Howdy, I'm Jessica. I have a masters degree in counseling because I love to know why. I live in Austin, TX. This is how the blog got named. And this is how it morphed.
I'm originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and moved to Austin in 1995 to finish my undergraduate work. In '97 I got a degree in anthropology and a big sense of entitlement. Of course that fizzled right out as I labored under fluorescent lights and sold my soul for benefits and a steady paycheck.
I flopped around for a while, partied my balls off, forged deep and lasting bonds with my friends here and eventually got married and had a baby. Fast forward 4 years and the marriage is dissolved and I'm still flopping around. Only this time, I'm super educated, my boobs are twice as big, and I give lots of zerberts. Oh, and I also have a career path - yay!
Rooster - Father of my child, co-parent extraordinaire, divorce parnter, yadda, yadda. We've split for good. Surprisingly, we're still very connected and good friends. I often wonder what our friends think of us. You'll probably notice that he has a real name, too. At some point during our separation he asked that I change his name, but there was no way I could change it on all posts. I did my best, but in case you're wondering, that's why. Same goes for the boy.
