The Bitterness of Hell

Sorry to disappoint, but I am not Jenny, I am Annie (hence the melodramatic title of today's post). As for her absence, it's nothing personal, if she could I am sure Jen would be here right now, clicking keys faster than smoke to get one of her fantastically funny posts out to the blogosphere for all to enjoy.

But alas, Jen's dead. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration. Her power cord is dead (and possibly her computer, but the jury's still out on that one). Considering her current budget, it will either be a short period or a long period before she's got her laptop up and running, we're not sure which (again with the absent jury).

But don't you think for one second that she's not going to be blogging, no sirree. She will be here just as much as ever--or as often as she can run to Mother's house and escape her four children (who I will not name at this time because she's afraid one of you pregnant ladies might steal her names and then the entire planet will be littered with American children with Irish names--ten points to anyone who can guess them).

And so I give my solemn oath as a Sister of Jen's Jingle that I will do everything in my power to ensure that she posts really funny stuff on a regular basis--despite her computer's uncooperative nature.

And if she doesn't you can always come visit me here. What? Like I would waste precious minutes of Junie's nap to post on her blog without any compensation? Come on, you know me better than that...

Jen, I would hope your very successful, very wealthy, very syndicated sister would be kind enough to send you a power cord (or a new computer). That's the least she can do.

Annie Valentine said...

Successful? Wealthy? Syndicated? Who is this miracle sister???

Oh my this is a tragedy of ginormous proportions. This is awfully terrible and terribly awful. Jen I wish you could read my sympathetic comment. I wish you all the best and maybe we could do a fundraiser to help you out. Oh wait fundraisers of are of the devil, so never mind.

Jen said...

Well I've stolen a few precious minutes of my day - right between the dreaded exercise and the continued job-hunt - to sneak up to my mother's, and say hello.

Hello.

And I already miss all of you. This stinks. Hopefully I'll manage more blogging time than I think.

(And Machen, I totally agree. If she were ANY kind of a sister at all, she would buy me a new computer and tell Dave Ramsey to stick it).

Stupid computers! Stupid technology! Bless sisters who post info for you:)

And I want ten points so I'm guess Irish names (I'm part Irish, too!) Um...Patrick, Shannon, Michael and Caitlin. (And maybe I just listed some of my American cousins with Irish names...)

Boy Mom said...

Grr, stupid computers! We'll miss you. Thanks for filling in Annie!

Stephanie said...

No one guessed on the names yet. As soon as I saw that, I knew it was in the bag. Barbaloot guessed Caitlyn? Hello, it's Meara. Is this seriously a contest? I need to know what ten points earns me before I divulge anymore. :)

R Max said...

OK, I think your sister's children's Irish names are... Siobbhan, Patrick, Bono and Patio Furniture.

Grandma Blog said...

LBC(Life before computers).What did we do with all that time? Hope you get back on track real soon. My deepest sympathy.

Annie Valentine said...

Stephanie, I love that you publicly said Meara's name. Jen's gonna freak out.

Jen said...

I will not freak. I used to put it on here all the time. Relax.
