Not much has changed since last week’s post. I am still laughing my way through Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson. I thought I would share one of my favorite quotes of the week from this book.
The set-up: Jenny has been talked into going to a women bloggers retreat in California, and is having serious second thoughts because she thinks most women are “judgy, cruel, fickle, and likely to borrow your Cabbage Patch doll and never give it back.” Her friend Laura reminds her that one of her goals for the year is to make friends with more women.
“She was right, but at the same time she reminded me why girls make both great and terrible friends: They actually listen to your goals, even when you’re too drunk to know what you’re saying.”
Have fun with your friends—girl, boy, cat, or dog—this weekend, everyone.
Oh, and what are you reading?

I am reading Let’s Pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson – aka The Bloggess. It’s totally freaking hilarious. A warning about reading this in public: you will either be choking on your food trying to hold back the laughter or eliciting stares from strangers because you just can’t stop cracking up. Which is probably what those strangers think you are doing.
I am also going to be picking up a copy of The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson. I have been seeing reviews about this recent release, and then found out that the author is going to be in Albuquerque at Alamosa Books this Friday! Talk about synchronicity!
What are you reading this weekend?
