Typical  Bridget: clumsy, easily distracted and neurotic. Cooking spaghetti and the tv remote still proves to be hard, and now even harder with the distracting offered by two kids and twitter. When we left Bridget in the Edge of reason, we left with hope for a happy ending. Not just for Bridget, but for every person who’s desperately looking for a partner and a place in the world. Which didn’t happen and now she’s a 52-year-old widow with two kids and a mobile phone.

Weight: undisclosed (scale broke), Cigarettes: 0, alcohol unit: 0 (still have to do job and keep said job), calories: +/- 0 before lunch (Intermittent fasting, luckily no calories in smell), excitement levels: HIGH.


The Edge of Reason is based on Persuasion by Jane Austen and follows the basic storyline: Girl is in love but is convinced that they should not be/he wants to break up. This all goes down in the typical Bridged Jones way and with very little proper communication. (small disclosure:  have not yet read Persuasion…)
