J is for Jen

Yup. That's right. I'm talking about me. Don't you wanna know what makes me tick? Yeah, I didn't think so. But I'm feeling it anyway and since this is my blog you get to learn all things Jen.

1. I is a girl.
2. I is a 25 years old.
3. I say I like cupcakes but I hardly ever eat them.
4. I love sour sweets.
5. I have a day job (I know I'm not happy about either).
6. I have unhealthy obsessions.
7. I have weird quirks (not I'm not sharing).

Did I share enough? Are you curious about anything? Now is the time to ask... if there is a question you want answered just ask.

Now it's your turn. Who are you? What are you about? SHARE!

#1, thought so.
#2, we have to work on your grammar.
#3, probably best. If only we could eat as many as we'd like.
#4, I like chocolate.
#5, so unfair!
#6, spill!
#7, share!

Is Jen short for Jennifer? What nationality is Daiker?

Grandpa said...

I not understanding what quirks are but since you are not sharing it's ok.
I never liked cupcakes until my grandson's birthday - now I want it all the time :)

1. I'm a "girl" too--or I used to be
2. I am no where near 25, thus the "girl" label gets harder and harder to pull off without laughing at myself.
3. Blech, cupcakes give me a headache
4. I love gummy sweets (or sour)
5. I too have a day job (it really does occupy way too much of my time)
6. Oh, obsessions, yes...yes
7. Quirks? Hmm, towels must, MUST, be folded in a trifold, both directions! MUST I say!

Lindsay N. Currie said...

Jen - how do you pronounce your last name??

I love those gummy sour watermelons. . . A LOT!

J. L. Jackson said...

I'm a Jen, too. And I'm not admitting my age. Lol

upinthecosmos said...

Hey, we have a lot in common! I too am a day job working, girl who says she likes cupcakes but hardly ever eats them and loves sour sweets, unhealthy obsessions and weird quirks. The only difference is I'm 35.... oh ok, I'm 38 but it's just a number right???

Vicki Rocho said...

Aaahhhhh! The grammar! My eyes, my EYES!

LOL.

I wanna hear more about the weird quirks.

Jen Daiker said...

I is sorry the grammar is making everyone uncomfortable. Change it I will not.

Angela Felsted said...

You have unhealthy obsessions, hmmmmm . . . what could those be?

Catherine Denton said...

I laughed when I saw your title. Of course we love hearing more about you!

I can be obsessive too. So now I want to hear more about your obsessions.

Hmmm . . . Girl, 27, has day job, several mad writer friends and more mad non-writer friends. Love cupcakes, also hardly ever eat them because I'm 5'2 or 5'3 (not sure) and curvy and I put on weight easily. Total chocoholic. Love books, the sea, walking with my headphones in, driving lessons that go well and travelling.

Rhonda@laugh-quotes said...

Fun post and it gives me an idea for when I get to "R." One question, what is the day job?

Lindsay said...

Ha. Great stuff.

Pst... I like cupcakes but don't eat them much as well. :)

Jennifer said...

Very funny! Cupcakes are awesome and you should try to eat more while you are in your twenties. I being in my *ahem* late thirties can only indulge on occasion so only every other day. Day jobs suck!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hey, Jen,

i'm a dude.

Hitting a milestone birthday in a few weeks.

I write, illustrate, and interior design.... the latter two are my current career.

I'm a former model.

AND.... I love anything sweet. Now that's enough about me. OH! Wait! ONE MORE! I am a HARRY POTTER FREAK!... but you knew that....LOL

San said...

So nice to get to know you a bit better with your J post. Though I've been doing a bit of that throughout your blog the last couple of days. You are my J today and I am happy to "know" you. Keep up the good work. Your blog is stunning and I like your style :)

Cheers!

Katie Mills said...

;) NO fair not sharing quirks! I'm Katie. But it begins with a 'K' so I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Mariah Irvin said...

CUPCAKES!

You should eat more of them. They're good for you :)

Jaydee Morgan said...

Always love hearing more about you! A great J post for sure :)

Tracey Neithercott said...

I love finding out more about you Jen. I too am a girl. I too love cupcakes but don't eat them often--and that's a good thing. If I ate a cupcake every time I felt like one I'd be 400 pounds.

Patricia Lynne said...

I as well like cupcakes but rarely eat them. I'd rather make them and let others consume the calories.

Dafeenah said...

Girls rule boys drool! Love the grammar. Sour is way better than sweet any day. We just have to work on the cupcake thing other than that perfection!

Tomorrow is the letter of my name...I am so going to copy you! You will have to come check it out :)

Marjorie said...

I love cupcakes too, but I don't eat them often either.

I have a serious pet peeve about using kitchen utensils in a way it was not intended. That includes the dishes.

The Book Gatherer said...

Great post!! Sour sweets are the best!

Susan said...

I like your post.
I eat less cupcakes than I'd like.
I am beyond 25.
I will follow your future posts.
I think you're interesting. :)

I'm blogging for the A to Z Challenge too:

J A C Q U E L I N E said...

I also love sour sweets!

Laura Pauling said...

I love cupcakes too though I hardly ever eat them or make them. And they have to homemade with good frosting. None of the grocery stuff knock offs.

Matthew MacNish said...

I'm curious about the origins of Daiker too, it's such a cool name, but I suppose it's your husband's.

Sarah Allan said...

Hi, Jen!

