Three things you might not know about Jennifer...
1. I used to sneak out of my serious management consulting job by telling my assistant I had "client meetings." Then I'd go watch three movies in a row at the indie theater up the block.
2. I have been my current height (5'4") since I was in about the 4th grade and was the tallest kid in class for several years. As a result I feel much taller than I am and probably (inside my mind) think I am taller than you.
3. I was a Libertarian for 5 minutes in college because of a crush on a dude. He graduated that year, and there weren't enough Libertarians to keep Libertarian Club going so I was appointed president and inherited his giant box of unfunny t-shirts.
Ergo, I am the former president of the Georgetown University Libertarians.
