about us

Jen says she’d rather have to eat pizza every day than never be able to eat pizza ever again. Andrew thinks she’s vastly underestimating how utterly invasive it would be to have to eat pizza every single day of her life. Jen tells him she couldn’t live without pizza. To her, it would be a dream to have it every day. Andrew is pretty sure that she would start to have a negative association with pizza after only 20 days.

Jen and Andrew are from NYC, the rural Midwest, the 90s, the 80s, the woodwind section, the infield, the 99th percentile, and the middle of the pack. The younger of the two is the older of two. The older of the two is the younger of two, and also the youngest of five. They finish each other's sentences and sometimes fix the endings the way she likes it better. She has perfect pitch and her own style. He has freckles and his own book bag. Currently, they live in Seoul and search for sandwiches.

on the street where we live

Eliza Doolittle ends up with Professor Higgins. I didn’t remember that when I sent Jen “On the Street Where You Live” when we first started dating. Frankly, I’m not sure that I ever actually knew that. I watched a lot of musicals growing up, but it was always either passively or in protest, so I didn’t retain much story-wise. The songs I remember, though. And the one Freddy sings to Eliza was so sweet it’s a shaiyme she never ‘eard it.

Jen lived on Chestnut Street when I met her. We moved to Pine Street together and now live on a busy 로 (ro) in Seoul. We don’t have any lilac trees on our street and I can’t sing, but Jen’s my Audrey Hepburn. This site is a collection of the streets we end up on.
