Eden M. Kennedy

mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press, 2011).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

Apparently I belong to a new category of human being: I am a "crafter," subcategory "beader." Because you know what? I just don't feel comfortable taking an occasional trip to the bead store, picking up some flexi-wire and a couple of tubes of seed beads, and spending Sunday afternoon on my bed stringing pretty necklaces and watching Netflix'd episodes of Six Feet Under without turning meditative busy work into a goddamned cult. Beading! I'm a beader! Does that requires that I sign up to become one of the cat sweatshirt people, or does the transformation happen so gradually that you don't notice it, you just wake up one day with a hot-glue gun in your hand and find all your Kleenex boxes have been covered in Swarovski crystals?

You know what? I barely care, and I'll tell you why.
Mr. Kitty, that's why.
MR. KITTY, MOTHERFUCKERS!
BOW BEFORE MR. KITTY!
SCRATCH HIS EARS WHILE HE FEASTS ON YOUR CREDIT CARD SOUL!
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
