Hi, I’m Jana a 30 year old divorced …. i’m not sure what. Girl? (nope too young), lady? (just not me), woman? (god no)…. lesbian? (mmm yikes I hate that word). But the fact of the matter is, last year I left my husband and I’m now about to move in with my girlfriend.
Last week I had a Eureka! moment. I had just finished fixing the blocked pipes under the kitchen sink (errr I know, it’s a total cliche and sounds like the beginning of a cheap porno but it’s not and I promise this actually happend) and totally stunned by my success I turned to my girlfriend and said “That’s it, I officially don’t need a man for anything now!”
Taking that and the past year into consideration I probably should use the “L” Word. But I just can’t. There’s something dangerous about it, unforgiving almost and I don’t think I’m the only one in my position that feels that way….. anyway that’s a whole other blog.
In short last year I managed to; leave my home, get divorced, change career, chop all my hair off and shack up with a girl.
So life really isn’t what it seems, I thought I would have it all sorted by now. Turns out I’m happier and more clueless than I’ve ever been.
Now I spend my time writing, producing and performing. It’s a marathon away from the sidelines of the polo field and my previous life where the highlights of my day were getting grass stains out of white jeans or hoovering the whole house in under 20 minuets! This year it seems nothing is impossible………
Just in case this post hasn’t sounded ridiculous enough I’m off to a production meeting for DEATH SHIP 666 – A Titanic Parody Play (think Airplane! /Naked Gun humour) with BoxStepFilms. I’ll be playing Rich Lady, head of Mega-Scam enterprises and insurer of The Titanic! MWHAA HA HA HA HAAA
You can come and see for yourselves in June @ The Courtyard Theatre in Shoreditch or at The Edinburgh Festival!
