Have a burning question? What about a joke you want to share? Flick me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org – I promise to reply to every email! (And I really, really like jokes)
Amy’s a twenty-something who has been out of university for a couple of years, and has realised that this means she’s pretty much a grown up. She chooses to say “pretty much” because she still cleans her room by pushing dirty clothes under the bed, considered cereal a perfectly acceptable dinner choice, and loves to casually stalk through her friends’ Facebook pages while in her giraffe onesie.
Rest assured, she knows just how lucky she is. She’s not a teenager. (Authors note: I’m almost certain that I have been a teenager, perhaps in a previous life?)
Amy likes commas.
Yeah, yeah – what about ‘peonut’?
While it was never intended to be, peonut.com has morphed into somewhat of a ‘fitness blog’ (even typing that I used air quotes). I say ‘fitness blog’ with a certain amount of sarcasm. That, and ‘yay-I-lost-weight,-but-oh-wait-now-it’s-all-back-and-I-dont-want-to-go-to-the-gym blog’ doesn’t have the same ring to it.
If we’re all being honest, we probably all relate the the latter. But ‘fitness blog’ gives something to strive for, no?
Yes, that’s all very well, but what does ‘peonut’ mean?
Honestly? Nothing. One day I mistyped ‘peanut’ as ‘peonut’ – I liked it, it stuck, so I used it.
But I like to think it alludes to a gorgeous bikini-ready hourglass figure just waiting to appear to much pomp and fanfare next summer!
