Wow No Thank You

Oks and is courted by Hollywood left Chicago and moved into a house with a garden that reuires repairs and know how with her wife and two step children in a small white Republican town in Michigan where she now hosts book clubs This is the bourgeois life of dreams She goes on bad. Convenience is the number one driver of everything I doIt s been a tough few weeks Working from home and social distancing was starting to mess with my mojo Even as a natural born introvert I could understand why Tom Hanks character was talking to a coconut called Wilson in the movie Castaway My incarceration had its moments I was starting to get Stockholm Syndrome with myselfSo thank goodness for the fabliss Sam Irby What better way to spend the last day of the Easter long weekend than by hunkering down and spending time with my favourite human sloth These days disgusting cozy clothes are my main sartorial vibeSam I had previously crossed paths with her earlier book We Are Never Meeting In Real Life Which I enjoyed so much that my mouth was sore from grinning like the proverbial Cheshire Cat Despite some of the very serious topics she covered in that book overall it was a brilliant confessional of stuff that irks most of us And it s always the trivial stuff that has the highest irk factorI loved her then and I love her now Her humour is wickedly irreverent She s sassy She pulls no punches She tells it like it is She thinks what you re thinking and verbalises those thoughts Out loud Real loud Noooo filter She says stuff you d probably only say after a very long liuid lunch with your favourite girlfriends three sheets to the windWhat s not to love about someone who openly admits An eight o clock movie on Tuesday night sounded plausible last Thursday but now it s Tuesday afternoon And how about Going out on Saturday night sounded great on Wednesday but now Saturday is here and I m in my cozy clothes I hear you Much as the recent shutdownlockdown is not to my liking I m still someone who s perfectly happy to potter about and read a good book rather than mingle Reading about her occasional social forays had me in stitches I am up five hours forty seven minutes and nineteen seconds past my bedtime and that is a dangerous place to be awake at rat o clock in uncomfortable shoes and itchy eye makeupThere is so much subtle and not so subtle humour in these essays Sam has an amazing observational eye that is spot on And talks about random topics that had me amused no end I don t know if this is some sort of reverse profiling but I can usually glance at a person and know at first sight that we re probably going to get along I don t have it down to a science I m not researching shit dude but here are some dead giveaways lists uirky attributes to being a kindred spiritThanks Sam for the great ab workout from laughing so much My sinuses have cleared as well Maybe it s a good thing I m in social isolation so no one has to see that Yes I grinned just as much this time around Sam you rock Incredible truly is the runaway review for this book By the author herself Too funnyWow no thank you is a winner winner chicken dinner In fact I m going to use that title in everyday conversation Just throw it in for no good reason When I am eventually released into the world and partake in a bit of conversingThis was the perfect tonic for these way too serious and way too anxious times Do yourself a favour and settle in with this one Time will fly Trigger warning Offensive language bodily functions etc etc yadda yadda Life s too short Don t be precious Let go and laugh Disclaimer All care given but no responsibility taken or however the saying goes Turns out Wilson was a volleyball thanks Edgarr Alien Pooh for being a sharp Eagle Eye and cinephile Hmmmwell I knew he was talking to something spherical What can I say I saw the movie a decade ago

Dates with new friends spends weeks in Los Angeles taking meetings with skinny luminous peoples while being a cheese fry eating slightly damp Midwest person with neck pain and no cartilage in her knees and hides Entenmann's cookies under her bed and unopened bills under her pillow. Find all of my reviews at Back when I had feelings my self esteem was a toilet Dear Sam Irby YMMV because her stories are about things like dropping hamsters due to aggressive menstrual cycles and shitting her pants and various other swimsuit area issues women sometimes have But she also talks about marriage and step parenting and her cats and everything else that isn t uite so in your face and also Barry knows booksAnd she is a woman of a certain age who grew up dreaming of being able to channel the lives of Veronica Sawyer Vickie Miner and Daria Morgendorffer who listened to badass bitches like Hole and Liz Phair and believes this video could uite possibly be the great unifier Not to mention fantasizes about calling 911 regarding real life issues such as Hello 911 I ve been lying awake for an hour each night reliving a two second awkward experience I had in front of a casual acuaintance three years ago for eight months And just gets it regarding being a fat person I can t watch This Is Us because even though the brothers are hot and the dad is a smoke show in the first couple episodes the fat girl doesn t get to be much than fat and wow no thank you Maybe there are fat people sitting around silently weeping about being fat every minute of every day but that is a redemptive arc thin people like to see on television and it s just not the fucking truth Plus we have the same policy regarding interactions with strangers on the intertubes There s no mute button for the woman at the grocery store who won t stop asking you where the shampoo is even though you re pushing your own cart while wearing both sunglasses and a coat But you know who you can mute Everyone you hate on the Internet I double dipped on this one and read part of it on the Kindle while listening to part while taking the dog for his daily stroll through the hood Irby s delivery style just like her writing may not be for everyone but for me the dry droll reading added an extra level of hilarity If you don t shy away from stories that are a little okay A LOT crass I recommend all three of her books
