Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir)

Summary from Goodreads:
When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it.

In the irreverent "Let's Pretend This Never Happened," Lawson's long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments--the ones we want to pretend never happened--are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives.

This is snort-to-yourself-on-the-bus funny. Especially the chapter of stories from when she worked in HR.  I've become a loyal blog reader/twitter followers of Jenny's since reading this and it's completely worth it.

Also, weird taxidermy.  That is all.
