About this author

Known for her sardonic wit and her hysterically skewed outlook on life, Jenny Lawson has made millions of people question their own sanity, as they found themselves admitting that they, too, often wondered why Jesus wasn't classified as a zombie, or laughed to the point of bladder failure when she accidentally forgot that she mailed herself a cobra. Her blog (www.thebloggess.com) is award-winning and extremely popular.


I’m on a lot of cold meds but I thought you’d enjoy. Or not. Stop judging me. I’m sick.




They’re in my shop if you want one,but be aware that everyone you wear it around is going to tell youthat your shirt is on inside out. But then you can flash them a raccoon face (and flash them in general if you aren’t wearing something underneath) and they won’t bother you again. EVERYONE WINS.

Oof, I'm not sure what to say. How do I express how much I enjoyed this book? I suppose one look at the cover image and everyone will be saying "THIS MUCH"!

“A friend is someone who knows where all your bodies are buried. Because they're the ones who helped you put them there."
And sometimes, if you're really lucky, they help you dig them back up.”
Jenny Lawson, Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir

“It's true, I did say I wanted girlfriends," I capitulated hesitantly, "but couldn't we start with something smaller and less terrifying? Like maybe spend a weekend at a crack house? I heard those people are very nonjudgmental, and if you accidentally say something offensive you can just blame it on their hallucinations.”
Jenny Lawson, Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir

“If someone asked me to pick out my own vagina’s mug shot out of a lineup of vaginas, I’d be helpless. And probably concerned about what exactly my vagina had been doing that constituted a need for its own mug shot.”
Jenny Lawson, Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir
