Jen is from Texas, so don’t try to pass off your crappy inferior barbecue from anywhere else on her.

Jen been addicted to consuming sequential art since late middle school. Other hobbies include eating, baking and cooking, watching cartoons, being Asian and eagerly anticipating whatever project Joss Whedon does next.
