Desktop Girl of the Week: Jen Friel

Well, this one is long overdue. It's time to give my nerdy buddy some recognition, and make @JenFriel the Desktop Girl of the Week.

For those that don't know Jen, she's... well... she really defies definition. She's been an actress, a model and is now in charge of the nerd revolution that is (and yes, I'm a contributor there, so I'm biased, but I don't care).

If you think you recognize Jen, well, it's probably because she did a series of Snorg Tees ads a few years back and still occasionally shows up in one of those skyscraper ads that appear on various web sites (don't lie, you've clicked on them before, and not just to check out the T-shirts). Jen also had a run as Suitcase #16 on the syndicated version of "Deal or No Deal" (to clarify, she was the model holding the suitcase, not the suitcase itself. She's not a Transformer, as far as I know).

When Jen isn't being unapologetically awesome, she's part of Ford's "Fiesta Movement", and she's planning a Nerdy World Tour, so she may be coming to a town near you soon.

As for me, well, I met Jen WAY back in the day, when she and my sister were friends (note to all my readers: be nice to your little sister's friends, because they may grow up to be both hot and awesome), but we re-met (if that is such a thing) last September when we went to the Britney Spears concert in Las Vegas together. That makes Jen the 6th DGOW selection I've ever met in person, joining Stacy Keibler, Britney Spears, Hayden Panettiere, Kristen Bell and Jessica Biel.

As always with DGOW, I’ll provide a widescreen (1680x1050) image for downloading. If you want to see past DGOW, then just check the archive album.
