Who knew that "Cathy" was not just Cathy Guisewite but also, at least, her sister Mickey (and maybe the other sisters as well.) Reading Mickey's stories, its the voice of "Cathy."

Could not read all the stories so did not read every page of this book.

What we have here is an historical tome from that dark, pre cellphone, even pre-dvd age--the early 1990's. While reading, I picked up the angst--that Mickey describes and I felt--back in those days. There was this anxiety many woman felt about not me

Is this even in print anymore? Read this when I was a kid, had no idea what the author was talking about, loved it anyway. Still have my copy. Which used to belong to my aunt and was printed in 1993. Includes chapters on how when you rent a VHS tape, you always end up falling asleep during the movie and forgetting to return it; the annoying people who speed through traffic talking on their car phones (not cell phones); and how there's no good way to organize printed photos. Dated! But awesome.
