Okay, first, I must say that I will never, ever, ever, in a million years be able to pronounce Jen's last name.
Never. It just won't happen. You could write it down phonetically and the closest I would get is Snufalupagus. And that's totally not right because her last name starts with 'M'. And it's a long one. She started saying it to me on Wednesday when we did our trade and I think she's just finishing up saying it now.
She agreed to meet me Wednesday night while we were setting up for the First Thursday Art Walk to do the trade for PigFace. Doug had to climb up in to the loft and pry PigFace off of the wall he's been living on for the last few months. It's bare up there without him.
Some things I learned about Jen:
- She lives in a park. Not because she is homeless but because her husband is a park ranger.
- She teaches water aerobics.
- She hasn't been teaching water aerobics for the last two weeks because she got bit by a zombie and has to wait for the stitches to heal before she can get back in the water.
- She has a super-duper long last name.
- Her Etsy store is cool.
I made her, like most of those before her, answer my "interview" questions. Enjoy:
