I’m Ashley.  I’m 27 years old, I live in Atlanta, I’m a freelance writer and I’m single.  If you just read that last part and thought either Why? or Poor thing, then I would advise you to read no further.

The name of this blog originates from my last name, which is Hesseltine.  When I played high school basketball (and I use the term “play” very loosely), the coach came up with the clever idea to yell “What time is it?!  It’s Hesseltiiiiime!” when I came out on the court.  However, I never actually got ON the court, so he only got to say it when I did something good during practice…which still wasn’t very often.  My friend Andrea caught wind of this story and took it a step further, singing the “Hammertime” tune with “Hesseltine” inserted on special occasions.  I’m not going to lie – I love my last name and don’t plan on changing it anytime soon.

I could talk about myself forever, but I’ll just let the blog speak for itself.  I started out with a more “organized” plan for this blog, then just said “eff it.”  I’m just going to write about the stuff that happens in my life that I think is funny and hope others do, too.  Chances are, each blog entry is a story that I’ve already told someone and THEY thought it was funny, so if it sucks, someone else (ahem, my mom) is to blame.  A lot of these stories will PROBABLY involve drinking, so if you don’t drink, you might want to start.

Happy reading!
