Win a signed copy of Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend This Never Happened

This is my first giveaway!  Basically I read Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and I peed myself laughing–or I have a urinary tract infection–either way this book is freaking hilarious!  It’s a memoir by The Bloggess whose blog I LOVE!  You can find her here.  Basically the book is about all that stuff we wish never happened but made us who we are.  Spoiler Alert:  If you don’t like the word vagina, don’t sign up for the giveaway–she uses it so much I’m wondering if she secretly has 2 vaginas.  All you have to do is leave a comment with an experience that you wish never happened to you but helped form who you are today.  At the end of the week I’ll choose one special winner.  Good Luck!


UPDATE:  Well this was a hard one!  There were some good experiences!  Thank you everyone for your comments!  Without further ado the winner is…Michelle P!  Enjoy it!

    oh oh oh bad ass give away!!!!

    (I know i’m exempt, but OMG bad ass)

  2. You’re review was very interesting and I’m glad you mentioned that she uses the V word a lot. Because I’d rather not read such a book :) And thanks for your comments on my blog. They really mean a lot to me :)

    I just started reading it today! Love it so far – a little rambly, but still hilarious. And a little gratuitous “vagina” dropping never hurt anyone :)

  4. Brandy says:

    All sorts of uncomfortable thoughts raced through my mind when I thought of ‘things I wish never happened’! But those are all secrets I plan to keep forever. :)

    Oh that’s an easy one…I wish I had never written my exboyfriend a drunk break up letter and left it with his roommate…all his fraternity brothers ended up reading it and I was “quoted” with it until I graduated! Thank goodness there was only one semester left!

  7. Carrie says:

    YAY!! I’ve already ordered mine and it’s due to be sitting at my doorstep on April 24 and then I’m taking it to her book signing the very next day here in Austin!

    I can’t wait. Seriously. Can not wait.

    Soooo glad to hear you loved it. And girl, the more words I can use that make people freeze in fear THE BETTER! Vagina is definitely one of those words…as is ‘porn’.

    Just mention either of those words and faces just freeze up not knowing how to re-act! I love it!

    This is great…you’re fabulous!

    Hmmmmmm… most of the things that have happened to me, both good and bad, are not things I regret because they have helped me get to where I am. I would have to say the biggest detour I took was spending a year in a graduate school program that was totally wrong for me. I was straight out of college and I knew what I wanted to do, but I was still fuzzy on how to get there. I spent a year in Houston at Rice U hating every single day. But of course there is a silver lining! As that horrible year was coming to a close, I started talking to other grad programs I had been accepted to the previous year and I transferred to a professional program at Syracuse. My practice year enabled me to focus and get awesome grades – I became close to a very influential professor who helped me get my first job and pushed me toward the great job I have today.

    Fun giveaway idea!! I have to agree with Michelle, I did TONS of stupid things, but I can’t really regret any of them, because they taught me a lot (mostly about what not to do, ha!).

    Does a 25 year marriage count? Or actually just the last 15 years? No, is there some way to keep the kids (mostly great) and get rid of the time with their father (the more I learn about his behind-my-back-shenanigans the worse it seems). Since I haven’t found a way, I’ll just keep referring to him as my baby-daddy. Perhaps Jennie has a few words of wisdom…. after all she is very wise (must absorb wisdom from all of her furry mascots…)

    This is a tricky one…sometimes I wish I’d gotten into a better school than USC. That way I wouldn’t have been mugged at gun point and I’d likely be in a better place than LA by now. :) But I guess USC helped me get into the entertainment industry and eventually got me the job that I now love!

    Great giveaway! Sounds like a great book.

  12. I know there are MANY things that I wish I could take back, but at the moment I cannot think of a single one. Maybe I have erased them from my mind on purpose!

    I LOVE The Bloggess and can’t wait to hear her speak at Mom 2.0 Summit in Miami next week!!!

  13. one tired mommy says:

    Oh goodness, probably dating my future husband’s brother like 2 months before I started dating my now husband. But I learned not to date just to have something to do, which totally is a stupid reason to do lots of things, so yeah…..

    So hoping I win this!

    I wish I had never wasted so much time on my college boyfriend. I missed out on so much college awesomeness. But I did meet my husband serendipitously through the experience, so it wasn’t all for nothing! It definitely shaped who I am today!
