If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook then you have already heard me raving about my friend Jen from People I Want to Punch in the Throat and her new book, “Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat.” I haven’t really shut up about it since she sent it to me a couple of months ago because it’s freaking hilarious.
Jen’s blog went viral with her Elf on a Shelf post last year, which you’ve prolly already read because I think about five different people emailed it to me in 24 hours–it’s that good.
I started cyberstalking Jen earlier this year and after she figured out how to respond to my DMs on Twitter, we started chatting online. We met up at BlogHer in NYC this year and I was a little nervous about meeting her because girlfriend is FIERCE on the internets. But I had nothing to worry about. I knew when I saw, “Like Erma Bombeck but with F-bombs” on her business card that we were meant to be Bloggy Sister Wives. Jen is awesome and gracious, a spit-fire and hysterically funny– just like I like my bloggy friends.
And she let me punch her in the throat in the Aiming Low photo booth…
Aside from her famous Elf on a Shelf essay which is in this book, my favorite chapter is You Can Keep Your Cookies, I’m Just Here for the Booze where Jen writes about cookie swaps. I had tears running down my cheeks by the time I finished it.
Jen sent me a copy of “Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat” to giveaway but I’ve been holding on to it because all my Facebook peeps are filled with a fiery, red-hot rage when Target gets out the Christmas decorations the day after Halloween. Out of respect for Thanksgiving (and my crazy Christmas loving people) I waited until today to giveaway the signed copy Jen sent me!