1. I is also a girl.
2. I is a 28 years old.
3. I love cupcakes more than regular cake because they're personally sized.
4. I love sweet and salty flavor combinations.
5. I don't have a day job at the moment.
6. I have both healthy and unhealthy obsessions.

M.J. Fifield said...

1. I'm a girl too.

2. I'm not 25 years old but that's the age I like to pretend I still am.

3. I love cupcakes but I don't have them often as I am baking challenged.

4. I love chocolate.

5. I too have a day job. I too am not happy about it.

6. Unhealthy obsessions? Yeah, okay. I've definitely got some of those.

7. Ditto.


A fun post...a good use of J day!

Peevie Juice said...

I is in love with the beautiful simplicity your blog is.

Susanne Drazic said...

Fun post!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I watch ten movies a week. Sometimes more...

Ella said...

Fun post Jen; I love cupcakes and can't eat them...so go eat one for me, will yah?! ;-D

Quirks are what makes us unique~

Jeanne said...

Hmm. Like your post although I realized that my sons are even older than you. You are about as old as 1/3 of my body. Now that is sad. I am curious about weird quirks. I must admit that intrigues me because I think people with weird quirks are really cool. Unless it's being a serial killer or something. That's a pretty big "quirk." You will see some of my weird quirks in my writing. One of them is to research toilets and collect little models of toilets, and books of toilets etc. Is that a weird quirk?

Empty Nest Insider said...

The frosting on the cupcake is the best part. Especially if it's chocolate fudge. Nice to learn more about you. Julie

Jeanmarie Anaya said...

ooooh! Fun game!

1. I is a girl, too.
2. I is celebrating the 11th anniversary of my 25th birthday. ;)
3. I like cupcakes but only with chocolate frosting.
4. I love sour sweets, too.
5. I have a day job and a 24-7 Mommy job, too.
6. I have unhealthy obsessions, too.
7. I have weird quirks, too.

Dying to know you're weird quirks!

Julie said...

I was going to do this same post today! Lol I'm still going to. :)
Sharesies??

Chris Phillips said...

I only like cupcakes that moms make their kids for birthdays, store bought are nasty, designer ones are meh.

nutschell said...

Nice to know a little bit more about the awesome blogger behind the equally awesome blog. Are you sure you don't want to share your quirks with us?:P

Brigitte said...

Great to know a little more about you! :D

1. Girl power!
2. I'll be 25 in.... 5 years!
3. I discovered a new love for vegan cupcakes from this adorable store in my city. They're 10 times better than normal ones and you don't feel guilty afterward! xD
4. I love japanese sweets. They're amazing & addictive. *-*
5. I haven't had a part-time job since I moved. I'm starting to get desperate D8
6. I get way too attached to my own unhealthy obsessions!
7. I'm a rainbow of weird quirks!

Ellie said...

Weird quirks and unhealthy obsessions hey? Too tell. I want to know if any match mine!

I can be quite OCD when I discover something new. For example, last week Mr. G pursauded me to watch a Charles Bronson movie and now I want to see all his films. Like, now. LOL.

Myne Whitman said...

Nice to know more about you. Don't we all have our obsessions and quirks? lol....

Nicole Zoltack said...

I want to hear about your obsessions! And your quirks!

Jennifer Hillier said...

Your quirks are what make you YOU! I'm pretty sure we'd all love you even if you shared them (maybe even more!).

I'm a Jennifer too, but grew up a Jenny and only more recently did I realize I like hearing the name Jennifer. I love cupcakes but don't bake them. I love candy but rarely eat any. I fantasize every day about having short, easy hair but yet I'll never cut mine more than a couple of inches at a time. I prefer cats to dogs, and snow to rain, and I love my friends like they're family.

Susan said...

Hi Jen! I found you through the A to Z Challenge - which I'm doing also!

To answer your questions:

I am also a girl (but somewhat older than you are!). I LOVE Cupcakes, and eat them more often than I should, but not nearly as often as I should like. I also like sour sweets (which means lemon cupcakes are best). I, too, have a day job and write as an avocation. I also write as part of my day job, though mostly things that probably cure insomnia in normal people.

Great to meet you via your blog!

SweetMarie83 said...

I have weird quirks and unhealthy obsessions too...but I think that makes us fun and unpredictable and it's good to keep people on their toes, don't you think? ;-)

Jennifer Shirk said...

That's funny because I think I'm getting some "healthy" obsessions. There is something wrong with me. LOL

Ann said...

Cupcakes are very popular in the blogshere arena. Quirks sound interesting....

LesleyRH said...

I say you should share with us your weird quirks!!

Mimi said...

You is funny too!
I also a girl, tho not 25! more than double that number.
But it's only a number.
I think cupcakes overrated, really buns, but whatever you like, go for it.
Obsessions? What they??

Nicki Elson said...

Well, the remaining letters should leave you with plenty of opportunity to expand upon #6 & 7...yes?

Michelle in a shell said...

Pooh to day-jobs! :/

V. Furnas said...

Day jobs suck!!!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

And guess what tomorrow is? K is for Karen...woot! :) lol.

Quit your day job so you can stay home and eat cupcakes with me all day. ;)

Aubree said...

ew day job. they are not fun!

Samantha Sotto-Yambao said...

Sour sweets make day jobs go by faster ;-)

David L Macaulay said...

You must have got lots of new followers from being top of the A-Z challenge. Interesting posts. I'm definitely following.

Donea Lee said...

Unhealthy obsessions, huh? :) All of mine happen to be with food... (I'm daydreaming of baked goods as we speak...err, type.)
