See Jane Date
Forest Hills, Queens
"Did you know that one of your hips is higher than the other?" the seamstress asked me in a totally conversational tone. The bridesmaid to my left eyed me in the mirror, then her gaze dropped to my hips.

Here's the main dirt: It starts when Aunt Ina tries to set Jane up with some Ethan guy, which Jane dodges by saying she has a boyfriend. (A stupid move, I must add. She didn't know crap about him.) Then she's assigned to work on the memoir f...more

I never want to read it again.
generation of twenty-something
females is neurotic. And no

mouth. Bad Jane. Bad, bad Jane.
Lighten up, Jane, lighten up.
Can't wait to rent the made-for-TV movie (which I watched years ago) and see Zachary Levi (of Chuck!) in it.
