Troublemaker: Anette

6 May

As many of you may remember, I was recently given the honor of being Le Clown’s assistant for a week. This entailed writing a short post about him which I thought honored him in the way that someone of such magnificence deserved. I had so much fun with it, and was excited when Anette over at Ink. said she’d be interested in “hanging out” with me as well.

I loved this idea. Love. Lovey love love. I’m always looking for new ways to connect with my readers, and what better way than to cavort around the greater Portland area creating mischief with them? And so, a new series was born: Team Tonic’s Troublemakers.

Even though Le Clown was a blast to be around (you’ll always be my first!) I must confess that it was nice having some girl time.

We decided we wanted to look cute and sporty (we didn’t actually want to work out) so we went to the Old Navy sale:

I tried to toss a frisbee around with her, but she couldn’t catch to save her life:

She tortured me by buying breaded meats:

We put on our best whore makeup and went to a club to pick up guys:

We went on a business trip to Boston:

We got our periods together:

We sat out on the patio drinking iced coffees, and talked crap about people:

We found out what to expect when taking our va-jay-jays on vacation:

I had a great time this week, Anette! Despite you buying breaded meats (you know I don’t like meat buried beneath a crumbly coating) you and I really had some bonding moments in there. I especially loved that thing you told me which could put you on a homeland security watch list. Oh, should I not have said that?

Thanks for the memories…

If any of you are interested in having a mildly entertaining time with me, please e-mail along with a picture of your choice. If you don’t feel like getting up close and personal, you can observe me from a safe distance by visiting my Facebook,Β TwitterΒ or Expats Post pages.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

    Speaking of Portland. You ever seen “Portlandia” Jen?

    • Jen and Tonic 05/14/2012 at 3:55 pm #

      I have, and while it’s slightly exaggerated for effect, it’s pretty accurate πŸ™‚

        My long time friend, the girl I call Eloise on here, said I’d love it there. I laughed because I probably would. And then I saw the show.

          HA! Portland is a wonderful city, really. It’s just very…quirky.

          • PAZ 05/14/2012 at 4:04 pm #

            Oh I believe you! Quirky = me.

    Ah, it looks like you had a great time, I’m so jealous. I would love to hang out with two such charming, intelligent and stunningly beautiful ladies.

    • Jen and Tonic 05/08/2012 at 9:39 am #

      OOOOOH. What an idea! More than one person hanging out with me at a time. Food for thought πŸ™‚

    As a fellow Portlander, I think you should have done more “weirdness” really show some Portlandia!

    • Jen and Tonic 05/07/2012 at 9:36 pm #

      Good call! I have a few people coming up who would really appreciate the weirdness of PDX. I’m going to have to find the guy who plays the bagpipes on a unicycle while wearing a Darth Vader mask.

      • Maggie O'C 05/07/2012 at 9:42 pm #

        Nice! Or go stare at that statue man outside of Pioneer Place. What the hell with that guy?!

    You are crazy…I love it! πŸ™‚

    • Jen and Tonic 05/07/2012 at 10:49 am #

      Your appreciation of my crazy makes me think YOU are also crazy…and I love that in a girl.

    Looks like fun, but holy crap, Annete hogged the whole bed!!!

    • Jen and Tonic 05/07/2012 at 10:27 am #

      She did!! She also made me spoon with her, and forced me to be the little spoon. She’s such an Alpha female!

    I want to hang out!!! I’ve never been to the West Coast:)

    • Jen and Tonic 05/06/2012 at 10:18 pm #

      What better way to see the West Coast than with yours truly? With our forces combined, this side of the country will never be the same.

      • Jennifer Worrell 05/07/2012 at 4:04 am #

        Amen…then on to the East Coast:) Coastal Domination!!!!!!

  7. Jen 05/06/2012 at 6:46 pm #

    Mwhahaha! I think I shall have to do some international travelling to hang out with my twin!! Keep your eyes peeled for my email! (I need to renew my passport).

    • Jen and Tonic 05/06/2012 at 10:16 pm #

      YEEEEEEEEEEEEES! Sadly, there will be no vegemite here for you to eat as it is the snack of the devil.

      • Jen 05/06/2012 at 10:38 pm #

        We’ll see about that!!! Email deployed!

  8. Dianne Wing 05/06/2012 at 5:24 pm #

    How clever you are…no wonder Le Clown admires you so. πŸ˜‰

    • Jen and Tonic 05/06/2012 at 10:16 pm #

      Thanks, Dianne! I think Le Clown might also admire me because I wire $100 weekly to his offshore bank account.

      • Dianne Wing 05/06/2012 at 10:47 pm #

        Then he will never feel the same love for me, lol.

    Reblogged this on Ink. and commented:
    This week Jen and I spent real quality girl-time together. What a great time we had!

  10. Ink. [Anette] 05/06/2012 at 4:09 pm #

    Yee-haw! We sure had a good time girl! So happy you brought your camera along. Nothing like looking at pictures of good times πŸ™‚ The breaded meat was for my cat, not for you my dear. Gosh no, breaded meat is CAT FOOD Jen! I know I was a bit passive on the sporty activities, the frisbee and the memorable pillow fight you had with the hotel manager, while I told you about the homeland thing. No hard feelings Jen, you know how hard it is NOT to get on that list right πŸ˜‰
    It was a wonderful week Jen. Let me know if you ever go to Japan and need a travel companion okay 😎

    • Jen and Tonic 05/06/2012 at 10:15 pm #

      Yes! Japan is a must, and thanks to Cosmo Magazine, we know what we need to pack for our va-jay-jays before we go on our trip.

      I do know how hard it is to stay off the watch list. I think I’ve been on it since preschool.

      You are such a good sport! Thanks again for the idea πŸ™‚
