Perspectives: the Bloggess’s book is optioned vs MONKEYS

The Bloggess wrote a book called Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, which promptly topped important book selling charts like the New York Times Bestselling List.

Jenny Lawson, the ‘real’ identity of the Bloggess, then trolled people who wanted to make her book into a movie or TV series.

Then she finally gave in, after a contract was changed JUST FOR HER.

The book was finally optioned for a TV series.

You’d think that this would be big news but apparently not.

Jenny said:

PS. I wasn’t planning on publishing this until I actually knew if anything would come of it but I’m getting twitter congratulations because apparently it was announced.  It’s very nice, but not really a big deal.

PPS.  I found a place in town that rescues monkeys and I’m going to see if they’ll let me volunteer there, BECAUSE MONKEYS, you guys.  Now, if that actually happens?  That’s a big deal.  It’s important to keep perspective.

I <3 the Bloggess: she’s so refreshing.
