What’s Up?

Do Not Despair!

July 5th 2011

Hopefully you guys have noticed that Girrrl!!! has been on hiatus from its regular posting schedule. I just wanted to let everyone know that we have not forgotten the project and have every intention of continuing it full force as soon as Laura returns from the magical universe of Bread and Puppet Theatre. Chapter number four is nearly finished and then we have at least the next five chapters of plot mapped, so get ready for a summer of Jenny!…and Aaron (whom we thank for allowing us to portray him in a fictional work…of astounding accuracy).

We are proud to announce that Girrrl!!! has received the prestigious Adorable Blog Award from Deidre of Pictures of People Wearing Clothes. We are honored and grateful to be given this award and would like to take a moment to thank our families, without whose love and support we never could have made it to the ripe old age of twenty-two, the academy of adorable bloggers, they’re so adorable!, our loving husbands, who don’t yet exist, and Deidre, who has made our week by giving us this wonderful award and whose fabulous blog you should check out immediately!

10 Things You Should Know About Us: If You Want the Position of #1 Fan

• We are Caitlin, a writer and webmistress extraordinaire, and Laura, an artist and illustrator beyond compare.

• We met at a liberal arts college in Indiana, though neither of us are from Indiana. Rumor has it that there is a black hole underneath the library that is slowly sucking the rest of the world there.

• Jenny and Aaron are based on friends of ours of the same names. When we say “based” we actually mean that Girrrl!!! is a biographical work of extreme truthiness.

• We like to spend our time ripping pictures out of Twilight fan magazines and adding seductive captions and pick-up lines. Then we take the pictures and hide them all over our friend Topher’s room. Do you know what it feels like to find Taylor Lautner at the bottom of your laundry basket saying, “If I told you you had a great body, would you hold it against me?” Topher does.

• Caitlin is a compulsive knitter who recently learned that she has been doing the purl stitch wrong for six years. Thank you internet for teaching me things!

• Laura once appeared in a parade dressed as a giant vagina.

• Our favorite pastime is cackling on a porch while snarfing down ice cream and yelling at passerby.

• We both love tipsy Karaoke. Caitlin is known to do a pretty ear-splitting rendition of “Toxic” and Laura is famous for the Disney hit “Part of Your World.”

•  We both have tattoos. If you want to know where they are you better buy us dinner first…or Laura anyway, mine is kind of unavoidably noticeable…unless I took up wearing wrist bands…knitting project?

• The title of the comic is something that real Jenny often says when she thinks your being ridiculous…haven’t worked this into the comic yet, but it’s guaranteed to happen when Suki debuts.

And now we would like to nominate the following blogs for this prestigious award: (drumroll)

1) Jenny of A Cupcake Chronicle
