I got the book on Friday, finished it last night and LOVED IT. I laughed so much, I recognized myself and my family…I instantly went on to my facebook and announced it was one of the top 3 books i’ve EVER read (and I read A LOT). You are such an amazing inspiring woman Jenny. For real.

    Just to point it out-I identify so much with you and you inspire me with your braveness, wit, sense of humor and courage. My Dad, to whom I am close, moved away when I was 18. He recently moved back home and I’m 32 now. He’s been saying he needs to “re-learn” who I’ve become as a woman: my dry wit, sarcasm, what I find funny, my likes and dis-likes, etc. I knew right away, the best way to show him- I’m going to make him read the book.

    You rock forever. Keep on Keepin on.

  800. SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! Amazing:) Many congratulations to you! My husband just went out of town on a work trip and the number one thing I requested (/demanded) was your book. Yes, I live in a small town with no book store. Anyway, it’s hilarious and endearing and making me feel sane and some slight jealousy, and then I remember that I am from a culture that still values hunting/gathering very highly and I have some pretty great blood/dead animal filled memories including helping to skin a caribou on our living room floor.

    Anyway, I can’t put it down. Other than to comment here, or when I made myself tea, or when I made some ranch dressing to accompany my lunch.

    Also, I am not jealous of the the whole rheumatoid arthritis thing, cause I got that shit and it fucking sucks.
