Irene Barnett is a comedy writer living in Santa Barbara. She is a frequent (and only) contributor to the comedy website leftofplumb.com. Irene is also a software executive and breeder of twin humans. She hates chickens, has a soft spot for hobos and her inner thoughts are often in the voice of Werner Herzog.
Her partner in the lunacy of raising children is Jim, a lovely, mild-mannered balance to her impatience, irritability and general weirdness. Irene is currently making the rent by assuming the identity of a high-powered executive for a software consulting firm that is based out of Seattle while she really tries to live the life of a writer in Santa Barbara, CA.
She loves paddleboarding, movies, sitting and staring, and shiny things. She has a dog named Calvin and, despite what you may read, she actually does love her kids and husband very much. And, she loves to laugh more than anything on the globe except maybe cursing.
Oh, and finally, don’t believe a word she says.
