Those Fame wh*res meowed

Purple21 meowed

so materialistic and unnecessary meowed
Purple 21- with and a pink hardly sweetened cocktail to match her hair ! drink

I'm there!  smiley-eatdrink055drunk Plus I want one of those lethal drinks the Germans gave her and then I'll ask some dope smoking youths to help me back to my car.  Don't worry, I won't drink and drive – I just need to throw some PB & J into the car for the kids.

Don't forget to use your mad photo skillz to teach some village fisherman how to use your never-before-seen iphone to take f-able pics of you. Way to promote education and reach out to the less tech saavy ya know.

Must do – I'll just check that my bra straps are visible. Oooh, and I can pose on my bike to give them a show.

Will you flash them your well oiled lady bits or use a penny to create tiny penis with your ladycoderbikerider skirt?

You guys, this is too much pressure! I'm flouncing off to Cabo now to take a well-earned break.

Pudgy sweaty meatloaves meowed

Pumpkin Spice Scented Feminine Products meowed

Those sandals have got to stink so bad. They've truly lived a life of service — firmly ensconcing Jenna's pudgy, sweaty meatloaves on countless vacations. The way she so frequently manages to look shitty and disheveled, while having seemingly endless resource$ to piss away on film and other nonessentials is an achievement unto itself. Her entire wardrobe needs to be burned.

Had to be done, especially in honor of the new sub-forum. Thank you!

Gah! I had two simultaneous thoughts when I saw that comment:

1. I'm moved to make that my user name…

2. I'm sure someone's already taken it

In tribute to the wedding anniversary of Jenna and That Husband for which they flew to Vegas, I give you an old quote from her Miss Avacado days on Wedding Bee:

 

Mr. Avocado has labeled me as an extrovert who would run around naked if possible, so displaying my every wedding related action for the world to see is pretty much the best thing ever.

 
Jenna is just keeping on Jennaing.

Her eye bags are in full effect in today's Vegas photo. Late nights do not agree with her, apparently.

I JUST discovered That Wife and this forum today so it feels like nice timing to get an entire new thread. The wiki page was actually making me laugh out loud. Sometimes I wonder if people realize that they don't HAVE to have kids. Also, while I was skimming her blog, I saw mentioned somewhere that they want 3+ kids. Uh…….eek

I also think that it's fascinating that she has had so many pages on GOMI dedicated to her for what a little following she has compared to so many other bloggers here. Has she ever indicated that she's aware of GOMI? It seems like she'd have to be, but who knows. I was also thinking that the majority of her followers might be us. Hmmm.

She's definitely referred to haters and trolls etc but I haven't seen her specifically mention GOMI.

Well, since she was Mormon back then she was constantly insisting that having kids was what she was born and most deeply desired to do.

Of course now she's ranted several times – even relatively recently – about how what she was forced to believe when she was young has ruined her life, so… others-221

This is a good post showing her earlier statements on the subject, written only a few months after she got married – http://thatwifeblog.com/2009/01/20/in-which-that-wife-reveals-her-deepest-desire/

At the beginning of our marriage I was so naive. Previously, I thought when people asked if/when I wanted to have kids that they were looking for an honest answer. Innocent and smiling I would say “I wish I had one right now.”

<snip>

Frankly, the more I hear responses in this vein, the angrier I become. What right do these people have to tell me what to do with my own cervix? What right do they have to judge my desire to sacrifice my body, time, and money to bring new life into the world and the timeline in which I decide to do so? Should I text you each morning I successfully swallow the pink pill so you can rest assured I will continue to enjoy my marriage for at least one day longer?

Don’t ask me the question if there is only one reply you want to hear. Rather, whisper to your husband about the time That Husand and I are losing to enjoy ourselves, while you sleep in your lonely apartment and judge me behind my back when you hear I am pregnant 6 months into the marriage. Hold onto your views that kids are to be tolerated as an expensive inconvenience several years into the marriage after the mortgage is paid off and careers are further developed. Whatever you do, don’t take one moment to consider that I might have different priorities in my life.

<snip>

Many of you say this to others and think you are doing them a service. You waited, so they should too! Or maybe you didn’t wait and now your life is ruined and you want to prevent me from making the same mistake. I’m not quite sure what I am supposed to be waiting for at this point. I have the husband (and his best swimmers), the necessary funds, the mental competence, and my body has been telling me how ready it is on a monthly basis for over 10 years now.

So tell me, other than a reason to “enjoy life” for awhile, why should I wait? Some people told me I should wait to get married also. I’m going to go ahead and say that they were wrong.

I’m going to propose something new. Let’s leave the talk of should we/shouldn’t we to the couple. Let’s stop asking if people are “trying”. You tell me that instead of desiring a child I should be exploring other areas of my life, so ask me about them.What do I like to do in my spare time? Where do I work? If I could have dinner with any three people in the world, who would it be?

Unless you want to hear me say “I’d be pregnant last week if it were completely up to me,” just don’t ask.

(In case you didn’t catch it, my deepest desire is to have a baby. Not to have people stop criticizing me for wanting to do so. Though both would be ideal.)

Also for about the above: http://thatwifeblog.com/2009/01/29/pink-pill-of-death/

Some highlights:

Last week I ended up writing a rather scathing post about people who offer unsolicited advice about my sex life (for if you tell me to wait to have a baby aren’t you essentially implying I should be managing my private affairs a certain way?)

I didn’t sit down with the intent to write a post like that, but as I took the time to explore my feelings and experiences in relation to the situation the angrier I became. Now I suspect many of you are wondering what’s keeping me from holding that sweet little baby in my arms?

<snip>

It isn’t That Husband either. When we were dating he said kids in 3-5 years, and I said 1-2. Then we got married and I said “Now” and he said “Why?” and I said “Because I believe my purpose in life is to be a mother.” And he said “Okay, we will do this together.” I love my husband.

 And some recent references to blaming her old choices she now feels were imposed on her:

How did this happen? A variety of reasons, because people and life are complicated and messy. My ability to cope with mess and disorganization is weak, and young children are hurricanes of mess and disorganization. I struggle to stop a task once I’ve started on it and having little kids in the house often means completing tasks in fits and starts. I never defined myself as an individual before giving all of myself to Mormonism, labeled myself as That Wife the moment I snagged my man, abandoned my education and moved right into motherhood. I was lost in a sea of former expectations and paths set long ago, and the more I felt like I was drowning the harder I resisted leaving the water altogether.

 http://thatwifeblog.com/2015/08/04/the-fog-lifting/#more-18337

Parenting is not getting any easier for me, but it’s helped that I’ve stopped trying to force a square peg into a round hole and accepted my mental and emotional limitations. I’m glad I got to start out with little babies who love unconditionally and are very generous when it comes to forgiving my mistakes. I wish I had set myself up with a sustainable career before I had them, because I think I would have done a lot better had a not stayed home for so long, but I’m working to change that with Hackbright and a move into the 9-5 workforce.

<snip>

I was raised to think that following a script brought me happiness. It’s been hard to rewire those thought patterns and figure out how I personally define happiness, and the path I want to take to get there. Is this what most people do in their twenties?

There were other times, including in these Women Evolving podcasts she did, but I don't recall who had the links to the transcripts (and trust me, you don't want to listen to all of them!)
