Oh my god she really loves the image of poor little old arthritic jack lugging suitcases of books to the post office in the rain, doesn't she.I got my bloody money back, and gave it to my local foodbank.
I think this one was my favourite missive:
Hi everyone! Thankyou for your continuing patience - this is proving to be a long process and I just want you all to know that I am chipping away at it every single day. I fell and badly injured my knee a few weeks ago, and still continued to limp up to the post office lugging a suitcase of books. Today I dragged books through the rain, wheezing with a chest infection. Reading some of the comments here is disheartening, but the nice messages and comments are a joy to read. A few housekeeping updates will follow, but can I plead with you, I am doing my very best, can we please, please keep the negativity to a minimum as it is mentally battering to read - and ESPECIALLY as some of the most vocally megative of you HAVE RECEIVED REFUNDS and so have no further investment in this project other than to try to stir the pot. You know who you are and you are driving me to a complete mental breakdown. It is bullying and you should be frankly ashamed of yourselves. If you had a refund through PayPal, unfortunately you can still comment here. I am loathe to name and shame you but if I have to, I will, so the others know not to pay attention to your sniping and griping. Sorry to come down hard but it is frustrating for those who have had refunds to be still here causing trouble, and I'm sorry it's come to this. The rest of you - your books are on the way. Thankyou for your patience.
Oh my god, what kind of school do you work at?! We never get our temperatures checked. Occasionally the headteacher’s PA comes round with hand sanitiser.Haha we have the thermal scanner cameras for the kids, but staff get done by a guy at the gate through the car window. I know from the olden days tracking fertility that your temperature spikes when you are ovulating- the guard in the gate could tell you the menstral cycle of everyone in the school by now! 36.1 is my baseline.
I can only dream of Jack’s record breaking coffee thermometer.
Jack doesn’t have the commitment to be good at anything requiring effort. Sewing, knitting...she could spend all the money in the world on nice stuff but it’s not going to make her a chef or a seamstress or good knitter.*whispers* I bought an over locker this week and I love it, it’s like my version of “my preciousssss”...
I must say I never expected to see a Sewing Jack.
Her first book A Girl Called Jack was successful (it’s her best book because she was still using simple, cheap recipesThis is will be old hat to some of you but I'm still relatively new to Jack Watching as a sport so forgive me for seeking a brief recap. Why was the book on Kickstarter in the first place? Judging from the rest of the slop collections she pumps out she doesn't seem to have much difficulty getting published. Really what I'm asking is have I missed a hilarious chaos?
Why did she need a Kickstarter if her first book was successful?Jesus H Christ I’ve just been scanning through the Kickstarter comments, what a shitshow. Her updates are making me HOWL though - how DARE you bunch of bullies SNIPE and GRIPE at me to deliver a product you’ve literally paid for. Your refund’s on the way, babes.
