Q: I have heard of Untypically Jia. Is she as gorgeous as the myths proclaim?
Q: How did you come up with the name Untypically Jia?
A: Jia is a nickname from high school. My real name is Jessica but I hate it. If you want to know why I don't like my given name, you should ask any of the other 6,478 Jessica's that you know. As for the "Untypically" part, I thought I had made the word up. Turns out, I didn't. Making up real words seems to be a habit of mine though, seeing that when I was four years old I thought I invented the word "fuck". Turns out, I'm not that creative. I am however apparently a good eavesdropper.
Q: I'm new here, where do I even begin exploring the awesomeness?
A: In The All Knowing Guide to Untypically Jia!

Q: What the hell is wrong with you?
A: Lots. But my issues make me ME.
Here's a general list of things I'm working on.
Q: How can you post a picture like that and claim to be a feminist?
A: Because this blog is about 25% satire, and it's that part.
Plus those are my boobs. Don't tell me what to do with my boobs.
Q: I just noticed that you're from the US but you often spell words in a UK fashion, why is that?

Q: What does your husband look like?
A: He looks like this..
Q: Does your husband have a blog?
A: Yes! He blogs about many things geekery at The Amazing Spider-Matt. If you'd also like to hear about his Xbox score or watch him try to offend celebrities you can follow him on twitter: @AmzngSpiderMatt
A: Yes. My husband thinks I misquote him a lot. My younger sister thinks I'm funny. Motherly just figured out Facebook. My mother in law thinks I swear too much.
Q: Why don't you just stick to one blog niche?
A: Because it's my blog, not yours. I am my own niche.
Q: Why do you have pink hair?
A: Because I've discovered that pink is my happy place. I colored my hair pink and somehow, the Jia I thought I'd lost a long time ago resurfaced. Pink is one piece of the big puzzle that continues to save me every single day. (Updated Answer: I actually don't have pink hair anymore. I have purple hair as of May 2013. Pink was my happy place, but purple makes me a little naughty. Mrow.)
Q: What brand of hair dye do you use?
A: I've used two brands in the past and I love them both. For a darker pink I use Beyond the Zone: Party Time Pink, and for a softer look I use Manic Panic: Cotton Candy. For my purple hair, I use Manic Panic: Purple Haze.
Q: Why do you wear wigs?
A: In addition to poor hair genes and medical conditions that cause hair loss, I also take medication that can sometimes cause hair loss. To cope with this, I developed an awesome wig addiction. My favorite place to buy wigs is on eBay. The best shops I've found are Night Panda and Cosplay Anime Wigs.
Q: You've reviewed weight loss products in the past, are their any that you'd current recommend?
A: No! Lovely person I recommend you love yourself for exactly who you are! This is a "No Diet Talk" blog.
