If it's Sunday, this must be Annapolis.

I’m still on tour and Sunday I’m in Annapolis.  Come see me?  Please?  To commemorate the last day of the second leg of the tour I’m celebrating by sharing the first post I ever wrote on this blog:

Hard to believe I got zero comments on that one until I bribed my coworker to leave one two days later.

PS.  A photo from today’s tour in Gaithersburg:

I also signed a baby and someone gave me a toilet seat with my picture on it. True story.

It was a weird day.

  55. Someone may have given you a toilet seat with your name on it, but my friends and I are giving you a taxidermied Hamster named Hammy Potter — to go with Ron Weasel-y and Ermione Granger. The only reason we didn’t bring it today is because our friend’s daughter’s hamster didn’t die in time to be taxidermied. We may be a little fan stalkery, but we are not a Criminal Minds episode so we made sure that our offering died of natural causes. Apparently it takes a while to taxidermy a hamster so it’ll be a few months.

    P.S. We need your address so we can mail you Hammy Potter when he is finished.

You had a police escort. (Sorry, you had a fucking police escort.) It was awesome and frightening, all at the same time.

As for the cop, I could totally arrange for you to be arrested (as I know this was just a publicity stunt to get your second book a ton of attention, which really isn’t needed but that’s not the point and when are you publishing that one because I’m jonesing for another Bloggess novel ). Anyway, signing the baby is genius because she will never remember it, but her parents will be paying for her therapy for years and all the while knowing it was worth it. However, the toilet seat is quite intriguing. I would have you do the same. In Sayre, PA. The headquarters of We Love Jenny Lawson Fan Club.

  107. So I read your book this weekend. Thank you for making my childhood normal. At least I am not the only one who had a Dad who did things like kill a rattlesnake and cut it’s head off and place it on the floorboard of the truck and let his 5 year old climb in. The last twitches of the muscles in the snake caused a headless rattlesnake to strike my leg and leave a little bloddy spot on the back of my calf. I am suprisingly able to look back on this and laugh. Cause what else can you do. But now I feel like there are people out there who understand and are not horrified by my sense of humor that was culminated from such experiences.
    Thank you Jenny😀

    So I’m sitting in the VIP tent at the Gaithersburg Book Festival holding Jenny Lawson’s book in my sweaty little hand, waiting to see Jenny Lawson speak and then go stand in line so that Jenny Lawson can sign that sweat-stained book of mine when into the tent walks JENNY LAWSON! And I start trying to get my friend’s attention and let him know that Jenny Lawson has just walked into the tent because he doesn’t even know what she looks like because he is awful! (You don’t always have to like your friends) So I’m saying “It’s Jenny Lawson! It’s Jenny Lawson!” and trying to make jerking motions with my head in her general direction only Jenny Lawson is like FIVE FUCKING FEET AWAY!! so I can’t be all obvious about any of this so of course I can only speak through clinched teeth in a harsh, hissing whisper and make subtle twitchy motions with my jaw and my friend thinks there’s a bee maybe flying around my head and keeps trying to swat at this non-existent insect until, by means of me holding the book right up against his face whilst making crazy, google eyes at Jenny Lawson, finally makes him say, “Oh! Is that Jenny Lawson? You should go say hi.” And I’m, “For the love of God, I can’t just walk up to Jenny Lawson and say hi!!” and he says, “You should say hi and then get her to sign your book.” and I hiss/scream “I can’t ask her to sign my book! Not now! Not here! Not in the VIP tent! That would totally violate the sanctity of the VIP tent! Wouldn’t it?” And I’m seriously contemplating going over and asking her to sign my book when some other lady comes up and asks her to sign her book bag! And then I really can’t go up and ask her to sign my book because it would totally ruin this righteous indignation I have going on towards this book bag lady who completely violated the sanctity of the VIP tent with her bag signing antics and then I realize my friend has wandered off and I’m one of only five people in the tent with Jenny Lawson so I panic and run away, like you all would. And then I watch Jenny’s presentation and it totally rocks and kicks the asses of every other writer who was there that day, including the dude from ’30 Rock.’ The dude with the hats. All the hats. And then I wait in what is the longest line of the day for Jenny to sign my book and I wait in that line for 12 hours!!!! (probably) and my bald spot gets sunburned and now it’s peeling so it’s like I have radioactive monster dandruff and when I finally get up to see Jenny I say maybe three words to her with one of them being “Gawrsh! and then run away in a panic again. But the moral of this story is that it was totally worth it to stand in line for 27 hours (probably more) just to get kaiju dandruff and say three words to Jenny Lawson. But in the future, screw the sanctity of the VIP tent.

    I just read your book cover to cover in less than 48 hours. This is incredible because I have serious ADD when it comes to reading. The last time I actually finished a book was 6 years ago- and I kept the book to prove to myself that it was actually possible. My BFF knew that I wouldn’t get bored with your book so she sent it to me for Mother’s day and I just finished it- it was fabulous. There were times I was laughing soo hard while reading it in bed that the whole bed was shaking- which totally pissed off my husband.(bonus!) I was STUNNED at the pictures of Victor. I have no clue why I imaged him looking totally different than he does- but this is how I pictured him….I thought he was like 15 years old than you, a slightly overweight Italian man with a balding head and slicked back black hair. I pictured him with a belly and his dress clothes tucked in and a black leather belt around his belly. I have NO CLUE why this was the picture in my head of Victor- but for me it fit. So it is hard for me to accept the TRUE look of Victor as real. But maybe one day I will it. Who knows….. I doubt it…but one can never tell on these things. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the way you actually wrote the book- it kept my attention. The words were spaced out enough that my eyes didn’t get lost and everything always held my attention. I still feel like you are my twin separated at birth- but some how you got all of the boobs. I got screwed on that for sure. Oh and when I was reading your book my 10 year old actually walked up to me and said- “Wow- you are reading a book. I didn’t know that you actually read books!” Yep- that is my life. My 10 year old doesn’t even remember when I finished that other book 6 years ago. I mean- what the hell! He can’t remember things from when he was 4. geeze. Loved the book- and can’t wait until your next one comes out- it we have to wait 10 years then so be it. It will be worth the wait. Bravo! You did a great job! I will be passing this on to my sister to read- who I am sure will love it too. Thanks again for letting us into your life. 🙂

Also, again due to arms getting tired, I didn’t get all of the Q&A section, but most of it is there.

    So, without further ado, here are the:
    * Intro – http://youtu.be/EfImA44nJFg
    * Q&A section – http://youtu.be/90SPvM9ST1c

    Enjoy! Jenny, I give you full rights to do with these videos as you wish.

    I had the pleasure of seeing you in Gaithersburg. Drove a very long way and listened to a profoundly boring lecture on oil because I wanted to save my seat in the pavilion to hear you read. You certianly did not disappoint. It was wonderful. My friend and I laughed so hard that we cried and were super excited to stand in the 2 hour line to have our books signed. Thank you so much Jenny for being you and sharing yousrself with all of us.

    (PS – that cop laughed so hard that he cried too. I think he was genuinely touched by your words).

  186. My uncle had the most hilarious stutter. For whatever reason, he’d get stuck on a word until he swore, and that seemed to fix it. So it was “My d-d-d-goddammit dog died.” Every story he’d tell, regardless of content, was the funniest thing I ever heard.

  187. Damn it all to hell. I JUST found your blog, because my awesome library sent out a message saying “read this if you want to howl with laughter”. I did, and I did. Now I am obsessively going back through your blog and I see you were in my hometown. Aaaaggghh. Where is my time machine?
