Allow Myself to Introduce Myself

by Gina Denny

As you can tell from the title of this post, I reference pop culture a lot. 

I live in two worlds. One is a world of books. 

I love to read and I like to say that my favorite genre is the kind where the main character wears a cloak at some point in the story. 

I've done things. I wrote half a book about zombies. 

That's not true. But I do write fantasy and science fiction novels. I'm awful at kissing scenes but really pretty good at, like, being weird and stuff. 

I like being weird and taking my time. 

Hey, Did you ever see that "Twilight Zone" where the guy signed a contract and they cut out his tongue and put it in a jar and it wouldn't die, it just grew and pulsated and gave birth to baby tongues? Pretty cool, huh?

No? Nothing? 

Allllllrighty then. 

What else? I'm a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom, so I have tons of extra time. 

I like eating burritos, but I can't go to Taco Bell, I'm on an all-carb diet. Sweatpants are all that fit me right now. I know, I know. Complaining about food and free time is sort of the ultimate first world problem. Like, "Oh, poor me. My wallet's too small for my fifties and my diamond shoes are too tight."

I blog about things that have to do with writing, reading, being a person, and living in the internet. 

Oh. And there are nine pop-culture references in this post, not counting any of the pictures. Unicorn glitter to anybody who can spot them all :)

  1. Not counting the pictures:

    Austin Powers (Title)
    Gilmore Girls ("I live in two worlds. One is a world of books.")
    New Girl (Twice: "I've done things. I wrote half a book about zombies.", "I like being weird and taking my time.")
    Wayne's World (twilight zone tongues)
    Ace Venture Pet Detective ("Allllllrighty then.")
    Mean Girls (burritos and sweatpants)
    Friends ("Oh, poor me. My wallet's too small for my fifties and my diamond shoes are too tight.")

    Not sure if for #9 you mean referencing the "First World Problems" meme, or the No Nothing music video, or if I'm just missing one. This was the best I could do.
