you’ll never be rid of me!

Jennifer —


An immortal

‘How will you be defined in the dictionary?’ at


[As seen at Hillary‘s place]

Immortal, eh? As evidenced through…well, my entire life, there are a whackload of Jennifers out there. And, should we all be immortal, I think we’re in a damn good position for taking over the world.

Apparently, Jennifer means fair spirit [must admit, that’s the first time I’ve seen that one – it’s usually white wave]. Who else better to run things that those with a fair spirit? Fair as in kind. Fair as in just. Fair as in decent. When was the last time we had that in world leaders? Yeah. And how’s that working out for you?

Sadly, I’m not much into world domination. My apologies. Despite the claim of being so good for the world [and you know we would be], it’s really just too much stress. Being kind and just and decent in my own day-to-day is one thing. Sometimes, I even succeed. But on behalf of the entire world? I dunno, that’s just asking for a meltdown. There are a lot of assholes out there to be dealt with and I fear it might be too much for my fair sensibilities.

Maybe that’s why there are so very many Jennifers out there. We each get a little section – something that we can handle. But, please, feel free to help us out. Fair probably means good at delegating, too. Because, while it seems that I may be around longer than the rest of you, we still all have to hang out together for a few more decades, at least.

Um, wow. That almost got political, or something. Maybe my coffee’s wearing off. Maybe I need to go purge at my poor, neglected poetry place.

Oh and, for the record, I hit refresh on the name quiz and came up with full of bees.

Make of that what you will…

One response to “you’ll never be rid of me!

  1. Haha! I will have to check out my name (Jane).

    It’s funny, growing up my name was never a popular name with girls my age (I’m 26 – grew up with a lot of Kims, Jessicas and Laurens), but my best friend is named Jane, too!

    We used to call ourselves Jane Squared. Clever, huh? 😉 (We were 13, give us a break!)
